Sunday to Monday/ Mothering God

Being Happy Now

We all long for heaven where God is, but we have it in our power to be in heaven with Him at this very moment. But being happy with Him now means:
Loving as He loves,
Helping as He helps,
Giving as He gives,
Serving as He serves,
Rescuing as He rescues,
Being with Him twenty-four hours,
Touching Him in his distressing disguise.

-Mother Teresa

On Sunday, the title of Vikki’s sermon was “Getting in Touch with God’s Feminine Side,” with text from   John 15: 9-17.

Some questions to help you reflect on yesterday’s message…
1. What masculine and feminine qualities do you honor in your image of God?

2. What new insight into your relationship with God do you find when Jesus proclaims that you are his friend? (John 15:13-15)

3. Jesus says that love means laying one’s life down for another (John 15:13).  How has someone “laid down their life” for you?

4. In John 15:16, Jesus tells us that we are chosen to bear fruit.  How does being “chosen” help you to bear the fruits of God’s love to others?
