Blessed are You, O’LORD our G_d, King of the universe, Creator of all things that You seek our reconciliation and redemption. That You pursue us through our brokenness. That You see past our imperfections.
Blessed are You, O’LORD our G_d, King of the universe, Creator of all things that You view us as a potential bride. That You seek a oneness with us. That You are our kinsman redeemer, rescuer, and savior. You are good!
I’ve been feeling a little unsettled lately as the arguments rage in the media over the reality of hell…as if, a G_d-life is not worth pursuing in its own right – without some threat of eternal torture for denying it!
I’m not trying to enter the debate over hell – rather I want to begin the discussion about the beauty, peace, and love that IS a G_d-life. I don’t need a shotgun wedding to Jesus – Jesus is worth marrying because of the beauty of life that He offers…not because if I don’t marry Him the coroner’s office will be digging hell pellets out of my corpse.
Do you find the G_d-life good, wonderful, beautiful, and full of peace? Or do you only live it because the alternative smells of sulfur?
