Opening Our Eyes.

We, humans, find it difficult to trust. We learn that if it is too good to be true, then it probably is and we should be cynical. But, as Rob Bell says, God gives us the miraculous offer of love:

“Jesus invites us to trust that the love we fear is too good to be true is actually good enough to be true. It’s written in one of John’s letters in the scriptures that “what we will be has not yet been made known.”

Jesus invites us to become, to be drawn into this love as it shapes us and forms us and takes over every square inch of our lives. Jesus calls us to repent, to have our minds and hearts transformed so that we see everything differently.

This is not a love that we study or talk about from a distance. This is a love that affects us, not with a warm cozy feeling, but by opening our eyes, hearts and very being to the eternal.
