I supposedly have this fancy Jetpack on my website that enables me to post via email. What?!? I can hardly believe that– it makes no sense. You are telling me that if I write an email and attach a picture, WordPress will post it for me? How does this work? Why does it work? It is beyond my comprehension.
But there are a lot of things that are beyond my comprehension like how cell phones send messages thousands of miles in six seconds and why my house is always dirty the very second I finish cleaning it. To me, it just doesn’t make any sense.
But I guess the thing that is the most curious to me are these words of Jesus from Mark chapter 8. . . ” 35For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me and for the gospel will save it. What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul?37 Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul?
To me, these words don’t make sense— If I try to save myself I will lose myself, BUT if I give up myself, I will find myself. This is a GREAT mystery, one I can’t comprehend. But I am unwilling to forfeit my soul. I have nothing to give in exchange for my soul. So I am on the journey willing to lose my life knowing without a doubt that Jesus will prove this thing does work!
