Your Word, O LORD, is a forever Word, firmly fixed above us in the heavens, unmovable, unchanging, existing in permanent relevance. Your reliability is reality. And this world stands today; only because you rule. Ultimately, all things serve your will. In love, you call us to yourself, away from the ruin and destinies of pain in this world.
To any who believe, love, and trust you, Jesus, you have entrusted your good news of love and rescue to share, an exquisite, invaluable treasure offered to others in a vessel as weak as ourselves. Wow! You designed for your glorious love to be shared through us! It is like putting an one-0f-a-kind, priceless treasure in a disposable, red plastic cup, easily broken or tossed away. You allowed it to be this way on purpose, so that every one will know that the power came from you and never from us. So each new day, as we look to you, Jesus, a part of our old self dies; so that, your life in us, Jesus, is seen more and more by others. And as we fix our eyes on you, our Morning Star, we are being transformed into Your image, from one degree of glory to another. So, by your grace, every-day-dying is at work in us, so that your life, Jesus, is reflected, your Light in us. We are made to be in oneness with the Beauty we see.
“We are to shine as the sun, we are to be given the Morning Star.” ~ C. S. Lewis
