John 14:6

Jesus said to him, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. 

Know and shine

The way is the path of passion, the passion of the Holy Love for us … and in us.

Jesus loves his own and loves them to the end, all the way to the ugliness of the executioner’s cross. In him, we see the Great Love we cannot see; we see and know this Love is for us. Always.

As we see, the Great Love awakens in us, stirring the fire of passion that moved Jesus to love his own to the very end.

We are born for this … to know this Love, for us and in us, filling and spilling, moving laughter and tears, awakening the holy desire to be given away in love and for love, following the way of Jesus.

Every morning we awaken in hope that somewhere, somehow, through something or someone, the fullness of Love will warm us within, lifting us above the mundane that we may know the truth God is and feel the divine life in us.

Feeling the Love Who Is, our hearts fill and pour out their fullness in generosity and blessing that we might shine with the beauty of Jesus.

The way of Jesus is the way of joy, the joy of knowing and becoming the Love who is ever beyond us yet near as the warmth of hearts who know, who truly know.

So know … and shine.

Pr. David L. Miller
