Thus here we are, told by these same ones, these others, to trust God, the very one that we can not see. How are we to believe that which, or whom we can not see? The very idea goes against everything we know to be, to be true. For the only way we have been able to believe is if we see.
Someone promises to do something, to produce something. “Great,” we say aloud to them. But under our breath, we doth protest and say quietly “When I see it, I will believe it.” Not understanding that by our worlds we have shut the door on all the potential that could be, potential that even this other could bring. But our words, our thoughts don’t allow, for our mind sees not how. Thus we trust not our brother. This one we can see. This one we think we know, but we know him not. This is part of what we forgot. We forgot that Christ as well lives in him and asks to be entrusted with our wills.
“What? What do you say? Are you sure you wanted to put it that way?” the reader questions. Questions are very good. Questions are the only way God and God’s ways will be understood. Jesus believe in God and in Man. He believed in the potential in all, that which we don’t have eyes to see. He knew (knows) God so intimately that he knew God could do anything including work through any man that walks the land, not just those that say they know God for God knows all men.
