So what now God?
Do you feel stuck?
It must be what Neo (Matrix; Keanu Reeves) felt like. Looking around at the world surrounding me, how big the sky is, how the wind feels against me, the monotony of traffic and what seemed to be meaningless days, one after the other, like ants marching in circles. No purpose. Just a machine. Something inside, maybe so miniscule, so microscopic…but there…questions the status quo.
Is this it?
As if something inside feels unsatisfied, something doesn’t feel right. Something is missing. Shouldn’t there be more than this? This place, it’s like the Matrix, it looks real, it feels real, but something is off, something is missing. It is but a shadow of the truth.
Swallow it. It is the only way.
What you see now, this world that surrounds you, you’re right, something is off. Yes, there is something better, there is something you are not seeing and if you swallow the acorn, if the soil is good, you will begin to see…begin to feel, hear, sense a dimension you’ve only hoped and wondered about.
What was once only a question you will begin to see as the only answer.
If you accept what I offer, if you swallow this acorn and the soil within you is good, it will grow and it will help you see things, amazing things.
Mark 4:26-28 NIV
Jesus said “…A man scatters seed on the ground. Night and day, whether he sleeps or gets up, the seed sprouts and grows, though he does not know how. All by itself the soil produces grain – first the stalk, then the head, then the full kernel in the head.”
Ever been told something that surprised you, where your response was something along the line of “Wow, I never knew that!”? Whoever told you that just gave you something, we call it knowledge or awareness. The first time you heard about Jesus, the story of salvation, about this idea of getting into heaven, this belief, this concept was like someone giving you a tiny bit of knowledge or awareness. It’s like someone gave you a seed, whether it grows or not…well that’s another blog.
Feel free to share. When was the first time you heard about this Jesus thing?
