Gospel: Matthew 11:20-24
“His mighty deeds”
In the gospel, Jesus reproached the towns where most of his mighty deeds had been done but still haven’t repented.
We have experienced Jesus many times doing mighty deeds in our lives; but sometimes even in witnessing for Jesus we are still not living the teachings we received from him. Jesus is always giving a second chance, reproaching us so that we may turn ourselves fully to Him.
There might be a part of our lives that is hard to give up; it could be our habits, things that entertain us temporarily, and others. Let us pray to Jesus to give us welcoming hearts so that in the moment Jesus approach us once again, we are open and ready to listen to him and become confident to live him out in our lives for we have witnessed the mighty deeds he has done.
