Independence Day

John 14:23-29

C.S. Lewis, the popular British writer, said that when he gets to heaven and stands in the visible presence of God, he does not expect a strange face to whom he would say, “Who are you?”  Instead, he anticipates a familiar face and thinks that his response might be, “So it was YOU all the time,” recognizing the presence of God in one another. To be a person of faith does not simply mean believing in God as creator of the universe but also experiencing him as a living presence in one another who walks with us along all the roads of life.
