The Joy of Discovery

by pilgrim on 1st December 2015

Isn’t it wonderful when we get those “aha” moments?  When we get new insights into things or topics that are already familiar to us…

No doubt we all have those experiences from time to time – but it has been especially exciting for me to get them with the Matrix,  something that I have know intuitively to be right but which sometimes lacks the biblical support.

The first of these recent new insights was when reading John chapter 1 where it talks of the coming of Christ into the world – ‘the glory of the One and Only…full of grace and truth (v14). And again in verse 17 – ‘the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.’  This reinforces the case for two dimensions in the Matrix – the horizontal representing grace, and the vertical, truth. Beautiful!

The second was that of the the ministry of reconciliation that God has entrusted to us. The apostle Paul brings this out in writing to the Corinthians: God… ‘gave us the ministry of reconciliation.’ (2 Cor 5:18). Reconciliation is the process of restoring relationships that have been broken. This is another reflection on the importance of the horizontal dimension. It again demonstrates how critical this is in a broken world. God wants things – and people – put back together again. Moreover he has chosen us to be instruments in that process.
