Where God meet us

In the Christian path, just like the Buddhist one, the Jewish revelation
or the Muslim religion, has its own unique perspective.

In all paths, the transcendent is not about escape,
nor about happy endings in life, it is not about pie in the sky,
though continuation of life is part of it all.

I can only really speak about my path, as a Christian,
for while I have studied others ways, I am not part of them,
though I have learned much.

About submission to God, the importance of compassion,
how God covenants with us, and the fire of purifying love
stronger than death.

Christ for the Christian is the revelation, the showing to the world the Father,
of which he is One and equal with, the Sprit being the love which unites,
also equal with the Father and the Son.

The trinity is about God being relationship, an eternal giving of love from one to another,
Jesus inviting and bringing us into this dance of eternity, of oneness, union,
love given and returned, which is the longing of human hearts, the healing of love.

Yet God meets us in our pain, suffering and failures, becoming flesh ensured that reality,
showing that God is with us, travels with us, and the mystery still remains,
but it is lived in faith that none are alone.

Our life was taken on by Christ Jesus, our death was his, pain that we carried
he embraced, stretched out he showed us love, forgiveness of enemies,
the last ounce of blood shed.

He was pounded, innocence incarnate, he failed, died an ignoble death,
buried and his followers fled, his chosen ones lost all hope.

Christ asked the chalice to be removed, it was not, and he continued
and in obedience overcame death, hell, and sin, for all of us.  
Grace is not earned, we can’t, it is pure gift given to all,
and each will have his Emmaus experience as Paul did,
to either say “yes your will be done”, or Jesus will say to those who reject,
“your will be done”.

In the end, I am still only at the beginning of understanding and will never
get to the end of this journey…..thanks be to God.

  • It seems so important now but you will get over.

I like the recognition of how others face the same struggles as we do regardless of religion or lack of it because even if not directly mentioned this in part is a dialogue between belief and nonbelief.

What is the value in belief? Where will it take us? Why should I believe?

This begins with two voices then turns into the one voice about the One. Always recognizing that our struggles were carried by Christ on the Cross, it was His way of understanding humanity, in turn focusing on the struggle Christ Himself had on the Cross is one way we as humans can transcend our own limited view and begin to empathize with the rest of humanity.

Thus for me this piece begins and ends on the same note, empathy for all humanity, this is what Christ was doing on the Cross and when we focus on that by proxy we also focus on all of humanity.

The most important part of all this for me is an unrelated thought: We are not allowed to give up if we are destined to overcome.
