The Apostles are the examples for us. Moreover, they support and intercede for us. They are holy ones while we are striving for holiness. They live in the community of saints in the kingdom of God while we are still on the journey. They were taught by Jesus himself and we also need his teaching. Jesus Christ was the centre of their lives and we need to keep him in our hearts too. Without Jesus they would have been the ordinary people, but with his Spirit they became the models and heres.
Similarly we are to follow them with the divine grace. We can become like them - the sacred temples where the Holy Spirit abides. Every day we are invited to live in the closer relation with Jesus. Our souls should change into the dwelling place of God's Spirit.
In this way in the 21st century we testify as the disciple of Jesus to the whole world and tell the Good News. The modern world needs such Christians who praise the Lord and glorify him among people. Since everyone is called to be holy and faithful according to the image of the Son of God.
