Ordinary People doing Extraordinary Things
Thus says the Lord: “Stand by the roads, and look, and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is; and walk in it, and find rest for your souls. But they said, ‘We will not walk in it.’ Jeremiah 6:16 ESV
Noli me Tangere (touch me not)! is the Latin version of a phrase spoken according to John 20:17, by Jesus to Mary of Magdalene, when she recognized him after his resurrection. In the Greek for a better translation means (cease holding on to me)!!!
Sometimes we hold on to the past as it holds us from our future. Mary of Magdalene had trouble letting go of the physical Jesus she once knew. We must let go of our past and the things we remember to be comfortable and allow God to transform us into who he has predestined us to be.
