The Odd Couple -- Me and God

Paul, Silas and Timothy, to the church of the Thessalonians in God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ: I Thessalonians 1:1


Advent is the season for looking to the time when Jesus will return in glory. I Thessalonians is a letter from Paul (with Silas and Timothy) that also looks for his return. As we worship our Father and prepare for Jesus to return, it strikes me how we often speak of the Father and Jesus as if they were two separate entities. Take a moment to reflect on the amazing nature of God who is three persons and yet still one (Trinity). The nature of God that is beyond our understanding should bring us to our knees, but we get so used to the words we often lose the sense of awe. We are blessed to begin this day realizing that God, who is so beyond our understanding, has chosen to call us his children. Wow!
