TODAY This Scripture is FULFILLED.

"Jesus said to them, “Today this scripture passage is fulfilled in your hearing.” (Luke 4: 21).

Monday 31st August 2020, 22nd Week in Ordinary Time. We start the reading of the Gospel of Luke for weekday Masses all the way to Advent.

Two words capture my interest in the key Scripture for today: TODAY, FULFILLED. On the Sabbath in the Synagogue in Nazareth, it was Jesus turn to read the Scriptures. He carefully selected a passage from Isaiah about the job description of the expected Messiah and read it. Then He rolled up the scroll and sat down. Then Jesus said:  “Today this scripture passage is fulfilled in your hearing.” Let us consider our keywords TODAY and FULFILLED.

#1 TODAY: Just as every human being has his birthday, so does a prophecy has its fulfillment Day. That Day is called in Scripture the Fullness of time. "There is an appointed time for everything, and a time for every affair under the heavens." (Ecclesiastes 3: 1).

At the Presentation of Jesus in the Temple, the Prophet and Prophetess Simeon and Anna mysteriously appeared in the Temple on the Day of the Presentation.

What promises are you waiting their fulfillment? Write down the promise in bold letters and put it on the wall in your bedroom where you can see it every day. Don't forget to put the date on it. "For the vision [promise] is a witness for the appointed time, a testimony to the end; it will not disappoint. If it delays, wait for it, it will surely come, it will not be late." (Cf Habakkuk 2: 2 - 3).

God is faithful to every single promise He makes. But every promise has its Day of Fulfillment. In the fullness of time, God makes everything beautiful. (Cf Ecclesiastes 3: 11).
