“Remain in Him” (1 John 2:27)
A simple instruction: remain in Him. It is about intimacy with God. And it is about our private internal dialogue. Whom have you invited to be a part of your daily internal conversation? Who is your first adviser to ask for comments for daily situations? Because if you don’t let Him into your own monolgue, and if you don’t let Him remain your chief interlocutor, your internal dialogue will remain the same and nothing will ever change. You know too well all these daily comments: he/she doesn’t understand me, I’m so lonely, everybody is using me, no one appreciates my work, etc.
But if you train your internal dialogue to take place in close proximity with Our Lord, you will receive the best comments possible. With Him your heart will grow, your eyes will be open to see good things in you, your life and all around, and your ears will hear the Good News – even if it’s hidden in the conflicting emotions. He will appear in the comments you offer to the others.
“In times past, God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets: in these last days, he has spoken to us through his Son” (Alleluia verse)
