What love looks like

In the last two posts I’ve talked about motivation and how we are the divine manifestation of love in this reality.  We are love, the essence and substance and product of love.  We are what other-centered, unconditional love looks like.  God, being love, expressed Himself as love to become us.  In doing so, He took…

Show me your glory…kabowd

And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.  (2 Cor 3:18, NIV) Do you like Christmas trees?  Do you like a really decked out Christmas tree with all the trimmings?  Filled with cliché for…

Where is my Hell!?!?

Have you ever been late to a party or something you had been looking forward to?  You know the scene.  You leave early so you can get a good parking spot.  You hit every light perfectly and your mind is racing with anticipation.  Then you turn the corner and “what?”  There are cars parked everywhere.…

The inside job – part two

This journey we are on in the advancing Kingdom of God is unique to each of us.  As a matter of fact I am finding more and more that when I hang onto a “this must be the only truth” idea…well God has another idea.  The infinite Grace He has for us should be our…
