There are people who try and try and work so very hard to figure out each and every mystery with logic and precision and when the rains of life come it all gets washed away or they hang onto their ideas with crusty bitterness. Then there are others for whom mysteries like LOVE are lived in, experienced, appreciated but don’t have to have all the parameters or perimeters known. Based on my life experience the second one is the Only one for a Life worth living.
“Jesus answered: “Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?” – John 14:9
How could anyone hang out with The Son of The Living God and Not know God? Does it still happen today? How does religion play a role in keeping people from God?
“God Is Love” but most religious groups teach “exclusionary like” as opposed to inclusionary Love like Jesus lived and lives every moment.
The greatest challenges in the world today desperatly need The Love that Jesus presented, lived day to day and God Freely offers But most never see it. When Jesus walked the earth in human form there was Not a single being for whom He didn’t show Love, Perfect Love that drove out All fear. Granted it was much easier for Him to Love “the least of these” as opposed to the pious religious group – same is true today, but He Loved All even those who “should” have been stoned.
And yet somehow even those who walked for years with Him, didn’t know what God was all about. Is it any wonder why wars, murder and all manner of pain and hurt are done in the name of God?
In this new series, “Knowing LOVE” we hope to shed some light on God, resting in His mystery and Living Life GraceFully because of it. I hope you will join me in this journey.
