Mid Week Devotional

Dietrich Bonhoeffer, in his first chapter of Life Together, shares how Christians never meet one-on-one; he reminds us that we always meet in the presence of Jesus. Recognizing this will help us escape the traps of the devil and the dreadful habits that human beings engage in like gossip and sizing each other up spiritually and self absorbed piety.

This was a problem in the Chaplains corp. I even engaged in it from time to time with other chaplains and I am ashamed of myself. Criticism and thinking we are better than others, for our opinions and personal ideas; is wrong and only wounds us from the inside out. Does this identify anything that you have experienced or participated in? Have you felt the eyes upon you as you have tried so hard to speak or share personally and found that others just didn’t get you? Then, they express thoughts and feelings that only shoot you down? I know that must have been hard to hear and may still open wounds that should be healed. People can be cruel and thoughtless. Jesus knows how you feel and sits with you in your hurt. Know that only the love of Christ and the Holy Spirit can bring us beyond those hurts and allowing yourself to embrace those who don’t embrace you shows the love that Jesus calls us to share.

Through Christ we will meet that person, a stranger, a new member of the community, or maybe someone we have sat next to in church for years but never asked poignant questions that build a relationship. Believe in this, when Jesus is with us, that initial meeting is a blessing from God, no matter who it may be, no matter where they are from, no matter any and all differences in the person or you, in that moment Jesus is introducing you to a child of God. Don’t hinder the Spirit from working a miracle. Remember, we are always in a face to face relationship with Jesus and he just introduced you to someone new, whom you are called to love.

I met Kevin this week and was offered two chances to see and experience Christ in his life…It was awesome. I can’t wait to see him again. I hope you all are presented such opportunities with everyone you meet. Blessings in Christ our Lord. <><
