“You see, but you do not observe,” Sherlock Holmes. It really is an unfortunate condition because it robs people of what they want most of all. Assurance that death has no lasting finality. And we have it because, “Insomuch than, as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He Himself likewise has shared in the same, that through death, He might destroy him who has the power of death, that is the Devil.” (cp. Hebrews 2:14).
An astonishing reality that is not humanly explainable becomes our reality. Our scriptures make this declaration, “For there are three that bear witness in heaven, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, and these three are one. And there are three that bear witness on earth, the Spirit, the water, and the blood, and these three are one.” (cp. 1 John 5:7-8).
And during our lifetime this is where we are in relation to the aforementioned. “Likewise the Spirit helps with our weaknesses. For we do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with expressions which cannot be understood. Because He who searches the heart knows what the mind of the Spirit is, because He makes intercession for Christians according to the will of the Father. Thus we know that all things work together for our good for all who love God, to those who behave according to His purpose” (cp. Romans 8:26-28 with exegesis).
Meaning follow your spiritual instincts and act accordingly. Be careful there, by making sure your instincts are rooted according to our scriptures. The Beatitudes represent one source of counsel. (cp. Matthew chapters 5-7). At the very least, it’s the pathway for making life, community and the world a better place to call home.
