Glimpses of grace seen in the everyday

When Jesus Shows Up

Magi from the east were looking for a King.
    Jesus showed up as the Son of David in Bethlehem.

Simeon was watching for the Messiah God had promised he’d see before he died.
    That Messiah showed up in the Temple in his mother’s arms.

Disciples on a stormy lake were looking for a lifesaver!
     The Savior showed up walking on the water and calmed the storm.

Mary Magdalene was distraught over the loss of her beloved Rabbi and Friend.
     Jesus whispered her name and turned her tears into incredulous joy.

Two men expressed frustrated hopes on the road to Emmaus.
    A Stranger walked with them, explained it all and then revealed His identity.

Seven disciples were returning from a futile fishing trip.
     A Man on shore gave them advice and their nets were filled!

“It’s Jesus!”  When Jesus shows up, all is well.  He is all we need!
