Have you ever heard of a God who did all this for us? What is the Good News simply explained? It is that we were once lost and now found. Once alone now loved and a member of God's family, filled with His riches; Faith, Hope, Love, the Holy Spirit and eternal life. This is the Good News and we can (and are asked by God) to share it with others. But how?
The Holy Spirit is always with us. It is the Power of God. It is the Promise of God. It realizes the Words Spoken when it is invoked. Let us ask for the Holy Spirit to Come Today, with It's Gifts, and let's follow It's inspirations everyday.
Today on the feast of the Ascension we also celebrated First Communions. The One Jesus of Nazareth Ascends to Heaven, to be with us in the Eucharist. Once only one person, he is now in more that 1 Billion! Let's bring Him to more.
Our God is a Lover. We are part of a Love story! All creations exists because of Love. God sent His Son because of Love. He wants us to live in that Love. Yet how can love be commanded, as Jesus commands? God creates it in us, by His Command, just as he commanded creation to come into being.
Disciples are called to produce fruit. But it is God who produces fruit through us. We remain attached to the vine, the Church. It is our relationship with Jesus that allows the Holy Spirit to dwell in us, doing the work of the Kingdom through us. How do we remain in Jesus? PSSSSS; prayer, sacraments, scripture, study, service and sharing our faith.
