Twenty-Fifth Day of Easter

O God,

Twenty-five days after Easter Sunday the followers of Jesus were twenty-five days away from Pentecost; they were half way between the experience of new life through the resurrected Christ and the experience of the fulfillment of the promise of the Holy Spirit.

What are we living between? What does it mean for us to have experienced what we have experienced and yet to be awaiting what is still to come?

Are we aware of the new life we have in Christ? Are we living in light of that new life?

Are we looking forward to whatever else you have for us? Are we living in satisfaction or in anticipation?

Show us how we are we living in between, in the midst, in the middle.

Open our lives to what is; open our eyes to what will be.
