“God if you love me do something to prove it to me.” Chances are at some point in your life you’ve asked or even told God to give you a sign. In Sunday’s Gospel, the people demand from Jesus a sign because they are mad He was flipping over tables. Today’s #ShareJesus video takes a look at if we should ever ask God for a sign and points to God’s ultimate answer.
Here’s a great quote from Pope Francis from Evangelii Gaudium to consider for today:
Now is the time to say to Jesus: “Lord, I have let myself be deceived; in a thousand ways I have shunned your love, yet here I am once more, to renew my covenant with you. I need you. Save me once again, Lord, take me once more into your redeeming embrace”. How good it feels to come back to him whenever we are lost! Let me say this once more: God never tires of forgiving us; we are the ones who tire of seeking his mercy. Christ, who told us to forgive one another “seventy times seven” (Mt18:22) has given us his example: he has forgiven us seventy times seven. Time and time again he bears us on his shoulders. No one can strip us of the dignity bestowed upon us by this boundless and unfailing love. With a tenderness which never disappoints, but is always capable of restoring our joy, he makes it possible for us to lift up our heads and to start anew. Let us not flee from the resurrection of Jesus, let us never give up, come what will. May nothing inspire more than his life, which impels us onwards!”
