I love when the sunlight shines on me, its like God is communicating to me, “I am here”. It’s just a good reminder. Peace, Love and Kindness is the motto I preach and teach. I contemplate frequently, what is the end of things? Because it is so important, one must understand the end of something to gauge if it’s worth.
I find myself far more often seeing things that aren’t worth it than things that are. The things I value and cherish the most are not even of this world, it was something that God was able to reveal through me to me. This whole world could be destroy and that which is valuable to God could be untouched. Sometimes I ponder upon the questions of, what is the purpose of being here if death awaits us? What’s the point of building ourselves up only to brought down? What’s the point of becoming somebody if in end I become nobody?
It better to be like John the Baptist living in the wilderness, that to dwell with heathens who awaken and slumber with evil continually on their hearts. I believe this is why Jesus said, “Truly, I say to you, among those born of women there has arisen no one greater than John the Baptist. Yet the one who is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.” The kingdom heaven is within you and to be born of women is to be born into this world. Jesus spoke of how when we are in the world we can’t be more righteous that someone like John the Baptist who separated himself from this world while yet still being in the world. However if we connect to Christ within us, we can exceed John the Baptist because we are not of the world. To be born of a woman is to be of this world. There is a second birth that takes place that John the Baptist was making a way for. For Christ birth in the heart of man.
This one scripture Matthew 11:11 is connected many other scriptures including when the bible says “The last shall be first and the first shall be last”
We sacrifice so much to get so little. We make our whole lives about meaningless things. I love the verse in the gospel of Thomas that says “He who has known the world has fallen into a corpse; and he who has fallen into a corpse, the world is not worthy of him!” – Thomas 56 I truly believe that this world is dead, there is no life in it because it lacks God. One can point out that God had withdrawn himself from this world but that wouldn’t have happen if we didn’t reject him. God left when we denied him access to our hearts. Jesus said “The foxes have holes, the birds have nest but the son of man has no place to lay his head” Jesus only seeks fit for him to rule in our hearts as king, that’s his home.
“For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.” – Matthew 12:34
“Keep your heart with all vigilance, for from it flow the springs of life.” – Proverbs 4:23
