2 Samuel 7:1-11, 16Romans 16:25-27 • Luke 1:26-38
We are the Home
We the Lumber, the floors, the ceilings, the electrical, the plumbing
The doors, the windows, the closets, the rooms, the memories
Home is where the heart is.
Home is where God appoints a place for my people
Home is the place to bring the threads, the saga, the peace and the stability
To build a home or a house for God is something have done then and now. What if God builds a house for us as before, so today, right now.
God is uncontainable, God’s presence over flows from the temple.
God is prevenient grace. The grace that is present right now.
We hear that has and will plant the people and be with the people
In the torn pages of history God meets the eye of the people, in Babylonian Captivity. Then, there was no rest, no house, no sovereign, there was lament. There was God.
There was God in the letter to the Roman’s. God strengthen them and us. When we start and end with God. There is benediction and revelation when mystery, kerygma, paranesis proclaim who is God! God is action, doing, God is a verb—“Thy will be done, now!”
Gabriel came then and now. Mary, annunciation, incarnatin, perplexed, afraid, submission, blessed, called, God bearer
Gabriel came then and now, do not be afraid, you have found favour with God,
Now is the time for holy inbreaking, messenger, bright column of light, nothing will be impossible.
God chooses Mary, God choose us.
God chooses magificat, reign of justice
The bold YES, here I am
Here we. Go where I send thee
