A Journey like No Other
Love started this. Love is propping it up along the way. Love will be the refreshment at the finish line, the finish line of this delightful, hard, perplexing, exhilarating journey we’re all experiencing together. Included among God’s dizzying array of provisions there’s an inescapable infilling, an irradicable impartation, an inexhaustible inventory – of his very own perfectly prodigal* love: a kind of divine Personal Protective Equipment in our fight to survive the pandemic of sin that dogs our every step. Paul says, “Your crucifixion with Christ has severed the tie to this life, and now your true life is hidden away in God in Christ.” (Col. 3:3, The Passion Translation) The focus on ‘in God in Christ’ is our guaranteen. Hallelujah!

*we’ve previously defined ‘prodigal’ as lavishly, wantonly extravagant– an apt definition of the Father’s devotion to all his adopted kids (us).
