Shepastor: "Where Are You Looking for Jesus?"

So the Word became human and made his home among us. He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness. And we have seen his glory, the glory of the Father's one and only Son. (John 1:14, New Living Translation)

Who knew that the baby born to a poor, young, teenage girl and her fiancĂ©e (an “average Joe”) would be “the Word made flesh dwelling among us!” God has a way of surprising us! So often we miss what God is sending because we are looking for the wrong thing. Frequently we are looking for a king in a palace when the King is actually in a stable. When Jesus presents himself to us through His Word, or through a stranger, or through a child, or through someone needing our help, what is our response?

During this Advent Season, let us take time to hear, see and respond to Jesus however He chooses to come to us.

"And the King will say, 'I tell you the truth, when you did it to one of the least of these my brothers and sisters, you were doing it to me!' Matthew 25:40, NLT
