God’s Presence

Mark 4:26-34

Seeing God’s presence and action in this world is always a challenge. God is always mystery, always beyond our understanding, yet, seeing His living presence, the Holy Spirit is vital and foundational to our lives. Recognizing and working with His Grace is the disciple’s primary task.

In the Gospel, Jesus describes this mysterious presence as the seeded field that grows into a harvest, and we know not how. Or it is like the tiny mustard seed that somehow becomes big enough to become home for the birds. The message to us is trust that God is present, alive, and powerful. Can we see this with the eyes of faith and be confident in this presence?
