Hearing the Word i

Luke 2:33-35 (CEV)

33 Jesus’ parents were surprised at what Simeon had said. 34 Then he blessed them and told Mary, “This child of yours will cause many people in Israel to fall and others to stand. The child will be like a warning sign. Many people will reject him, 35 and you, Mary, will suffer as though you had been stabbed by a dagger. But all this will show what people are really thinking.”

This Child,
here is God.

This Child,
so much more than a child.

This Child,
here with a purpose,
God’s purpose.

This Child,
will make people think,
ask questions,
and ultimately
have to make a decision.

This Child,
are we with him,
for him?
Or against him
and all he will show us?

This Child
will show us truth,
God’s truth,
ultimate reality.
Some will not like it.
For some
it will be exactly what they
have been longing for.

This Child.
God’s Child.
here amongst us.
Bringing God’s word.

How will I respond?

Come and See
