Eph 5v14 – Dream World

For my son to participate in the university’s program, we must crawl through a narrow space. “This is crazy”, I think as we slither on our bellies. I awake. It’s a silly dream. Dream worlds are informed by our waking world, but why do we have to obey our waking world’s rules? I could have caused the narrow space to widen or the stone to vanish, but we get stuck obeying the waking world’s rules. Occasionally I’m awake to it being a dream and break free, defying the laws restricting me, flying or jumping great distances; it’s amazing. The link between the dream world and the waking world teaches us about the link between the waking world and God’s eternal world. We are stuck in our waking world, ruled by its laws and “realities”. Yet the waking world is a dream world compared to God’s eternity. Jesus showed this by constantly breaking free, defying the laws restricting us – walking on water, raising the dead, it was amazing. He was awake to God’s eternity and its endless possibilities. Even if our faith is not like Jesus’, soon, this short “dream” will end, and we will awake to God’s eternity and His reality. “So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.” (2 Corinthians 4:18). “This is why it is said: ‘Wake up, sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.’” (Ephesians 5:14).
