Don’t you love the way God uses metaphors? We complicate things so much, so often, that we are in danger of missing the simplest of truths.
The Son – came from Heaven – to bring LIGHT to hearts and . . . resurrection.
He ultimately renews everything. He is superior to the sun.
The sun – comes from sky – to bring LIGHT to earth and . . . nourishing life.
But it ultimately ages everything. It is inferior to the Son.
We, the humans who surrendered our dominion to the serpent, often that event is referred to as “The Fall”
Our parents covered their shame with LEAVES that crumple, crack, shrivel, and would need to be remade EVERY new morning.
Oh the striving they would have awakened to- each new sun –
if not for the shed blood of that first cherished animal.
Oh the striving I would be awakening to each new sun –
if not for the shed blood of a spotless Lamb.
There is such glory in the Son!!!
His mercies are new every morning.
Jesus takes what is dead and He resurrects it.
Can you think of any ‘dead’ things that could use new life?
Its time . . . give it to God who has the power to make all things new.
The leaves. They surrender to earth, become humus and feed new seed-life under the sun.
The Believers. They surrender to God, become vessels of His power, and sow the Seed for new life in the Son.
