we are alive by proxy
we are strong by proxy
we love by proxy
god works by proxy in the known universe
and this is so that we would not have to spend our energy on keeping up appearances, pretences, boasting, statuses, biases and all that jazz.
this is so that we can go forth and spend our energy on the important thing – building the kingdom of god.
so that all we do, and say, and are acclaim and praise him who is our source of energy, our proxy – jesus and in him – the godhead.
and if this do not happen, then, just like luke writes – “the stones along the road would burst into cheers”. are we more alive than stones?
