Jesus returned to Galilee in the power of the Spirit. --Lk 4.14
Returns are the outcome of wildernesses.
Theophilus would no doubt have been familiar with the Illiad and its sequel the Odyssey, where Odysseus the Greek hero returns home after the war of Troy. It takes Odysseus 10 years to make it home, and once he gets home he has to set his family free. Luke tells Jesus story in such a way that Theophilus would have immediately seen the parallels.
The return is part of the journey. This week we will be taking up our time talking about the return.
Where do you sense a greater power at work in your life? Where do you see the Spirit working?
Think through this and jot some words down. It's time to return and help your family, people, and those in the scope of your world. It's time.
Please throw a few lines out at me.
