Indisputably the salvation of Christ exists. It requires only that I real-ize it, and bring it into the reality of each moment of every day, in all circumstances. As much as I choose good over evil and life over death, I real-ize the salvation of God. When I deliberately walk through the doorway of forgiveness, begging the Lord for healing in a relationship, I real-ize the mercy of God. Similarly as I follow Jesus through his ways of life, death and resurrection, my life real-izes the redemption of God as expressed through Christ Jesus. Holy Spirit, help me real-ize your salvation by my life.
With joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation. (Isaiah 12:3)
We invoke the help of the Holy Spirit, and then remain still in God’s presence, full of faith that he is more in us than we are in ourselves.
St. Jane Frances de Chantal
