“A Macedonian stood before him and implored him with these words, ‘Come over to Macedonia and help us.’ When he had seen the vision, we sought passage to Macedonia at once, concluding that God had called us to proclaim the Good News to them.” (Acts 16: 9-10)
Expanding our imagination. The world seen from our perspective could be so small: my neighborhood, my city, my family, my friends. And everything is safe because I call it “mine.” God’s perspective is wider: He sees people in need, where we can’t see them. Who of us, a few years ago or even a year ago had any idea where we will be this May? Our life, our daily routine is important; it gives us security, makes the world predictable. God’s world is bigger, full of challenges and …unpredictable. Following God’s will means listening carefully, double checking if it is really His will, expecting unexpected changes, being on the move, travelling “from city to city” – and following Him.
“If then you were raised with Christ, seek what is above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God” (Alleluia versus).
