personhood

Tuesday October 6th, Hebrews 1:  1In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways, 2but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son,  When God speaks through his son, he speaks in the work of love and acceptance.  How often we seek out own way of rejection and judgment by picking a quote from here and a quote from there to justify our personal prejudice.  But in Jesus’ world we have demonstrations of divorce which points to the hardness of hearts and the recognition of the personhood of both men and women.  We have examples of God’s love that takes small children, not the cherub faces depicted in most church art, but small, smelly, dirty, rejected and powerless children, and tells us to become like one of these.  Identify with these small, expendable, rejected and powerless ones, and then you will “get” the kingdom of God.  It is not about power, greatness, CEO salaries or golden parachutes, it is about love, acceptance and caring for the least, lost and lonely, those most often rejected by society.  In these last days we have the words and examples of Jesus.  In the words of God on the mountain of transfiguration, “Listen to Him!!!!”
