Confidence in God’s Love

Today’s Gospel from John is the same as the theme of this website.  Before his passion and death, Jesus teaches his apostles, “I am the vine and you are the branches.  Whoever remains in me and I in him will bear much fruit, because without me you can do nothing,” (John 15:5).  Jesus here speaks boldly and absolutely: without me you can do nothing. With this statement, he uncovers our human temptation to doubt him.  It can be easy, even as followers of Christ, to think that he cannot help us or that in some circumstances he chooses not to do so.  In these instances, we proceed on our own without placing ourselves confidently in his hands.

Jesus calls us to confidence.  He calls us to boldly believe in his goodness and his loving attention towards each of us.  God is so greatly aware of our needs, and he desires to care for us as a Father.  He delights in us and seeks our greatest good, yet we often pull away from him because we doubt the promises of his love.  Jesus reminds us that everything we have comes from him, and he desires to give us much more if we are willing to ask in confidence.  ”All that you ask for in prayer, believe that you will receive it and it shall be yours,” (Mark 11:24).  Let us grow in trust in him, joyfully embracing our identity as beloved sons and daughters of God!
