Jesus was and is rejected by those who could have been most readily capable of seeing Him! Think about this for a moment and consider who it is that reads, studies and contemplates Christ the most these days. This is what I write and why I write about the desperate need for Grace in churches around the world! The kingdom of God is not about a religious comfort zone checklist – it’s about Unconditional Love from Above flowing through His children to All of God’s creation!
“He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.” John 1:11-13
He came but no one received Him – wow! Here were people living in eager expectation of the coming of The Messiah and they missed Him completely! How could it be that people miss the very thing they have been hearing about, looking for and waiting in eager expectation for millenniums to see?
Everything that happens, every moment, every breath and every being in your life is there because God made it that way! It doesn’t matter what you choose, where you go or how fast you run – God is already there resting in a hammock drinking a glass of wine waiting on you!
Why is this important to grasp?
Because the widest majority of humanity struggles in a moment to moment existence thinking God is no more a part of their daily existence than the man on the moon or that God comes and goes based on their actions!
Seeing God as God Is a quest of Biblical proportions, Knowing God as Love is The Peace that passes All understanding! Both of these journeys end only with the last breath you take here and the first opening of the eyes to see Glory!
God Is a mystery, His Love is “beyond measure” and His Goodness Never ends – be open to this idea and Love and acceptance and Wholeness can and will be your companion!
If you close yourself to a comfort zone of Knowing exactly what God wants, Who He Is and how He wants you to be – your existence will slowly and for some more rapidly slide into a canyon of complacent apathy of the soul embittered by the daily grind with a pasted on smile and a checklist creates darkness in broad Son light!
