GOSPEL  REFLECTION

‘The time is fulfilled’ – this is a decisive moment in the life of Jesus. His public ministry is about to begin.

‘Repent and believe the good news’. Jesus called for a change of heart as a response to the good news of the gospel. A new level of faith in yourself leads to a new way of seeing yourself. A new way of understanding God leads to a conversion in how we relate to God, a change of heart.

The Spirit of God who was at work in Jesus calling the disciples continues to work in our day and in our lives
