I believe God’s love is like the Butterfly Effect, a theory by a guy named Edward Lorenz.

It suggests that everything is connected.

The Butterfly Effect goes something like this; if a butterfly moves its wings on one side of the planet; that small movement of air may well be the cause of powerful winds on the other side of the planet.

God’s love has been like that in my life. He comes in the gentle whisperings of the butterfly wings, always and only saying one thing, “Jason, I love you, do you believe me?”

“I have learned that this journey we are all on is about one simple thing, believing He loves us.”

I have learned that this journey we are all on is about one simple thing, believing He loves us. My surrender or agreement with this thought has become the powerful winds of change in my life.

There are two kinds of surrender, one is forced and one is voluntary. Love never forces, Love only whispers “I love you” over and over until we begin to believe Him.

If you want to break down the Christian faith, it’s simply this; we exist to become sure in His Love. Faith is simply our “yes” response to the question, “I love you, do you believe me?”

And when we believe He is love, when we surrender, we experience the power of His love. A love that transforms, a love that answers every question that aches in the heart of humanity.

May you know both intimacy and the power of His great affection today.

ROD WILLIAMS / UNION WITH DISTINCTION

ROD WILLIAMS / UNION WITH DISTINCTION

Union, a Triune God, mutual indwelling others-centered love (perichoresis) approaching scripture to discover Jesus, and communion are some of the themes Rod Williams dives into. What if “all” means “all” and God isn’t distant? There is no distance, no separation in God and this conversation is a beautiful invitation to awaken to that discovery and our union with Him.

Religion vs. Grace

Religion vs. Grace

“Christianity is not a religion: it is the proclamation of the end of religion. Religion is a human activity dedicated to the job of reconciling God to humanity and humanity to itself. The gospel, however – the good news of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, is the astonishing announcement that God has done the whole work of reconciliation without a scrap of human assistance. It is the bizarre proclamation that religion is over – period!” Writes F. Robert Capon.
