power... Believe? Testimony?
"I will put my Spirit in you and you will live, and I will settle you in your own land." Ezekiel 37:14
How are you at telling stories? How are you at listening to stories? Where are you when you think of stories? Have you ever sat around a campfire and told stories or heard stories? Did they include "ghost" stories? Did you believe an of the stories - even the ones you told? My family, going clear back to the clan in Scotland, are story tellers. We share the stories, and the history, we know.
The readings, today, are about people hearing, seeing and knowing the Spirit of God in us. Ezekiel is reminding the people, for all time, how God has given us His Spirit. (37:14) Romans is reminding us others will see and know the "Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you." (8:11) The Gospel reading is Jesus reminding all of us how God's Spirit guides us even when we answer like Mary and Martha.
The question is...do we believe? Are we telling the story of when, where, and how we have seen God? Can we share our testimonies of God's love and strength? Something to think about......
