Caterpillars and Butterflies

The truth of Christ is unchanging.

Yet the face of our faith in Him will transform into various expressions.

His transforming power continues to shape and mold who we are and who we are becoming.

Patience in the transformation process is key to revival and resurrection power being made tangible on this life.

I confess.

I hang out with sinners.

Jesus did too.

His key to hanging out with sinners was that he didn't see them as sinners.

We are all caterpillars in a cocoon being transformed into butterflies.

I believe Jesus sees the butterflies and has his eyes on the caterpillars.

He loves them both.

He has a plan for them all.

Embrace the process.

Celebrate the face and it's various expressions.

Enjoy the view.

People of Faith

People_of_Faith_BP_Image_1024x1024.jpg

Throughout history it's been people of faith who have;

Sustained hope in trying times

Maintained joy in spite of war

Served the world in crisis and poverty

How then shall we respond to what sits in front of us, what lies before us and heal what is behind us?

Will we be heroes or villains?

Will we cater to fear or celebrate love?

Strength and courage are the markers of the faithful.

Ingenuity, innovation and creativity are called upon in times such as these.

Consistency and stability are staples in the cabinets of the faithful.

Morale and encouragement are the sustenance of holy.

Covenant and promise are the inheritance of the saints.

Glory and majesty are the essence and persona of the royal sons and daughters.

What shall we display for the whole world to marvel when the future looks bleak?

We will not sink to levels beneath us.

We will not conform to the status quo.

We will rise.
