“Being Born Anew”

April 23/ Acts 5:27-33; Jn. 3:31-36

If Jesus had came to preach a “new order”; to bring a new government, then we would probably know very little of him, for he would have been a part of the past, but to preach “repentance,  remission of sins” scared the hell out of the powers that be. In other words he sought to have people change their lives, to look at life differently, to be differently. Today we are struggling with people on the street, with housing them, with providing for them, but suppose in the process we preached a new “reign of God”, in a reign in which every one would share, in which power would be irrelevant then the world would be changed. All would be housed, fed, and who knows about the internal lives of people–how many would find it not necessary to use drugs, but enjoy life without them.  To proclaim a new life in which we treat people as equals with respects scares the hell out of the world, for people can not be greedy, and will lose some of their material goods–but oh the benefits. This is what it means to be “born a new”. Eternity is now, in the present!

Spent day cooking, served meal.  Ken and Kyle helped, and being exhausted I went to bed early. Deo Gratis! Thanks be to God!
