From darkness to light, this is the story we all share as the people of God. He draws us out to draw us in. What does it look like to be marked distinctly by the presence and power of God? Everyday faithfulness while praying and pleading for miraculous spiritual breakthrough. We’re a people that expect God to do big miraculous things, and we ask for it, and we ask for it because we know God is willing, and then we hold it all with open hands. When we talk about God’s glory, what we’re saying is that he is better than anything else we could ever pursue, want, or grasp. The thing we’re going to have to fight against all the days of our lives is letting other things define our identity and who we are. We’re far worse than we think we are, but he loves us far more than we think he does and it hasn’t overcome the mercy of God in Christ. God is glorious, but he’s merciful. If he’s glorious and not merciful that’s not good news, and if he’s merciful but not glorious that is not good news, but because he is glorious and merciful we celebrate.
