This morning, in my reading of the book of John, I keep thinking about what happens when Jesus enters a situation. It doesn’t stay unchanged. When Jesus arrives, a beautiful disruption happens. When Jesus arrives, things happen. You can’t welcome the presence of Jesus and stay the same. Jesus brings life, hope, truth, healing, and peace. Jesus scatters the darkness and sends demons away. Jesus brings divine order and power to whatever situation He joins.
I think about this as I go about my morning. I think about inviting Jesus fully into every circumstance: my family life, my work, and my plans for the day. I invite Jesus afresh into my writing, my speaking, and my creative acts. You can’t invite Jesus in without something marvelous always happening. I await all that beautiful disruption today.
