Jesus is the cosmic glue that holds the universe together at any given moment, both macrocosmic and microcosmic, just ask the apostle Paul (Colossians 1 v. 17) So why then are our lesser respective worlds held together by duct tape, super glue, paper clips, rubber bands, and scotch tape while being lubricated by WD 40? Hey, America and my fence may be held together by duct tape but didn't God inspire the invention of duct tape and these other wonders I've mentioned? Maybe it's part of our so imperfect personation of the Real Holder-together of all things and people and marriages and companies and institutions etc. that we are such perpetual patcher-upers. But meanwhile the new creation that needs no patching up is gaining and growing. (the pain without gain is the most painful) Also in Colosians we're told: "Put on the new creature which by constant renewal in likeness of its Creator leads to (an ever) fuller knowledge of God. (Col 3 v. 10-Phillips translation) Wow! Being CONSTANTLY renewed in His likeness, like being constantly refilled with the Spirit, leading to fuller and fuller knowing of Him moment by moment to fit each new situation or circunstance, or relation or condition. To get ahold of the magnitude of this I say, 'I'm being renewed this moment in being like You and in knowing You, so that I know you better than I did 5 minutes ago! Through you I'm unfolding newly created, freshly minted manifestations of all-purpose love all the time!
