I often feel like an eagle in a chicken’s body.
When I read the Scriptures I see the life that God intends for me to enjoy this side of eternity, but I find myself too often mired with the chickens.
“For you have been born again, but not to a life that will quickly end. Your new life will last forever because it comes from the eternal, living word of God.” 1 Peter 1:23 New Living Translation
The life we have in Christ lasts for eternity. The problem is that too often we think this life begins when we’re in the presence of Christ on his throne, but when I read the Scriptures like 1 Peter 1:23, I see that God intends for us to fly like eagles now.
Look at this picture. There are only two people in the balloon beginning their flight into the morning air. There are hundreds of people stuck on terra firma. Those two people saw the world differently than the rest of us.
We have been redeemed to fly with Christ even now. Our problems and struggles look differently when we fly with Christ.
In Christ this chicken can fly like an eagle.
