July 28, 2013 – “He appointed twelve whom he also named Apostles”
// July 28th, 2013 // Life is Christ
Mountain was a symbol of prayer and of God’s presence. When Jesus Christ scaled the mountain to elect his twelve Apostles, he made such election a prayer event. We saw this pattern repeated in the early Church as they elected other Apostles and deacons. This manner of elections seems to be lost in modern election rigging, cronyism, and nepotism. Hence, public office is fraught with less God-gearing service people. What happens to the method of Christ and the Apostolic style?
