Walk in The Way of The Lord

The Father’s love runs deep.

The vastness of the ocean cannot compare to the depth of the love our Lord has for us.

The majestic mountains are mere foothills and cannot stand against the immensity of the love of our God.

The spans of the universe is miniscule when set up against the intensity of the love that Jesus held on the cross.

1 Peter 2:24 NIV

“He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by his wounds you have been healed.”

Walking through life, we often feel loveless. It’s mostly based on what we’re receiving, but sometimes it’s what we’re expelling. Disdain, disappointment, and self-doubt all play a role in the amount of love going in and out. We can’t keep up with demands and others can’t find time to pour into us. We are at a loss so we just have discontent.

There’s a better way, one that was offered upon a tree. It is an example that enables us to toss aside all of our hang-ups and live loved.

Ephesians 5:1-2

Follow God’s example, therefore, as dearly loved children and walk in the way of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.

Living out the depth of the Lord’s love for all to see is truly the meaning of being a Christian. To walk in love is a testament to who Jesus is and what He has done for mankind. Living in the freedom that was given to us shows the profoundness of His love. Words cannot attain enough understanding to the sacrifice made for mankind.

Live loved, out loud and without abandon. No longer make excuses for executing haughtiness. We are made for more.

  1. I’ve never put the pieces together before that self doubt hampers the giving and receiving of love but it makes so much sense! Your writing always challenges me in a good way to think about things differently and more deeply. Thanks!

  2. Life can seem a prison cell,
    cold room without a door,
    a spiritless and lonely hell,
    but we were made for more.
    Life can seem a ighting ring
    where we face the matador
    and only carrion-kites take wing
    but we were made for more.
    Life may seem the jungle’s law
    where always we keep score,
    avarice in tooth and claw
    but we were made for more.
    When we hear Judah’s Lion roar,
    we find what we’re made for.

  3. This one line has been in my thoughts for several days so to see it here, spoke deeply to my heart once again: “We are made for more.” May this song bless you as it has me: https://youtu.be/kMBQaoskmdQ
