Starting with the seven days of creation, Danielle considers how God's world resembles A Beautiful Mess - vibrant, full of colour and pulsating with life, but not about propositions.
The Christian life is organic, not prescribed. Philippians Even Paul admonishing two women of their need to get along!
How ironic is that? You see, God knew that His beloved Church would not be perfect and, thus, would be full of problems and would have to have instruction on how to get along with each other! So how should we view one another, who are a part of this beautiful mess? I love what the Apostle Paul declares in 2 Corinthians chapter 5 where he talks about how the believer is a new creation in Christ.
It is not about who they are in the flesh, or what they have done, or how flawed they may be. What mattered to Paul was whether they were in Christ or not in Christ. If they were in Christ, they are a new creation and Paul was determined to see people for who they were in Christ and not for who they were in the flesh. It is easy, when we look at our flesh, to see the flaws because we all have them.
But we must learn how to focus on who we are becoming in Jesus. If we can learn to see those things in one another that remind us of Jesus and encourage those things, I think we will be inspiring each other to continue to grow in our relationship with Christ and our desire to be like Him. I want to challenge you to give thanks and then pray for their flaws rather than becoming frustrated by their flesh.
