Herod: Afraid of His Shadow

December 26, 2021

Summary

Now, it falls to us to partner with God’s transforming work each day, each moment, and with each person we encounter, sharing the hope we have of a world where will be light and life, and love. This is not easy work God calls us to do, the shadows contain powerful enemies, but with God on our side all things are possible (Luke 18:27). Remember, we need not fear the shadows any longer, for the light of Jesus is shining God’s love and grace and mercy and power into those dark spaces; and once God’s light reaches you, there is no possibility of staying as you once were. God is present on earth, among mortals, and God is already accomplishing God’s vision of a restored humanity and a recreated world.
