Think on this…

I found this at Kingdom Grace (I love her blog) and thought it was one of the most beautiful things I’ve read in a while.  Here’s hoping it is a blessing and inspiration to you as well.  (It was written by Baxter Kruger)

As the light of Jesus shines into our darkness, we will not be yearning to escape the ordinary, we will be stunned and full of wonder at the ordinary presence of the blessed Trinity in our humanity.

Heaven is not a bodiless state in an invisible place. Heaven is the life of the Father, Son and Spirit coming to full and abiding expression in our human existence, and the earth and the cosmos are filled with the life and love and fellowship of the blessed Trinity.

Meantime we grieve over the self-centeredness, over the lust and greed, the social and racial, environmental and political and religious injustices that run wild around us, wreaking such havoc in our lives.

And we fast and pray for the Holy Spirit to reveal the truth to us in our darkness.

We pray for people to be given eyes to see and that the way things are in Jesus Christ would indeed emerge more and more in our human existence.

    i LOVED this as a description of what heaven is AND is NOT: ‘Heaven is not a bodiless state in an invisible place. Heaven is the life of the Father, Son and Spirit coming to full and abiding expression in our human existence, and the earth and the cosmos are filled with the life and love and fellowship of the blessed Trinity.’ That will rattle some of your readers, Grace, for sure!

    This is a lovely post and thank you so very much for sharing it!

      Adele – I LOVED THAT TOO! And yes, I thought the same as you…that some will be uncomfortable with that description of heaven. But, it was so beautiful and it moved my soul in such a way that I just had to post it.
