In the Creator’s Image – Just Like Us

In the Creator’s Image – Just Like Us

In the Creator’s image there is neither Greek nor Jew, insider and outsider, native or barbarian. Christ is in all. Christ is all. Putting to death the ways of the world will never be accomplished by social surgery. Not in God’s kingdom, at least.

More Than Rules

More Than Rules

If Christ is ultimate, then the rules are penultimate. Always, always less than Christ himself. Which means that sometimes the rules can change. Sometimes, the rules should change. The rules are just a shadow of what really matters, what’s really real. They’re a tool, not a purpose, not a goal, not an end. It’s Christ who is really real … and we are in service to him.

Living Within Christ

Living Within Christ

Sometimes – this is so hard to describe – sometimes it’s as if I am living inside light. This is the most beautiful and real of all. Like there is a light surrounding me that is full of beauty and holiness. And I get to live inside of it. As if I’m breathing underwater. Or living inside starlight. Or surrounded by flame, but not burned.

Can you imagine that? Can you close your eyes and imagine?

Christ Within

Christ Within

If we see that the world holds Christ within it, everything becomes a whole lot more holy to us... more deserving of respect and reverence...

If Christ lives within me... not only can I love and value myself more... but my thoughts, my words, my actions, are not just my own... but they are also Christ’s...

If other people hold Christ within themselves, they become a lot harder to hate and judge, and easier to love and treat with dignity...
