Today’s Readings

  • Reading I:  Colossians 2:6-15
  • Responsorial Psalm: Psalm 145
  • Gospel Reading: Luke 6:12-19

Christ is Everything

Christ alone should be the life of the Colossians. In Him God dwells and therefore the Colossians need no longer to join others in a search for God. Second, in Christ one is already circumcised and therefore one need not hanker after what is peddled by other missionaries. Lastly, they don’t need to worry about observances based on the moon and the stars since these are but shadows that point to Christ. For the modern Christian, one should find here a warning against religious syncretism and a spiritualism that is alien to the Christian gospel.

The Power that Flowed From Jesus

Wherever Jesus went the people came to him because they had heard all the things he did. They were hungry for God and desired healing from their afflictions. In faith they pressed upon Jesus to touch him. As they did so power came from Jesus and they were healed. Even demons trembled in the presence of Jesus and left at his rebuke. Jesus offers freedom from the power of sin and oppression to all who seek him with expectant faith. When you hear God’s word and consider all that Jesus did, how do you respond? With doubt or with expectant faith? With skepticism or with confident trust? Ask the Lord to increase your faith in his saving power and grace.

Colossians 2:6-15
View in: NAB NIV KJV NJB Vulg Greek
6As therefore you have received Jesus Christ the Lord, walk ye in him;
7Rooted and built up in him, and confirmed in the faith, as also you have learned, abounding in him in thanksgiving.
8Beware lest any man cheat you by philosophy, and vain deceit; according to the tradition of men, according to the elements of the world, and not according to Christ:
9For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead corporeally;
10And you are filled in him, who is the head of all principality and power:
11In whom also you are circumcised with circumcision not made by hand, in despoiling of the body of the flesh, but in the circumcision of Christ:
12Buried with him in baptism, in whom also you are risen again by the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him up from the dead.
13And you, when you were dead in your sins, and the uncircumcision of your flesh; he hath quickened together with him, forgiving you all offences:
14Blotting out the handwriting of the decree that was against us, which was contrary to us. And he hath taken the same out of the way, fastening it to the cross:
15And despoiling the principalities and powers, he hath exposed them confidently in open shew, triumphing over them in himself.
Luke 6:12-19
View in: NAB NIV KJV NJB Vulg Greek
12And it came to pass in those days, that he went out into a mountain to pray, and he passed the whole night in the prayer of God.
13And when day was come, he called unto him his disciples; and he chose twelve of them (whom also he named apostles).
14Simon, whom he surnamed Peter, and Andrew his brother, James and John, Philip and Bartholomew,
15Matthew and Thomas, James the son of Alpheus, and Simon who is called Zelotes,
16And Jude, the brother of James, and Judas Iscariot, who was the traitor.
17And coming down with them, he stood in a plain place, and the company of his disciples, and a very great multitude of people from all Judea and Jerusalem, and the sea coast both of Tyre and Sidon,
18Who were come to hear him, and to be healed of their diseases. And they that were troubled with unclean spirits, were cured.
19And all the multitude sought to touch him, for virtue went out from him, and healed all.
