I need more of You. I rely on You, and You don’t let me down.
Sometimes it’s amazing to me how different You made us and allowed us to become. What have I in common with a shepherd who became a warrior king in ancient Israel? What connects me to the fear and faith of girl approached by an angel in a conquered country, who would bear the long promised Savior of the world?
Culture can blind us to how connected we really are – the day to day can steal it from us. The Savior was planned at the foundation of the world, and the promise of Him sustained generations. Now the truth of Him is our hope.
We drive our cars, work our jobs, run our dishwashers, shop for our clothes and entertain ourselves endlessly with marvels no other time could have envisioned. And it all just might blind us more than any other generation.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.” John 1:1-5
May we not see the light in the darkness and fail to comprehend it.
In Him is all life, and His life is the light for us all.
