The Holy One by Pastor Melissa Scott

August 12th, 2010

Pastor Melissa Scott tells us that this may or may not have anything to do, although from my vantage point it does. If you hear nothing else I say today, want to read you a little something very, very short. Sometimes the briefest things, the most straight to the point, can be the most profound from The Business of Heaven: Daily Readings from C.S. Lewis. Those of you who know I like to just mull through. Something very profound.

“It’s nice to still be under the care of Saint Mary Magdalene. The allegorical sense of her great action dawned on me the other day. The precious alabaster box which one must break over the Holy One’s is, the Holy One’s feet is one’s heart, easier said than done, and the contents will become perfume only when it’s broken. While they are safe inside, they’re more like sewage.” It’s very brief. I may need to reread that later I’m not quite sure you all heard what I said.

But there’s this tendency to, I guess, live under the realm that as long as you believe don’t get me wrong. I love the song Only Believe: “Only believe; all things are possible,” but we live in this realm where ‘Just believe,’ seldom do people actually venture into why we practice certain things. Why do people do what they do? And you’ll find that as we go you’re starting to see that I like all kinds of things you’re getting to know me a little bit more one of them is ecclesiology, the history of the Church, or Church history, because if you go back in time you will see how things became that weren’t there at the beginning.

Now, I’m going to take you to Acts 19 to start, it’s not where we’re going to stay but turn in your Bibles to Acts 19. The precursor to this is I really want you as we read through this Acts 19, I want you to take a different look. In fact, if I could ask you something it would be “Start reading your Bible with new eyes, because you can become so familiar with something it no longer has the impact that it first had the first time you read it.” We have been and we will be today in Revelation, but I wish to show something.
