Musings at the Church Christmas Concert

God took His love, and made the Infinite as small as a

...and wrapped it in flesh
(bruisable, betrayable flesh)
And lived His love among us


we ripped at the packaging and
tore open the gift...

only to find
and forgiveness inside.

He does not and will not take away
our will, in order to turn us into
automatons or

but He gives us the freedom to choose...
and when we chose

He set Himself in the middle of our path,
bent on destruction
and willingly received the brunt of our choice of
"not God"
canceling out all our hurts, and hurtings
("by his stripes...")

to present us with a new way ("I am the Way...")
With all our errors forgiven
and erased
and placed in our hands the
Freedom to do the same.

To give out of the abundance of what
we've been given
and not be black holes
of need

To love with the same abandon
To be an oasis of safety
in a very
unsafe world.

"For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways, declares the LORD.For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.

Isaiah 55:9-10
Oh God. Help me to love like You do.
