“The Word became flesh and dwelt among us,” John tells us, revealing the heart of the Father. The glory of God, full of grace and truth, was and is made known in and through the incarnation of Jesus Christ. What does this mean for you and I today? What does it mean to receive this profound mystery into our own lives, becoming children of God, and continuing to reveal the glory of God through Emmanuel?

Every one of us needs to be transformed. God initiates the human search for change through love.

Most of us know we need to change at some level and to some degree. Sometimes we struggle to put it into words. Sometimes we refuse to consider it or admit it, nonetheless, it is true for all of us. 

Jesus’ first miracle was the transformation of one thing into another. Jesus changed water into wine at a wedding, revealing God’s glory.

Perhaps Jesus chose to do this at a wedding because God transforms people through marriage. We especially see the need for change through our closest relationships because love nudges people to be lovable. People in a relationship are challenged to be a better friend, or spouse, or parent.

One of Jesus’ friends put it this way, “We love him because he first loved us.”

How does God seek to transform you?

Yet I Will Rejoice in the Lord

Scriptures: Habakkuk 1 – 3

Songs:

Joel Russell-MacLean

We are all waiting for God to come and act: the couple looking into an empty crib which was meant for a child; the farmer looking at a dry empty field where seed had been sown; the grocer with empty shelves. Habakkuk wrote about the waiting, the injustice, and the suffering.

Habakkuk called out in prayer, “How long O Lord? Don’t you see what is going on?”

He had a vision. A vision of God coming down in such a dramatic way that it changed everything. It gave Habakkuk the strength to wait – and more to thank and praise God:

“Yet I will rejoice in the Lord; I will exult in the God of my salvation. God, the Lord, is my strength”

This is the Sunday before Advent, the time we reflect upon and celebrate the coming of Jesus, our hope, our peace, our light, the one who loves, forgives, and heals us.

For now, and for much of our life, we must wait, sometimes through the hardest times.
