409. Intense joy
Seeing God doesn’t necessarily mean seeing him with our eyes. We can see him with the eyes of the heart, in the good deeds of people, in us and in all that is realized of good, beautiful and true in the world. The pure heart is to become like a child, to shed oneself of what isn’t necessary, of what keeps us captive.
To see Jesus is to see Love and to see Love is to see the Trinity. Humanly, with our eyes we do not see Love. But the Love we receive from God is what motivates us during life. We all seek love when the Love of God is offered for free. As soon as we feel the true, pure, real love, we actually receive the Love that comes from God, which comes from Jesus.
Then, there was a multitude of people who had the privilege of knowing Jesus, who had the deep and intense joy of entering into a deep relationship with him. We may have had this chance to feel Jesus’s presence in our heart, to discover his person in our lives and to understand that he is the Master and Lord, then to grasp that his only judgment is his Love, that he Loves us with a total and definitive Love.
Paul gives us the purpose of faith. In Christ Jesus:
“You are no longer strangers and sojourners, but you are fellow citizens with the holy ones and members of the household of God.” Ephesians, chapter 2, verse 19
Do we believe it? In Jesus, we become saints, people of his family? Let’s share what we lived with the Trinity. It’s a good time to testify.
