Ephesians 3:2-12; Isaiah 12:2-3,4,5-6; Luke 12:39-48
To preach the inscrutable richness of Christ. This is what St Paul says his purpose and mission in life was.
How about us? Do we preach with our lives the inscrutable richness of Christ?
Everything else pales in comparison to this one reality that holds all of reality together.
Jesus invites us to be prudent stewards in today's gospel, "Who then is the faithful and prudent steward whom the master will put in charge of his servants to distribute food allowance at the proper time? Blessed his that servant the master finds doing so upon his arrival,"
We are all stewards of the inscrutable richness of Christ. For a moment we should remove the dross and the things that are of least important and direct our attention to that which matters most of all.
But first we must ask Jesus to reveal to us his richness in case we have forgotten or never truly experienced it. It is the encounter that makes the mission possible.
Paul encountered the inscrutable richness of Christ and does was able to give to others what he first experienced.
We too must ask the Lord to reveal his richness to us. Then we might become stewards of such beautiful grace to others.
