The Gospel for this Sunday is so awesome. The disciples are asking, Jesus, “Are you the one who is to come, or should we look for another?” And I think we can live that way so often that we are not looking for Jesus, but we are looking for something else or someone else.
And I think the solution to this problem is Taylor Swift. Don’t judge, don’t hate. Yes, I like T-Swift, and her song “You Belong to Me” is really powerful because one of the lines in it is, “What you’ve been looking for has been here the whole time.” That’s what Jesus is saying to our hearts. Every time we are looking for something else, someone else, Jesus is saying, “What you’ve been looking for is here the whole time.” Every time that you look for pleasure to fulfill you, every time that you are grasping onto a relationship that might be unhealthy, whatever we are searching for, whatever we’re trying to fulfill us, it is only fulfilled in Jesus Christ. You belong to Him, not Taylor Swift. You belong to Jesus Christ. This is Spirit Juice. Peace.
Have a great night. Love you guys.
