Pastor’s Page - February 2015 “IMAGINATION!”

Ephesians 3:20-21 “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations.”

Perhaps the second greatest gift, next to eternal life, that God ever gave human beings is imagination. There is nothing that children can’t act out in their play time with imagination. The chairs that you sit on, the computer that you work at, the car that you drive, the house that you live in became reality as a direct result of someone first imagining it. Imagining something is the first step toward making something real.

Thomas Edison had to imagine the light bulb before he could begin the long process of designing one. Alexander Graham Bell had to imagine the telephone before he could ever come close to assembling one. Abraham Lincoln had to imagine a unified nation with freedom for all before he could work toward establishing one.

Imagination is the first step toward making something real, and, in this sense, the church is a community of imagination. God foresaw a creation that was sinless and holy. When that creation fell into sin, God’s Plan was still valid and instrumental in restoring creation. Jesus came into the world, and through his life, death, and resurrection, he has called us to imagine the kingdom of God--a kingdom of righteousness, justice, and peace. When we imagine it as real, we are taking the first step toward living it as real.

Imagine what a Sunday morning worship service with every pew and the balcony filled with church members would look like. Let your imagination run wild. Can’t you just hear the singing of hymns rattling the windows and drowning out the organ. Imagine a Sunday school with overflowing classrooms and the need to ask for donations to purchase all the needed materials. Or, imagine a yearly offering so large that it covers expenses and makes building a new and larger church a reality.

But imagination takes effort. It demands a vision. It demands that we see beyond our own wants and desires and sometimes our own selfishness to always keep things “just the way the are,” to always keep things “comfortable and familiar.” Imagination demands that we see beyond what is and what we want…to what can be and what God wants.

God calls each of us to use our best gifts, our best talents, our best time, our best gifts of imagination to awaken the reality of all that we can be--all that He has in store for us--all that He is ready to bless tenfold, when we imagine His kingdom of righteousness and holiness here on earth and in the church. The human imagination truly is a great gift. It ranks right up there with a will in tune with God’s will and hands to make the imagination a reality.

Rev. John Wilman
