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.
