Saturday of the Sixth Week of Easter. Reflection by Rev Fr Oselumhense Anetor (Uromi Diocese)

Acts 18:23-28; John 16:23-28

We have so many gifts and talents. Unfortunately, some of us have sold our God-given gifts to the devil. Why prostitute because God gave you a beautiful face? Why use your smartness and intelligence for armed robbery and kidnapping? Why use your awesome voice for music that glorifies sexual pleasure and human wealth? Why use your natural strength for oppression of the poor and needy?

Friends, let’s learn something from Apollos, an Alexandrian Jew in today’s first reading. He used his eloquence and sound knowledge to win souls for God. His courage and boldness refuted the Jews in public and he demonstrated from the scriptures that Jesus is the Christ. It’s time to rediscover what good use we can put our talents to. Our salvation and the salvation of others might just depend on it. Make up your mind to use those talents for the glory of God today.

Good morning dear. God bless your weekend.
