In John 6 we read that Jesus said “no one can come to me unless the Father draws him” and at first glance this can be startling. Perhaps it never startled you, but it did me. However, after meditating on it and just being with Him, I came to find that words which sounded as though they were excluding were actually giving me life, ETERNAL life!
We are perhaps, at this moment (well, I am) singing a familiar song in our hearts. This song brings tears to my eyes and sends my heart and soul soaring! For, you see, we were drawn in. We love Him because He first loved us! How amazing is it that with all my flaws and constant mistakes . . . my hurts, my weakness, my stumbling, He chose me for His own? Life is amazing not because I got it right, but because He transforms it, transforms me, and most of all draws me close and loves me!

We all have darkness in our lives at one point or another. We can, sadly, focus on the darkness and thus miss the light that beckons us to move forward. The light may sometimes seem like a tiny flicker, but following it reveals the magnitude it holds for us. Think of the stars at night. How many times I’ve stood on the porch and glanced at those tiny stars . . . but I also recall from science class that they are not so tiny! They are also quite powerful. After all, when I stand on my porch and glance around me, all I see is the darkness, but when I look up and see the light, I find that it has overtaken the darkness! Just like the times I look toward our amazing God! In 1 John 2:8 are told “Yet I am writing you a new command; its truth is seen in him and you, because the darkness is passing and the true light is already shining.”
As Chris Tomlin so beautifully sings, “Our God is Greater!!!” Click this to hear him sing this great song.
