    The Spirit of Jesus: Peacemaker

    The Spirit of Jesus: Peacemaker

    Do you believe in the possibility of perfect peace? The tried and trodden paths to peace are laws of conduct, or establishing buffers between hostile parties. Conflict might be subdued by these attempts, but peace is not established. The peacemakers, are called the children of God.

    The Spirit of Jesus: Purity

    The Spirit of Jesus: Purity

    To see a thing, is to recognise and comprehend that which already *is* (exists). It is only the PURE IN HEART who see God - the God who was and IS and is to come. This purity of heart cannot be achieved...BUT, it can be received: "I have come to open the eyes of the blind."

    The Spirit of Jesus: Merciful

    The Spirit of Jesus: Merciful

    God is mercy; He is merciful to all. So, blessed are those who are merciful, for God is dwelling in them. When we unmercifully stand apart from anyone, we are (perhaps inadvertently) standing apart from God. "God takes the part of humanity against the man. The man must treat men as he would have God treat Him."

    The Spirit of Jesus: Hungry for Righteousness

    The Spirit of Jesus: Hungry for Righteousness

    Hunger compels us to go and find food - we go to the fridge of the cupboard or the shops. But Jesus speaks here of something that we are to hunger for, that by very definition, cannot be taken by ourselves: righteousness.
    The frustration of not being able to take, shouldn't lead us to stop hungering - but rather to believe in Christ (John 6:29).

    The Spirit of Jesus: Meek

    The Spirit of Jesus: Meek

    The Sermon on the Mount is probably Jesus' premier teaching on His Person - Who He is. We come this week to the third beatitude: "Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth." Inheritance, by very nature, implies receiving: two parties. When we try to take the earth, rather than receive it as a token of communion between us and God, we are unable to possess it. So truly, blessed are those Who have the Spirit of Jesus, who never took the earth as His own, but received it from His Father.

    Jesus in John's Gospel: John 21

    Jesus in John's Gospel: John 21

    As we finish our reflections on John's gospel, we find Jesus reinstating Peter. Imagine the despair and shame which Peter would have felt after denying even knowing the one whom he loved. And yet, as Jesus replicates the miracle He did when first calling Peter, the disciple's response is completely different to the first time...no longer does He cower, aware of His sinfulness before the Holy Christ, rather He jumps from the boat - not letting anything hinder him from getting to Christ.
