I relish every time I get together with my spiritual father. He has mentored me all through ministry, beginning in college. When we sit over coffee these days it is some of the most precious time I could ever spend with someone else.
Today it was about the presence of Jesus. It was about Jesus giving himself, finding a way to always be with people in significant ways.
Years of ministry and we don’t talk about techniques or practices. We talk about the presence of Jesus and how to manifest that on a daily basis in the most basic ways.
Earlier this week at a funeral for another saint, the testimony was similar. When people were around this dear saint, the conversation was Jesus. There weren’t any other hobbies. No other interests. It was loving Jesus.
Lord, help my own conversation refresh others in the same way over time.
