Sunday May 14th: I am in You

“On that day you will know that I am in my Father and you in me and I in you.”

John 14:15-21

I cudda swear that we were included in the godhead; that we were elevated to the third person of the blessed Trinity. This occurred to me after re-reading John 14:20 ‘On that day you will realize that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you.’

This makes us full and belonging and part of that holy of holies. It’s just a feeling I got from reflecting on verse 20. St. John must have had that feeling too. The text conveys that feeling.

But the good fathers of the church would have thought better and agree that Jesus really is sending another advocate to be the third person in the Trinity who would look after us.

We are little less than a god. Yes, we are created by God who needs us; just as we need God.

I prefer a good Trinity with us in the mix trying to be better; rather that a perfect Trinity that is fixed, with us on the outside.
