His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness… 2 Peter 1:3
For we did not follow cleverly devised myths when we made known to you the power and coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but we were eyewitnesses of his majesty.
Sometimes this Jesus thing is just too incredible to really believe. I know, maybe I’m not supposed to say that out loud – but it is a story beyond all reason. There are times I can go from the stirring up of holy passion to complete darkness in 0 to 60 seconds.
Contrary to the “lie” the Chief of Darkness is selling, Peter reminds me this is a “true story.” He and a few of his closest buddies did not make this stuff up. They didn’t fake and then bury the breadcrumbs that would lead me down some rabbit trail – as a cruel prank.
When I read his words out loud – like he might be talking to me over coffee – I can hear his passion. “WE WERE EYEWITNESSES. We heard the voice…we were on the holy mountain and then WE HEARD THE VOICE!
Do not get tripped up. The LIGHT has come…fully charged.
Some days the Light might seem like a lonely candle in a very big darkness but pay attention – dawn is coming. And Jesus, the Morning Star, is going to rise… and his divine power is going to overtake the darkness… for all time.
You can believe it!”
