Everything in my world is being redefined. All understanding is shifting because after all:
“I am making all things new!” Revelation 21:5
We know that when Jesus died on the cross, the veil in the temple was torn! All separation was removed between God and men (…and women. Just for the record, man is NOT the mediator between women and God.) How amazing that He brought us in-to Him!
I am so happy that its spring, but one thing winter is good for, is some good object lessons. (I promise, I’ll bring this back around.) It snowed this year for us, and my favorite event was hearing it melt! We had a few warm days where the sun was doing the melting. Our backyard is surrounded by an 8 foot privacy fence. The snow had cleared everywhere…except where the fence had blocked the sun. It was so strange to look at! There was literally a perfect line down the side of the yard: grass on one side, snow on the other. It was so warm, the snow shouldn’t have been there. (I wish I had taken a picture!)
This is a picture of one of the choices we have as a believer! We could bask in the Son! We have been given direct access to its warmth and clarity, His perfectness! If we decide to take one step to the left we will find ourselves under the shade of the fence (when we ONLY get our revelation from other people. Ie. Teachers, pastors, ect) Our understanding of the Son, will have to be filtered through the blockage of the fence. What a vast difference in the outcome! The section in direct Sonlight is flourishing! It is green and thriving even right beside the effects of winter. The section under the fence is cold and dead and unable to produce life. It’s not making the progress that nature should make when it comes in contact with the sun. How often do we ONLY look to others to spoon feed us our revelation?
You have direct access to the Son! He gave up His life to make this happen! Why would we go back to the way things were before His ultimate act of love?
This is where I have been for the past 10 years! I have been slowly realizing what teachings I grew up with that were under the fence. I have direct access to Jesus and am learning to bask in His love. He’s changing things! He’s redefining for me even the definition of love! It’s strange to look back because everything looks so different now. I will never forget where I came from, but will always be moving forward! This is what I want to share with you. I want to share my journey of how Jesus is: Redefining Everything!
