The gold of the gospel is that it reigns indefinitely on all systems of oppression.
He takes a consensual defeat and knows only victory. He refuses despair by choosing to believe in good beyond death. Indeed, belief transcends any notice of doubt. How can this make sense?
The Gospel has a presence on this subject that turns the very moment of total desperation into a hope that successful people will never understand, let alone experience.
It's the style of the weak to know something in their break that strong people have no idea.
Indeed, a weak person, having experienced the power of vulnerability, will never want to be strong again.
They are shown an eternal power that destroys all human power, leaving it hopelessly without hope of response. And only when there is no human power to shoot. Yes, the background scene is the starting point of the vulnerability.
Vulnerability only works when we are too weak for anything else.
We must be crumbled to justify and participate.
This gold of the Gospel is so powerful that we only need to experience it once, and we are always won over to its universal and pressing truth. And as we embody this truth, we are destined to experience it more and more.
This truth is staggering: suddenly, out of the muzzle of death, as ashes completely smother all living hopes, there is an uprising that goes beyond the threshold of death and blows a life that one has never known before; a life that leaves the old experience of life & # 39; in his wake.
The resurrection converts darkness into light, day of night.
And all this from a fatigue designed to crush us completely.
What differentiates two opposite forms of despair? He who offers irrepressible hope of desperation that tumbles, bargains, traumatizes? We are pushed for the purpose of research that absolutely can not give up, even if it does so momentarily. The other can not exceed the magnitude of all this. And yet, the magnitude takes us deep enough to make us extremely weak.
It's the difference as I see it. A desperation reflects the logic of reality and is taken in a vision of a different reality sometime. He is willing to be patient, to bear suffering well and sometimes not so well, to suffer indignity after humiliation, to have hopes continually disappointed. He does it because there is no logic in staying in despair. He realizes that the hope of a fantasy is better than the hellish despair of the present. The other despair can not exceed the present reality and can not see beyond the relief that it happens. He can not see value in obedience as a power to attract good. He can not stand the state of pain that is imposed on him.
This other despair is absurd from the other side.
Desperation has nothing to do with hope.
The hope is worth the cost.
The hope is worth losing the gift for. It is worth the hope of the blind minds. It is worth continuing. And it's only because of the weakness that we are willing to be forced to make a choice. But blessed is the position and the choice, to remain weak, to accept it, to rally to weakness in a sovereign vulnerability that resists denial, anger and negotiation.
What I am talking about here is a real possession of the regenerated person. Indeed, it is the fruit of regeneration.
But regeneration has just let us fall honestly into the hands of God; by refusing to rely on some semblance of our human strength.
The less we must try to help God help us,
the more we give up trying to overcome our own strengths.
And if we do not offer any resistance in our despair, but only hope in God,
then we will discover from there, God can do all that we need to do to Him.
