I AM - The Resurrection and the Life - Life
Greetings Dear Reader,
I did not plan for this writing to occur on Mother’s Day but here it is. All human life flows from the Father through mothers. As with all things human there is joy and sorrow in having children. But as is designed all of our lives begin with a mother.
It is life that matters. It is to have life that is abundant that we seek. Jesus claims to be that life. In that life is freedom. In that life is the answer to everything. I realize that sounds puerile but simplicity does not mean it is not true.
Paul writes that “in him (Jesus) we live and move and have our being.” All life proceeds from God whether we acknowledge it or not. Jesus offers to give this life to anyone who will accept it. Troubles do not disappear nor do all the answers appear when we embrace Christ.
It is in this life in Christ that we find hope and sustenance. It is in the following that I find my way. I have seen life without Christ and feel so much sorrow for those who choose it. This is not judgment or condemnation. It is compassion.
The God/man from whom all life proceeds calls all life back to himself. It is in that call that we find the life of following. It is in Christ alone that life has breath and breadth. This narrow way gives life infinite possibilities.
Wishing you joy in the journey,
Mat 13:52 So Jesus said to them, "That is why every writer who has become a disciple of Christ’s rule of the universe is like a home owner. He liberally hands out new and old things from his great treasure store.”
