I just came in from a walk outside
and picked a half dozen wildflowers to take home. I couldn't
pass them up. I was thinking about what Jesus said, "If God
clothes the grass with glory greater than Solomon's,
will He not also do the same for you?"
The beauty in nature and the
abundance and variety of life all around is beyond us. It tells
us its Creator is beyond us. He's Someone higher, Someone
greater than us.
I looked closely at the little
bouquet I had in my hand and thought, Jesus had to be right. The
beauty in even a handful of wildflowers is beyond description
and these are just the blooms of blades of grass. How much more
glorious must be whatever God has prepared for us who are, as
Jesus said, of much more value to God than grass. We who are
created in His image and likeness.
But this goes beyond clothing. If God
is the source of such overwhelming glory and beauty, in not only
wildflowers but throughout all nature, what is He like who is
the source of all this glory and beauty. And it goes further
than that. If we are created to be like Him, than we are
designed to enter into the same place of glory that He lives in,
that He dwells in, that He is.
Do we believe this? In
"Falling in Love with the Prince of Life",
I explore these thoughts and ponder questions such as:
What did Jesus mean when He
commanded us to "be perfect as your Father in heaven is
What does it mean where it says,
"When the perfect comes, the partial will be done away"
What does it mean that Jesus is
coming to us as a Bridegroom searching for a bride?
We need God, but does He need us?
Who are we?
We know God dwells in eternity,
but does He dwell in the present?
Is it normal or abnormal to sin?
The Bible speaks of a second
death -- what is the first?
If Jesus died for us, why do we
Who are we?
continue through my website to explore with me these questions
and others that I address in my book and articles.
