What if God is Love and Love is measureless, infinite. And what if this measureless Love came to earth as a man and lived in our finite world, a world controlled by measurements. And what if He met every controlling measurement He encountered. What if He answered every need, healed every affliction, and in Him every broken heart could be made whole?
And then what if He experienced the ultimate control, death. And then what if He revealed that perfect Love is more powerful than death by rising from the grave? What if He had all authority over the finality of control?
What if Love was the most powerful force on the planet, what if all authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Love?
And what if the power and authority of love is the true narrative by which we are to live our story; the true language we are born to speak, the true lens by which we are meant to perceive our every experience? What if Love is the truth that sets us free from every insecurity of control?
And what if we made the discovery of this perfect Love the pursuit of our faith?
Love, an infinitely beautiful revelation.
Love, it holds the stars in the sky and is the breath in our lungs. It's the force of gravity weighing our feet to earth, and what lifts the sparrow to flight.
Love, it sets free, and it redeems, and it restores, and it transforms, sinners to saints and slaves to sons.
Love, it redeems the worst of tragedy and heals the ravaged heart.
Love, it restores sight to the blind, cleanses disease, feeds the hungry, clothes the poor, raises the dead!
Love, it looks like heaven, measureless in scope, and here, now.
Love, it knows no end, no boundaries, no lack. And it trumps every controlling need.
Love, it has hands and feet, you and me; we are becoming like Him!
What if we began to discover God as a measureless Love that has all authority and is the most powerful revelation on the planet but never controls.
What if we live, move and have our being to grow sure in Love and to become love?
Wouldn't that be awesome?
