The “Dullest” of People: a Reflection on Psalm 94, Genesis 4:17-26, Hebrews 3:1-11 and J

Philip and Nathaniel saw, experienced and testified to the amazing good news of Jesus. Jesus’ words and actions spoke volumes to these men. The LORD will not forsake his people, even though we are often the “dullest” of people. There is power in the name of God. The first family began to invoke the name of God as they sorted through the twists and turns of their brokenness. Faith is from the beginning as is grace. As we are embraced by God and we invoke the name of the God of good news, life changes; perspectives change; behavior and attitudes come more in line with the will of the Father. Oh yes, in Jesus, we are partners in a heavenly calling. The more I experience Jesus loving and changing me in my brokenness, I am compelled to share the life changing good news of Jesus to and with others. I celebrate the movement out of my dullness and the opportunity Jesus gives me to embrace and engage the dullness in and of others. What a privilege. What a hope.

Scripture texts are taken from the two-year daily lectionary cycle which follows the liturgical calendar and begins on the First Sunday of Advent.
