What If...

 

 

 

 

 

What if God is Love and Love is measureless, infinite.

And what if this measureless Love came to earth as a man and lived in our finite world, a world controlled by measurements.
And what if He met every controlling measurement He encountered. What if He answered every need, healed every affliction, and in Him, every broken heart could be made whole?

And then what if He experienced the ultimate control, death. And then what if He revealed that perfect Love is more powerful than death by rising from the grave? What if He had all authority over the finality of control?

What if Love was the most powerful force on the planet, what if all authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Love?

And what if the power and authority of love is the true narrative by which we are to live our story; the true language we are born to speak, the true lens by which we are meant to perceive our every experience? What if Love is the truth that sets us free from every insecurity of control?

And what if we made the discovery of this perfect Love the pursuit of our faith?

Love, an infinitely beautiful revelation.

Love, it holds the stars in the sky and is the breath in our lungs. It’s the force of gravity weighing our feet to earth, and what lifts the sparrow to flight.

Love, it sets free, and it redeems, and it restores, and it transforms, sinners to saints and slaves to sons.

Love, it redeems the worst of tragedy and heals the ravaged heart.

Love, it restores sight to the blind, cleanses disease, feeds the hungry, clothes the poor, raises the dead!

Love, it looks like heaven, measureless in scope, and here, now.

Love, it knows no end, no boundaries, no lack. And it trumps every controlling need.

Love, it has hands and feet, you and me; we are becoming like Him!

What if we began to discover God as a measureless Love that has all authority and is the most powerful revelation on the planet but never controls.

What if we live, move and have our being to grow sure in Love and to become love?

Wouldn’t that be awesome?

From Sinner to Saint: Prone To Love…

Jesus never once was “prone to wander” or “prone to leave the God He loved.” He came to earth to settle that exact issue once and for all. He came to set us free that we too might see, encounter, and become love; that we might be transformed from prone to wander to prone to love Him!

Becoming Sure…

I would like to suggest that the question of identity is not only the theme of Jesus’ story but it’s ours as well.  The good news is, Jesus was sure in His identity and because of this, we can also become sure in ours…

Mercy and Grace

Jesus didn’t just come to set us free from sin; He came to empower us into righteousness. He didn’t just reveal the Father in all His mercy, He revealed the Father in all His grace. Jesus never released mercy without following up with grace. In fact, mercy is incomplete without it.

The Gas Attendant Job: And Nine Other Reasons Not To Go To Bible College

When I gave Jesus my life, He promised He would always be with me. Through the years this promise followed me like a lovely ghost. I encountered it in a song, in a book. I dreamed it. I watched it in a movie; I heard it from the pulpit. It was a gradual unwinding, a realization of who God is, that He lived in me and that He is good. He is always good.

What’s He Like

If a person believes punishment is in God’s nature, that God pulls triggers after we die, that hell is His final act of eternal separation, then simply asking the question “Can we be saved when we die?” is sacrilege and attempting to answer, sheer heretical lunacy…

Before You Publish That Controversial Article

A well-known Christian fella wrote an article within a week of the tragedy of Robin Williams’s death.
His approach was that of the veteran blogger “guardian of truth.” His title was catchy with just the right amount of controversy. His content was fair and boasted compassion without ever delivering. At least, that was my take.
