Creating a Learning Network for Kingdom Builders!

Today, I am reminded of how easy it is to go from day to day and be numb to everything around us. Sometimes, numb to what is going on inside us. It is easier to just shut down emotionally, and go through the motions, than it is to connect with what is happening in our 'reality'.

Some would have us believe that our 'reality' is relative, or how it relates to our core beliefs and/or by the standards set by our society or individuals or the paradigms by which we, as a society, or, how we, as an individuals, govern our lives. By one or the other of these measures, we interpret our 'reality'.

In other words, we can 'write our own reality' because; there are no absolutes; if it feels good, do it; if it doesn't hurt anyone, do it; there is no God, do it; everyone is doing it; there are no consequences, do it!
Even in the Church, we are guilty of these same kinds of interpretations. This ought not to be so.

The truth is, there are absolutes that govern our life here on earth, beginning with: there is a God! Yes, He is loving but His justice is as real as His love. We choose to hide from His justice behind His love so that we do not have to experience guilt and can continue to satisfy our own lusts, of which there are many. It's easier to go with the flow than to flow with the Truth, which has been placed in all our hearts from conception.

The Truth died and was resurrected, full of all power and all glory, over two thousand years ago, so that we might have life and have it more abundantly. Not to squander it upon ourselves, but to let the Truth live through us.

We need to consider how we interpret our 'reality'. God has placed Eternity in the heart of every man/woman, whether we accept that or not is irrelevant. What His Word says is relevant and what His Word says is the guideline for being 'real'; the Word is how we define our own 'reality'.

We do not get several shots at this life. This is it. Define your 'reality' by the Word of God and make this life count for Him.

"You draw near to Me with your mouth, and honor Me with your lips, but your heart is far from me. (Matthew 15:8)

Where is your heart?
