the choice before us today is the same choice from time immemorial obey, or disobey the father's will has always been for us to enjoy to prosper in His own nature to love our lives for His abundant goodness to be blessed because of whose we are but we disobey we were made to be part of the true vine (we have always been cherished children) but we choose to pluck ourselves from the Father's grace throw ourselves to the ground where we turn to dirt like so many fallen leaves still He remembers us the Son of the Most High the man after the Lord's own heart brought a simple message -- be reconciled by your obedience to believe is to obey the same today as it was at the beginning we fear that eden has changed it looks like a hostile concrete jungle (and it is) the serpent has multiplied and prospered in the disobedient children of men obedience looks like a cross but there is joy in that suffering (there is purpose and promise) and layered in the message of Christ is a disclosure -- subtly revealed in the prayers of our Lord that our deep desire (the one that drove us out of the garden) (to be as the Lord in our being) (the desire so strong that we are easily deceived) is fulfilled not by our knowledge but by our obedience not by our striving but by our inheritance the lie that in our striving we will become like the eternal King is defeated in the cross Jesus showed us the futility of our ways He showed us that our lives in the world were worth nothing but that our life with Him was worth everything that physical death was not only inevitable but preferable to the separation of sin (that we already experience) let's discover life together in obedience i am willing to let my God fill in the blanks for he covers me in His righteousness He is worthy of all praise from His heart springs all goodness He lays to waste all deceit His truth is glorious Holy, Holy, Holy is His Name
