Going Beyond Z

"So on beyond Z, it's high time you were shown that you really don't know all there is to be known." [Dr. Seuss]

Great line. Great lesson. This recognition in my own life has truly opened me up so much spiritually. Actually, just opened me up to life -- and in that, opened me up spiritually. I've found it's a natural flow.

The virgin birth is a great example of this. What do the implications of that mean to us today in the sense of whether God is still creating/putting events into action that go beyond Z? Have we as Christians lost a zeal for life because we believe God stopped going beyond Z at the end of Revelation? Do we think we've seen it all? Do we think we know it all? Are we missing spritual blessings today because we've stopped looking beyond Z? Are we letting true life pass us by?

I don't know the answers.

Maybe they're individual.

I'm just asking the questions.

Just continuing the dialogue...

i think we think we know it all or have seen it all. we are deceived by our own complacent thinking. we have good intentions, at least we would say that we do... but really, what intentions do we really have?

remain part of status quo?
find casual niche in church community?
seek comfort?
wait for 'the lost' to wander in?

i don't think we really can comprehend what lies beyond z. i am striving to see what that is... and i have to admit, there is a little bit of fear in my heart as to what i may find.

beyond z just might mean a whole new look & feel to what we now call 'the church'.

we may also discover that beyond z is written in the lines of the new testament... we, the church just haven't bothered to dig that deep or read what lies beneath.

things are either going to change o die. death just might not look like we expect.
