For many Americans, today is a memorable day because of the events from 2001. I suspect that many of us remember where we were & what we were doing when the two planes flew into the World Trade Center in NYC. There are probably several other monumental events in your life that various triggers that evoke various memories & feelings.
While it’s important to keep these national events memorialized, let’s never trivialize the eternal work that Jesus does in our lives. His work includes not only our eternal salvation, but also the daily experience we can have with God’s genuine love not only to us, but also through us. Let’s be certain to remember God’s continuing work in our lives, so that God can express genuine love through us to the people around us! The world is living in a continual state of 911, making emergency calls that only God’s genuine love can answer & resolve!
Over the weekend, I tried to make chili (a good Autumn meal) & it was entirely a catastrophe: the beans didn’t cook, the meat was yucky, it was flavorless & even my kids were warning each other about eating what they perceived to be the borderline poison and life-threatening chili. I tried to fix it with more spices and seasoning, which only made it even worse – so salty that it could be a formaldahyde substitute. To which my strategy was to add potatoes & hopefully soak up the overkill salt.
Hmmmmmmmm – obviously, it’s easy to overdo something good.
In relation to God, let’s have our eyes wide open that too much God will create some important casaulties. Too much God in your life will ruin deception, insecurity, depression, pride and many other things that need to be wrecked 🙂
