What do you do when you learn about something really important? [wait for answers]
One thing I do is tell other people about it, especially if it's something really good.
In the gospel story for today, Jesus not only tells some of the people he knows about God's love, but he also asks them to help him to tell other people. We call these people that Jesus asked to help him "disciples"... and we call ourselves "disciples" too, because we have the same job: Jesus has asked us to help share the Good News of God's Love for all people too.
Let's pray about that.
God, who calls each and every one of us to show your love by loving others, we thank you for Jesus who taught us how to do that. Help us to remember to share the Good News of your love with the other people we know. Help us to tell them both in words and in the way we love them too.
In the name of Jesus, our Christ, AMEN
