They say, “You are only human”. As if that saying is some consolation. As if those words remove the spawn of failure called grief. We have stabbed ourselves through the heart, what can repair such a fatal wound?
In truth they are trying to show mercy. But it is for the sake of His Mercy that grief has come. For this reason “being human” is no consolation at all.
He has loved us with the most inexpressible love. And the greatest of our good intentions fall flat, like untuned strings on a well made violin, we have no song to sing. It is impossible for words alone to give us consolation. We find ourselves in desperate need of what this world cannot deliver.
But doesn’t He come to us very quickly? Doesn’t he support our slumping frame? Doesn’t he urge us to continue regardless our shame?
“This is but today my son. The entirety of your life has not arrived. I do not give as the world gives. Let Me be God. Let Me judge what is true.” And so, in a variety of form, the Lord speaks lovingly to his children.
Our faith finds no help from being human. Our faith finds no help in the consolation from men. Our faith was forged in the bloody beating of the Holy Lord Jesus. The raging fires of hell only perfected perfection. Our consolation is delivered with a Holy kiss from life itself.
Christianity is not a religion. It is an indescribably beautiful relationship with the Holy and Righteous Son of the Living God. This is why the peace we have cannot be disturbed or even encouraged by man.
GLORY IS HIS ALONE!
By His Grace
