Not Just Another Ant

I was in the backyard lying on the grass. I spied with my little eye…an ant. They are so busy. I said “hi ant, how are you today?’ No I am not losing my mind!

The ant went about his business oblivious to my talking to it, of course. He/she was so busy, totally ingrossed in its job of the day.

I thought about those great kids movies we have, Bugs Life, Ant Bully etc. It takes us into their world, as if it’s just like ours. Our world is parallel to theirs really.  They have a job to do. They are a community together. They have families. They protect their own. They are intelligent. But we can’t communicate with them.

Now of course the best solution for me to communicate with that ant is to become like him.

This is what Jesus did.
No he was not just another ‘ant’.

How else can God get our attention, than by becoming one of us. It is brilliant. Its funny though that so many missed this. They expected God to turn up as an all powerful king.

Now if I was going to become an ant to communicate with them, I also would probably want to go incognito. To check out how they lived etc. I think I would be mobbed if they knew I was not one of them.

Jesus was one of us. He lived amongst us. God was made flesh and blood, so that He could reach us.

It was up to God to choose any way He wanted, to come into this world. He chose Mary, a girl who loved Him and followed His ways. She understood God’s mission and His plan.

Jesus was not just another ant. Jesus was not just another man. He was born of God and Man.

He said to follow Him. He said if you see me, you see the Father. We have missed the boat. We did not recognise him when He came.

We do now. We see that God chose the upmost sacrifice for us. He died and gave His life so that we could be set free.

Don’t let your brain get in the way of this. You can’t understand it, yet we don’t have to. We just have to accept it. Our ways are not God’s ways. His is far higher than what we can ever think of.

I love that scripture that says….Our highest intellect is like foolishness to God. He is the Almighty. Trust Him. He knew and knows what He is doing.

1 Corth 1 v 25 (KJV)
25Because the foolishness of God is wiser than men; and the weakness of God is stronger than men.

Look how the message bible puts it:
Christ is God's ultimate miracle and wisdom all wrapped up in one. Human wisdom is so tinny, so impotent, next to the seeming absurdity of God. Human strength can't begin to compete with God's "weakness."

Jesus lived amongst us to show us the way. He loves us and has a new life for us. Don’t miss out on this new life…its called ETERNITY and it starts right now.

These ants worked together to achieve a purpose. Below is a video that is amazing. They knew what to do. We also should get our lives together and work together. In our Anger Management Course Dan gives us tools to use that are by far a better choice when dealing with issues. In fact using the right ‘tools’ is really how God wants us to live.

We are a part of the community of man. Yet we are citizens of Heaven. We are called to live how God has shown us. Using the wrong tools in life causes heartache and broken relationships.

Lets work together, to bring about a better life.
