Encountering the Realities
…the hour is coming and is now here… John 5:19-29 I recently had a unique gospel experience in the midst of a sermon. The good thing is that I was certain God had given me the words. The scary thing is that in that moment, God was allowing me to live out the words! God allowed me to encounter the reality of woman who was crying out in the world saying “Lord Help Me!” She was not looking at the sky. She was looking at me! If we cover our eyes and ears to the world we cover our eyes and ears to what God wants us to see and hear, and the gifts he gives us to serve one another, won’t mean a thing. The hour is coming and is now hear. We must not forget that every new day God gifts to us is an opportunity to look (see), to listen (hear), to love (act).
