THE WAY OF LIFE

Today’s readings are Job 37 – 38 and I Corinthians 12.  We are reading from the New Living Translation.

The way of life – have you discovered the way of life?  The Body of Christ, in all it’s rich variety, is made for life .  So have you found the way of life?  What is the way of life?  I Corinthians 12: 6 tells us very plainly:

God works in different ways, but it is the same God who does the work in all of us.

God IN US – in all of us.  The way of life is God expressing himself in us.  It is God in the hand, in the eye, in the ear, in the man, in the woman, in the boy, in the girl.  It is God in me, and God in you. The way of Life is God expressing himself, through your uniquely, created, and gifted self.

Do you have peace with who you are?  Do you have patience with where you are?  Are you confident with yourself, or are you confident with what God has asked of you?  To the extent that you realize that God is at work in you – that will be the extent that you discover and live in the way of Life.  There is another way of living that is not life.  And that, of course, is to deny, or to fail to recognize and welcome into our body the life that is offered to us in Christ.  We fail to surrender to His life and instead demand our own.

But when we do live the way of Life, God uses the unique ways that he has created and gifted us in service to his kingdom and in expressions of love towards one another.  He enables us to help others find the way of Life, and to waken to the reality of Christ in them.  Paul wants to show us the way of life.

 

But now let me show you a way of life that is best of all.(I Cor 12:31 NLT)

 Life at its best is life with God – in us – doing the work in and through us.

Live in the reality of Christ in You, understanding that it is God doing the work in and through you as you surrender to his life, not demanding your own.
