The world didn’t know him…

Luke 12:16-21  And he told them a parable, saying, “The land of a rich man produced plentifully,  (17)  and he thought to himself, ‘What shall I do, for I have nowhere to store my crops?’  (18)  And he said, ‘I will do this: I will tear down my barns and build larger ones, and there I will store all my grain and my goods.  (19)  And I will say to my soul, Soul, you have ample goods laid up for many years; relax, eat, drink, be merry.’  (20)  But God said to him, ‘Fool! This night your soul is required of you, and the things you have prepared, whose will they be?’  (21)  So is the one who lays up treasure for himself and is not rich toward God.”

Scripture teaches that we desire to be in relationship to God because that is how we were made and how we once were.  It is also written that being separated from God, many laugh at the idea of him and live as kings of their own world.  But we are also told that the seeming absence of God was clearly changed in the coming of Jesus.  Again we do not see him, but the message is sent to us.  Now we have a decsion.  Do we mock?  Do we repent?  Something is true, and it is not made so by bravado nor sheepishness.  Let us choose… wisely…


John 1:9-18 The true light, which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world. (10) He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world did not know him. (11) He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him. (12) But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, (13) who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God. (14) And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth. … (18) No one has ever seen God; the only God, who is at the Father’s side, he has made him known.
