A New Reality

Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life.” (John 14:6, NIV)

I’m in a hotel room where the bathroom sink has mirrors on three sides. I lean in and look to the side and see the fronts and backs of my head. It’s a different perspective, and it stretches as far as I can see, on toward infinity. Fascinating! I feel like I’ve glimpsed a new reality.

But I step back and realize there is no depth. There is no new reality–only a small sink with mirrors.

Lord, don’t let me get caught up in life that way. Outside of You, life is a small sink with mirrors. No depth, no length, no mystery, no reality.

In You is all the depth, all the length, all the new perspectives.

In You are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge (Colossians 2:3).

Keep me, Lord, in You.

we cannot understand this world
without understanding You.
You are wisdom.
We want to know You.

Hymn: Know the Lord
