Sometimes we read scripture and wonder how much easier life would be if Jesus were right here with us, just as He was with His disciples long ago. But Jesus reminds us that it is better for us that He is not confined to the limits of an Earthly body. He prepares Heaven to receive us, while at the same time remaining with us in Spirit to prepare us for Heaven.
And we pray:
Jesus, sometimes I wish I could reach out and take Your hand, or even simply touch the hem of your cloak. Thank You for sending Your Comforter, The Holy Spirit, to remain with me, to work in me, and to guide my life as I walk in step with You each day. Please conform me more each day to Your likeness until this life’s journey is done and Your perfection is completed in me. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
