Friday, February 26

Philip said to Jesus, “Lord, show us the Father, and we will be satisfied.” Jesus said to him, “Have I been with you all this time, Philip, and you still do not know me? Whoever has seen me has seen the Father.”
—John 14:8-9

As Christians we say that Jesus reveals God. Whenever we wonder, "What is God like?" our answer is, "Look at Jesus." Jesus shows us God's ways, in heaven and on earth. Jesus shows us the Father and gives us a peek at heaven.

He lived what he taught us to pray, "Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven."Do you want to know God's will ...what God's kingdom on earth and in heaven is like? Hang around Jesus and watch how he lives. That's the way God is. That's a foretaste of heaven.

What do we see when we watch Jesus? We see someone who is love incarnate. John says, "God is love." We see Jesus, and he is what love looks like in a human life. He gives his disciples the new commandment, "Love one another." 

That's what God wants us to do. Just love one another, he says, and God's joy will be in us. He shows us what that is like by loving us, even to the point of laying down his life for us. He lays down his life for his friends.

Let your Spirit fill my mind, emotions and intentions this day, O Jesus, that I may live as you have shown us and be the love that I have already received through you. Amen.
