the mundane.

the mundane.
the place that’s so easy to slip in to,, and even more easy to be left stuck in.
the place we all get so tired of.

mundane |ˌmənˈdān|
1 lacking interest or excitement; dull: seeking a way out of his mundane, humdrum existence.
2 of this earthly world rather than a heavenly or spiritual one
1 her mundane life: humdrum, dull, boring, tedious, monotonous, tiresome, wearisome, unexciting, uninteresting, uneventful, unvarying, unremarkable, repetitive, repetitious, routine, ordinary, everyday, day-to-day, run-of-the-mill, commonplace, workaday; informal plain-vanilla, ho-hum. ANTONYMS extraordinary, imaginative.
2 the mundane world: earthly, worldly, terrestrial, material, temporal, secular, areligious; literary sublunary. ANTONYMS spiritual.                       

the mundane,,
[we hate it because we were not made for it].

freedom from the mundane,,
the answer is beautifully simple,,

“they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world”.
     John 17:16

we are free from it.

we are not of this earthly, temporal material, mundane world.
we were not born-again into a dull, unexciting, uneventful, ordinary, mundane life.

even Webster’s knows that the very antonym,, opposite,, of the mundane is an extraordinary,
spiritual existence.

and in 1 Corinthians 6:17,, Paul states the unthinkable, what we all are pining for,,

[with raw hands and dirty fingernails,, clawing at this dry dirt, this earth, this dust,, known as us… to get past the temporal, broken, earthly clay-man,
and release the streams of living water underneath,,
where the God man breathes],,

“but he who is joined to the Lord becomes one spirit with Him”.

[[there is nothing mundane about the Spirit of God]].

there is nothing ordinary about the power and authority Jesus gave us.
there is nothing commonplace about His wild, unrestrained love.

life is anything but uneventful when we walk in boldness. when we walk in power. when we walk in love.

our beings, our lives, our very existence become the opposite of this world, of the temporal, of the mundane,, when we see what He sees and we do what He does,, they become

be free of the mundane.
and be free in the Spirit instead.

the deep things of God.

God has promises .
He also has

“Yet among the mature we do impart wisdom, although it is not a wisdom of this age or of the rulers of this age, who are doomed to pass away.
But we impart a secret and hidden wisdom of God, which God decreed before the ages for our glory. None of the rulers of this age understood this, for if they had, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. But, as it is written,
                           “What eye has seen, nor ear heard,
                             nor the heart of man imagined,
                             what God has prepared for those who
                              love Him”---

these things God has revealed to us through the Spirit. For the Spirit searches everything, even the depths of God. For who knows a person’s thoughts except the spirit of that person, which is in him? So also no one comprehends the thoughts of God except the Spirit of God. Now we have received not the spirit of the world, but the Spirit who is from God, that we might understand the things freely given us by God. And we impart this in words not taught by human wisdom but taught by the Spirit, interpreting spiritual truths to those who are spiritual.
The natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned. The spiritual person judges all things, but is himself to be judged by no one. “For who has understood the mind of the Lord so as to instruct Him?”
But we have the mind of Christ.
                                                                                                     1 Corinthians 2:6-16

[[I’ve given you access to My depths. ]]

>> through the Spirit,, the level of intimacy and unity
we can have with God is unfathomable. <<

I want to know the secrets of His heart.
                                   greater revelation,,
                                   deeper in the Spirit,,
                                   mysteries made bare,, naked,, unveiled,,
                                   knowing more fully His will,,

                                 [[ what He actually means.
                                   who He actually is.

It is the glory of God to conceal things,
    but the glory of kings is to search things out.”

                                                 Proverbs 25:2
