“Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen” (1 Timothy 1:17).
From this verse, we hear the words of the hymn, “Immortal, invisible, God only wise, in light inaccessible hid from our eyes, most blessed, most glorious, the Ancient of Days, Almighty, victorious, Thy great name we praise.” Scripture is alive with the truth and breathes, even in our singing, the truth of the Incarnation and the grace and mercy that comes forth from God for our benefit is breathed.
Lord, there are so many that have given testimony of Your goodness and graciousness, and I often just go on through life as though none of this matters. Help me, O Lord, to live into the grace and mercy You have given me that so I would follow closely with You all the days of my life. You are the One who has made all things possible and only in You is there true liberty and life.
Lord Jesus, You have made the invisible visible and made life from death. You have come so that all who are in You might now and forever be guided by You, the light that shines in the darkness. Guide me, O Lord, that I would hold fast to the truth You have revealed once for all. Guide me so that Your light might be reflected through me and that I might shine in this dark world for all to see that You are in me and I in You. Amen.
