Aren’t we all on some kind of journey seeking more joy and love in our lives? At many points in our consciousness we are to some degree in our past, our present and our future.
The past would include the good and bad impactful moments of our childhood. We are hopefully in the present in not just a random but a mindful state. We are in the future with both the good plans that drive us and the fears of what might befall us.
That state can be timeless. To the Christ follower like me, it amounts to eternal life, now.
One of the beauties of that life as a follower is the drive to enhance one’s relationship with God and people. It is a long, long journey. However, one finds by experience and the Word of God that our Lord is very, very patient. He is filled with a kind of Love we have never felt before knowing Him. He takes our self destructive behaviors and lead us in their diminution. And that’s NOT easy.
Mark Vernon, an English psychotherapist and author put it this way in A Secret of Christianity:
“It’s about how Jesus invited his followers to take up their cross and work out their own salvation so that they, too, might know the mystery of life in all its fullness.”
If you have seen the life of even one follower transformed in a good way, you have seen concrete evidence for this kind of an experience. I believe he or she was a person trying to be more fully human.
