How Small We Are

The past few days have been kind of crazy so I haven’t read or written any blogs. Tomorrow will be another crazy day so this is my only opportunity to write. I write blogs five to seven times per week and I don’t want them to be about me. I may say something about me but I want it ultimately to be God who is the subject and predicate of every sentence.

In 2 Chronicles 6:18 it says “But will God indeed live on earth with men? Even heaven, the highest heaven, cannot contain You, much less this Temple I have built.” Solomon had finished his Temple for the Lord and he had seen God come down like a cloud. He then knew that God was not only bigger but holier than Solomon’s handiwork.

So what I have to offer each day is small and needy of filling. The only way for a filling is for me to ask and for God to bend down and say yes.

Mercy and Comfort

2 Corinthians 1:3 “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and the God of all comfort.” 2 Corinthians 1:4-5 goes on to say, and I paraphrase “If we’re hurt and we belong to Jesus then we’re comforted by Him as He sits by our side. But we’re comforted so we can go sit by someone else’s side and comfort their broken heart.” Words are sometimes out of place but our nearness is not nor is a listening ear.

My Grandmother passed away years ago and we had a funeral for her. That day I felt very sad and had a heavy heart. My sister-in-law came out of the funeral with tears in her eyes and that was such a comfort to me that my Grandma would mean that much to her. It made Grandma’s homegoing sweet to me instead of depressing and gloomy. So when you comfort someone don’t be afraid to shed a few tears.

Our heavenly Father is the God of mercy and comfort. The mercy in us and the comfort in us comes from Him. May He pour them out on us when we face our difficult moments and may He pour them through us when someone else faces theirs.

The Message

“They hurried off and found both Mary and Joseph, and the baby who was lying in the feeding trough. After seeing [them] they reported the message they were told about this child.” (LukeĀ  2:16, 17) The shepherds obeyed the message they were given. They went to find Mary, Joseph and the baby. But after seeing them they could have just rejoiced among each other. But somehow they knew this was a message that needed to be heard. They couldn’t spread just any message but it had to be the one they were told and it had to be about the child.

We each have a different message in our heart that has been given us by God. I can’t tell your message except very clumsily and you can’t tell my message except clumsily. Our eloquence only comes from telling the message we were called to tell.

And there is a structure to this message. It should always honor the child. It should be structured by God’s word. But especially it should be honoring to Jesus.

I love this. I have a calling. You have a calling. There is meaning to our lives because we have a message that we were meant to give away. We may not have the exciting beginning to our message as the shepherds did in the angels. But we have a calm assurance that the Baby lives in our hearts and because He does we have a meaningful piece of a puzzle to give.
