Puer sum (Jer 1:7).

Before I formed you in the womb I knew you,
before you were born I dedicated you,
a prophet to the nations I appointed you.

How great is the vocation of the apostle? God loves him and chooses to proclaim the Good News to the nations. For that reason, the apostle needs to find out the will of God and ought to fulfill it in his life. It is not an easy task. The doubts can arise in the heart of the elect one. However, God never lets him be alone but always accompanies him with the divine grace. The apostle should trust and speak in the name of the Lord. There is no need for fear because God is with him to deliver from danger. The appointed person is touched by God and led by his mighty hand. The Holy Spirit lives and acts in his heart so that he could perform the miraculous deeds. With divine help he is able to build the kingdom of God among the people and cure their diseases. For the Lord is his strength and never lets him be put to shame. Moreover, Jesus Christ rescues and delivers him from evil. The disciple should only incline his ear to the words of God. In such a way, he will be saved and will help others to meet the Saviour.
