7th Sunday of Easter - C (June 2, 2019)

The Gift

Today’s Gospel is the end of John, Chapter 17.   Just the next verse of 18:1 has Jesus going to the garden where he will be betrayed and arrested.

So, these are the very last words of Jesus before his arrest.

And he prays to the Father, speaking of his disciples present and all “those who will believe in me through their words.”   

“Father, they are your gift to me.”

We are the gift from the Father to Jesus.

And Jesus is the gift from the Father to us.

I am the Father’s gift to Jesus.  Jesus is the Father’s gift to me.

Spend some time with that today and during this week.
