“…love by its nature seeks union. With the grace of recognition comes the awesome and alarming awareness that Jesus, the incarnation of the furious longing of God, wants more than a close relationship with you and me; He seeks nothing less than union.” ~ Brennan Manning, “The Furious Longing of God,” p. 68.
What if we lived like this statement is true?
What if the whole point of our creation is to be loved by Love Himself, to be one with Him?
What if we embraced the Truth of Song of Solomon 7:10 (NASB):
“I am my beloved’s,
And his desire is for me.”
What if we truly believed we are the beloved of God and He doesn’t just want to meet us and have a casual friendship, He truly DESIRES us?
What if we lived naked and unashamed? No hiding, no covering up, no fig leaves.
What if we lived in deep, abiding, restful union with Christ?
What if this is abundant, reigning life?
What if this is what it means to be Fully Alive?
