RCL Daily Devotion for Saturday, October 5, 2019

RCL Daily Devotions written by R. Fergus Moir from RCL Worship Resources (see more).

Growing up, I thought God was detached from human affairs. Historically, the institution of Christianity has painted a picture of a distant God, an old, white man in the sky barely touching the finger of Adam at creation, and nothing more.

Jesus reveals a very different God, a God who is vitally present in the minutia of everyday life, a God who wraps himself around us completely, a God who loved us so much she took on human form and became one of us in every bodily way.

This is a God who is moved with compassion by the pains and trials of living in the world. We cry out to God, “Have mercy on us!” and God touches our eyes and reveals a love so profound we cannot possibly comprehend it. Having received such grace, how can we do anything else but follow?

Ever-present God, lead me in your paths each day. Amen.
