You Have Made Your Home Inside of Me

                 Ephesians 3:14-21

I hope that each of you had an amazing and a safe Thanksgiving this year. This Sunday we make a transition from Thanksgiving to Advent with a new series called Light The Way!

I just drove home through the dark and the rain. As I pulled into the driveway our Christmas tree was welcoming me home with lights shining bright in the front window. This time of the year can be a bit of a rollercoaster as we face the darker winter months and we celebrate the holidays with warmth. As the days continue to grow shorter I find myself searching for light. 

During the day I search for sunshine and at night I love to look at the stars. There is something amazing about light and God's creation inspires us all to think beyond ourselves. This passage in Ephesians has a mystical side as Paul points to the universe and prays for us to grasp how wide, long, high and deep is the Love of Christ. Paul is contrasting here the immeasurable God of the universe with understanding that this God has made his home in our hearts! This God of the universe, a universe that can not be measured, is amazingly powerful and big. We can see his handiwork throughout the earth and as we understand more and more about the universe. 

From this perspective, we could feel that God is distant and that we are really small in comparison. Yet, this God desires to connect closely with creation, so closely that He sent his only Son. This is Advent, and this is truly a time of the year where Jesus lights the way. We see his touch all around us and this season we celebrate it with lights. Now, maybe more than ever, we are to be guided by the light, to share the light, and to light the way. I hope you will join us this Advent season as Jesus Lights the Way!
