Casting Call… The PASSION PLAYed

Casting call for all Marys, Simon Peters, Johns, Thomas’, Judas’, and, and, and… you.  I, myself, have been caught up in the ‘What if’ that was me?  What if that was me who lived and loved for such a time as… The PASSION ‘PLAYed’ out?

† 

Then & Now…

With me, in character…

I can imagine the heart-felt desperation of Mary Magdalene for Jesus, as seated in tears…
The repeated acknowledgement of my failures and unworthiness as devoted friend and loyal family member, as it was with Peter…
As being so loved and favored, unjustly by my own works, likened to the grace for John…
Forever doubtful and mistrusting, because of past crimes against me, that I must see and hear HIM for myself, oh how I doubt, Thomas…
Or, do I dare to speak of the ‘unpardonable’ loss and despair of my soul, having CROSSed the line into hopelessness?   Oh my God… I have been PLAYED!

       ♪Create in me a clean heart, O God,
And renew a steadfast spirit within me.
Do not cast me away from Your presence
And do not take Your Holy Spirit from me.
Restore to me the joy of Your salvation
And renew a right spirit within me. ♪
[Psalm 51]

 

Casting call…

YOU!  ‘What if’ this is you?  What about you… has your PASSION ‘PLAYed’ …is it “Now Showing”?  Tell me saint what is your reality, right now?  I gotta know.  This role call is critical.  Who’s playing your part or whose part are you playing?  And WHO are you playing for?

Are you desperately seeking Love; captive to your own defeat; been unjustly served or loved; indecisive of Truth or wrapped up in the bondage of mistrust as prescribed by others; or maybe, just maybe, you think you have reached the point of no return?  Tell me plainly saint… your PASSION PLAYed in PART.

The scene is set.  There is God [Producer, Director, Leading Man]…                          

    Are you ready for the call?

Jesus is looking for a few good… sinners.  Many are called, few are chosen.  To be chosen, one must audition.  This part is simple, but hard… “Here am I, send me.”  And at the end of the show… “Thank You Lord, may I have another?”

JESUS… our Good Part!

If you Believe…  HE’s got a role for you!

      Here are some of the parts God has appointed…

  first are apostles,
second are prophets,
third are teachers,
then those who do miracles,
those who have the gift of healing,
those who can help others,
those who have the gift of leadership,
those who speak in unknown languages.
[1 Corinthians 12:28]

The PASSION PLAYed… CAST OUT!
