Here’s the meme he posted:

another-world

To which my comment included:

“How would I live now if I really embrace fully this concept? What would be different about my responses and concerns?”

Followed by his invitation of:

“That’s a good question…what’s the answer? You first.”

Here’s some beginning thoughts, but perhaps you might add a few more?  I have referenced a several blogs specifically, but anyone can play, as long as we all play nice. (Actually, all Christians could use some insight on this one, so comments are welcomed and solicited.)

My two cents:

  1. If I’m made (created/designed) for another world, that must mean that I have certain otherwise “alien” (non-resident) capacities that are not considered “normal” for this place.  (I should not be put off by modern-day usage of Acts 2 and 1 Corinthians 12-14, for example.)
  2. If I’m made (created/designed) for another world, I should not be taken aback when I am misunderstood, misrepresented, and/or mistreated.  
  3. If I’m made (created/designed) for another world, that may mean that I have certain pit-falls, spiritual “kryptonite” if you will, that must be avoided at all costs, but doesn’t seem to cause any discomfort to those who are of this world.

Okay I guess that three cents instead of two.  And perhaps I should stop, since I’m delving a bit deeper into the Superman analogy (that’s my husband’s blog…)  But when you think of it, that’s what we are called to be, in a sense, naturally not of our own superman-295328_1280power but by the supernatural power from an Other-Worldly Source.
