Thought for the Day: Glory full of grace and truth – My theology, my understanding of God, has always been shaped by those words. And I need to remember sometimes that an occasional sermon preached is not always going to be remembered by the congregation, and there are always folks who might not have heard those sermons in the first place. The reason I say that is in regard to my recent references to truth, including in today’s sermon. When speaking of truth, it is for me another way of speaking of God. God is the marriage of truth and grace, for I do not picture God like a Zeus or any other physical manifestation, but as the very essence of truth and grace that is woven into the fabric of the universe. Our lives are a journey of discovery and maturing as we seek to align ourselves with God, what we as humans describe with the language of truth and grace. Jesus is the fullness of this grace and truth, and his life helps us to define those words and to model them. As I think about it, though maybe an over simplification, it begins for us with telling the truth in grace, and showing grace in hopes of revealing truth.
Prayer: Holy One of Truth and Grace, continue to draw me closer to you, the very essence that holds the universe together and provides us life and the fullness of life. Amen.
