From the Carpenter's Bench:

Who can defeat the world? Only the person who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.
- John 5:5

Human leaders can inspire us with their example, but they can't fill us with their spirit. But Jesus is different. He can do for us what no human leader can. He can reach inside us and fill us with his spirit. But Jesus does not force himself upon us. If he is to fill us with his spirit, we must believe he is the Son of God and open ourselves to him. 

Think about the people in our lives that inspire us, who are they? A wife, husband, father, mother, teacher, coach, brother, sister, friend...hopefully we all have people in our lives that inspire us to be better people, but the inspiration has to come from within ourselves! Jesus can open our hearts and inspire us to be better if we are willing to open our hearts to him. We live in a cynical world being constantly bombarded by bad influences, but it takes no money, fame, or popularity to be inspired in your heart and inspire others. 

How firmly am I trying to open myself to Jesus? How ready am I to let Jesus work miracles inside me? 

"A branch cannot bear fruit by itself; it can do so only if it remains in the vine. In the same can do nothing without me." - John 15:4-5

Let us remember we are in the holy presence of God
Saint Joseph our guide and guardian
Live Jesus in our hearts
