In putting everything under him, God left nothing that is not subject to him. Yet at present we do not see everything subject to him. But we see Jesus. – Hebrews 2:8-9 (NIV)

In our own time, we are left to see Jesus in other people – those who are filled with the Holy Spirit. Often, they appear where we least expect. Be ready, all the same, and welcoming.

Yea, it is that Word of Reconciliation, which God hath committed to such as himself hath called, to make them Ambassadors for his Son Christ Jesus; by the Ministry of which, they turn People from Darkness to Light, and from the Power of Satan unto God, that they may receive Forgiveness of Sins, and Inheritance among them that are sanctified, through Faith that is in Christ Jesus. (Elizabeth Bathurst, 1655?-1685)
