The Utopian Bumper Sticker
What if there was never grace? What if this all wasn't real? What if God doesn't love us? What if faith was just a Utopian bumper sticker, waiting for someone to believe in it? What if evil was the only reality?
Sometimes, the way we live our life would make others and ourselves (subconsciously) seem so. We try so hard to talk about believing in God, that we fail to believe in God. Sometimes we speak of the evil all around us (like Iraq;not too trivialize the cost at all) as if that is all there is in the world today. We talk about faith as if it was a favorite past-time of a child we once knew (our child-like selves). We treat grace as if it is only to be given to the pious christian who thinks they have all together. We complain so much, I wonder if we truly believe God can pull us out of the miry clay. We go to church because it is something we think that will make us stronger, not because we want to grow close to God. We go to church because we think that is what makes a christian, when, what makes a christian is God himself. Not what we do, but, what he has already done through Jesus and continues to do with his arms wide open. He loves us, do we truly love him? If we do, we must believe. Just like Jesus says in Mark: "Do Not Be Afraid, Just believe." Will you believe with me?
