“You are not a human being in search of a spiritual experience. You are a spiritual being immersed in a human experience.” – Pierre Teilhard de Chardin SJ, French idealist philosopher, paleontologist and Jesuit priest.
“This is the way.” – The Mandalorian
“I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” John 14:6
After listening to Josiah I began thinking about how Jesus has touched my life and that of my family. I began thinking about how there are people in the world who are of the world and not of the spirit of Jesus who is the Son of God. I began thinking about what makes mankind different from any other creature on this earth – FAITH!
I began thinking that every human has faith in something or someone. But not faith in the most important thing, faith in our innate spiritual being.
After watching the Universal Pictures film “1917” all I could think of is how it was a profile is courage. I also felt that Hollywood may have returned to an era where courage, faith and manhood reigned supreme.
After watching the Disney+ Channel’s Mandalorian I took note of their creed, “This Is The Way.” I also noted a quote from the Mandalorian Armorer who said:
“A foundling is in your care. By Creed, until it is of age or reunited with its own kind, you are as its father. This is the way!”
As the longtime pastor of Houston’s First Baptist Church John Bisagno wrote:
Faith is the heart of life. You go to a doctor you know little about. He gives you a prescription you cannot read. You take it to a pharmacist you have never seen. He gives you a medicine you do not understand and yet you take it.
So it is with Jesus. You know you must take his medicine in order to be well, to be fulfilled. That medicine is called FAITH. FAITH has the power to heal everything both spiritual and physical.
The Holy Bible is the Book of Life
There is nothing that has been written, put on film, discussed on television, radio or on the internet that has not already been told or foretold in the Holy Bible.
If you want to understand how not to live your life. If you want to understand how to live your life you must read and understand the Holy Bible. As John 10:10 notes:
The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.
We are all humans of “the way.” There is a good way and a bad way. God gave all His spiritual beings the ability to choose their own way. Like the Mandalorian sometimes the way is cast upon us, and it becomes our destiny.
“God has devised ways for all of us to live, but it is for us to choose how.”
Jesus was born for a cause, a way, greater than any before or since his crucifixion. His death gave us all the way to life everlasting if we just will embrace it by faith in Him. Jesus had FAITH in his Father.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
Belief requires faith. Have faith and you will receive the greatest gift ever given to mankind.
