1 Corinthians 15:46 “But that which is spiritual was not first, but that which is natural, then that which is spiritual”

We see ourselves in two dimensions both natural and spiritual. We never stop learning who we are in the Lord and yet as time marches on, we come to know how our soul has been shaped and sometimes warped by the people, places and events that were many times not of our choosing. Our hearts, minds and memories are endlessly explorable yet they are only redeemed when seen in the light of the Holy Spirit who carefully reveals only what He is prepared to heal.

2 Corinthians 1:4 “He always comes alongside us to comfort us in every suffering so that we can come alongside those who are in any painful trial. We can bring them this same comfort that God has poured out upon us”

As we mature spiritually we escape to some extent the gravity of our natural lives and move beyond ourselves, to the world around us and are awakened to the desire of the Lord to share His life and light in a very dark world. With social media we have windows through which we may gaze at the masses in each country as they struggle, dream, and strive to survive in systems whose greatest flaw is their origin of separation from their Creator. Our marching orders have not changed. Our “great mission” should we choose to accept it is to make disciples.

Matthew 28:19-20 Jesus said “go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
