Monday 28th Week of the Year.
Are you ready to sing a new song?
Jesus says he is like Jonah
who preached repentance
to the people of Nineveh.
Repentance is the first step to conversion.
It is a deliberate turning away from something
that is destroying our lives and the lives of others.
It’s a breath of fresh air.
Jesus wants us to sing with him a new song
(as we heard in today’s Psalm).
He is the strength a person needs who is struggling:
- to overcome an addiction
- in an abusive relationship
- struggling with the loss of a child, a spouse or a parent
- Or an immigrant looking for a welcome.
- Or the strength we need to lift ourselves out of the darkness of sin.
We need to join our hearts and prayers
for anyone we know is struggling to sing a new song.
The sign of Jesus is us – every time we repent,
every time – we help another person to sing a new song.
