“Greater love has no man than this…”

Sunrise.  Sunset.

Water… and the laughter of children before the age of accountability. Pure innocence.

The smile from an old person whose outward appearance long ago began to belie the vitality of their heart. At times I can pass a person and almost perceive the tipping point in their life, when their inward strength has superseded their outward vigor.  These gazes touch my heart most deeply. I want to grab hold of their leg and look up at them on my knees…

” I see you…”

They need to know there is a Redeemer and a Father who carried the greatest of all unfathomable pains… for them.

To save another child’s life as one being snatched from the fire of hell itself… that honor is beyond my deserving. Its all about love. Nothing more and nothing less. My Dad in heaven has entrusted those housed in frail vessels of honor to hunt down the nomadic sons and daughters of His kingdom. Would someone do that for my own children? Out there, just past the shroud of dusk…out there where it is so dry and dusty and bleak. Would someone just bring them a cup of cold water?

I think there are some. Yes… there are. I know some such people. They are my brother’s keepers. And this too is love.

Of all the things I shall miss though, it will be the feeling of a gentle breeze on my face, that cools me and dries all tears after a good, cleansing release when my heart can no longer contain a pain. The grass is never so soft, nor the sky so blue, nor the rain so refreshing. To me, there is nothing more beautiful than perceiving the Hand of Love on my heart once I have let go and let Him…

“Feed my sheep.”

“Its a hell of a thing… loving this life so much and knowing I don’t belong here… knowing this is not my home and that the world is not even worthy of His redeemed. (Heb 11:38)

Love mingled with pain. I shall miss this the most…

Or will I?

“And they had all things in common…”

There is a Great Reconciliation that the body of Christ is destined for in these days. The shofar has been blown and His captains are being called to their posts.

Three basic areas need to be restored to the body of Christ for this to occur in our generation.

  1. Love for each other
  2. Unity
  3. Seeking Christ

I hesitated to start this study. Not because I did not want to, but because there is so much to discuss on the topic of Reconciliation in the Body. I was overwhelmed with where to begin.

The enemy has been extremely successful in keeping us divided, and a kingdom divided cannot stand. The garment of this nation is unraveling at its very core. The pattern that God designed for this country is a tapestry that read “One Nation Under God.” The very purpose of this nation’s existence is  being shaken down to the foundations. The only thing that separates this nation from the rubble of all prior nations that reject God is the church. The future of this nation, and her ultimate place in the times ahead, depends not on politics, or commerce, or the remnants of the US dollar. The future of our nation is in the hands of the church.

And we are not prepared.

For years now the Lord has been quietly teaching and preparing my heart to speak along these lines. Mostly through trials and pain, in the midst of His assuring Voice letting me know its all going to be alright. I am honored to have experienced tremendous rejection and scorn in the body of Christ as well as deep love and the blessing of true fellowship with those who seek intimacy with our Redeemer.  I am honored to share with you at this time.

But how to begin?  As is often the case when I lose my way, the Lord always leads me…

Back to the beginning…
