Commentary on the Gospel of
The Word of God is both affective and effective. The gospel stirs our conscience and prods us to accomplish what it suggests. It means that we have to do something out of what we have received from Jesus. The lessons we learn from His teachings are not meant just to feed our minds with sober thoughts. Rather, they must be elevated to its true beauty in the exercise of good deeds. It is not enough to confess that we believe in the commandment “to love our enemies” on a purely cognitive way void of any solid action. True enough, the Word of God comforts us but also moves us to fruition.
