Fathom the Depth of His work

One of the excellent ways to attract attention – albeit a negative one – is to undress and then go to a public street, mainly during the daytime. While in your birthday suit, take a stroll along Harambee Avenue in Nairobi, Moi Avenue in Mombasa, Oginga Oginga Road in Kisumu, Kanu Street in Nakuru, or Gakere Road in Nyeri.  The attention you are likely to garner will be tremendous; greater than the one you can draw in your best apparel. Humans have a propensity towards evil. Humans pay money to watch the nakedness of other humans. There are no extenuating circumstances for such behaviour save lunacy.

Clothes are pretty important. Apart from providing a covering against extreme weathers, they also enhance our physical looks. In a way, they buttress human dignity by offering individual privacy.
Clothes are so important that Jesus had to mention them in the Gospels (Mt. 6:28; Luke 12:27) 😉 as one of the basic needs that can make one drown in worry.

You are work in progress

The warp and woof of a Christian life are punctuated with commas, colons, semi-colons, question marks and full stops.
If you have ever read any book, let’s say a novel – and I guess all of us have – you realize that a comma is not the end of a story, neither do colons nor semi-colons. A question mark just raises our antennae. It opens up us to new revelations, new knowledge, new thinking. A full stop simply means a sentence in your life has ended and another one is about to begin.

Whatever transpires in your life, as a Christian, is part of a grand woven fabric of God. All fabric/cloth have small openings; small microscopic openings. These openings do not mean the fabric is half-done or pathetic. It does not mean that it can’t offer warmth or privacy. The small openings are just part of the big fabric woven by God, the Grand Weaver, as author Ravi Zacharias puts it. No one in their right mind complains about those openings.

As a matter of fact, they serve an impressive aim of allowing unhindered perspiration. Perspiration ensures thermoregulation of our bodies. Lack of it may cause heat stroke.

Having the whole picture, the complete picture of the fabric makes us have an overcoming mentality against overwhelming mendacity of the enemy who would want us to waste our time on not so relevant misadventures in our lives.

In a nutshell, it serves us better to disregard those openings. Ignore people who can only see these openings and not the whole fabric. Snub spectators and their comments. Their work is to whine about everything. They only see the downside.

Remember God finished the work. He took warps and wefts and weaved a magnificent fabric with unmatched uniqueness. Nothing can match Him. Not even the artistic Yellow-Backed Weaver Bird of Kakamega Rainforest. God does not blunder or bluff.

Warps and Wefts do not make sense on their own. They look jumbled; not so good for a jamboree. They look worst and worthless. But wait until they are put together by a skilled weaver, and that is when you discern that Prophets do arise from Galilee. Small strands that lack colour and feeling soon turn into a magnificent fabric. And finally, a sense is made out of senseless.

Look at the big picture. Visualize the whole concept. Have an Eagle’s view. Overlook trivialities. Ignore sideshows. And as you look at the people around you, see them not as jumbled warps and wefts but as complete magnificent fabric, though with holes.

We may be partially finished goods, but as we continue hanging on the only hope – Jesus – then soon and very soon we will be finished products.

“There has never been the slightest doubt in my mind that the God who started this great work in you would keep at it and bring it to a flourishing finish on the very day Christ Jesus appears.”

Philippians 1:6 (The Message Bible).
