Sixth Sunday of Easter
 
Message:  The Great Mystery of Faith...Direction
 
 
Focus Scriptures: 
Acts 16:9-15     John 5:1-9
 
Luke records in Acts that Paul wants to go to Asia but the Holy Spirit reroutes him to Macedonia. No apparent explanation is given. Perhaps it is the desire of God for Paul to go to Macedonia. It is the choice of God to send laborers into whatever part of the harvest he pleases. Perhaps the hearts of those in Macedonia are most prepared to receive the gospel. Paul, nevertheless, obeys and goes to do God's will in Macedonia. John records that Jesus meets a man who has an infirmity for thirty eight years. By asking the man if he wanted to get well, Jesus causes in him faith, hope, and the desire to be healed. Jesus who has authority over illnesses gives the lame man direction to, "take up your bed and walk" and the man is healed. God through the Holy Spirit is also giving us direction in our lives, but we need, with faith, to discern what direction God wants us to go.

In the movie “Blue Brothers,” two misfit brothers find themselves on a self-proclaimed mission from God. Through many pitfalls and detours, they are able to accomplish the task set before them. But this mission from God came about as a result of a vision, though much like the vision that Paul received in Acts 16:9-15, it wasn’t quite so clear cut. It is easy to think that perhaps a vision from God would offer a clear-cut journey and final destination, but as Paul learned, there is context and interpretation the one taking the journey must subject himself to when finding the will of God. Because like Paul, each of us must find the path that God sets before us. We must find where the Holy Spirit is trying to guide us toward with the understanding that while the vision we see is right in front of us, and we fervently follow that call to action, the final result may not be something that we are meant to see right away. Rather, we are left to trust that God’s final desired outcome will be revealed to us at the proper time and place.
