Jesus is written all over the universe. He was there when the Trinity came up with a plan to create living beings, planets, space, time, and dimensions. He fathered every life form, which is why He is intrinsically connected to everything that lives. He understands life from the inside out, which makes Him the prime candidate for reconciliation. He brings oneness to diversity.
Jesus is the heartbeat of creation, and He loves its variety. He is the God of crocodiles and ants, antelopes and snakes, frogs and dinosaurs, birds and snails, humans and angels, water creatures and land creatures, need I say more?
We have a very big God who encompasses our heritage, our past, present, and future. In His eyes there is no need to separate simply because we differ in opinions, physical appearance, cultural background and/or worldviews. For some reason it’s a human tendency to think that there is only one right way to do things, and I for one don’t think so – not after observing God’s ways, which are mysterious. God certainly has more than one way to do things right – and we won’t accuse Him of doing things the wrong way, won’t we? I deduct that we too have more than one way to do things right, and this is huge! It means we can relax on opinions for instance. There is no such thing as one correct political way to do things. I believe what counts is the motive. It’s important that we have the best interest of this planet at heart.
We live in a global community. No country is independent. We need each other, we cannot exist without one another. It’s similar to the outdoors. Tropical rainforests are called lungs of the Earth for a reason. The Sahara has global impact as well as the polar caps, not to mention the oceans. Disturb one particle of the globe, and the entire planet will sense its impact. The same is true with the animal kingdom. From top to bottom link of the food chain, each link is needed and contributes to the global community.
Notice that the global community is diverse.
So is the multilayered universe.
We are all not the same but we belong together. As we realize the profoundness of this truth we see the dawning of God’s Kingdom.
