Reflections on the Daily Readings
from the Perspective of Creighton Students

“Those who have never been told of him shall see and those who have never heard of him shall understand.”  I love this last line from the Romans passage in today’s readings.  There is such promise and hope within it.  Before Jesus, only a small group of people knew of God’s love and no one had yet received salvation.  All of this changed when Jesus came.  Because of His love, I am free.  If not for Jesus, each of us would be just like those described in the passage, never seeing and never hearing, living our lives without hope.  But, how blessed we are to know of Jesus, to hear and understand His word.  

Today, I have no new observations or interpretations of the readings.  Today, I only have gratitude that God would send His Son to die for me, so that I can have hope.  There are days when I struggle and fall and days when I don’t understand what is going on in the world around me.  The one thing that I can always count on is my God, my Rock, my Salvation.  Today, I think of what my life would be like without that safety and salvation.  Without the grace of God, I would be nothing, and so I am ever thankful for the gift of God’s love and eternal life with Him.  I think of the lyrics from a song, “If you’re alive and you’ve been redeemed, rise and sing, rise and sing.”  Rise and Sing!
