CONSISTENT INCONSISTENCIES

Strengthen yourselves so that you will live here on earth doing what God wants.  1 Peter 4:2

  I suspect the most consistent thing about life has to be its inconsistency…

    It’s this eerie inconsistency that keeps all of us, to one degree or another, living our lives on the edge of our chairs.

    Yet, it was in this inconsistency that God had his finest hour.  Never did the obscene come so close to the holy as it did on Calvary.  Never did the good in the world so intertwine with the bad as it did on the cross…

    God on a cross.  Humanity at its worst.  Divinity at its best…

    God is not stumped by an evil world.  He doesn’t gasp in amazement at the depth of our faith or the depth of our failures.  He knows the condition of the world…and loves it just the same.  For just when we find a place where God would never be (like on a cross), we look again and there he is, in the flesh.
