Imaginings

If we did not question all of life, we would not learn or grow. If we accepted everything that came along as truth, we would be a fool.

We must search, we must ask.

But asking mankind would make us a fool. Man has set himself up as god, thinking God old-fashioned, ancient, not with the times.

I watch spring opening before me. The grip of cold has really gone. Today I felt it as I walked.  The geese feed on the field in pairs. The starlings dot the field a few moments, then fly off as one. The robin song is louder, happier. This happens every year…seasons change all by themselves.

Christians celebrate the resurrection of Jesus Christ every year at this time. We contemplate his life, his sorrows, and being left alone on the cross. Even the Father turned away.

Though the whole world does not accept Jesus Christ as Lord, the world revolves around everything he did. We are in the year 2018 AD…imagine this.

I do not pretend to know all about this. I was not there at the beginning of time, only God was there. Living in a broken world, I can barely imagine the beauty of Garden of Eden. Were there proper gardens with rows and rows of vegetables? Or were things grown helter-skelter in a display of wonder? Did intricate flowers grow that have now become extinct?

Did the animals talk?

I only know that Jesus came to earth to live and teach but a few short years. Not to become King of Israel, or the whole world…not yet.  He came when he did to give it all up to save the souls of mankind.

Look at our broken world and tell me we can have hope all on our own. We are floundering. Until we humble ourselves and stop playing god, we will never get it…this life we were given.

 

“No one’s ever seen or heard anything like this, 

never so much as imagined

anything quite like it–

what God has arranged for those who love him.” 

1 Corinthians 2:9 Msg

 

Celebrate the life and death of our Lord Jesus Christ. Search for him. May you invite him into your life for the fullness of his love. He will never turn you away.

 

“Give me your lantern and compass, give me a map, so I can find my way to the

sacred mountain, to the place of your presence, to enter the place of worship, meet

my exuberant God, sing my thanks with a harp, magnificent God, my God.”

Ps. 43 Msg

  1. You’ve certainly hit on some important truth for our Easter observances. All our “big days” on the church calendar call us to humility, don’t they?
    Thanks, Diane, and Happy Easter!
