Feast of Saint James, Apostle

Since, then, we have the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, I believed, therefore I spoke, we too believe and therefore speak, knowing that the one who raised the Lord Jesus will raise us also with Jesus and place us with you in his presence. Everything indeed is for you, so that the grace bestowed in abundance on more and more people may cause the thanksgiving to overflow for the glory of God.

As Christians, we all have the same Holy Spirit dwelling within us. We all have the full potential to become saints rather than sinners. We all have the same mission to proclaim the gospel and the same responsibilities to know, love, and serve God and His children. We also share in the same promise of one day meeting God face-to-face and entering into His Presence for all eternity. This is what it means to be part of the New Covenant and we should do everything in our power to ensure we do not take for granted the gift of the Holy Spirit and all God has given us through Him.

Are we speaking out about our faith? What are we doing to keep ourselves good and pure so we are worthy of remaining in God’s Presence for all eternity? How can we multiply God’s Grace in the world?

O Lord, fill us with your Holy Spirit.
