He Lives!

“For the grace of God that brings salvation has appeared to all men” (Titus 2:11, KJ 2000).

He Lives!The true universality of the story of Jesus is borne out by its inner truth and archetypical significance.  Indeed, even the most skeptical among us can confidently proclaim the good news that He lives!   For there is a sense in which the gospel is true even if Jesus of Nazareth had never existed. That is— just as 2 + 2 = 4, whether or not we ever see it WRIT LARGE, so to speak —there is a sense in which it can be said at all times and in all places that:

“[Christ] was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the children of God, even to them that believe on his name: Who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God” (John 1:10-13).

I AmThe passion of Jesus, as represented in the New Testament, is this universal truth WRIT LARGE.  And while any particular historical or theological detail may be open for debate, it is the purpose and function of the written word to point to the living Word.  And, as we have shown elsewhere, our point of contact with the living Word is the “I Am” presence within us— that Divine presence which is truly universal the light that lights everyone who comes into the world (John 1:2, 9).  He Lives!

    I like how you make the connections between the new message and the older messages when you send these out. In this case, the one I clicked on was from last August. it was good to go back to that. Thanks.

    Very wise quote by Blaise Pascal, indeed once you look for God, you see and feel his/ her presence in everything, even when things in life don’t appear to go our way there is something reassuring about this presence that is bigger than what we can ever hope to be ourselves
