Do not be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in me. John 14:1
After Jesus had finished washing the feet of his apostles at supper, he said, ” My children, I am with you for only a little while; you will look for me. ” For Jesus knew what was going to happen to him. He knew that after all this, he would be going to the Father. His leaving was for the good and love for us; in the Father’s house there are many rooms and he goes to prepare a place for us.
Jesus’ ascension to the Father, was not just an individual achievement, but opened for all of us a way to our House, not situated high above us but in God. There are many mansions, that means that there is also a place for us : not just one mansion for everybody, but a place for each one. God’s radiance will draw from each one the resonance only he can bring forth. Each of us will be in his own mansion, being in communion with all.
Now knowing the goal, we should walk towards this definitive communion with Jesus as the way. Although in the beginning, we may not understand his thought will, with time, we will discover the Lord and understand that his way is ours. Passing through the cross and death, we will achieve our own truth and arrive at life. We enter ” Into ” the mysterious life of the divine persons who share everything and who are the one and only God. Christ is in the Father and the Father in him establishing their dwelling within us.
Follow God, not people.
