A little while later you will see Me
Jesus said to His disciples “A little while longer you will no longer see me and again a little while later and you will see me”. Then some of his disciples are asking one another what Jesus meant on what he said. He knew what the disciples wanted to ask him, and asked them if they were discussing with one another about what he told them.
Jesus is inviting us to listen and dialogue with him and not to just listen and then discuss with one another. God can speak to us in a deeper manner that sometimes we cannot grasp the first time we read his word. We are invited to go deeper in our prayer with the word of God and to listen only to God. Ask the Holy Spirit for the gift of Wisdom as we go deeper in our prayer to understand his personal message for us. His word is so powerful that it can change the world.
Let us us live, preach and believe in his word. His word will reveal Jesus to us and we will see him in action through our lives.
