Morning Meditation – More Than a Story

My friends change me. My wife’s presence gives meaning to my days. My children create a purpose in me that aids me in overcoming my self-centeredness. Because we all do life in relationship, we are transformed…hopefully for the better, right?!

This may sound simple, but there is a profound truth here when we relate it to Jesus. Look at what our Lord said to the man who was freed by a legion of demons: “Go home to your friends and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and how he has had mercy on you.” (Mark 5:19, ESV)

Encountering Jesus leads to a real moment of real transformation. He’s real! He’s not just a story to be believed, nor a philosophical truth to buy into. When you meet Him; you meet His goodness. You discover who you were truly meant to be because you’re walking with Him.

Let this testimony rise up in your heart: God is good! I am loved! And my life is in His hands!

Today, press into a fresh knowledge of His real-life mercies until you are changed. Celebrate what He has done for you. Know that He has prepared a way for you to possess life. As you walk with Him, make it real, and then you will find the transformation you’ve been looking for.

    If walking in relationship with those positive and loving people in our lives lifts us up, how much more are we lifted by a perfect loving Lord! His words are life, His tangible presence is out of this world! One just has to stop, slow down and turn their attention on Him and He is always right there!
