Poetic Truth

Poetry can be beautiful and it can express truth in ways that prose can’t, but it can also be cryptic! The prologue of the Gospel of John is much like poetry, it is beautiful, and it can be hard to understand at first, but it contains some important truth about who God is and who we are, along with a surprise that is almost too good to be true (but it is true!).

The Light Shining in the Darkness

We depend on light for so many things. It helps us see what we are doing, and the sun is important for our emotional health. Darkness, on the other hand, is often associated with evil. It is not surprising, then, that God uses the image of light shining in the darkness to talk about the coming incarnation of his Son, Jesus Christ.

Humbly Glorify the Lord

Shortly after receiving the news that she would be the bearer of the Son of God, the Virgin Mary goes to visit her relative Elizabeth. Elizabeth, who had long been unable to have a child and was now pregnant, could easily have been jealous of Mary. Mary could have slipped into pride over the role she was to play. These are now, however, the paths that they choose. Instead they are each content and joyful, humbly glorifying the Lord.

Freedom for the Captives

What is it like to be released from captivity? This was something that the people of God experienced on a number of occasions in the Old Testament. Psalm 126 reminds us of the ways God has brought freedom in the past, and it gives the encouragement that the God who has always acted in the past will continue to act in the future. Are you experiencing captivity, in some form, right now? This Psalm will bring you hope.

Canoeing the Mountains

When Lewis and Clark set out on their expedition, they traveled in canoes, looking for a water route for commerce as they explored the newly acquired territory from the Louisiana purchase. Everything about their expedition changed when they reached the Rocky Mountains! In our own day, the Church has been coasting along, doing business as usual, but the culture has changed around us. The new cultural climate is a very different context for our mission, and we may need to change some of our methods, just like Lewis and Clark changed their methods when their canoes were no longer useful. There are some things, however, which will never change. The Gospel and the Word of God remain a firm foundation, and we can trust that God will always be with us as we navigate this new, unfamiliar terrain.

Put the Car in Drive

Your car probably has a lever that you pull to change from park to drive or reverse. If you want to get to a particular destination, you have to move that lever into the “drive” position, otherwise you will just remain where you are. In the Letter to the Hebrews, the author is encouraging a group of believers to grow up in their faith, moving beyond where they are to where God is calling them to be. As Christians, we must never remain stagnant, rather we should always be moving towards the Lord and his plans for us. To do so, we can’t remain in park, we need to put the car in drive.
