“RISE UP OH MEN OF GOD…”
God’s love is not some theoretical, million-miles-away kind of love. It is up in our business. It is raw and fierce and tender and full of joy. “His desire for you and me can best be described as a furious longing,” wrote that warmhearted, clear-sighted Franciscan Brennan Manning.
God’s love burns bright and hot and true. It will never dim. Not ever. Not even a little.
He is consumed; He can’t take his eyes off us (Ps. 34:15). He thinks about us all the time. Not for a second has He ever forgotten even one of us (Isa. 49:16). There are so many thoughts about each of us in His head they can’t be counted (Ps. 40:5). His love for you, for me, is so great that it’s literally immeasurable and unfathomable by our human minds (Eph. 3:17–19).
