Epiphanies: Dreams

In Caesarea there was a man named Cornelius, a centurion of the Italian Cohort, as it was called. He was a devout man who feared God with all his household; he gave alms generously to the people and prayed constantly to God. One afternoon at about three o’clock he had a vision in which he clearly saw an angel of God coming in and saying to him, “Cornelius.” He stared at him in terror and said, “What is it, Lord?” He answered, “Your prayers and your alms have ascended as a memorial before God. Now send men to Joppa for a certain Simon who is called Peter; he is lodging with Simon, a tanner, whose house is by the seaside.” When the angel who spoke to him had left, he called two of his slaves and a devout soldier from the ranks of those who served him, and after telling them everything he sent them to Joppa. ~ Acts 10:1-8

Another outsider encounter in Acts was between the Gentile Cornelius and the Apostle Peter. Up until this point, the people of the Way (those following the risen Christ) believed that the way was just for the Jewish people.

But Peter and Cornelius would find their way together - and we're told, that way came through dreams.

Have you ever encountered the divine in a dream?

Has a dream ever made you rethink how something in God's world worked?

Or have you even intentionally dreamed up something for God?

A way to live and love and work in the world that others can dream along with you?

God has an affinity for dreamers, just as God does for the outsider.

So dream big. Dream where you believe God is leading you. Dream of all the ways you can lead others into the great adventure of God's love so that they can encounter the divine as well.

Help me to follow your dreams, Lord. Amen
