God in Christ in Us

[God] said, “You cannot see My face,
for no man can see Me and live!”


The Word became flesh, and
dwelt among us, and
we saw His glory,
glory as of the only begotten from the Father,
full of grace and truth.
(Exodus 33:20; John 1:14, NASB)

Father, I see Your holy beauty in Jesus Christ.
Though He is fully human,
He is fully,
gloriously You.

Father, You have given us His Spirit,
so display Him through us,
His Church.
When the world sees us, may they glimpse
His holy heart and
His holy life.
May they sense both
His divinity and
His beautiful humanity.
May they feel
His compassion,
His gentle patience, and
His generous heart.
May they taste
His joy,
His deep peace, and
His flaming passion for You.

Through us,
may they come to know Christ;
and through Christ,
may they come to know You.

In Your service, Father,
when I focus on
my plans and
my glory,
I shrink Your glorious purposes
to the size of
my self-centered heart.
When I lose myself in
Your plans and
Your glory,
I become part of a purpose that is
greater and grander
than this whole world.
Wash away all my ambitions, Father,
but the ambition for
Your glory,
Your Kingdom, and
Your will.
