Nineteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time – 09 August 2020
1 Kings 19:9a, 11-13a. Psalm 85:9, 10, 11-12, 13-14. Romans 9:1-5. Matthew 14:22-33.
Jesus Shows Us God. In his time of trail, Elijah is looking for the Lord to save him. The psalmist pleads for God’s salvation. Paul recounts the covenantal bond between God and all the People of God. And Jesus. Jesus feeds those who hunger. Jesus tries (again!) to go off and pray. But he sees his disciples in peril and walks on troubled water to offer courage and safety.
- How will I keep looking for God in this troubled time?
- How will I act because God choose me – and us?
- How will I take courage and not be afraid trusting in Jesus’ power to save?
