I come alive when I’m connected to Reality, to the gravity of what really matters — when I’m caught up in the Glory for which my spirit and flesh were formed. And I love that God has tucked so much of His glory into the nooks and crannies of this planet. Some days I need to stop, exhale, and open my eyes to reality as it is. His reality. The reality.
Life in Christ is worth mulling over… it’s worth gazing at long and hard; it’s worth thrilling over; it’s worth our obsession and delight and grit and passion.
So for today, this is enough — indeed, this is everything… “The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together. And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.” Colossians 1:15-20
What a magnificent, tender, explosive, and singularly extraordinary thing that is.
Take a moment or two today and allow the wonder to overtake you. Our reality in Christ — with Christ — is mind-blowing.
