Loves Core … Growth
Growing for the slaves leaving Egypt was an ever occurring opportunity to develop Rest (Faith) in an unseen God Who’s Goodness was beyond human possibilities. The interesting thing is that even though they saw The Red Sea part, doubt was sure to come back repeatedly and quickly.
“So they asked him, “What sign then will you give that we may see it and believe you? What will you do?” … John 6:30
Growing Loves Core is Resting in The Goodness that is beyond Any goodness that man could create or conceive even when all the signs and evidence point to the exact opposite.
“Our ancestors ate the manna in the wilderness; as it is written: ‘He gave them bread from heaven to eat.‘”. John 6:31
Resting … Resting … Faith Is Resting … and The Who that we Rest in will determine our quality of life.
If we Rest in a god of condemnation and judgement our life will be fear based with depression and guilt or ego and arrogance as the constant disposition.
If we Rest in The God Who Is Perfect Love our life will be a growing fearless journey of acceptance of all others, gratefulness for Who and What God Is and a humility based on the understanding that Only The One “Perfect Sacrifice” made all the Beauty of this “Gift Beyond Compare” possible.
The choice for what you Rest in is yours … and so are the results.
