JESUS: Beyond the legal limits
The day you decide to actually take Jesus seriously the first challenge of this new reality that will confront you is this: that He, and all he proposes for you is beyond mortal man’s legal limits…….. for man that is born of woman, who is also flesh and blood cannot receive what he offers. Think about it for a moment.
You know just where you live. It’s probably on your driver’s license, your birth certificate, and many other documents. Besides that it is just a visceral palpable part of the knowledge base of your reality archetype. So just who is about to tell you otherwise?
That is just something we take for granted; where we live. It’s just a given. When you are away and have to come back home, you don’t stop and think deeply about where you live.
We are often given to question our spirituality, but never our humanity. Never wonder whether or not we are human. We are human. It’s just that simple. What else could we be. That’s simply what we flat-out know. That’s all everybody knows. No body ever sit around wondering whether or not we are human. That is something we all know. To even raise the question excites suspicion about the questioner’s sanity. You just want to draw back and allow a good few paces between you and him.
You are sure that you are human and that and that’s a settled matter. Well that fact may prove to be problematic where the issue of reconciling your human form with the reality of Jesus, if that is of particular importance for you. The problem is that flesh and blood humans would quickly and lethally overdose on the potency of who Jesus is and what he offers us. The effect would be like putting new wine into old wine skins.
