Human beings are made of average clay. We know it as skin.
Nothing special. Skin is a normal, everyday part of life. Some is smooth, some is wrinkly, some dark, some pale, some freckled and some itchy.
Most faces you see are average. Any given face walking by is any given face: two eyes, two ears, one mouth and a strange thing called a nose. Hair is hair - - it rarely behaves. And there are eyebrows too!
Yeah, yeah, yeah, tell me something I don't know. O.k. Take a moment to read this statement by C. S. Lewis concerning the "Weight of Glory":
“It is a serious thing to live in a society of possible gods and goddesses, to remember that the dullest most uninteresting person you talk to may one day be a creature which, if you see them now, you would be strongly tempted to worship, or else a horror and a corruption such as you now meet, if at all, only in a nightmare. All day long we are, in some degree helping each other to one or the other of these destinations. It is in the light of these overwhelming possibilities, it is with the awe and the circumspection proper to them, that we should conduct all of our dealings with one another, all friendships, all loves, all play, all politics. There are no ordinary people. You have never talked to a mere mortal. Nations, cultures, arts, civilizations - These are mortal, and their life is to ours as the life of a gnat. But it is immortals whom we joke with, work with, marry, snub, and exploit - immortal horrors or everlasting splendors.”
Have you ever thought about what we will become?
Glory will change us. Some to princes and princesses of the eternal God; and others will display the scourge of being a rebel to holiness. You are no mere mortal. You some day will rule, or some day you will be a horror. Glory is not something to trifle with.
Jesus left glory and entered humanity to take humans up with him to glory. I am afraid most of you reading this don't believe this.
What you currently see is not what you are going to be! Take heed.
