God’s Son manifests his dwelling in those who choose to respond to his love. We are invited to have a relationship. Earlier we were taught ‘about’ the Lord Jesus. We knew about him and what he did and taught. Now however we have come to not only know ‘about’ him but to ‘know’ him. Did we not when falling in love with our intended spouse, want to know that person intimately? And, in so doing would do almost anything that the person wanted, to win that person’s approval and love? In that love, life was full of great expectations. Joy overflowed. How much more would that great expectation be when falling in love with the Author of love and the Creator of eternal life. We could talk to him and listen to that gentle voice. He tells us to not live based on the values of the world, the addiction to what flesh yearns for in the pursuit of pleasure. But rather his Kingdom values revealed in the Scriptures. We should live for a higher purpose. We have the power to mend the brokenness of humanity. Surely the Lord is in our midst.
Prayer: Abba Father, as your child may I do great things with you to mend the brokenness of humanity and the sinfulness of the world. Amen.
