So here’s a secret treasure map. X marks the spot: you.
God is as close as your breath, as at home within you as your very own voice. The word for this “within-ness” is called “the Christ,” authorized heir of God’s whole inheritance.
This Christ isn’t archeology or history. This Christ is so much vaster than a first century healer or teacher. This mystery shows up in all power, high and low, across time and geography. It always shows up in one way: the world transformed through redemptive suffering.
God doesn’t hold energy. The Christ mystery transforms it. And somehow, thanks to Jesus, you and I are learning a shortcut to becoming that same transforming energy.
So embodiers of Christ, don’t fall for all the other secret handshakes or gouged prices from the black market of power. You and all things are where the treasure is hidden.
- When was a time that you experienced God as close as your breath?
- What do you think it means that “you and all things are where the treasure is hidden?”
