Gospel: John 14:7-14
You Still Do Not Know Me?
What does it take to know a person? I met couples in my recent trip who had been married between 30- 50 years and are still together! In contrast, a couple I know recently separated after 50 years! How can it be? Does time spent alone guarantee "forever?"
The same question can be asked in our love story with God. Jesus said to his disciple, “I have been with you for so long a time and you still do not know me, Phillip?" Really, what would it take to get to know someone and keep the relationship on fire?
Communicate, Committment, Fidelity to the word of God . Our daily dialogue with God allows us to hear his wisdom, feel his heart for his people and see his big dreams for us. Until one is willing to take this daily step, it will just be another “hello.”
