Learning to lean into this lavish love-gift is the goal of our lifetime journey.
A journey of a thousand-and-one miles,
spanning the centuries
since that word-spark of “Let there BE” first formed our hearts…for His.
The journey leads across the vast expanses of cosmic glory all the way to
“Amen, Come Lord Jesus”.
A thousand-and-one miles and all of this yet… it takes only one glorious step of submission to cross over from our time-bound present dimension
into the timeless and infinitely dimensional love of our Creator.
All because He first loved us.
God is love.
And so we know and rely on the love God has for us.
Whoever lives in love lives in God,
and God in them.
This is how love is made complete among us
so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment:
In this world we are like Jesus.
There is no fear in love.
But perfect love drives out fear,
because fear has to do with punishment.
The one who fears is not made perfect in love.
We love because he first loved us.
1 John 4: 16-19
