What if?

July 10, 2008

What if the kingdom of heaven isn’t an upside down world, despite all its peacemaking and mercy and servanthood?  What if, instead, the world as we know it is upside down and the coming kingdom is right side up?

What if “I’m only human” should be applied to the godward parts of our lives rather than the sinful parts?  After all, wasn’t Jesus the true man?

What if miracles should be wondered at less as the suspension of what seems natural than as the restoration of what is meant to be natural?

What if Jesus passed through walls in his resurrection body, not because there is something less real about his body than ours, but more real?  That is, what if our fallen world is more shadowy than we realize?
