Joining up with Lisa-Jo for Five Minute Fridays. Join us as we write for five minutes on a topic that inspires each of us differently. Link up and then check out some of the other entries. Always fascinating to see how the same word inspires people so differently.
The first that comes to mind when I think of Imagine is the song by the Beatles…i think. and while I only know bits and pieces, the part that is so clearly cemented in my mind is ‘and the world will live as one’. I’m not sure how they got to that point in the song, but I do know that the only place anyone will ‘live as one’ is when we are in heaven, and the worship and adoration of our Lord is our every moment’s breathe. Peace is a good thing to hope and strive for, but sometimes it just won’t be a reality on this earth.
Its hard to imagine what world peace might look like, because i’m sure that when people think about it there are many different images that come to their minds. But i think that it would look like alot less shooting, less bombs, less famine, less abduction, less slavery, it would be a place where evil was not present because only then true peace can be found. But an evil and sinless world…will not exist again, until the Lord returns and the new heaven and earth are set in place. The fall in the garden was the event that was foreknown to take place and yet while it marred the perfection of what He had created…he knew there would be found salvation in the provision of His Son to set the possibility of true peace back on the table.
