Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen.
This ia a great time of year to pause and reflect on glories of our Risen Lord. When I contemplate one of God’s most unlikely creations in its weakness and vulnerability I am amazed that He would bother with something as trivial as that. Now of course you may think I am referring to this majestic Monarch butterfly, but I am not. I’m referring, rather, to you and I. If you really think about it as the supposed “crown of creation” we are a pretty pathetic lot. This is no false deprecation, but a good hard look at the weakest of all vessels which yet possess immeasurable strength through the possibilities built into you and I by our glorious creator God.
Yes, we’ve made a mess of this world and have spent way too much time and resource running each other down and also so many of the most vulnerable of God’s creatures. And yet God loves us so much that He decided in His immeasurable wisdom to give you and I a second chance. How? By the sacrifice of His one and only Son, Jesus.
Go outside and take a look around you. If you cannot see the love of God shining through all that He has made you might think to pray this simple prayer. “God, open my eyes that I may see…”
Open my eyes that I may see
Glimpses of truth Thou hast for me
Place in my hands the wonderful key
That shall unclasp and set me free
