“For from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace.” – John 1:16 ESV
We have all received grace upon grace.” The grace enabled the seeing. Grace is the supernatural power of God regenerating us and opening our blind eyes so that we can see Christ for who he really is. This is what we pray will happen for many during this holiday season. As they hear (or read) the story of Christ, may the grace of God open their eyes to see his self-authenticating glory, and become the children of God.
Today I pray that we aren’t so busy today that we miss out on your joy, on your peace, on your…faithfulness. We so often busy ourselves with the tasks of the day, running toward the goal, that we forget to enjoy the journey. And it is within the journey that you meet us, make us, mold us into better people…people capable of shining your light and love on others.
Today, God, may we honor you. May we share your love with those who are least deserving. May we make a difference in someone’s life. And may YOU receive all glory and honor. Amen!
