The one essential thing

I hope you will read my blog each week day this Lent season! Posts are usually short — big plus, right?

The essential thing upon which most everything I write is based, is the following idea, so if you keep it in mind going forward, it may inform some of the mad stuff I say:

“God is love (1 John 4:8 and 4:16, etc.) and you are His beloved child (Galatians 4:6, Romans 8:15, etc.).”

This is really the Gospel, the Good News, and yet I feel like I didn’t really begin to understand it until I was way into my 40’s — I would like to save other people the trouble and show you what a game-changer it is when you really begin to believe this and accept its many wonderful ramifications.

Or, if you’re already living in this wonderful truth, maybe my thoughts will bring you even more reason to rejoice. I’ve found that God’s love is endless as an ocean, and every time you think you’ve reached the deepest depth, some wonderful new vista opens below, and down you dive into more amazing delight than you could have imagined.

So, all are welcome to come along. It’s all Jesus Jesus Jesus, Love Love Love from here on out. Welcome to Lent!
