Called and sent

It is very easy, given our state of life (and formation) to believe that we are doing all great things.  However, the readings of yesterday were a good point of reflection to know that it is He who calls us, and sends us out. We only have to heed His call and put in our best.  Amos who is questioned about his origins makes it clear that he did not come to prophecy of his own accord - he was called and SENT.  Paul to Ephesians elaborates the kind of relationship to which we are called and then sent out - adopted and graciously blessed with an abundance of grace.

The Gospel again witnesses to Jesus' sending out of the disciples.  Quite easy to forget that it is He who sent us.  Or rather, it is convenient to forget His call, His mission and His presence.
