The experts in signs demand a sign out of heaven. One man reads the signs and explains the “blood moon.” But, he’s a fisherman. Jesus seemed to think that we are living in a parable. So all creation is a metaphor; God writes the story and everything happens for a reason—even our failure. The disciples fail and think “if only.” Jesus acts as if there is no “if only.” So live your life, like you read a parable. Pay attention, expect confusion, always seek the meaning and surrender your meaning to the Author’s meaning. Jesus is the meaning of your life—your story, past, present, and future. Jesus is the meaning and you are the meaning—the true and eternal you. Jesus is the blood red moon.
