Finding God in the Mysteries of every day

Week 22 Day 5

Finding God in the Mysteries of every day  /

Luke 2: saying: “Be on your guard against the yeast of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy. There is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed or hidden that will not be made known. What you have said in the dark will be heard in the daylight, and what you have whispered in the ear in the inner rooms will be proclaimed from the roofs.

            We live in an era where the mainstream of Christian thought seems to remain “safely” behind closed doors spoken only in clandestine settings away from the hearing of the world. Or, so it would seem to the casual observer. There is perhaps some sort of wrong- headed thinking abroad that Christianity has had its day and that now is the time to explore other world views and perhaps amalgamate them into the thinking and perception of how the world works.

            Jesus herein warns the disciples that all of their efforts to live a sub-rosa kind of faith will be unacceptable in reality. He attempts in this discourse to embolden them to the task for which they have been set apart. You will be my witnesses. (Acts 1:8) We have seen surely that we live in a time when it has become nearly impossible to lead any kind of life that is totally off the grid. The moment we begin to think that we can we are faced with the inevitability of discovery.

            So then, why not take the risk, why not declare your faith to the world, and perhaps even more frightening to those you love? Be ready with an explanation. Be willing to love even in the face of rejection.
