There is a danger in getting stuck in the weeds.
What sort of "shadows" are blocking you from seeing Jesus Christ as He really was, is, and is to come?
Have you experienced God's great love, grace, and mercy in your life, however big or small it might have been?
"Secret knowledge" seems like something worth striving to attain, until you realize all that is really needed is no longer hidden at all.
Without Jesus at the center, it all falls apart.
When we think and pray for others to have their faith strengthened, and help make it so, we discover something far bigger than ourselves.
What Jesus came to do in the flesh in His earthly ministry is now complete. And we can see it firsthand in a net "full of large fish, 153 of them."
The peace and comfort God richly provides does not usually come by way of calm, uneventful, and unobtrusive times in our life.
There is a process we all go through that can both be enlightening and include some of the hardest things we must deal with in our lives. It is this process of orientation, disorientation, and reorientation.
Who is your one? As people who follow Jesus Christ, we have a noble calling—indeed a holy one.
