Between The Lines… You

Between the lines… you

We were sitting in the library and Grandfather opened a book and said I want you to see what’s on these pages. These are the pages of the Holy Scripture, he said. Tell me what you see.

That’s easy, I said, words, writing, letters.

Is that all? He said.

Well, let’s see, Matthew 6 about the middle of the Sermon On The Mount. I responded.

And?

What else is there? I asked.

You haven’t even described the half of it.

What do you mean? I asked.

You’ve only described the black, but not the rest..

The white? I asked.

Then the lesson began!

Yes, the white, the background. The black is holy; so too is the white. Without it you wouldn’t see the black of the ink, there would be nothing with which to contrast it, nothing to delineate it. Without the white, you wouldn’t see the Word of God. The white is the unscripture of God.

The unscripture? I said, What are you telling me?

Yes, the unscripture. When the Word is sent into the world, it must have a context, it must have a parchment, a paper, a voice, some medium to bear and manifest it to the world. This is the sacred white of the unscripture, the what between the lines. And do you know what the holiest unscripture is?

No, I guess I don’t. I said.

Your life, he said. Your life is the sacred white upon which His Word appears, the Holy parchment that bears and manifests the eternal script.

Therefore, the key is to join your life, your heart, your emotions, your soul and your will to the Word of God. To join the black with the white, the ink with the page, to receive the Holy oracle’s, to carry it and manifest it to the world. Let every part of your life become the sacred white onto which the Word of God is revealed. Let your life become sacred unscripture of God. You are the between the lines that emphasize His word through your words and actions.
Your word I have hidden in my heart, That I might not sin against You. Psalm 119: 11
Let the message of Christ dwell among you richly as you teach and admonish one another with all wisdom through psalms, hymns, and songs from the Spirit, singing to God with gratitude in your hearts. Colossians 3:16

Join the Word to the parchment of your heart, your will, your emotions and your ways. Let your life become the sacred white of God’s Word.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
