S: So the Word became human and made his home among us. He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness. And we have seen his glory, the glory of the Father’s one and only Son. John 1:14 (NLT)
O: “He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness.” I imagine images of Jesus – unfailing in love and faithfulness in flesh –flooding his memory as John writes these words. Jesus, the only One faithful enough to give His life that we might experience unfailing love.
The only One willing to reach past our disease of sin and death – to touch the unclean – and restore life.
John saw the glory of Jesus walking on earth – inviting everyone to come and see.
A: I want to see that, too. I want to see our world transformed by the unfailing love and faithfulness of Jesus. This means I have to live out my faith – I must allow Your Spirit to be evident in my life – by dying to myself and letting Your Spirit lead. By allowing this to happen, I can give room for You to LOVE others through me. It is Your Spirit in me that invites them to know more about You – to experience You.
It is YOU I want them to see.
P: Jesus, thank You for Your incredible unfailing love and faithfulness. Thank You for Your written word that is sharper than any two-edged sword and helps me to know Your truth. Holy Spirit, thank You for guiding me, for leading me on the path of life You have set before me. Please keep my steps aligned with Yours as I move closer to my kingdom purpose, inviting others along the way to “Come and see.”
