Gospel Reflection for May 5, 2013, 6th Sunday of Easter

29 Apr

Jesus said, “Those who love me will keep my word, and my Father will love them.  To them we will come and make our home with them.”

John 14:23

This gospel tells us that when people live like Jesus, they discover the Father within them.  We learn and relearn Jesus’ message from living it.  Jesus comes as a friend, an equal who does not exempt himself from the conditions of human life but lives them to the end, facing death on the cross at the hands of empire.

What do you appreciate about Christians understanding themselves as friends of God?
