In our physical bodies, it takes a strong core to be steady, to find balance. The same is true in our spiritual life. When we focus on our center – when we focus on Jesus who IS our Center – our spirits are steadied and our lives are strong. Over the next several weeks we will be reading from Paul’s letter to the Ephesians and remembering together who we are as God's people, who we are at our core. Though physically apart, we worship together united by the Spirit of God alive in each believer.
Did Jesus really mean what he said? Does he expect us to really take the baton and run the race in his footsteps? If we are vessels through which God tells God's story of love, grace, reconciliation, and unity, how brightly is the light of Christ shining through our thoughts, our attitudes, our words and our actions?
