Everything is Awesome!


Tis the season once again to be inundated with ads about the latest gadgets and toys that will make that special someone in your life overwhelmed with joy.  One of the most popular toys each year for many years running has been Legos.  When I was a kid, when we got Legos it was just a box of random pieces that you had to use your imagination to configure something amazing.  That’s not the case these days.  A person could easily spend $100 on a Lego set and make an amazing creation.  Fortunately, each set also comes with instructions to show how to build that particular set.  The popularity of Legos was heightened a few years ago with the release of the Lego Movie.  One of the catchy songs described how everything was awesome when everyone followed the same rules and was on the same team.  Some said this was a shot at organized religion, aka Christianity, that followed the instruction manual to the point of becoming boring and out of touch with reality.  There is a point to be made from the idea whether it is genuinely inferred or not.  In the same way that a particular Lego set will not turn out the way it’s supposed to unless you go by the instructions, God has given us His instructions to accomplish the best outcome for our lives.  When we deviate from that manual and begin to create things based on our needs, wants, and desires in life it never seems to turn out right.  God has given us instructions not only for this life but for eternal life and anything other than following those instructions is incorrect.  God’s Word tells us that there is one way to the Father and that is through the Son.  If a person doesn’t have the Son then they don’t have eternal life.  As a follower of Christ, I am commanded to lay down my life daily and follow the commands of God given in His manual- The Bible.  It’s only when we follow God’s instructions that everything is awesome.
