God’s presence within us
  • Revelation 10:8-11
  • Psalm 119:
  • Luke 19:45-48

God lives among his chosen pePospallemfrom the beginning of creation. His presence was manifested in different ways in the Old Testament. Then his presence was seen in the Ark of the Covenant and subsequently in the Temple of Jerusalem. As Jesus entered into the temple, he felt embarrassment. Today Jesus is dwelling in our hearts, and his presence is seen in the Holy Eucharist. Is my heart pleasing to God? Is he happy to dwell within me? Or am I a bad host? Is my heart pleasing to my neighbors, colleagues, family members?

Am I pleased with the desires of my heart? If our hearts are not pleasing to God, let us pray as King David: “Have mercy on me, O God, according to your unfailing love; according to your great compassion blot out my transgressions. Wash away all my iniquity and cleanse me from my sin. For I know my transgressions, and my sin is always before me.” This should be our daily prayer. Are my deeds and words pleasing to God? Am I aware of God’s presence?

Prayer: Abba Father, become alive in my heart.Amen.
