I believe in a God I cannot see. Do you? Skeptics may say, as I certainly once did… “seeing is believing”. What I meant by that is that our five senses help us discern what is real. But many things are unseen and still very real and true. Our five senses are helpful, but inadequate in some ways when it comes to spiritual realities. No one has seen God (the Father) in His full glory. But, what God did for all humanity is appear. God, the Son, came into the world He created and people touched Him, heard Him, saw Him do miracles. Oh, the skeptic in you is saying “God, show me a miracle, and I will give You my life”! To that, God says “give me your life, and I will show you a miracle”. And I can attest He has done so in me. Will you believe in Jesus this Christmas?
No one has seen God at any time; if we love one another, God abides in us, and His love is perfected in us. By this we know that we abide in Him and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit. We have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son to be the Savior of the world. 1 John 4:12-14 NASB
What more does God have to do in my life for me to be fully devoted to Him? How has my faith grown in the last 42 years of following Jesus?
God, as this day begins- Christmas Eve,… Oh, I am so happy the family is all close by. You’ve been so gracious to us in a million ways. As we celebrate our Savior’s birth, may our hearts be pleasing to You. May any who lack faith, find reasons to believe and believe again. One day our faith will become sight. Sooner than any of us imagine. My heart is warmed with that thought. I am not so affectionate of this world or its ways. Day by day, I find myself more of a stranger in it. May love be what defines this day and my life. I ask again that You comfort each family who has lost precious loved ones, especially each grieving the untimely death of Austin and Bobby.
