Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Jesus came to do God's work. He came as the Son of God, God incarnate in human flesh (John 1:14-18). He came to reveal God. Jesus came, and many people praised God. He came so people could see God. Do you know Jesus? If you do, do you know him as well as you should? As Luke reminded us in this event, when people saw Jesus at work in our world, they said: "God has come to help his people." Let's look for God at work in our world today and invite him to use us to manifest his presence!

My Prayer...

O Gracious Father and Eternal God, thank you for revealing yourself, your love, your grace, and your salvation to us in Jesus. We thank you for visiting our world and making us your children. To you, O God belongs all glory and praise in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
