When I was little I used to think that Christ was with me….but only when I’m doing something good….or only in holy or sacred places. Oh…how wrong I was! Jesus proclaims to the disciples that no matter what they “feel”….not matter where they go, he will be with them…and even more….the Holy Spirit will be given to them and find a resting place within them. We are the inheritors of this same promise. We are never alone, never abandoned! Our God is with us always…even when we can’t feel that presence or sense it…God is with us. Even in the midst of our worst moments, our most selfish actions…even in the midst of our greatest sin…God is present and loving us through that dark moment.
How do I respond to being loved so deeply and passionately by God? How do I share God’s love with others? When was the last time I heard the Holy Spirit calling me to something…or away from something? What was or will my response be?
