I keep reading about finding myself — knowing who I am and what I want in life. Many of us are in search for answers to life’s hardest questions. We don’t understand what to think in a world of philosophies ready to be grasped. It’s really quite easy…we just need to keep looking among the myriad philosophies of man to find the one that best suits our desires because…really…it’s all about what we desire….right?
I’m feeling nauseous thinking about all the not-so-subtle illusions of creating our own gods.
So many are doing it.
Why can’t I?
Sure. Yes. Go right ahead.
Create your own sacred space.
Commune with the moon…
Be your own voice of wisdom.
Find your own unique path to god because that’s what he told us to do.
Can you see it?
That’s what he told us to do.
Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the LORD God had made.
He said to the woman, “Did God really say, …?”
“You won’t die!” the serpent hissed.
For God knows that in the day you eat it your eyes will be opened,
You will be like God, knowing good and evil.”
Eat that sweet morsel of forbidden fruit.
It won’t kill you!
And so we partake. We reach out and look at the beauty of the philosophy we so desperately want to believe is Truth.
But, it’s not. It’s a lie. The oldest of lies.
We are not our own god.
We are not goddesses in need of enlightenment.
We do not need to develop our own sacred space to find peace in this world.
The Sacred is in us.
His Holy Spirit resides in us.
The mystery in a nutshell is just this:
Christ is in you,
therefore you can look forward to sharing in God’s glory.
It’s that simple.
That is the substance of our Message.
So why do we look further?
Why do we try to create beyond The Creator?
Are we still listening to the crafty god?
“My god wouldn’t…
My god says to me…
My god wants me…
That’s not my god, the god I serve wouldn’t say fill in the blank…”
Choose the god you desire,
but know this:
The God of the Universe is not bound by us.
We do not get to create Him in our image.
He created us, not the other way around.
Get to know Him.
He revealed Himself from Genesis to Revelation.
He has sent His Word for us to see The Truth.
So the Word became human and lived here on earth among us.
He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness.
And we have seen His glory, the glory of the only Son of the Father.
At the name of Jesus EVERY KNEE WILL BOW,
of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth,
and every tongue will confess that
Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Jesus is our Sacred Space.
In Him all the fullness of God dwelled in bodily form.
Through His Spirit we have become partakers of the Divine Nature.
In no other god will you find Life.
