God seeks worshipers.
This is a mystery to most.
It must be understood in spirit,
for God is Spirit.
Those blind to spirit say, “He must be egocentric!”
That kind of logic will point at a rolling tumbleweed
and exclaim, “It must have tiny little legs!”
When God made Adam
He breathed His Spirit into the man.
Adam was a perfected being.
The moment he tasted the fruit of good and evil, though,
he descended into dichotomy.
You cannot look at two things simultaneously.
An oyster thinks the world is this sea bottom watery place,
believes that a grain of sand is just an irritation
and does not let it in.
For thousands of years only a handful of people
cultivated the Spirit of God into a pearl of great price;
only a few let it open their shells
to take in the Light from above
and shine in worship so that the Lover of pearls
could pluck them from their briny grave.
These rare pearls tried over and over to show the others
that they were more than a shell, that they must have faith
the size of a grain of sand, to let it become much more
if they just let it grow so that it will have no choice
but to open, exposing the precious inner Truth.
The oysters laughed and scorned and killed them
then went back to watching crabs and fishes.
God finally sent down His most precious pearl of all,
knowing it had to be crushed into powder
so those who believed could allow it to grow within.
When we accept Christ as our personal Savior,
we let Him into our hearts,
and we nurture the essence of His love through worship
until our crusty old shells burst open and we reflect the Light of the Son.
God seeks worshippers, this Lover of pearls.
Let Him see you shine
so He can lift you from your briny grave.
