Reflections for April 19, 2015

Luke 24:36b–48

God’s presence among us can sometimes go unnoticed or even completely ignored. The disciples in this week’s focus scripture are “startled and terrified” and think they’ve seen a ghost, not the risen Christ. He shows them his wounds and asks for fish to eat. He is no longer a ghost, but their resurrected teacher and friend! In our everyday lives we are called to embrace this risen Christ and share God’s love with our communities. As Christ was transformed in the eyes of the disciples from ghost to friend, how are we called to transformation in our own lives?

 

This week, at the end of each day, jot down the ways you’ve encountered God’s presence during the day. Say a quick prayer of thanksgiving for the many ways God reveals the hope and presence of the resurrected Christ to you in your daily life.
