Paul rebuked the church for walking like mere men. The church - The hands & feet of Christ in the earth - The ones in whom His Spirit dwells - The ones who can at will partake of His divine nature - The ones who, though imperfect, are given authority, inheritance, & commandment to manifest the kingdom - The ones whom God endowed with the ability to love others as He does - The ones He's called as His agents to help change the world & broadcast the God-Be-Good-paradigm - The ones He allows to come into His very own presence, to touch & know His heart - The ones He pursues to discover Himself to & companion all their days - The ones whom He allows to taste of the powers of the age to come - The ones who He commissions to go & heal the sick, serve the poor, cleanse the dirty, make demons tremble, cry for justice, free the bound, bind the broken, and even in our brokenness prevail against Hell's gates - Yes, even in our imperfectedness... We to whom Jesus said "You are the light of the world - shine". Paul rebuked the church for walking like mere men, as if by living with eyes fixed on the toys & trials of ordinary, they had forgotten the extrodinaryness of the thing they were second-born into. Don't forget. You are no mere men. Don't forget. No merely good & moral men are you. Don't forget. You are this God's passion & empowered to be this world's light. Don't forget. Whether we ever embrace this truth & begin fulfilling it or not... We are no mere men. Alongside the commonplace pristine minute by minute recollections of our failures & frailties, we must begin to, with equal & then greater attentiveness, remember this... We objects of God's passion & purpose.... we are no mere men.
