Nothing you have thought had not been thought before.
Oh perhaps a few of the facts have been mixed around, and possibly some of the names have changed, but the worlds that you have imagined, the futures you've envisioned, the goal you have set, so many others have done before you.
This should not hurt you as much as it does.
You currently live in a world that tells you that if you are not an individual then you are not free.
You currently live in a culture that tells you that if you are not independent then you have no value.
This leads you to think of yourself more highly than you think of others, because you spend every minute of every day trying to figure out a way to be an individual, to be independent, to be free, to have some sense of self-worth.
What if you were to know that your freedom comes when you give up the idea that the world has of you being separate, of being an individual, of this false sense of freedom, of trying to find self-worth from your own thoughts and your own powers? What if freedom comes when you allow yourself to become a slave?
The world does not want you to be a slave to Christ.
The world wants you to be a slave to the world.
The world wants you to be a slave to the eternal quest for your own independence.
But your freedom comes when you begin to think of others more highly than you think of yourself, after you submit yourself to the one true God, who has purchased you with the sacrificial blood of Jesus Christ, and will imbue you with the Spirit, which is wisdom and understanding ... and at long last, that peace for which we all so dearly crave.
