Every now and then I ponder things and then share them in a blog post. (This Of Colours and Discovery, has been quiet for some time.)
Just “borrowing” the title from a dave matthews band album:

These may not be big things to you but I’m going to share them anyway.
I was reminded at church tonight about Jesus being the fulcrum in human history.
Basically, whatever you believe… your calendar is based on the life (or death) of Jesus. We follow the Roman calendar and the Roman Empire gave us BC time and AD time.
Whether you’re an atheist, or believe in another religion… you have to subscribe to the fact that we’re all living in AD 2018.
A date that has it’s basis in the life of Jesus. Interesting hey?
The second thing that I have mulling over the last few weeks…
The times we find ourselves in, makes me marvel in wonder!!!
How smart the world is becoming!
I am referring to all the technological advancements around us:
Amazon robots doing deliveries
It’s all so amazing! Rattles my brain (in a good way) at times.
And you know what? ALL of this, didn’t catch Jesus by surprise.
It’s not like when He roamed the earth many many years ago…
AD 30 roughly; that man who was a carpenter by trade and was (is the) son of God by identity – He knew about mobile technology, google glasses etc…
None of it was a surprise.
As He used the tools of that time, He had the thoughts that no other human could even comprehend. “Just wait and see, what you people will be coming up with.”
Cars, to planes that travel across the world, to sky scrapers with over 40 floors.
That leads most people to the question: why did Jesus, chose that time to reveal Himself to humankind? (Hmmm, I don’t know… why not ask Him?)
My guess, is He came at the right time. (According to His plan)
And also in a time, where life was a lot less cluttered.
And people would follow Him, out of desiring a relationship with God and not chasing after another gimmick…(like a lot of the modern day person does.)
