Seeing Your Life through the Lens of the Gospels - John 14:1-12

Read 212 Times

John 14:1-12

"Do not let your hearts be troubled. Believe in God. Believe also in me." Trust in another person can help us in difficult times. Remember and give thanks for the people you were able to trust in difficult moments. Remember also when your faith in God helped you through anxious moments.

Thomas struggled with the desire, which is in all of us, to know exactly the destination before we set out. Jesus invites us to make an act of faith and to take one step at a time. Can you recall times when it helped you to take that trusting attitude to life?

Jesus proposed himself to Thomas as the way the truth and the life. In what ways - either by his teaching or by his example - has Jesus been he way, the truth and the life for you on your faith journey?

Philip wanted Jesus to give him a glimpse of God and get the surprising answer "Whoever has seen me has seen the Father". Jesus put a human face on the love of God. He gives us a glimpse of the divine. We are Jesus people in the world today, called to follow Jesus and to put a human face on the love of God for those who meet us. Who are the people whose love has helped you to believe in the love of God? To whom have you given an occasional glimpse of the divine?
