I have heard it said on many occasions but we are the hands and feet of Jesus. That’s a wonderful metaphor but it invites a question,” How can we be the hands and feet of Jesus if we don’t have the eyes and ears of Jesus? If one is to do the will of God surely one must first discern that will. Yet, I think it all too often we just assume that we already have things pretty much figured out for ourselves. So we just keep doing whatever we’ve been doing. However what we are doing, all too often, is flying blind.
As a Christian, professing that there is a way to live life that is better than all the other ways to live life is a hard job. It’s hard to live that life and hard to talk about that life. As I reflect over the last few weeks, it is apparent to me that we live in a massively broken world. Bombings, buildings collapsing, earth quakes, and other crimes that lead to hurt and pain in others, seems evil and hopeless. Death is all around us. It comes near us and happens around us in unanticipated ways. It wreaks havoc on this world and all that is in it, and, it’s our entire fault.
We are one week away from our annual festival on the church parking lot. I am hoping for great weather and great attendance, all to the glory of God. Many of you have participated in this event in the past, and I am hoping for the same support this year. The festival is about fun, fellowship and service as we touch our community with the love of Jesus.
What is your daily spiritual caloric intake? What is your spiritual body image? We scrutinize our daily physical caloric intake to the point of obsession. I bet most of us know our daily physical caloric intake.
What does heaven look like? No, I don’t mean the jasper and the gold and eternal light and that stuff. I guess what I’m asking is, what does heaven feel like?
