THE SABBATH WAS MADE FOR MAN, NOT MAN FOR THE SABBATH


Why is it that within the realm of religious thinking people gravitate to and then fight to defend a belief system that leads them to believe that God is more interested in the enforcement of rules over, being for people and their redemption? Jesus being the exact representation of the Father certainly didn't follow that pattern. But then isn't that the point...there is no pattern.


There is a Father, Son, and Spirit that are working together within the uniqueness of each and every person, in each and every unique situation to do what they have set out to do. Find that which was lost and bring them back home. It's such a beautiful thing.

I ask myself the same thing, but then I go looking for patterns and formulas in the next breath. As you have so eloquently stated before, those systems and patterns give us the illusion of safety.

Above all else, we want to preserve ourselves. Death of the self does not feel safe.

Let us embrace the beautiful, mysterious, unsafe workings of Father, Son and Spirit!

Your comment deserved a post of it's own.
