an interior sense

Dec 13, 2021

“Jesus had gone into the Temple and was teaching,
when the chief priests and the elders of the people
came to him and said,
‘What authority have you for acting like this?
And who gave you this authority?’”
Matthew 21

We are right to be suspicious of many who wield authority in our world. However true authority is necessary for happy and healthy human life.

This is why the teaching of Jesus was so attractive. “his teaching made a deep impression on them because, unlike the scribes, he taught them with authority.”

If you are not convinced of what I am saying, you might like to test this.

Decide now that this week you will live the life of the God fully. You will have a pretty good idea of what you know to be right and wrong, good and bad. You will know too what the Church offers as truth.  And, you will also have a pretty sound interior sense of what God is nudging you away from, and towards.

This week, take all of this on board as your ‘way of life’ one hundred percent.

Add to your decision a commitment to pray regularly, perhaps a few moments often during each day, and a couple of longer periods.

If you do this, I guarantee that after a day or two, you will notice a difference in your life that delights you.

You will feel more connected with God.

You will have a strong sense that you are growing beyond much of what has limited you earlier.

You will also have a sense that you are on a new and  ultimate adventure.

And, like the millions around the world who have lived this life across the centuries, and today, you will feel as though you are living anew.

If you don’t believe me, try it!

Thomas was not doubting as much as seeking; he was expressing the desire of one who truly yearns for adult faith.

Surely the real mortality in our sin is not any particular action or omission itself, but what we do after we realise our sin

I have no doubt that God used the stars to shift my focus from my own failures and successes to the God I was seeking to follow.
