Faith in Christ is always a miracle.
Faith is a gift, pure and simple, from the heart of God to us. We didn’t choose Christ; Christ chose us!
John says so eloquently, Not that we have loved God, but that God has loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.
Only because God has acted favorably on our behalf, only because God has looked upon us with mercy, has the light of Christ dawned upon our souls, to push away the dark night of sin and fear.
This is a miracle.
Within ourselves, a sea of darkness.
In God, the light, the true light that gives light to everyone.
As the Psalmist says so beautifully, In your light we see light.
It is said of Mary, she treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.
Oh Holy Spirit, Light Divine,
Open my heart and pour in the treasures of Christ.
Help me, I pray,
To slow down today.
To ponder the glory of Christ.
In the deep places of my heart!
