Advent Reflection

star

As we come to the end of the Advent Season, take some time to remember the great reality that God has come “in the flesh.” This means that “everything in spiritual” – there is nothing that has not been touched by the divine. Jesus Christ (God the Son) took on human flesh and experienced everything that we do – joy, disappointment, laughter, tears, energy, fatigue, elation, and pain. People often speak of that which is “secular” and that which is “sacred” but this is not a Biblical distinction. All is sacred, or spiritual. All things can be experienced in the context of a relationship with God. In fact, nothing can be experienced fully without being in the context of relationship with God. Our joys, our hopes, our tears, and our pain should all be experienced in a dependent way — looking to the Father each moment, enjoying what He is doing.

 

In 1 Corinthians 10:31, we are told that “whether we eat or drink or whatever we do, we do all things to the glory of God.” Things are done to the glory of God when they are done with our eyes on Him.

 

How do you drink something to the glory of God? How do you eat? How do you sleep or work or take a walk or drink a cappuccino or build a snowman or sing a song?

 

Ponder that with each activity and you’ll find joy in the journey!
