The Naked God Follower
Remember the story of the emperor and his new Clothes and how all his servants simply agreed that he looked good when in fact he was naked? Well, it's not really relevant, but I wanted to impart an idea using this concept of not needing any special ordination to be happy and in God.
Recently I have Learnt that God does not require me to use a certain book, wear special clothing or attribute myself with a particular title.
It requires only my acknowledgement that I am connected and I am indeed already one with my maker.
Breathes a sigh of relief.
Why is this important? Because otherwise I was tempted to spend a lot of time trying to become a certain type of person. A societal construction complete with body adornment, book and title. I am not man-made and the source of my creation does not pass through the man-made objects and ideology we use so much to define who we are.
Walking naked for me means dropping all the constructed persona's and being a pane of glass, no elaboration, just a sheer clear sheet through which the light of Christ can pass. No specific language either is required. Plain and simple but not without a steely strong will, which it would have to be, as it is not my own but my Source's.
I do not have to be anyone other than me to live the right life and walk the right path intended by God for me. Phew!
