by If - Then
This morning, for the umpteenth time, I suggested to Jesus that He make his return. “Come on, haven’t we waited long enough?” “Hasn’t there been enough sorrow and grief?”|
His answer - “I’m not done with my story.” “History” is HIS-STORY – nothing more, nothing less.
It occurs to me that all His-Story is already written. And, we already know, at least the major points. We only walk as He walked. The story and the path are already in the Book.
Then I thought about the “if-then” propositions. Christianity, as a religion, is full of “if you do this, then that will happen.” It troubles me a bit that occasionally even Jesus mentioned an “if-then”.
But, the greatest and highest “IF-THEN” ever is “And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.” (John 12.32) And it is true. He has been lifted up. He now and always has, drawn ALL to Himself. What do we do? Just know it is true. Just walk in that truth – and be bold in that truth.
