We like the familiar by thinking it's 'all there is.' God is the Creator, exploding with imagination and bursting with plans, unexpected and beyond our dreams. Are we ready? Will we receive the new?
Matthew 13:11 AMP
And He (Jesus) replied to them, To you it has been given to know the secrets and mysteries of the kingdom of heaven…
The NEW is a mystery, beyond our imagination and foreign to our normalcy. It is perceived by the heart of love—only by intimacy with Christ. The scribe seeks with his mind, but the disciple seeks to know the Son, so the heart is the only receptacle of the NEW.
“This is why I speak to them in parables, because seeing they do not see, and hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand… For this peoples’ HEART has grown dull and with their ears they can barely hear, and their eyes they have closed.”
Matthew 13:13, 15
The condition of the HEART determines the Light on the NEW. The NEW is too strange to be understood with the mind. It will not fit into logic. The independent mind bows only to Love’s interpretation.
