Awhile back, the angels encouraged me to write on the Gospels for Sunday. With Love and Gratitude, here is the Gospel of Luke 10:38-42. With a loving angel guided message behind it.
Jesus entered a village
where a woman whose name was Martha welcomed him.
She had a sister named Mary
who sat beside the Lord at his feet listening to him speak.
Martha, burdened with much serving, came to him and said,
“Lord, do you not care
that my sister has left me by myself to do the serving?
Tell her to help me.”
The Lord said to her in reply,
“Martha, Martha, you are anxious and worried about many things.
There is need of only one thing.
Mary has chosen the better part
and it will not be taken from her.”
Jesus often made a home in Bethany at the residence of Mary, Martha and their brother Lazarus. Jesus is friend as well as Rabbi to these siblings. Martha assumes the role of host and head of household when it is “she ” who welcomes Jesus.
Luke wants to make a statement regarding discipleship and for him, the first step is to listen. Jesus has brought the Word of Life and Martha, in her busyness is going to miss it.
Mary on the other hand, has remarkably assumed the posture of the disciple, sitting at the feet of the Lord and “listening” to what he is saying. Mary breaks a double “taboo” – leaving the kitchen where she “belonged” and sitting at a Rabbi’s feet, a place reserved for men, not women. Yet, it is this posture that Jesus affirms. Jesus clearly loves both these women and his repetition of Martha’s name signals his warm affection. It’s not her work, but her disquiet that he points out to her, and approves Mary’s decision to listen at his feet.
Discipleship requires focus, a wakeful attentiveness that can be achieved only by a peaceful heart. Mary has found it at Jesus’ feet. Ecclesiastes says there is a time for everything- to prepare a meal, and when Jesus speaks, a time to listen. [see reference]
The angels affirm that “Jesus has the Words of Everlasting Life. The Gospels are written so all generations can know the Works and Word of God and Jesus. Loving God and Jesus His Son are important for all. God loves His people, and sends His Works through HIs Son Jesus. Jesus asks all to listen to his Words and act upon them- in that , you are glorifying the One who sent Him.” ~ the Angels

St. Gabriel the Archangel
Awhile back, the angels asked me to write on the Gospels on Sundays. With love and gratitude, here is the Gospel of Luke 10:25-37- with a loving angel inspired (and guided) message behind it.
There was a scholar of the law who stood up to test him and said,
“Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?”
Jesus said to him, “What is written in the law?
How do you read it?”
He said in reply,
“You shall love the Lord, your God,
with all your heart,
with all your being,
with all your strength,
and with all your mind,
and your neighbor as yourself.”
He replied to him, “You have answered correctly;
do this and you will live.”
But because he wished to justify himself, he said to Jesus,
“And who is my neighbor?”
“A man fell victim to robbers
as he went down from Jerusalem to Jericho.
They stripped and beat him and went off leaving him half-dead.
A priest happened to be going down that road,
but when he saw him, he passed by on the opposite side.
Likewise a Levite came to the place,
and when he saw him, he passed by on the opposite side.
But a Samaritan traveler who came upon him
was moved with compassion at the sight.
He approached the victim,
poured oil and wine over his wounds and bandaged them.
Then he lifted him up on his own animal,
took him to an inn, and cared for him.
The next day he took out two silver coins
and gave them to the innkeeper with the instruction,
‘Take care of him.
If you spend more than what I have given you,
I shall repay you on my way back.’
Which of these three, in your opinion,
was neighbor to the robbers’ victim?”
He answered, “The one who treated him with mercy.”
Jesus said to him, “Go and do likewise.”
The scholar of the law has demonstrated a clear grasp of the Mosaic Law, quoting a composite of Leviticus (19:18), Deuteronomy (6:5), and Joshua (22:5) to answer Jesus’ question about the teaching of the law. But Jesus will now take him much further in his understanding by demonstrating that the “neighbor” he seeks can even be one he despises as enemy. Because cultural and religious history had turned Jews and Samaritans into bitter opponents, Jesus casts a Samaritan as hero of his story in order to demonstrate the primacy of love.
Jesus intentionally scripts the story to include a “priest” and “Levite” and places them in context that contrasts the demands of love with the legalism that infected the religion of the day like a cancer. Many Levites who served as Temple assistants in the Jerusalem Temple, lived in Jericho, about seventeen miles away. The road between was known to be dangerous; in fact, one stretch was called the “way of blood” because of frequent robberies and killings.
The priest and Levite observe the strict requirements of the Law, staying away from the victim in order to avoid ritual impurity on their way to serve in the Temple. But Jesus seeks to show a better way and his role model is a social outcast- a Samaritan who goes well beyond any reasonable expectations to care for the victim. He washes and anoints the man and then bandages him, probably with torn strips of his own clothing. He leaves a large amount of money for his care and promises more if that’s not enough.
Now Jesus asks the scholar to answer his own question about which one was the neighbor. Mercy is the attribute of God that makes us like Him. Only with a merciful heart can we love our neighbor as ourselves- and is what is needed to be a neighbor. [see reference]
“Jesus loves you entirely and has set an example for all . Jesus’ love surpasses the human heart – a Divine love that is so strong, it is eternal , unconditional and Divinely understanding. Using this Love within your life for others will get the attention of the Lord, and increase the Love within everyone. Loving your neighbor as yourself brings blessings upon every person you love. Love is what heals and the Love of Christ is with you beloved, and will always be with you. Love one another and Love God first beloved- who loves you entirely and the most. Jesus will always help you love and so will God when you ask sincerely. Love will overflow within you and others when all choose to love openly and choosing God first is being asked and required from God Himself- who loves you. God is merciful and loves you with His Holy and unlimited and eternal Love and will always be with you.” ~ The Angels

A channeled message of love from St. Michael with the angels
Awhile back, the angels asked me to post on the Gospel for Sundays. With love and gratitude, here is the Gospel of Luke 10:1-12, 17-20
At that time the Lord appointed seventy-two others
whom he sent ahead of him in pairs
to every town and place he intended to visit.
He said to them,
“The harvest is abundant but the laborers are few;
so ask the master of the harvest
to send out laborers for his harvest.
Go on your way;
behold, I am sending you like lambs among wolves.
Carry no money bag, no sack, no sandals;
and greet no one along the way.
Into whatever house you enter, first say,
‘Peace to this household.’
If a peaceful person lives there,
your peace will rest on him;
but if not, it will return to you.
Stay in the same house and eat and drink what is offered to you,
for the laborer deserves his payment.
Do not move about from one house to another.
Whatever town you enter and they welcome you,
eat what is set before you,
cure the sick in it and say to them,
‘The kingdom of God is at hand for you.’
Whatever town you enter and they do not receive you,
go out into the streets and say,
‘The dust of your town that clings to our feet,
even that we shake off against you.’
Yet know this: the kingdom of God is at hand.
I tell you,
it will be more tolerable for Sodom on that day than for that town.”
The seventy-two returned rejoicing, and said,
“Lord, even the demons are subject to us because of your name.”
Jesus said, “I have observed Satan fall like lightning from the sky.
Behold, I have given you the power to ‘tread upon serpents’ and scorpions
and upon the full force of the enemy and nothing will harm you. Nevertheless, do not rejoice because the spirits are subject to you,
but rejoice because your names are written in heaven.”
Joy is with those that proclaim the Gospel of Christ to the nations. This joy is the fruit of a job well done, announcing to those who would and would not hear it that the advent of God’s Kingdom is among us. Jesus is communicating here, that it is not we , but He, who brings the Truth and the fullness of the Kingdom. In fact, the seventy-two are told to speak words both to those who accept and those who reject their ministry, and in each case, the words are the same: “the Kingdom of God is at hand for you.” The Gospel is the saving work of Jesus; it is not an idea but an event, a historical moment that perdures throughout time.
Paul underscores the Truth in Romans, where he says that, “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” and then asks, “But how can they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how can they believe in HIm of whom they have not heard? and how can they hear without someone to preach?” (Romans 10:14) Significantly, Jesus sends out these disciples these disciples to prepare the way for his own ministry to the towns. Through deeds and words they are to till the soil Jesus will sow with seed.
The instructions Jesus gives are sober and remarkably detailed. After alerting them to the dangers they will face as “lambs among wolves,” he details what they can bring, where they can stay, what they can say and eat, and how they are to respond to inhospitable towns. Little is left to chance.
They return enthusing at their power over the unholy, but Jesus responds by reminding them their power came from Him and that it is salvation, not power that is the only real cause of rejoicing. [see reference]
The angels remind us: “We all have this authority through Christ our Lord. Everyone. Rejoicing in Jesus’ name is something for all, for all who call upon the name of Jesus are saved through Him, united in Him and for those that believe the Word of God, there is much rejoicing for both Heaven and Earth. Serving God through the Gospels and helping someone to believe will always triumph.
