love is a theme of popularity now
yet before love became fashion’s new accessory
it was God’s original style
love is not going to just show up in the fall fashion lineup
love was before the heavens were formed
love is deep and expansive
full of real passion
love left all to save all
love lost His life
wrung out His blood His love
What sort of act was this? Let’s look at the definition of wring.
To extract (liquid) by twisting or compressing. Often used with out.
the thirsting heart with abundant life
Father I pray that you would reveal by your Holy Spirit your nature. Hold her hand. Grip his heart. Stir the internal passion of real transparent vivid colorful breathtaking awe.
His word to drink in…
Romans 11:33 Have you ever come on anything quite like this extravagant generosity of God, this deep, deep wisdom? It’s way over our heads. We’ll never figure it out.34 Is there anyone around who can explain God? Anyone smart enough to tell him what to do?35 Anyone who has done him such a huge favor that God has to ask his advice?36 Everything comes from him; Everything happens through him; Everything ends up in him. Always glory! Always praise! Yes. Yes. Yes.
God’s Spirit, the life giving water Jesus shared with the woman at the well in John 4 could read “drink once never thirst”…
and then rightfully claim “please note this is source water and supplies constant refilling” Attach a warning label this water will spill over onto everyone you meet with no regard to race, creed, color, economic status or nationality.
God’s loyal love couldn’t have run out, his merciful love couldn’t have dried up.
When we drink this life giving water of God’s Spirit we are nourished on every level- for it comes from the deepest places within God’s nature. It is the essence of all living.
soul saved do pray with me
open my heart and don’t stop there
open my hands
move my life with your love
Spirit lead me where love alone can take me
where I would not go apart from love
soul unaware of HIS love pray with me
God I need this life giving love
I will drink it in full
till love is who I know and who I am
no more hating and being hated
redefine my life by your Son Jesus
whatever that looks like I trust it will be good
I surrender this living
eating drinking breathing running resting creating
the whole of my life
to your purpose and plan
