The Nest

I love it when I see a nest in a tree.  All the bird has to do is gather the materials (which have been provided), commit to a spot (which there are plenty of), and care for the eggs by staying with them (a natural process).  At the end of the day, the birds have it made, cooperating with nature and simply doing right.

23 Jesus answered him, “Those who love me will keep my word, and my Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. —John 14

When God is our top priority, loving him and keeping his word (or commands) is achievable.  Faith becomes something that can have a natural feel to it.  I never said it was “easy,” just “achievable.”

26 But Jesus looked at them and said, “For mortals it is impossible, but for God all things are possible.” —Matthew 19

When it comes to faith, we have all that we need.  God has provided the materials (the work on the cross, the resurrection, scripture, prayer, fellowship), the spot (our hearts), and the natural process (our desire to love and be in relationship).  It’s actually true: when it comes to connecting with God and living as Christ has taught us, we have all we need.  It is possible with God, the one who has committed to make his home within us.

Materials; the spot; the process.  Build your nest with God.
