There are moments I feel I am but a speck of dust in the general scheme of things in the universe that just one swipe of the cleaning rug and I am gone away forever, with the universe none the poorer. And yet there are moments that I am aware that I am a part of the unfolding of this universe that without me things will not be as they should; that I am no random event but that the creator of all this had just me in mind when he placed the stars and planets where they should be. And since I am here today, he must have intended that. “Today this Scripture passage is fulfilled and being fulfilled in my life.”
He stood up to read and was handed a scroll of the prophet Isaiah. He unrolled the scroll and found the passage where it was written:
The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to bring glad tidings to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free,and to proclaim a year acceptable to the Lord.
Rolling up the scroll, he handed it back to the attendant and sat down, and the eyes of all in the synagogue looked intently at him.
He said to them,”Today this Scripture passage is fulfilled in your hearing.”Luke 1:1-4, 4,14-21
