“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,
because he has anointed me to bring glad tidings to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim liberty to captives
and recovery of sight to the blind,
to let the oppressed go free,
and to proclaim a year acceptable to the Lord”

Luke 4 : 16 – 30

September 3, 2012 Bible Reading and Gospel

“Living out” the truth of God’s Word involves:

Celebrating One’s Faith. In a world where everyone freely chooses what they believe in, living in the truth of God’s Word means to proclaim what one believes, in all its aspects and in all circumstances. It must be embraced in its totality.

Sincerity and Candor. This means consistency with one’s thoughts, words and actions. There should be no duplicity or hypocrisy. The efforts to apply the teachings of God’s Word should not be motivated by fear or desire for praise and adulation but by authentic faith, hope and love of God.

Truthfulness with Others. The Word of God teaches peace, justice and mercy, among others. Hence, to truly live the Word of God means to practice in our dealings the values and virtues that the teachings and examples of the Gospels underscore.
