Acts in extraordinary ways

Each one of us is part of God's plan. We live in the time of fulfillment, and the reign of God has come to us in the person of Christ Jesus.
ACTS IN EXTRAORDINARY WAYS

Deacon John Ruscheinsky
 
As people of faith we are called to believe that God guides and directs our personal lives as well as world events. At times in order to emphasize His providential care, God acts in extraordinary ways.
 
In today's first reading from 1 Samuel: Hannah, the wife of Elkanah, was to become the mother of Samuel, but for years she was barren. In fact she had just about come to the point of recognizing that she would never be a mother. Tomorrow in the first reading we will see how God acted on her behalf. Her son, Samuel, would be the last of the judges, those men and women who ruled Israel in God's name before the age of Israelite kings. In fact Samuel was to be the person mainly responsible for establishing the monarchy in Israel.
 
These events, and all those of the Old Testament, are important because they form part of God's overall plan leading to the coming of His Son, and even that moment in the Gospel today when Jesus said in Mark 1:15, "This is the time of fulfillment. The reign of God is at hand."
 
We are challenged to fulfill what we proclaim in the Responsorial Psalm. My vows to the Lord I will pay in the presence of all His people (Ps 116:19).
 
Points to Pray and Ponder: We have committed to You, Lord, our mind, body, and soul, for the glory of your name and for the service of all people.  May we recognize that each one of us is part of God's plan. We live in the time of fulfillment, and the reign of God has come to us in the person of Christ Jesus.
