Spot the Jesus -Day 3. Brimming with Potential


However, If we look more intently at the people we encounter on a typical day, we will see who they truly are—persons loved by God, people that Jesus died for. Regardless of appearance or situation, the woman, man, or child before you is brimming with holy possibility. Consider that for as second. Understand that Jesus comes to you in many faces and places.
When Jesus came to share our human existence, he changed what it means to be ordinary people going through the day. Each one of us has a purpose and a place in the world. Each of us experiences pain, fatigue, humor, and hope

I think I've mentioned this before but, after I gave birth to my daughter something within me changed and I had this new found love for humanity. I saw everyone as a child (I know that sounds strange) a child of someone I guess, not necessarily mine. But that is who we are children of God.

We all like to be heroes. But it’s a given that each of us will fail in our lives. Nevertheless, when we hit our limits or even when we sin, we can turn to God for acceptance as his children, mercy, and the strength to make amends and sin no more. In that turning to God and in our opening ourselves up to God’s grace and forgiveness, we become better people and more like Jesus.

Have a lovely day
