RCL Daily Devotion for Monday, April 8, 2019
RCL Daily Devotions written by Daniel D. Maurer from RCL Worship Resources (see more).
Imagine yourself sitting in a gigantic theater, or perhaps a stadium. The stage is so far away you can barely make out where the performer is supposed to appear any moment now.
The throngs of people all around you quiver with the same anticipation you feel in your heart. You’re excited, but nervous all the same. Soon, he will appear and you’ve always told all of your friends that you wanted to see him, live.
When the concert begins, you’re in ecstasy.
Is this what heaven will be like? Or is this only a metaphor through which the writer of Hebrews describes the role Jesus played—that he gave us a glimpse of God’s own self through his broken flesh, but also through his resurrection?
Perhaps it’s a bit of both. What’s for certain, though, is the curtain has been drawn, the stage is set, we know God’s will for creation.
Now, let’s not forget this for today; it’s easy to do.
Finish devotion with short prayer written in the first person or a thoughtful question for your readers.
