1 Peter 1:17-19

Lamb_of_God_smReverence

Now if you invoke as father him who judges partially according to each one’s works, conduct yourselves with reverence during the tome of your sojourning, realizing that you were ransomed from your futile conduct, handed on by your ancestors, not with perishable things like silver or gold but with the precious blood of Christ as of a spotless unblemished lamb.

The Jewish symbol of life is the blood of the spotless lamb.  This symbol becomes reality when Christ dies so that each of us might live.

God says: I can see why you do not understand the world of inversion in which I operate. You are often confused when Jesus tells you that you must die in order that you might live. But look at the world around you. As Jesus says: a grain of wheat must fall to the ground and split open. It must die from its present state in order that it produce many more grains. In this way the grain of wheat you see as perishing is, in fact, becoming immortal. It never dies because for generations its offspring live. Just so is it with each of you. Like the grain of wheat that gives over to the potential I have placed within, so too do you live forever when you follow your call and enter into the potential state for which I created you. When this becomes your reality . . . suddenly the world of inversion is the only world that makes sense. This is why Jesus tells you: “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit”.  John 12:24

It is not necessary for us to bear physical children in order to enter into this world that Jesus describes; rather, each small and tender act we offer up to God is a small child of love to which we give birth. Just so does Christ offer himself to us each day as the innocent lamb. Just so do we realize our true inheritance in Christ rather than in gold and silver that perishes. Just so do we revere our God by offering reverence to God and to one another in our small and big acts of inversion.

Tomorrow, mutual love . . .
