Reflections Along the Jesus Way

April 30, 2023 – Quote for the Day:

“Our physical world is filled with death and decay.  The cycle of life ensures aging and obsolescence.  You buy a shiny new car and five years later it looks like it has been through a war.  You move into a new house and you try to maintain it, take care of the plants and the lawn, keep the house painted – but sometimes, in spite of your best efforts, given the time you have, the house seems to start falling apart around you.  You buy a computer, only to find out a few years later that it is obsolete.  Or, you discover that your still ‘new’ computer needs new software – it needs updating.

But while everything physical ages and deteriorates, God makes all things new. In order to picture what God is doing, we have to see through his eyeglasses and share his vision.  As Bobby Kennedy used to say, ‘Some men see things the way they are and ask why? I prefer to dream things that never have been and ask why not?’ Human lives can seem like discarded objects found in trash cans and junk heaps.  Our lives are corroded and coated with layers of filth, dust and grime.  Our lives are filled with anger, bitterness, lust, envy, jealousy and hatred.  We aren’t a pretty picture, but God loves us anyway, and instead of walking away from us, God says, I Am Making Everything New.”
