The Man from Libya

Image
I speak from experience, no onepurposely sets out to fall, stumble or fail. Even Jesus didn't carry the cross, alone. [Insert a deep breath here - sigh]. What makes us think we can schlep through life by ourselves? We need brothers & sisters like Simon of Cyrene, who made one brief yet significant appearance in human history - he came to help. Others could have done it, help carry Christ's cross. I suspect there were those present on that Good Friday, who had pity, voiced compassion, spoke words of mercy, but only Simon, father of Rufus, accepted being pressed into duty. It speaks volumes to the character of the man from modern day Libya. He was willing to get his hands dirty, risk injury and ridicule and be obvious.Simon of Cyrene represents each and one of us, with whom Jesus shares His work and with whom Jesus becomes our partner in life’s sorrows and victories.How willing are you to accept being pressed into duty?   #MetroLifeChurch#MinMChurch

A Disturbing Graphic

Image
Rude. Insensitive. Irreverent. Sacrilegious, indeed, but why?Because the graphic gets to a deep seeded truth that resides in many of us - Jesus on the cross has become mostly a mascot for our ideology, a logo for show. Increasingly, He’s not seen as Our Great High Priest,I Am, The Lamb of God, The Way. Maybe keeping Him segregated, isolated, as an iconic good-luck piece absolves us from any real action, let alone any spiritual, humanistic or moral change. Maybe it's easier for us, to lower God to the shallowness of our well managed, often strained Americanized theology, than it is to moved into benevolence, empathy and compassion.

Spiritual Schizophrenia

Image
Mytheology is delusional, unbalanced at best, especially when I want God to love me, but I also want Him to demonstrate my anger by taking down the people I don't like or agree with. My neurosis continues when I want God to love me unconditionally, but show His righteous indignation at those who are mean-spirited, ignorant people, in my opinion. I want God to be boiling over in rage towards "sinners," myself excluded. Of course, I’m continually reminded the by the Word, the God I worship came not to condemn but to save sinners of which I am one. God help me in my double-mindedness…
