Our need for signs from the Lord speaks of our very human desire to be reassured that God is near and paying attention to us—that God cares. It speaks of our need to be fed with the bread of hope, of compassion, of unconditional love. It speaks of our thirst for conscious contact with the Lord.
Does God care? A wise friend told me: “Of course. That’s why Jesus came here.”
So [the crowd] said to Jesus, “What sign can you do, that we may see and believe in you? What can you do? Our ancestors ate manna in the desert, as it is written: He gave them bread from heaven to eat.” John 6:30-31
Thank you, dear friend. I needed this insight today. XxOO
Me too. Thank goodness for the Good News and good friends.
“That is why Jesus came here.” What a thought I will keep with me for the rest of my life. God Bless, SR
You can hear the Spirit in that phrase, can’t you?
I can hear the spirit in every word you write! I can feel the spirit in every word you write! I can see the spirit in every word you write!
What I cannot figure out, is how you became the wonderful and spiritual person that you are? So grounded in everything. Like I said, “I would just love to have an afternoon on the front porch with you and a cup of tea! I think I could listen to you forever and never say a word! God Bless, SR
You are very encouraging, SR. “That’s why Jesus came here” is a quote, not my own words. But I did hear the Spirit in it. A cup of tea on the porch listening would be lovely.
