Good News Inspiration for Daily Life
Bulletin Insert for May 19, 2019.
Description: In John 13:31-35 on the 5th Sunday of Easter, Jesus praises God (the Father) while equating himself with God. He even calls his friends “children” as if he himself is God the Father! In so doing, he makes it clear that he is one with the Father: so totally that the lines between Father and Savior are blurred. And he does it humbly, glorifying his Father. Glory is the radiating light of God’s presence: his love, his joy, his holiness, his peace, his wisdom, his creativity, and everything else that he imparts on those who want to bathe in his glory. When we glorify God, we are reflecting back to him this same glory.
Ideas for use: Bulletin insert for the 5th Sunday of Easter, ministry workshop, stewardship fair, adult education, faith sharing groups, RCIA class, etc.
