This mystery has been kept in the dark for a long time, but now it’s out in the open. God wanted everyone, not just Jews, to know this rich and glorious secret inside and out, regardless of their background, regardless of their religious standing. The mystery in a nutshell is just this: Christ is in you, so therefore you can look forward to sharing in God’s glory. It’s that simple. That is the substance of our Message. We preach Christ, warning people not to add to the Message. We teach in a spirit of profound common sense so that we can bring each person to maturity. To be mature is to be basic. Christ! No more, no less. That’s what I’m working so hard at day after day, year after year, doing my best with the energy God so generously gives me.
~ Colossians 1:27-28
May the holes in your net be no larger than the fish in it.
I have been the other half of a controversial pairing. Just walking down the street was a risk. I loved the responses in this video of those who recognized the history of the three faiths. The response of the uneducated was deplorable. There is a real life community in Israel where Jews and Muslims send their children to learn to grow in peace. The fish they catch can teach the other fish.
Made me look at the holes in my own net.
Lord, Help us to keep our hearts open, on minds staid upon you, our eyes, yours.
Because of Him,
