Gospel of John 14:7-14 Reflection:
"If you know me, you know my Father too," says Jesus to his disciples. He could not tell them any more plainly that he was equal to the Father and yet they still did not understand.
This is the problem we all have; creation roars with the name of God, our lives are constantly touched by our longing for something greater than and above us, our very soul cries out for a saviour and when we meet him we do not recognize him.
Why are we so stubborn, what is it in us that stops us seeing and experiencing Jesus as Lord?
There is the question of surrender to God's will. We want to hold on to our own desires and yet we want God: the struggle between these two pulls on our soul is the real struggle of the spiritual life.
Sometimes we do what is right and allow Jesus to be Lord, sometimes we don't.
At Easter we celebrate the resurrection. Jesus resurrects in us every time we accept his will and surrender wholeheartedly to whatever he sends to us.
Then we can bear witness to the resurrection of Jesus in our lives, because for us the resurrection becomes real.
