Finally, all of you, have unity of spirit, sympathy, love for one another, a tender heart, and a humble mind. (I Peter 3:8 NRSV)
A man and his little boy were testing the Springtime winds with a brand-new kite. It was a big kite, colorful and fancy. And they had a huge spool of string. The breezes were blowing stiff. And the kite begged to run wild. And so they let out all the string. And the kite went so high that the little boy couldn't even see it anymore. Is it still there? he asked. Yeah, it's still there! But how do you know for sure? I can't see it anymore! I know it's still there, his Dad said, because I can feel it tugging at the string!

And that's how we make our testimony of faith, isn't it? When we love somebody, even when we can't see him, we say he's tugging at our heart-strings. And when we confess that Jesus is Lord and Saviour, we feel the tug of his love inside. Even though he's disappeared from sight for a while, we know he's alive, and we know where he's at, and we know what he's doing, and we know he's coming back again. That's the testimony we make with Paul here: Our lives are now hidden with Christ in God, and when Christ appears, we will be with him in glory!

Dear Jesus, keep tugging at my heart-strings, as I build my faith by sharing God's hope. In Jesus name, Amen.
