We Are Witnesses

"You are witnesses of these things." Luke 24:48
We were not there in the Upper Room. We did not see Jesus' wounds for ourselves. We were not with him on the way to Emmaus. We did not see the risen Lord eating a piece of fish to prove he was not a ghost.
But we too are called to be His witnesses. We too are called to witness to the truth that Jesus is risen.
We have seen the evidence.
We have seen Jesus in the breaking of the bread. We have seen Jesus on our altars and in our tabernacles. We have seen Jesus in our Church and in scripture.
And we have seen Jesus dwelling within our own hearts.
"You are witnesses of these things."
We have heard the call.

Dear Lord, with all that is going on in our world today, we know we are called to stand with you and to witness to the evidence of your resurrection. Give us the right words, Lord. So many need to hear our stories and to hear your voice. May we be your instruments, Lord. May we be your witnesses. Amen.
