That sounds weird to say doesn’t it? That, “It’s better if Jesus isn’t here.” Its weird because as his disciples today, we tend to think, “Oh, if I could have just been with him when he was alive, it would have been easier” or “It must have been so great for those disciples to see Jesus…it must have made everything make so much more sense.” Read the gospels again. The disciples were just as confused and dis-oriented as we find ourselves much of the time. The fact is, the reason it’s “better” that Jesus isn’t here is because in bigger picture of God’s work to save the world, Jesus ascension would result in the advent of God’s Spirit. With God’s Spirit comes new possibilities for what God can accomplish both through us and in us. Listen in to hear more!
