Tuck in to a grand passage, like Paul’s prayer in Ephesians 3. This cosmic-in-scope, incredibly moving, outrageously anointed piece of prophetic poetry.
Then bear in mind it was written by a battered bloke with circumstances including imprisonment, disappointment, persecution and ethnic division.
Right up until he ushers in the new age, Jesus is going to be about his wonder working and restorative reign right in the midst of broken and pained lives, because that’s the only ones there are. He’s going to feature heavily in the frightened and the failures because that’s the only ones there are.
This rainy Monday in October, in the midst of your mundane, your manic, your miserable, and your muck ups, expect to see and hear Jesus at work. He really is alive, and he really loves to touch his people, bang in the middle of our ordinary lives.
