Love God and Do What You Want

People want to hear the Good News but they dread the Good News. I don’t know why they dread it so much but they do. We are afraid of it. We are afraid of really being forgiven and being free. It’s very strange.

Robert F. Capon

What is it about freedom that really excites and scares us?

Spill or How To Make The Messiest Mess You Can

There are some amazing things that take place when you recognize your union with Christ. You begin to notice that love comes when you least expect it, and flows to the most unlikely of suspects. Instead of throwing insults, you find yourself throwing hugs.

Benjamin Dunn, The Happy Gospel

Lord, knows this is something that needs to work deeper in me. Love that overflows. Love that oozes. Love that spills out.

Jesus was the ultimate pro at being love to those He encountered. It’s easy to think that it was because He was “Jesus”. I think that’s a cop-out. I think He was so successful at loving people because He didn’t have to try. I think it was because He was just being Himself. He was just as real and true to himself with the prostitute and leper as He was with the pharisee and self-righteous.

Dear friends, let’s love each other, because love is from God, and everyone who loves is born from God and knows God. The person who doesn’t love does not know God, because God is love. This is how the love of God is revealed to us: God has sent his only Son into the world so that we can live through him. This is love: it is not that we loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son as the sacrifice that deals with our sins.
1 John 4:7-10 CEB

I want to share a love that comes from connection, not just choice.
I want to express a love that comes from depth, and not just proximity.
I want to give a love that comes from desire, not just duty.
