In the early Testament, God often appears as mysterious to His children, especially remaining obscure for unbelievers, whilst also testing the faiths of our forbearers. To this day, for believers, His depth and heights surpass our knowledge. Though God’s everlasting presence and love were evident from Genesis onwards, this mystery was once and for all united through Christ, God’s word made flesh.
And we pray:
Lord my Father, blessed am I to have received Your Gospels in the word made flesh through Your only begotten Son. With our earthly souls mired in soil and sin, may praise be heaped upon Him; in Christ, for showing us the route to Your Heavenly home. For showing us a way to salvation, and opening our hearts to the Holy Spirit which moves through all things. In uniting us with You, Lord, my Father, my Heavenly Father. Amen.
