A New Age

When you get down to it, this new AGE, this new ERA of Jesus, an era that’s not too unlike the era of Abraham, it’s a lot more freeing than the era of the law. It really is. But it also places a TON more responsibility upon us all. Remember when I said that it was sad that people chose against God? I bet you lament that choice of Adam and Eve just about every day. But, here’s the thing: God has been giving us a chance to re-make that decision ever since. That’s what the Bible is about.

Striving with God

And this long-term struggle, this struggle every single day to get our will in line with God’s will, the struggle every day against God’s desires but also the struggle to get BACK to God’s desires, y’all THAT is what the Bible is all about. That’s what following Jesus is all about. Our lives are about a transformation process being worked by God but resisted by us. We, people, spend much of our lives seeking our own desires and our own way. Yet somehow, through encounters with God …God tries to transform us into something more than what WE desire, God tries to transform us into what God made us for, into what God desires for us. It’s the transformation of resurrection, the transformation of the new life God offers out of the old life we have so long pursued.

God IS calling you to live differently so that everyone who hears – everyone who pays attention to how God is working through you – will laugh WITH you, will laugh with you a laughter of joy and goodness. All you have to do is choose to go along with God’s plan.
