Life Displacing Death
Without continued revelation, we will busy ourselves much like a person trying to tear from a tree in the winter, those stubborn fall leaves that refuse to fall to the ground like all of the others.
Rather than simply waiting for the appropriate season of Spring to be set into motion, and as the sap-life of the tree begins once again to flow more rapidly, it easily pushes out/off those dead leaves, replacing them with a new and living foliage.
Isn’t it ludicrous trying to assist our Father in trying to do a similar but inane task, trying to get rid of the death remnants within our flesh by mechanical spiritual parlor finagling?
His Life in us as us, is most adequate in displacing the fig leaves we still hide beneath with such effortless unforced rhythms of grace.
