Transcript of audio:
In this week’s Gospel reading we hear two disciples ask Jesus where he is staying. Jesus replies by inviting them to "come and see."
Jesus wasn’t asking them to come check out his room at the local inn. He was inviting them to come listen to his Gospel message and recognize him as the Messiah.
Listening is essential to our faith and to finding peace in our lives. Jesus invites us to come and see…to imitate his life and discover meaning and purpose in our own. Our relationship with God begins with this invitation to listen.
Take some time this week to truly listen and hear what God is saying to you. Turn off the phone. Turn off the TV. Take a break from all of life’s distractions. Just listen. You may be surprised what you hear.
