Love’s Expression

February 26, 2010

I spent eight years in a major Evangelical movement. They were for the most part, good years for me. I grew tremendously and healed from major trauma. It was because the focus of that body was on the the tender aspects of Jesus. But the more I grew, I started being disquieted regarding what seemed an unbalanced view of Him. Based in the notion that He is mainly positive and doesn’t go around upsetting people’s apple carts, it didn’t appear the well-rounded Jesus we see in the Bible.

Now don’t get me wrong, I don’t run around longing for the warrior side of Jesus to be expressed to me or to those whom I care about. But, He is that and more. And in these last days in which we are living, it is vital that the Bride know that. Preferably before He proves the point by some manifest means, as he warned the seven churches in Asia.

So the next time you’re in that place of intimate worship where it seems you’re sitting in His lap with your head against His breast, meditate on the fact that it’s a Lion’s heartbeat that you’re listening to. Then let the awe of that and who He fully is, take you to a new and deeper place in Him.

    Edit: “… Lion’s purr …” changed to “… Lion’s heartbeat …”, as I’d taken a bit of literary license originally, in that Lion’s don’t purr.
