Philip said: “Show us the Father and that will be enough for us” (Jn 14). There is a deep spiritual hunger in the hearts of a great many people, even some who do not yet believe in God. “I want to see God” is implicit in their search.
The search for God begins within our own hearts, where the Holy Spirit of Jesus is already present. The Holy Spirit reveals the Lord to us and through Jesus, the Father. What God asks of us is openness to learning the truth and receiving the love of the Lord. We have a choice about opening ourselves to the work of God.
Our journey is a journey of faith. Each of us can ask: Do I believe that I am loved? Do I believe that Jesus loves this person to whom I am reaching out? Do I understand divine love for the human heart? It is more important to be a center of Jesus’ warmth and love in a cold and uncaring world than to achieve any other ambition.
I pray that I may be what you have called me to be, Lord, a person filled with your wisdom and love, a person who wants to lead others to see God in you. Increase my own faith and confidence.
