Today’s Gospel: John 14:21-26 (The Advocate)
We must keep one thing in mind, God loves each of us individually as if each one of us, was the only person that existed. That is why our relationship with Him is so real and so incredible once you really welcome Him to be in our life. St. Augustine says it this way, “The Lord loves each of us as if there were only one of us to love.” God made us out of love to love, so that we to would love. Obviously, everything comes from God, but it’s all through His love.
Pondering these thoughts today: It is by the power of the Holy Spirit that we are guided and led and directed to our Lord. Yes, Jesus calls us, but it is through the power of the Holy Spirit that we answer that call and by God’s grace that we understand and pursue the calling. It is way simpler than what I just said. I even laughed when I reread it, but figured I would pass on the chuckle to you. It may be a tongue twister, but to all who understand, it makes sense; to all who don’t understand, I pray that soon you to will understand through the power of the Holy Spirit.
Your brother in Christ Jesus
