Christ’s presence in Christians

Christ is alive. Jesus is the Emmanuel:  God with us.  His resurrection shows us that God does not abandon his own.  He promised he would not:  “Can a woman forget her baby that is still unweaned, pity no longer the son she bore in her womb?  Even these may forget, yet I will not forget you.”  And he has kept his promise.  His delight is still to be with (his people).  Christ is alive in his Church.  “I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Counsellor will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you.”  That was what God planned:  Jesus, dying on the cross, gave us the Spirit of truth and life.  Christ stays in his Church, its sacraments, its liturgy, its preaching – in all that it does.
