Before time began Grace was in the wings, such is the Love of God that there was preparation for a wrong choice. God was prepared for the entrance of sin into this good world and redemption was in the wings. This is a continuation of our mini series in the book of Origins (Genesis) about our Dignity, Identity & Purpose.
There is a scene from one of my cult favorite movies Thunderheart, where Grandpa Sam tells agent Ray Levoi that he is far from his true self and his Origins. I feel this way as a follower of Jesus, so far removed from the simplicity of the message He taught and walked some 2000 years ago. I now realize there is to much baggage in this thing we call Christianity, to walk and live as Jesus lived and so I must go back to my spiritual roots as well. It is time to let it all go except for the Love and it’s message of peace and reconciliation to my weary soul as well as the souls around me. So I will hold on as tightly as I can to this Jesus whom I love and follow, leaving me very little energy to hold on the rest of the stuff.
