Scripture: Genesis 3:1-13 What could God do through us if we stopped hiding, hiding from God, hiding from each other, hiding all the bits that we don’t think are good enough? No matter what we’ve done or left undone, Jesus came to seek and to save us.
Exodus 13:17-22, 14:10-14 PT Barnum helped create what would later become the Ringling Brothers & Barnum and Bailey Circus, which called itself the greatest show on earth. But the greatest show means the impossible comes true: our ever-living, ever-loving, death-defying God relinquishes immortality only to take it up again to show us the way to life eternal, life in all its fullness.
Acts 2: 1-4, 11b-17, 21
Ruth 1: 1-18 Ruth abandons her people and gods to vow undying love for her mother-in-law and the God of Judah. The kind of deep, abiding love that Ruth offers Naomi is what God intends for all of us.
John 17: 20-24
