“But we, brethren, having been taken away from you for a short while – in person, not in spirit – were all the more eager with great desire to see your face” (1 Thessalonians 2:17).
The communion of saints is a very real thing. We are connected with other Christians in and through Christ. Living in this reality is a part of the life of a follower of Jesus. It does not matter if you do not “feel” it. It is what the Word says. Greater is He who is in us so that, in Him, we can do all things. He will bring to pass all that He has promised. Trust then in the Lord and walk always in His ways.
Lord, this world wants proof for everything. The truth is, You have revealed Yourself to me and unless You do so for the one who wants proof, they remain blind and unable to see. I do not know Your plans, so let me continue to shine the light You have given me. Guide me in the way of everlasting life that I may now and always be guided by You and not by those who do not believe.
Lord Jesus, author of my faith, guide me today to humbly acknowledge that You are present. Lead me to act despite how I feel so that I may do what is right and in accordance with the Word You have spoken. In all things, guide me according to Your never-changing Word in order that I may now and always lead the godly life to which You have called me through the grace You have given me. Amen.
