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?

Deliver Us from Obligation

What an honor to go where he leads, to hear that voice that comes with inspiration and to recognize where it came from. A few years ago, I would have thought the voice in my heart was the voice of laziness. I mean, of course, I don’t want to work..but I should right? WRONG! I do what my Father inspires me to do, and where He leads, I follow. It’s not the other way around even though He is faithful to follow me with His love no matter what.

Be Loved.

The decision to love is not the goal of a Christian. The goal is to know His love and to become surer each day.

But What About Sin?

Yes, sin is a big deal, and our job as Christians is to remove the condemnation that is associated with it, not add to it. We are invited to, like Christ, release kindness, and walk people into freedom. “There is, therefore, no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus…” (Rom 8:1) That’s us! And I would add, ‘therefore there should be no condemnation from those who are in Christ Jesus.’ We can’t give away what we don’t have…

The Whole Story is the True Story

To describe God as in control is an earthbound perspective, it’s’ human reasoning at best, while it may be an accurate assessment from where we are standing, it not the truth, at least, not the truth that sets us free. Control is an immature and powerless way to describe God,

Bob Mumford was a man of God. I knew this because my dad told me so. My dad was a man of God himself, this I knew first hand. So if anyone would know, it would be him. Bob is a gifted speaker, a storyteller with incredible revelation directly from heaven. But as a kid, more importantly, Bob was funny.

Jesus, Baseball, and Shame

Here’s the thing, if we believe God is about control, it affects everything. Every experience and encounter is filtered through the insecurity of our relationship with a small God. A control-based perspective of God is evidenced by the subtle anxiety we experience in our heart when the furnace breaks down, to the blatant sense of righteousness when a rapist gets the death penalty.
