Days of Lemt - Day Seven

He's Just Uncontrollable

I'll admit it. I love my church. We have a cool Wednesday night meeting called Clarity. Its supposed to be for middle and high schoolers, but all the Jesus Freaks are just taking it over now, so its pretty uncontrollable.  

During a time of worship, I had this image- how Jesus knows us with this precision because he knows what he made when he made us. And he can completely disarm us when he speaks a word to our hearts because He knows exactly what he made us to reflect, what he made us to respond to... how he shaped us perfectly to fit together with him in certain ways- very specific ways that he whispers to us, and then we're just undone. 

Then... like he didn't just speak the most personal, perfect word, that felt like a secret that no one knew, not even ourselves - he splashes love on us like paint from a bucket splashed up against the wall... followed by more buckets of sloppy, stupid, gushes of paint that cover us and make us slip and fall down in the mess of colors that don't even match.  

What is up with Jesus? He's brilliantly personal and sincere, and careful with your heart like you've never experienced before, and then He's a gusher of laughter and song, spinning over you with love and giggles. How do you explain a Jesus like that? Well, I just did.

1 Peter 4:8 "Most important of all, continue to show deep love for each other, for love covers a multitude of sins."
