I'm hoping that wasn't too overwhelming. I realized post record that there was a lot of material sort of shoved in there to be consumed.
As always, here are my notes for you. We're going to stick with the same pattern of splitting out two verses from the text and focusing on the keywords and ideas that convict us.
I've been spending a lot of time thinking about what it would have been like to be one of Christ's disciples in those last few bits of time with him. As he's speaking cryptically about where he's going, the way what he's started will continue through them, how he's leaving but they won't be left. I wonder how confused I'd be, how nervous all the messages would leave me, what the others would be doing in reaction. And, I'm in awe that we get to share in those moments because of the bible.
The verse of the week for you:
"I have told you this so that my joy may be in you,
and that your joy may be complete."
- John 15:11
My prayer is that we all feel complete in Him this week regardless of what feels lacking or lesser or missing. May we rest in the knowledge that He completes us fully and whole-y.
Encouragement by the links for you:
Yes, this is a Christmas carol. But, it's so powerful right now and always. (Sarah Reeves & Pentatonix)
