“Rejoice because your names are written in heaven”
The 72 disciples whom Jesus sent has returned. In the gospel, when Jesus said to the 72 disciples “but rejoice, because your names are written in heaven”, Jesus was full of joy. Joyful because the disciples saw and experienced the kingdom of God. Can you imagine the pleasureable feeling when you put joy in Jesus’ heart? We are invited to bring joy to God by writing more names in heaven. We preach, we evangelize, we give hope.
Holy Spirit, ignite our hearts so that we may proclaim God to others and at the same time bring joy to God.
