Perfect Timing, pt.3Posted: December 17, 2008
The recent stream of conciousness preachiness continues and concludes with this post , and the assertion that the timing of revelation is miraculous.The power of a lie is such that we will spend our lives, seemingly in vain, with the weight of it. Then the lie is exposed and it becomes nothing, despite years of life lived convinced of its truthiness. But when we move on from it we are strong- made new because of it. The lie can only be such a tool in the hand of God.
But for revelation, there needs to be something covered first. For renewal to be worth something, there has to be something which has grown old.
Revelation- the unveiling of the previously covered. I am revealed in layers. Exposed and shown for who i am. Christ is also revealed- to the world, to the individual. Lies we believe about ourselves, about Christ, shape us in confounding and, retrospectively, unimaginably lovely ways.
