gratitude & hoopla: Good Question

gratitude & hoopla

"Nothing taken for granted; everything received with gratitude; everything passed on with grace." G. K. Chesterton


Good Question

I signed up a while back for Michael Card's weekly email devotional. As you might expect, it's powerful and thought provoking, not ducking the tough questions. Anyway, here's a piece of this week's devotional musing:
Whenever Jesus reveals Himself in a new way, He invariably must tell the disciples, "Don't be afraid." In our current passage (Mark 6:47-50), when Jesus walks on the water he must say it, to the synagogue ruler (Mk 5:36), to Jarius (Lk 8:50), after the Transfiguration (Mt 17:7), after the Resurrection (Mt 28:10). The question begs to be asked; Has Jesus ever revealed Himself in such a way to me or my congregation? Have we ever been so utterly amazed by His awesomeness that we required to hear those words, "Don't be afraid. It's Me!"
