Andrew went to his brother Simon, and said to him, "We have found the Messiah (that is, the Christ)."
(John 1.41 NVT)
An outburst of generosity!
It is the first impulse of all who are drawn to Jesus. It is not to rip everything from him: all blessings, all graces. Everything to ourselves.
Far from wanting to be exclusive, the word is sharing. It is one of the key words of the kingdom. It translates into generosity, altruism. Share everything you can with others.
This generosity translates into evangelism. "We find the Messiah." Others need to know. Among them, my family, my friends, neighbors and even the ones I never knew.
"I found the Messiah".
A direction to get out of the violence, the egoism, the mediocrity of the here and now. And see the greater sense of being and existing, thinking about life, the other and already living a glimpse of eternity.
Pr Carlos R. Silva
