This stuff is not new, God is faithful!

It isn’t an accident than Christ is a second Adam to the world. With Zion as the Church and his bride, earthly redemption echoes creation. If you lay a cornerstone as Adam, raised with the breath of life from the dust, and you pull his rib out to make Eve, what do you get under redemption? You get the Body of Christ here on earth, the Church. You get women. You get multiplication of grace. And a 360° revelation of who God is, because he returns us to the place and Eden he started with. If you want consistency, look to God. He does this stuff for a reason.

If angels are God’s servants who carry out work here in the spirit realm, then that’s kind of like both God’s servants and coworkers. If humans were designed to be similar to his family, with Christ you get this image of a Savior laying down what is necessary to build a stronger family, including his life. No more will Eve long for the affection of her husband, in the grace we recieve in God. The striving is simply unnecessary.

As children of God, we are as those who were joyously expected and planned for. Even if we don’t feel like it, we have the opportunity to be reaping the benefits of a grace only the prophets knew intimately. Free and accessible, constantly available, free in Christ’s name. And yet again, the goodness of God remains the same. We take being born post-Pentecost for granted, but in the Holy Spirit and Christ Jesus, God’s promises are absolutely fulfilled. We are walking into a future that need not hold death as we have known it as we remain outside of accepting grace. In Christ, not even death is retained.

Abundance is sought and found full-heartedly in the name of Jesus. If you cling to nothing else in life, cling to the one who is consistent and has history as his qualification to save. Our God is more than capable. In any trial, you can lift your burdens up and recieve healing from the one whose promises were going to be fufilled from the beginning.

I am a second-grade teacher and pastor-to-be who loves people. I spend my weekends with friends or wandering the museums of DC alone and with a journal, trying to put words on the places of the soul that still feel wordless. I spent most of my days at school trying to learn patience through my students and running on sheer nerdy passion. I follow Jesus Christ, and savor that as my most important identity--that I am a child of God, as are infinite others, regardless of their other identities. Christ is my one thing.
