I said that our first, if not only desire, is love. Love in the modern sense has lost its meaning, for we say ‘I love chocolates, I love swimming, I love the movies…’, but this is not the love I’m talking about.
The fulfilment of each desire is imprisoned by choice. You have to conquer fear and choose to love. The first step of love is a step of faith – against all you choose to love…
Choose to dream dreams without limitations. Let your mind go… invite Him along with you and just go. We were taught to rather be safe than sorry… safe for who… sorry for what… ‘…in Him we live and move and have our being‘ (Acts 17:28).
We should dream without limits and allow Christ Jesus to be our boundaries. In living love with out limits and dreams without limits we are truly free and truly alive! The only way to have no limits is to live and move in Him. I know this ‘in Him’ concept is not that easy to understand and sometimes impossible to comprehend, but never the less we are living in Him, why not let go of everything except Him. Sure we will lose some things, but some things are worth loosing…
True freedom is to know Christ Jesus as your only boundaries!!! The secret of this knowledge is found in love… It is a love incomprehensible if you are not found in Him. This is confusing to the human mind, but it is so true… only love bring entrance and only inside love it is known…
This love of God for the world does not withdraw from a reality into noble souls detached from the world, but experiences and suffers the reality of the world in the harshest possible fashion. The world takes out its rage on the body of Jesus Christ. But he, tormented, forgives the world its sins. Thus does reconciliation come about.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer Meditations on the Cross
Dion once wrote that this love is
…getting to know people, and searching for God’s words of challenge and encouragement for their lives (and mine)… I longed to hear what God would have me say to them, and then I would enjoy weaving together words and concepts, parables and pictures that would inspire, encourage, challenge, and even rebuke.
by digitaldion (Dion Forster)
This love never thinks to highly of it self, is patient and kind, does not envy or boast, is not arrogant or rude, does not insist on its own way, isn’t irritable or resentful, does not rejoice in the lie, but rejoices in the truth, bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things and this Love never ends… (1Corinthians 13:4-8.)
This love gathers His people into relationship with Him and one another…
This love is not to be understood, but to be lived!!!
It is not about you or me, but about us, His people! I’ve heard it said that to be totally wrapped-up in God is selfishness, but that is impossible for when we are totally wrapped-up in Him we cannot but love every soul around us.
