This morning my boys were running and jumping and diving into every little bit of snow they could find. They let their imaginations run wild and alternated between being astronauts in space, and their favorite Star Wars characters. They had an amazing time and never once did they worry about what the neighbors were thinking about them. I think Jesus was a lot like that as well.
Having a relationship with a God like this requires that I am willing and prepared to move, serve, minister, care, comfort, challenge, and reconcile with him as he is going about these things himself. My relationship with this Jesus is not static, rather it is a wild, dynamic, flowing experience of the action and activity of God himself.
I thought I’d post the video from my message this past Sunday. We were looking at the life of Joseph and some of the ways he managed to survive a life in the pits.
Our dream seems a little impossible. It’s the kind of dream that you think is a good idea, but it’s never going to fly, but then comes Jesus saying that with God, anything is possible! What are you supposed to do with that? How are you supposed to ignore the calling that God has put on your heart now?
Quite honestly, I think that the grace of God far exceeds anything that we will ever comprehend this side of eternity. I think that the accusing Jesus I met in the recesses of my mind was nothing but a counterfeit. He wasn’t Christ.
