Homily for 29 Mar 2017

29 Mar 2017

There are lots of ways we get from Point A to Point B: we get in the car, we take a plane, we go by train, or on a bike, or we just use our feet and walk.  But if our destination is more spiritual—if our destination is life (life in abundance now and forever)—then there’s really just the one way to get there: the Son of God.

Jesus is our car or truck.  Jesus is our plane; he’s our train or bicycle.  Jesus is our feet.  If we’re trying to get from Point A to Point B—if we’re trying to go from life on earth to an even better life—then Jesus is how we get there.  Just as he and the Father are one, so we want to be one with Jesus.  And so, we hitch a ride with him . . . and he’s happy to give us a lift, to where we’re going.
