Passive and Active

 What does passive have to do with Christianity? All things will pass away Matthew 24:35 Heaven and Earth will pass away but my words will not pass away. This may sound a little deep for some and almost new age. Actually this is scripture and all things will pass away , if we think about it more - heaven and earth. Wow, I was planning on spending eternity in heaven - it was like my eternal retirement village. What now- the only thing left is the Word. Think about time it passes from second to second, and space it becomes empty - then full. So time and space are passive - we have memories of the past but really even eventually our memories fade. We can see it in our elderly or in my case my own son whose mind is diminishing. Then where is our Hope, where can we find refuge?
 We are in the moment living in a state of grace , however Christ longs to bring us further into truth. Jesus came to bring Grace and Truth , it was his mission. Grace the divine element was bought with a great price for all , and that is a wonderful gift. The truth however is gained not by finding, since the truth is not lost, we are lost. The truth is revealed by Christ in an appointed time to each of us. It is something we must submit to , like sheep we are led by the shepherd to truth. No one wants to be compared to sheep , even I was offended by this parable. I guess you will eventually realize it is the best way to describe our relationship to the truth.
 God will never leave us or forsake us, it is a promise made to those who trust God, simply put. We are living in time and space - yet these passive conditions will not exist someday being they are temporary. Life itself was described as a vapor by a prophet. So we see all that remains is the transformation, which is energy. God is spirit , spirit is God - we can find this all throughout the bible and many other religious books written by holy men and woman. Also revealed to teachers and guru's throughout the ages is that this transformation is more than just change , we become active. We become the living Word that is also Christ. We become one with Christ , this is scriptural.
And the LORD God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:
So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
 So, I am not expecting what many are to think in my current reality and try to transpose that into another reality. My thoughts are now centered on Christ , being one with the Word. How is this accomplished - no longer being in the flesh but in the spirit. All that matters is Christ , not putting our hopes in passive things. All these things will pass away , trust in God only. I am not a religious fan or even a regular church goer though occasional. We think in terms of here and now - yet the clock is ticking people and things pass. What does that mean , why should we fear passive things eventually they will disappear. Time is passing , my hair is grey and white not long ago it was amber and brown.
Soon- I too will pass but hopefully not before being transformed into that spirit called the Word. We are one with the word.
And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to you. Holy Father, keep through your own name those whom you have given me, that they may be one, as we are.
