You're About to Come Alive
“I will not leave you orphaned. I’m coming back. In just a little while the world will no longer see me, but you’re going to see me because I am alive and you’re about to come alive. At that moment you will know absolutely that I’m in my Father, and you’re in me, and I’m in you... The Friend, the Holy Spirit whom the Father will send at my request, will make everything plain to you. He will remind you of all the things I have told you." - Jesus, in John 14: 18-20, 25
Through the Spirit, Jesus says, we'll know deep down in our bones that he's in his Father, and we're in him, and he's in us... We're not just observers of the Divine Dance, we're meant to dive in, to link hands with our amazing three-in-one God and kick up our heels and move! God is inviting us to come alive in a whole new way.
Here's one last image of the Trinity for us to wonder over this week, an image of God's threeness seated at a table to feast and enjoy each other, with a spot left open, waiting just for you. Take a few moments to close your eyes and imagine this scene, its sounds, scents and textures. Now ask yourself where you are in picture - at the table, some distance away, eating, serving... What invitation does Jesus have for you in this moment?
