(St. John, Apostle and Evangelist)
St. John wrote, “what we have seen and heard we proclaim
now to you, so that you too may have fellowship with us;
for our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ.
We are writing this so that our joy may be complete.” 1 Jn 1:1-4
Ever watch a good movie, beloved?
Or see something that made you laugh or even cry?
Funny, when that happens, we can barely restrain ourselves from letting it out,
from shouting from the rooftops. It MUST be shared, so that others
can join in our fun or love or joy or even pain.
And thus it was for the disciples. They lived and ate and walked and
learned from Jesus himself. And then He was gone. And then He was back.
And then He was gone again. But then He, in the form of the Holy Spirit,
was back to stay, within their and our lives, within our hearts!
How could anyone hold that in, and not want to share it with
everyone they know and everyone they meet!
This story is SO INCREDIBLE,
we just want everyone to know the JOY and
the LIFE of Jesus – for it lasts eternally!
Thanks be to God for the Apostles and Evangelists!
Thanks be to God for Jesus Christ!
