Chasm

Spread the love

“And besides, there is a great chasm separating us. No one can cross over to you from here, and no one can cross over to us from there.’” Luke 16:26
I had the most incredible evening last night, and the most spiritual.  A friend invited my husband and I to go see the Psycadelic Furs with him.  He’s in the music industry, my husband used to be in the music industry.  I went along for the ride.
Because of his position, our friend is granted VIP access.  It is the first time I have ever experienced what it is like behind the scenes in the music industry.
At first, I have to admit, I was nervous.  It reminded me of where I used to be before I started following Jesus.  Then the truth settled in as I remembered, I’m not that person any more.  I am new in Christ.
We had a bird’s eye view.  I stood at the gap looking over the crowd to my left, the stage to my right.  As I gazed out over the people one thought prevailed in my head, “They need Jesus.”  I started thinking this is exactly where Jesus would be, loving on these people.  I realized I had the opportunity to love on these people who I normally would never have met or seen.  I’m not a music girl, I never really have been.  I can count the number of concerts I’ve been to on two hands.
But God had brought me here.  Not only did He bring me here, but He had given me a unique view.  The chasm between the stage.  It reminded me of the distance between heaven and hell.  I kept looking at the people to the left, how desperately they wanted to be on the stage, yet they couldn’t get there.
I’m grateful for us.  We have a way of getting there.  Jesus created the way for us.  He is the bridge which we walk across to our eternity.  Praise be to God!
As I stood there, asking God the best way I could love these people?  I realized it was by praying for them.  I asked God to help them cross the chasm.  I prayed they would all come to know Jesus.  I asked Him to bring people into their lives who would introduce them to Jesus.  I prayed they would all be with me in heaven.  They would all meet my Cody boy one day who is already there.
It was powerful!  I asked the Lord not to let me forget what He showed me last night.  I don’t want to ever forget how far the Lord as brought me.  I’m so thankful He reminded me.
God rocks!
