About Today Readings

Acts 18:23-28. Psalm 46(47):2-3, 8-10. John 16:23-28.
God is king of all the earth – Psalm 46(47):2-3, 8-10.
‘The Father himself loves you.’

Jesus came from the Father with good news. When Jesus speaks of coming and going he does not mean moving from one place to another. He is talking about being present to us in a different way. In dying a human death, Jesus experiences the limits of human life. He enters the fabric of creation, where God dwells. Here is the heart of the Easter message.

By the grace of God in Jesus, creation is reinvested with its holiness. Ordinary and common things are shown to be holy things – bread and wine, water and earth, marriage and parenthood, career and vocation. Our living and our dying is good and holy, and the world in which we live and die and rise is the world in which God lives and dies and rises. Lord, for this we give thanks.
