Reflection for the Week - September 9

Capacity for contact. We’re hard wired for connection with God. But this becomes distorted and mired in self-deception. Think of this along the lines of trust, desire, and imagination. We don’t choose these – they’re just part of who we are. In contrast, we do find ourselves with a choice of whom and what to trust, desire, and imagine. This is where our hard wiring gets short circuited. We choose the wrong who’s and what’s and trust idols over the living God. Graciously, God has set in motion a rescue plan – redemption – that will re-connect our short circuits and take us toward new contact with him.
