Day 36: Quantum Physics and Parallel Universes Free

Day 47: Does the Mind Understand or Manipulate? Free
As we begin to live in reality rather than the fantasy that we are self-made, autonomous creatures, our personalities start to work the way God intended them to – from the inside out. This changes the way our minds work and brings freedom from self.

Day 73: Christ in You – the Hope of glory Free

Day 74: The Fulness of Stature – The Hope of Glory Free

Day 66: Living Daily in Reality: Why Work? ==========================================
God made us free so that we could let his only Son develop the world through us, but we chose to ignore him and develop the world for ourselves.Â He knows there’s nothingness apart from him – and he knew we’d initially corrupt the human organism through misuse – so he remade you and me in a parallel universe.Â Â
You can experience that fact by recognizing it and living accordingly – only the maker can remake the nature that we have perverted.Â So we all live as broken organisms in a broken organism, but both we and it have been remade by our maker in eternity outside time – as expressed in 29 A.D. by his Son’s crucifixion and resurrection.Â We can escape the present unreality of our world and ourselves by rejecting the one and accepting the other.Â Â You can decide to put your faith in your maker’s fulfillment of your abilities rather than your enjoyment of leisure to do what you want.Â The first leads paradoxically to enlargement while the second leads to shrinkage.
That’s the choice you have as you think of your work – do you assume that there is no god that is personally interested in you or your security?Â Â Or do you assume that you have a loving Father who made you so that his Son can live in you and develop the world through you by your work?Â Â Â There must be some reason why there’s no one else in the whole world just like you – that’s what our latest DNA research is finding.Â Scientists now say that of the twenty thousand genes that run your whole being – .010% have never occurred in the same way as they do in you – not in any other person who has ever lived or is living today!Â Â You are actually unique – the maker has made no one else like you – which is what his son, Jesus Christ, implied when he said that â€œevery hair of your head is numberedâ€(cid:157).Â Â When our maker turned to his son and said â€œlet us make man in our imageâ€(cid:157), he knew that he would have to make billions of people like his son to express his own infinitely varied nature.Â Â So you are alive and different from everyone else so that our maker’s son can express through you some likeness of his father that none of the rest of us possess.Â Â
Christ’s apostle, Paul put it like this – â€œwe are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus, for good works that God has prepared beforehand that we should walk in themâ€(cid:157).Â All the developments and rectifications of the world have been foreseen and effected by our Maker, but you are the only one he has willed to work the works that you alone can do – whether inventing the fastest computer or cleaning the bathroom floor.Â Work is not just using your mind to get what you need (our maker will take care of that).Â Work is using your mind to understand what particular repairs and improvements to the world God will carry out through you.Â In other words, God will â€œfill the earth and subdue itâ€(cid:157) through work that his son will do through you that
he will not do through anyone else in just the same way!Â He gave you a mind so that you could understand his works and ways and be a co-worker with him to redeem the world and develop the universe.
Two mighty operations are going on in this planet – one is the clear demonstration of what life is like without God – the world is deteriorating and declining in all kinds of ways; but the other operation is the uplifting and restraining work that our maker’s son has been given to do – and this work he can do only through your physical presence.Â Â So you are here so that Christ can do through you a work that he can do through no one else.
We, of course, have perverted our natures by using our minds to manage and manipulate the world of things for our own personal benefit.Â Â Thus our minds become impaired and narrowed by self-interest and we are unable to see the expansive plans and strategies that our Creator has for us.Â From time to time He manifests this function of the mind in an Einstein or Newton, but his desire is that each one of us would use our minds to understand what particular work He has for us to do. When you wonder what you should do with your life, find out what things the son of God can do through you to fill the earth and bring it into the order and beauty God has in mind.Â Â The last thing you need to concern yourself with is your food and shelter, because God’s son has said â€œyour heavenly Father knows you need those thingsâ€(cid:157) and he feeds the birds and clothes the flowers!
