Then Thomas (also known as Didymus) said to the rest of the disciples, “Let us also go, that we may die with Him.” (John 11v16 NIV)
They only saw the world through their own eyes.
Influenced by what they saw, heard and felt.
That is normal but when you meet Jesus everything changes.
What used to make sense doesn’t any more.
What seemed mysterious suddenly makes sense.
This is the work of the Holy Spirit revealing the Kingdom of God to you.
He is revealing reality to you.
A greater reality.
It is like waking up from a dream.
A little disorientating at first.
But there is an invitation to explore.
An opportunity to know and understand more.
Don’t shut this down and walk away.
Enter in and enjoy all the benefits of His kingdom.
There is no better place, no matter what people think or tell you.
In Jesus there is hope and there is a real future.
You just need to let go to embrace that reality.
His reality sees death so differently.
