Improvisation is defined as being “a creation spoken or written or composed extemporaneously (without prior preparation).”
It is those created works which happen, unexpectedly, that truly excite the human spirit within me. When you have no expectations you will always live in a place of adventure and in a world where all things are possible. The only thing I do expect, is that life will continuously get better, because of the eternal gift of life I’ve received which only grows with fruit. This afternoon I was reading the book of Colossians which said “…the word of the truth of the gospel; which has come to you, as it is in all the world; and brings forth fruit, as it does also in you, since the day you heard of it, and knew the grace of God in truth.”
As I pondered this written word I began to consider that once truly knowing the grace of God, our lives begin to produce fruit, which is love, joy, peace, patience, etc. The relationship between grace and what we produce in our lives is of great interest to me. The system of this world behaves in a way that is opposing to grace in order to produce a good work. Many believe that if we punish bad behavior people will discontinue behaving badly. However, grace looks upon bad behavior not merely as a superficial action, but a symptom of something deeper within the heart – which only grace itself has the power to change.
