Your old life is dead. Your new life, which is your real life--even though invisible to spectators--is with Christ in God. He is your life.(Colossians 3:3 MSG)There is an eternal invisible reality that can be occluded by that visible and audible reality that screams at us and demands our immediate attention. Jesus spoke of this reality and likened it to the unseen wind:
Jesus said, "You're not listening. Let me say it again. Unless a person submits to this original creation--the 'wind hovering over the water' creation, the invisible moving the visible, a baptism into a new life--it's not possible to enter God's kingdom. (John 3:5 MSG)I like the way that The Message says that the invisible moves the visible. Like the reality of the invisible wind, the reality and presence of God's Spirit in our lives will impact our visible world. It puts a whole new spin on being a realist.
