The Here and Now crowd
The Gospel of John Seven 25 thru 31
32 The Pharisees heard the crowd murmuring about him to this effect, and the chief priests and the Pharisees sent guards to arrest him. 33 So Jesus said, “I will be with you only a little while longer, and then I will go to the one who sent me. 34 You will look for me but not find [me], and where I am you cannot come.” 35 So the Jews said to one another, “Where is he going that we will not find him? Surely he is not going to the dispersion among the Greeks to teach the Greeks, is he? 36 What is the meaning of his saying, ‘You will look for me and not find [me], and where I am you cannot come’?”
The here and now of Jesus; What does it mean to you? Think of Jesus being here present amongst your friends, your family and your foes- Jesus doesn’t discriminate Jesus came for the sin of us all and then seeing Him present next to you like the disciples wanting to know how Eternal Life really works. But Jesus was here. This I am certain. Are you? He struck up conversations with every day ordinary people workers and lazy alike beckoning them to follow His miracle path by living love, faith and hope of grace and mercy. People around Him wanted Him dead much like what we all have around us people who hate the Lord’s grace because we offer the same mercy to each and every one. It’s when we learn to accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior that we find His courage to seek those who even by their own admission despise what God will always give them no matter the crime or injustice; mercy by His grace. Eye witnessed.
Where does this eyewitness testimony come from? It comes from you and me what they believed in the beginning and trust now that Jesus is a part of your life in every way. He’s there to adjust our abilities to manifest the love, faith and hope of living in Salvation where we are not afraid to seek those who need it most Jesus Jesus Jesus! Amen. Jesus would teach anyone anytime anywhere the same way he asked us to be open to understanding the path of Christ to find your home of eternal living in heaven. Jesus wants you to come to him under the open umbrella of grace and mercy. When we begin to recognize this truth I’ve been saved we find we are not unwilling to give Prayer a more serious thought of living Jesus here and now as he was the here and now of salvation 2000 years ago. You cannot come with me unless you admit your sins earnestly try to do better and help those around you to find this unbelievable and undeniable grace and mercy. It is a very narrow path for many are called yet few are chosen. Be not afraid Jesus is with us then as He is with us now Amen.
Join us in our daily prayer of forgiveness. I am sorry Lord. I believe You died and rose for me. Prayers for our son Gabriel and Allen Thomas Wiggins. Prayers for Dr. Cruz-Peluca. Silence for the prayers of others. CORO-19 prayers globally. Holy Spirit and St Joseph CC & Holy Mother Church. In Jesus Precious Blood by His Name we pray. Amen.

**The Here and Now crowd**
The Here and Now crowd
Murmuring heard aloud
Arresting guards sent
Laying hands prevent
Me sent by who?
One Jesus without two
Me find not due
Come not arresting you
Greek teach surely not
Dispersion meaning unknown spot
Look but not find Charity locked
Following Jesus He said you cannot
