Daily Devotion

8 November 

Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The words that I say to you I do not speak on my own authority, but the Father who dwells in me does his works. (John 14:10, ESV)

When God chose to reveal himself, he did so (surprise of surprises) through a human body. The tongue that called forth the dead was a human one. The hand that touched the leper had dirt under its nails. The feet upon which the woman wept were calloused and dirty. And his tears…oh, don’t miss the tears, they came from a heart as broken as yours or mine ever has been.

Prayer: Lord, you are the picture of humanity we are to be. Strength, discipline and patience are what I need.
