We are seekers of Life, a Life less ordinary
It seems the further we go the more we change. There is no going back. Ahead is a new spiritual era, wonder and awe, things we have not dreamed nor imagined. The known is left far behind in the Brightness of His Gaze. It is hypnotic and like a moth to the Flame we are drawn out to a place from which we can never return.
The Way is often hidden before us. It moves and turns off our conventional map. Beyond what we comprehend. We walk by faith not understanding. We are those that are lost in the depths of Love with no hope or desire to return. Plunging ever deeper into His death that His life may also work powerfully through us. Pure joy!
Ahead in our hearts we see the Wild Islands on Fire. Ahead we see Europe’s Day Rising. A great and mighty day touching into the core of Islam. A challenging day with the destiny of a radical generation in our hands. We embrace this day and groan inwardly for it to fully manifest and burn uncontrolled without boundaries or borders or limits. All we want is the Flame. His Flame.
What that looks like we do not know but we have glimpses of it in the past. People like Paul. A life blinded by the Light so he could finally see. One man who carved through his generation recklessly leaving blazing trails for those to follow.
In his own words –
SCUM-BAG APOSTLES (Apostle Paul)
“It seems to me that God has put us who bear his Message on stage in a theater in which no one wants to buy a ticket. We’re something everyone stands around and stares at, like an accident in the street. We’re the Messiah’s misfits. You might be sure of yourselves, but we live in the midst of frailties and uncertainties. You might be well-thought-of by others, but we’re mostly kicked around. Much of the time we don’t have enough to eat, we wear patched and threadbare clothes, we get doors slammed in our faces, and we pick up odd jobs anywhere we can to eke out a living. When they call us names, we say, “God bless you.” When they spread rumors about us, we put in a good word for them. We’re treated like garbage, potato peelings from the culture’s kitchen. And it’s not getting any better.” 1 COR 4:9-13
“If you only look at us, you might well miss the brightness. We carry this precious Message around in the unadorned clay pots of our ordinary lives. That’s to prevent anyone from confusing God’s incomparable power with us. As it is, there’s not much chance of that. You know for yourselves that we’re not much to look at. We’ve been surrounded and battered by troubles, but we’re not demoralized; we’re not sure what to do, but we know that God knows what to do; we’ve been spiritually terrorized, but God hasn’t left our side; we’ve been thrown down, but we haven’t broken. What they did to Jesus, they do to us—trial and torture, mockery and murder; what Jesus did among them, he does in us—he lives! Our lives are at constant risk for Jesus’ sake, which makes Jesus’ life all the more evident in us. While we’re going through the worst, you’re getting in on the best!” 2 COR 4:8-12
Still want it?
Pure Bliss. It’s His Way. It’s the Way paved with bleeding love from a rugged cross.
Spend us Jesus. We only live once. In the words of Sadhu Sundar Singh –
“It is better to burn quickly and melt many souls than to burn slowly and melt none!”
Out of our control and in His, Justin Abraham
