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?

My Interview On 100 Huntley Street

100 Huntley Street is Canada’s longest running daily talk show. They tell stories of people who have had life-changing encounters with God – whether they be world leaders, celebrities, sports figures or everyday people and late last year I got to go on the show.  

Meet the Father

I would like to suggest that our questions, longing, insecurity, and identity are forever answered, settled, satisfied, and secured in our revelation of God as Father.

Literal Inerrancy and Child Sacrifice?

For years a literal, inerrant approach to scripture had me reading this story and wrestling with the nature of God’s goodness instead of the nature of man’s fallen thinking.

As though a good god is a god who would partner with the idea of child sacrifice to, in some way, test his kids. As though Abrahams’s demonic belief in child sacrifice is meant to define what God is like instead of what Abraham was like; what a fallen mindset is like, what we, humanity, are capable of attributing to the nature of God…

SHEILA GREGOIRE / THE GREAT SEX RESCUE

Intimacy within marriage, the connection between intimacy and mutuality, the nature of trust, the definition of sex, addressing transactional vs relational thinking, dismantling obligation, addressing objectification and broken ideologies developed from Eph 5:22, “Wives submit to your husbands…” Sheila Gregoire practically rethinks sex so husbands and wives can experience intimacy, joy, and deeper connection.

Living Powerfully Generous: Eggos and Juice Boxes

Generous giving is our birthright. It’s a partnership with our Father’s heart. It always further aligns our affections with His.

If God Is Good…

If I type into Google’s search bar, “If God is good…” Google will finish my search with the following suggestions: …Why is there suffering? …why do bad things happen? …why is there evil?
