DAY SEVEN: NOVENA TO THE HOLY SPIRIT: Jesus prays for us
“Father, may they be one in us, as you are in me and I am in you”
Jesus had a unique relationship with His Father. This a relationship so deep that He could say to Philip that if you have seen me, you have seen the Father. The Father lived in him and he lived in the Father. They are unquestionably one. This is the kind of relationship that Jesus prays that we cultivate and have with the Father. This kind of relationship introduces to a world that only faith can show us. This kind of relationship makes us to live in the world but not be of the world. This kind of relationship makes us live in this world with the culture of our real home as revealed by Christ. And when we live this way that is inspired by the Holy Spirit, the world we know that we are one and of Him who died and lives forever more. And then our habits and attitude will be similar to the habits and attitudes of our heavenly home, because we do His will here as it is done there in heaven.
May the Spirit of Jesus live in us and give us the courage to have a deeper and a Christ-like relationship with God. Come O Holy Spirit Come!
