Each day in the adventure of Christ our life is a new opportunity, a new door of possibility. Every day presents a new opportunity to throw off a piece of humbug and embrace some new aspect of life itself.
Why does what starts in the Spirit fade out and dissipate? Why does what began with great promise become dormant?
Walking and walking but not getting ahead.
Megan saw Jesus sitting under a tree. She sauntered over to Him and said, 'Lord, we've had the Holy Spirit. But we're still going round and round in circles about our mulberry bush. Why? Jesus smiled and replied, ' In Holy Spirit alone, you have no root. No one does. You are rooted in life when you are rooted in Me.'
I will make all things new.
Looking puzzled Megan asked, 'Aren't we rooted in you because we are Christians? 'Possibly,' replied Jesus. 'But I am not a religion.' I am your means of joining you to the life-hub of the universe. The writer of Hebrews calls this new kind of joining the new covenant. 'So what's new about this new covenant?' replied Megan.
