Acts 28:16-20, 30-31
Psalm 11:4, 5 and 7
A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:
Today we bring a long journey to an end, a journey that began on Ash Wednesday, through Lent, the Lord's passion and resurrection and the wonderful Easter season. This has been a time of reflection, renewal, death and rebirth as the Lord's promises to us are fulfilled once again. For the past weeks of Easter we have heard the story of the newly formed church and the gospel of John that is so rich in teaching and spiritual guidance for all of us.
John ends his gospel saying, "There are also many other things that Jesus did, but if these were to be described individually, I do not think the whole world would contain the books that would be written." This is a perfect ending to John's gospel and a perfect ending to our Easter season as we realize that Christ's works are so great, so unbounded and so universal, that the world cannot possibly contain it all. And we are part of that work: we, like millions before us, have received His great gifts and have experienced his perfect love.
