Life is a response to love

Take the good things you know to be true of God: creativity, relationships, love, joy, beauty, etc...

He has enjoyed all of these things with himself (i.e. Jesus and the Holy Spirit) for ALL past eternity and 

A) he initially created us to enjoy these things with him &

B) when we spat on it, he ran to meet us and invited us back in, giving us everything!

Huh? Really?

-To us older brothers, he says, "What're you waiting for?! You're missing the point, get in here where there is dancing and feasting and love!"

Knowing this provokes me to live in response to his love, joy, and creativity. But "the freedom of living loved is not the sort of thing that happens overnight." 

So DIG DEEP into the character of God, rest in it and watch your life change! You'll find ways to stir affections for Jesus in the world around you...
