August 3: Christ

He is the image of the invisible God.
Colossians 1:15

Christ is the manifest presence of God. 

More and more people talk about signs, wonders, miracles and other manifestations of God. Let us not forget, however, that Christ Himself is the manifest presence of God.

We are seekers not of manifestations, but seekers of God’s manifest presence. Thereby, we are seekers ultimately of Christ Himself. 

Today as you seek to encounter the manifest presence of God, seek Christ!

Father God, today I seek not Your manifestations, but Your presence. I seek Christ.

This daily Christ-encountering, fire-starter is not intended to replace your daily Bible reading and prayer time, but rather to motivate you to spend extended time in His presence.
