To The Heart

There's a deep chasm between human-nature and holiness. That chasm was put there when Adam sinned, and that chasm remains there because from the moment we are born, our flesh rules in our lives.

But there's hope. That chasm, which can cause so much despair, was bridged by a loving God. Passionately in love with His creation, He formulated a plan to rescue all of humanity. He gave up His only Son to become perfection, to walk the tight rope that so many people had fallen off of. And when His Son made it to the other side, He was crucified. But the cross that so many thought would end the teachings of this man called Jesus ended up bridging the gap for us all. Now, if we choose to see that cross and what it signifies, we can bound across the chasm to the other side. We can become holy and righteous through the blood of our Savior.

But now what? In all honesty, do we deserve this place of right standing? Not at all, and we never will. But that's the stunning beauty of this whole adventure. We've now made it across the chasm, and we can run straight to our Father's heart.

Religion, though, sees the tight rope and says to all those who have already bounded wonderfully across the separating pit, "We have to walk that rope as well." But how could we?! We're only human! And why would we?? If we've made it across, of course we would want to avoid the chasm AND the other side all together!

So rejoice, because if you have given your life to Jesus, you are now on the other side of that desolate land, having travelled across the chasm into a place of splendor and love. As an Impossibility, don't look back at what human-nature has to offer you. Instead, run. Straight to the heart. Never let religion hold you back.

2 Thessalonians 3:5, "May the Master take you by the hand and lead you along the path of God's love and Christ's endurance."

The heart of our Creator is full of love, compassion, and forgiveness. He desires a deep, intimate relationship with all of us. Don't let rules, regulations, and legalism tie your hands behind your back and force you onto the tight rope!

This is true love, found at the core of our Heavenly Father. As we chase after Him, we will understand more and more about this Romance between Creator and creation. Let your heart be wooed by His glory.

Let your heart be wooed by His heart.
