Lent 9 – Not Recognised

2014.03.18

“He was in the world, and though the world was made through him,
the world did not recognize him.”

(John 1:10)

Reflection:

Jesus came with the majestic power and authority of God revealed in Genesis 1. He spoke words of command and the storm was stilled, water became wine, bread multiplied, the sick were healed, the blind saw, the lame walked and the dead were brought to life.

 He came also with the love and intimacy of God revealed in Genesis 2 and onward as God dealt with His people. Jesus was personally involved with those around Him in gentle understanding and love. From little children to the sick and outcast sinners He ministered God’s accepting, forgiving and saving love.

 Sadly the world did not recognise Him for who He was. Increasingly it still does not and seeks to ignore Him. However, we can be sure of this – that a time will come when

“at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth”  (Philippians 2:10)

Response:

Keep steadfast in Your faith.

Prayer:

Lord God I do believe – help me in the weakness of my belief. Help me always to look and draw closer to You so that You can draw closer to me. Amen.
