So, it’s been a little while since I posted something here on the blog. Shame on me, I know. I have disappointed the plethora of people that read this (hey Mom and Dad), and that is simply unacceptable.
A lot has happened since my last post:
- I got married! (yay!)
- I wrote some songs (again, yay!)
- I received graceful love from God (ok, continue the yay’s)
- Perhaps most importantly, I’ve grown as a person.
There’s something sobering about entering into a marriage commitment, more accurately a covenant, before God and man to another human being. It’s a daily, powerful reminder to me every time I look down at the metal band on my hand. I meant the words I said, and I mean them every bit the same today as well. Still, it’s a sobering realization to enter into a commitment of such magnitude!
So, the question begs to be asked… Why don’t we view our faith through that lens? I know I’m guilty of belittling the covenant I made with God when I accepted the blood of Christ to atone for my sin, and to redeem me from my fallen state.
Today, I challenge you (and me) to think about what lens you view your world through. Does the magnitude of your relationship with Christ change how you view life? To every believer who claims Christ, do the implications of Christ crucified beckon you to live life differently? Are you so rooted in the motions of “doing” daily life that you’ve forgotten what you meant when you called Him “Lord”? Did you ever really understand what all that meant?
The questions are begging to be asked, and eternity beckons an answer. May we be found looking through the right lens, lest we miss out on all He has for our lives!
