Today’s blog is dedicated to Martin Luther King, Jr.
“Never again will I curse the ground…nor destroy every living creature.” Even God had a turning point. Jesus coming into the world was another drastic decision on the part of God to choose life rather than destruction, because the law given to protect and keep had instead become a burden to his own chosen people. Destruction wasn’t going to solve the problem, because humankind would only be born in to the same physical world. Thus humankind being created in the image of God had to make the conscious decision to be renewed (born again) in Spirit, which involves a complete change in the heart and mind with respect to our relationship with God. With Christ as our example in human form we now by his life, have an opportunity to make that change and share in his glory. The Epiphany (manifestation of Christ to the gentiles) is our drastic, and all too certain, turning point. Through Christ (not money, fame, nor group) everyone has the opportunity to make the conscious decision to seek and follow the God within. No one knew this better that Martin Luther King.
