Sometimes, as Christians, we get too focused on when Jesus will come back, and we fail to realize and live in the fact that we have the Lord with us and in us right now. We are already living in grace!
The disciples were told to wait in Jerusalem until the promised Holy Spirit came upon them. They weren't told to wait until he came back. In last week's Gospel reading we heard the same promise of the Holy Spirit from Jesus.
The power and peace of the Holy Spirit is nothing to sneeze at. It is, as it were, a little bit of heave on earth. When we know by faith that we are saved from our sin and that our creator holds nothing against us because of his Son, we have that peace that goes above and beyond all understanding. When the Holy Spirit lives in us he gives us faith and guides us in the faith. He works through His means of grace to bring about faith and continually increase and sustain that faith!
What a blessing it is to know that we are already in the grace of God. What a joy it is to know the heavenly Father loves us so. What a peace it gives all of us to know that he is with us and in us every step of the way!
Prayer: Lord Jesus, we thank and praise you for sending your Holy Spirit into us so that we need not fear, but can rejoice in the love and forgiveness you give us. Keep us in the faith and increase our faith daily. Amen.
