So many Christians are just plain boring.
Actually so many people Christian or not are boring!
The word splendor is far from their lips.
Splendor! To enjoy, to revel, to delight, to frolic, to radiate, to shine…
Splendor, a much underused word today, mainly because it is so expressive.
When did you last splendor in something?
Jesus said these things. Then, raising his eyes in prayer, he said: Father, it’s time. Display the bright splendor of your Son So the Son in turn may show your bright splendor. You put him in charge of everything human So he might give real and eternal life to all in his charge. And this is the real and eternal life: That they know you, The one and only true God, And Jesus Christ, whom you sent. I glorified you on earth By completing down to the last detail What you assigned me to do. And now, Father, glorify me with your very own splendor, The very splendor I had in your presence Before there was a world. (John 17:1-5 MSG)
To delight in the moment, to thrive on the present, is the splendor.
This world is full of too much darkness and decay, too much cynicism and sarcasm.
Find something today to splendor in, whether it be the grass, the ocean, your family, some baking, some drawing, a run along a river, a long cup of tea with a friend, a child, a moment, a reading, a movie, some chocolate, some cake…
Whatever it is take delight dear friend. He has overcome the world and you are his delight.
Of nothing else allow him to delight in you today.
A lifetime of enjoying the moments, can begin today!!
