The Gospel reading for the day after Ash Wednesday: John 1:29 - 34.

Public Lectio Divina for today:

The Holy Spirit came down and remained on Jesus. Remaining is an important concept in both the Gospel and the Epistles of John. Remaining here is an action of the Holy Spirit; later on it will become indicative of the relationship between Jesus and his disciples. "Remain in me, and I will remain in you." (John 15:4)

It seems that we can receive this verse as a promise of the presence of the Holy Spirit as we remain in Jesus and he in us. Being in fellowship with Jesus brings us into the presence of the Father; it also brings us into the presence of the Spirit. John knows that his mere water is not the be-all end-all; he looks forward to the one who will baptize in the Holy Spirit. And this, he says, is Jesus.

Holy Spirit, we welcome you and invite you to be with us. Immerse us in your presence. Guide us in the way of love. Give us the ability to remain in Christ. Amen.
