The Forward Day by Day Meditation

Today's Meditation

SATURDAY, April 10          Saturday in Easter Week

Mark 16:15 And [Jesus] said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the good news to the whole creation.”

It’s easy to lose sight of some of the most important—and simplest—work we are meant to do as followers of Jesus. In our churches, we can be overwhelmed by the labors of keeping things running, of merely surviving. We can become slavishly devoted to the maintenance of familiar practices. We worry so much about rocking the boat that we aren’t as adventurous as we should be. Jesus cuts to the chase here, as he gives marching orders to his followers, and to us.

Proclaim the good news to the whole creation.
