“I am with you”. Today’s Gospel is often referred to as the ‘Great Commission’. It contains the instructions of the Risen Jesus to the disciples to spread the Good News to the ends of the earth, to teach and to baptise ‘in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit’. As we celebrate Trinity Sunday today, we pay attention in particular to the very last words of Matthew’s Gospel: ‘And know that I am with you always; yes, to the end of time.’ Jesus will be with his followers through the gift of the Holy Spirit, God’s presence with us. We read that some of the disciples were hesitant when they encountered Jesus on the mountain. They had lost him to death, and now he was risen and with them again in the flesh. They may have felt they weren’t ready or able for the task he was handing over to them. These first disciples were an imperfect group of people, yet Jesus chose them to spread God’s vision of love, compassion and justice throughout the world. Perhaps, like some of the disciples, we are fearful or doubtful. At a time when everything is changing so rapidly, it can be difficult to navigate our own faith journey, never mind communicate it to others. Yet we have Jesus’ assurance that he is with us, with the love and strength we need. The Holy Spirit is at work, inspiring and guiding us, shaping our lives, helping us to make the love of God present to all we meet. ‘Love is the greatest force in the universe. It is the heartbeat of the moral cosmos. He who loves is a participant in the being of God.’
Martin Luther King Jr.
