This word about him spread throughout Judea and all the surrounding country. (Luke 7:17)

It is not Jesus’ sermons that cause word about him to spread far and wide (although his sermons are an important part of his ministry). It is not Jesus’ teachings that garner him support (although his teachings are an integral part of his mission). Today, we are reminded that it is Jesus’ actions that gain him a following; that is, what Jesus does meets people in their need – he heals those who are sick, he exorcises those with demons, he makes miracles to create peace in people’s lives, he makes alive those who have died. While we may not have such miracle-making powers, we do have the power to make an impact in the lives of those around us – just like Jesus – if only we would take the opportunity to act. – rc
