John 6

Father, every bit of the person You’d have me to be, I long to be.

****************************************************************************

“Jesus took the loaves, gave thanks, and distributed to those who were seated as much as they wanted.  He did the same with the fish.” (v 11)

“… they saw Jesus approaching the boat, walking on the water …” (v 19)

Definitely the reactions of the people who witnessed these acts makes them vivid miracles.  However, when I look at You, Jesus, and I just take a snapshot of Your actions in these settings, they just seem natural to YOU.  Handing out bread and fish to hungry people seems like a common act to You.  Strolling on the water to rejoin Your friends seems like nothing to You.  Even as You were “in appearance as a man,” (Philippians 2) You were still God through and through — able to make little into much and to rule over the elements of Your creation.

How awesome You are, Father!  You are Almighty!  Most Holy God!  Faithful through the ages!  Sovereign Lord!  … And You care for me!  Thanks!  Thanks for the times in my life when You scoop up my mundane and season it with Your touch of wonder to make my life a reflection of You and something to bring You glory.  Here is my heart.  Continue with Your skillful surgery as You make me just like Jesus.

“I am the Bread of Life. The person who aligns with Me hungers no more and thirsts no more, ever.… I came down from heaven not to follow My own whim but to accomplish the will of the One who sent Me.

“This in a nutshell, is that will: that everything handed over to Me by the Father be completed — not a single detail missed — and at the wrap-up of time I have everything and everyone put together, upright and whole.  This is what My Father wants; that anyone who sees the Son and trusts who He is and what He does and then aligns with Him will enter REAL life, ETERNAL life.” (v 35-40 MSG)

Where else would I go, Lord? YOU have the words of life.  Keep nourishing me by them and make my life a reflection of Your own.  Amen.
