Go Further - The heaven and earth dance floor

And there was a man in Jerusalem whose name was Simeon; and this man was righteous and devout, looking forward to the consolation of Israel; and the Holy Spirit was upon him. And it had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not see death before he had seen the Lord’s Christ. And he came by the Spirit into the temple; and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to carry out for Him the custom of the Law, then he took Him in his arms, and blessed God, and said, “Now, Lord, You are letting Your bond-servant depart in peace, according to Your word;
or my eyes have seen Your salvation, which You have prepared in the presence of all the peoples: A light for revelation for the Gentiles,
And the glory of Your people Israel.” Luke 2:25-32 NASB

And there was a prophetess, Anna, the daughter of Phanuel, of the tribe of Asher. She was advanced in years and had lived with her husband for seven years after her marriage, and then as a widow to the age of eighty-four. She did not leave the temple grounds, serving night and day with fasts and prayers. And at that very moment she came up and began giving thanks to God, and continued to speak about Him to all those who were looking forward to the redemption of Jerusalem. Luke 2:36-38 NASB

  1. The metaphor of a dance (a delightful, cooperative activity) between heaven and Earth and John Wesley's quote seem to shed some light on the Arminianism vs. Calvinism tension. It's like we have a "menu" of promises / offers from God so, we're limited to what He'll support, but within that list, we have the choice of what we pray / hope for / expect, by faith, to occur.

    1. Great point of view, Jeff! I feel like this sort of faith-tension helps with a high-value of God's sovereignty and our commissioning to exercise dominion under his sovereignty. He "works all things after the counsel of his will" according to his purpose (Ephesians 1:11) in partnership with us as we are obedient and conformed to the image of Christ. Thanks for sharing!
