Sometimes pilots can become disoriented when flying upside down an when they think they are pulling up they crash the plan into the ground. Dallas Willard proposes that life outside the Kingdom is like flying a plane upside down, while we think we are flying rightside up. It's a dangerous distortion of reality. The world that we consider to be the "real world" actually disorients the life God intends us to have inside the Kingdom. Jesus in the Sermon on the Mount teaches us how to fly through this life rightside up instead of upside down. Do you want to live your life rightside up instead of Upside down?Jesus says we can go through this life rightside up and he will teach us how to do that. The question is: are we teachable?

In the story of the beheading of John the Baptist and in Jesus' response to the news, Matthew invites us into the Garden of Gethsemane to struggle out the implications of the will of God in our own life. Where will we align ourselves? Will we honor and believe the powers of this world, and thus, dishonor Jesus with our lack of faith? Will we honor King Jesus with our faith in him, laying down our life for him, for the truth and glory of Gospel banking everything that Jesus is our only hope.
