How Do We Deal with A Carpenter King ~ Closing Thoughts
Greetings Dear Reader,
The life of a carpenter is one of doing what so many of us dream. It is making a living as an artist creating functional beauty. Two thousand years ago this could not have been an easy occupation.
All wood was naturally sourced because you had to find your own. Your shop was environmentally friendly because there were no power tools. Everything was all natural because there were no synthetics.
This particular Carpenter left his shop and became an itinerant preacher. He took his love for creation and transformation with him. The love drove him to repair the world. It drove him to give all to redeem it from it brokenness. The world responded. It nailed him to a set of rough-hewn beams to kill him.
How do we deal with a Carpenter King? We kill him. We reject him. We malign him because he dared to love us with truth and compassion. What I am supposed to do is follow him in every opportunity.
I must let him shape me. I must become the image that he sees in my raw potential. I must follow and become beautiful and useful.
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.”
