Who do you say…

C. S. Lewis famously said you can’t just call him a great human teacher…

“And he said to all, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake will save it. For what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses or forfeits himself? For whoever is ashamed of me and of my words, of him will the Son of Man be ashamed when he comes in his glory and the glory of the Father and of the holy angels.”
‭‭Luke‬ ‭9:23-26‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Paul encourages from lock down…

I’m meditating, through copying, the letters of Paul from his 1st Roman incarnation. Just did Colossians 3:12-15… it was a glorious read.

Meditate and pray these things, asking the Father to mold you into these things…

Above all, decide to love.

Don’t drift, but abide…

In Col. 1, Paul has exalted Christ as Creator and Sustainer! Now he reminds us and warns us…

Abide.

Christ our creator and sustainer

I submit for your consideration:

“He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent. For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.”
‭‭Colossians‬ ‭1:15-20‬ ‭ESV‬‬

This poem or early hymn would be a helpful text to meditate on through copying with pen and paper.

Humanism fails us…

God is God. If we think too highly of humanity, hear God’s own words:

And Jesus… “and needed no one to bear witness about man, for he himself knew what was in man.”
‭‭John‬ ‭2:25‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Guard your heart from the temptation to pride and knowing what is and isn’t. Humble yourself before the Lord.
