Day 47: Does the Mind Understand or Manipulate? Free

Day 69: Between Two Worlds
Day 69: Living Daily in Reality: Between Two Worlds ===================================================
Our Maker designed each of us to express a unique part of himself through his only Son to whom he has entrusted the completion of his creation.Â Our willingness to let his son express himself through us will determine what our world is like and whom we are like.Â He has foreseen both of these outcomes, and Christ has borne the corruption of the world and our nature along with their redemption outside time in eternity.Â In this present time we are therefore between two worlds – in us and around us is the nature and the world which we have corrupted, while ahead of us in a parallel universe is our new nature and world graciously re-created by our Maker in his son’s death and resurrection. Â In this life, you are living either in the reality of our corrupted nature and world or you are living in the reality of our new nature and world that our Maker has already remade outside time.Â Who determines which nature and world you are living in?Â You do – you throw the switch – then the cosmic death and resurrection expressed at Calvary actualize here in your life! Just as even our crude high-frequency trading computers can analyze in a milli-second hundreds of buys and sells and send hundreds of alternative offers to the stock exchange, so our Maker can in a millisecond arrange thousands of events which protect the exercise of your free will yet move everything a step nearer his own plan.Â But you alone determine how long you spend crucifying or exalting your Maker. Â While you are in this world as part of the Creator’s son you are therefore either letting the spirit of his life shape your nature and the world or you’re succumbing to your nature to exploit the world.Â The uncreated spirit of his son applies the eternal work of real change wrought by the Maker himself in his son’s death, whereas our nature applies a temporary band-aid; the first deals with the actual corruption whereas the second deals with the symptoms.Â The first forms Christ within more fully, the second tries to imitate his nature.
Both require human action but one is based on the final renewal of the world wrought by God in Christ’s resurrection while the second is based on man’s own attempts to save the world.Â The first is initiated by Christ within, the second by man’s best thoughts – your will is the pivotal-point for both.Â Â Moses tried to free the Israelites by killing the slave-driver; then he freed them by the effect of the plagues wrought in Christ’s resurrection in eternity.Â Later he had to stretch his staff over the Jordan, but it was Christ’s supra-time power over the world of nature that divided the waters.
So in our twenty-first century we will continue to see the deterioration of our human nature and our world repeatedly exposed as abnormal and unintended by the creator.Â Â But alongside the encroaching chaos there
will persist the counteracting effects of the uncreated spirit of the maker’s son in things like the bacteria-killing penicillin discovered in fungus, the power of non-violent resistance in Mandela and Gandhi, and the built-in capacity of an angry man to be calmed by a soft answer. As we begin to apply reality to the diverse ways in which our world seems to be going wrong, let us see how this real power of our Maker’s uncreated life in his son can work through us.Â Â As we do that we may find there are two ways to â€œleave the world a better placeâ€(cid:157)…Â Â Â But more importantly, you may find why your Creator has made you so different from the rest of us – and you may grow up into the fullness of Christ.
