Ephesians 1:20-21

God put this power to work in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places, far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and above every name that is named, not only in this age but also in the age to come.

The light of Christ

The light of God explodes from eternity through the lens of the risen Christ. He shines from the beginning to the out-most corners of the cosmos.

Christ’s light illumines the hearts and lives of every human soul in every place whether his name is known or not. He is the light of God’s own heart who works in all and through all and for all. He may be unknown or rejected in many places, but there is no place where he is not.

The heart of God is love and joy, compassion and wonder, blessing and grace, all that shines in our brother, Jesus, shining on us and in us amid the world’s brokenness and our imperfections.

Wherever grace and compassion touch human flesh, wherever wonder and love, trust and hope, kindness and joy appear he is there, illumining human hearts and drawing them into unity with himself. The light of Christ seeks to permeate all creation and the depth of every human soul until there is nothing that does not shine with the light he is.

His desire is for you to become as he is, sharing total unity with the Loving Mystery who is God that you may know the joy and holy purpose for which God created you.

Our yearning to know and be filled with an infinite love is but a mirror of his hunger for us.


Illumine the dark sadness of every human heart that we shine with the love who doesn’t let go. Amen.

Pr. David L. Miller
