Connecting the Dots

July 17, 2012

I guess I am connecting them, in a way, the dots of life. My life.

I’ve been thinking though, just because I am having this God revolution right now, it by no means makes me superior to anyone. Obviously. My point here is that I think this is where so many Christians fail others. They fail both believers and nonbelievers. They all have their theology (which turns into their judgement), they attach that baggage to their identity, and then label others as inferior if they (believers) don’t think they (nonbelievers) “figured it out” yet. Some folks do this, anyway, well a lot of em do it. Do you think so, or is it just me?

Maybe this is where we all let each other down.

When we wrap up our identity in our formulas of faith or our scientific theories of no faith, maybe this is where failure begins. It starts to become this us versus them mentality, I seriously doubt this is what God intended. I think His intentions were quite simple from the beginning.

Love

Period. That’s it, even if you don’t believe, that’s how we should treat each other. He proved that to us in the garden with Adam and Eve and continued to show us His undying love throughout the bible, right up to the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.

Was it always pretty? Nope, it got downright nasty at times. Violent. Bloody. However, the bottom line is that we are human, innately sinful, and life is going to be hard here. But when you open that place in your heart and soul to Him, it’s that place in there that God reserved for Himself, you can find a glimpse.

A glimpse so minuscule, that you may miss it, but that peace that can be felt when you give yourself up, that must be what heaven on Earth will be like…but multiplied by a gazillion.

*Thanks goes out to my brother-in-law for that kick butt picture up there.
