Enjoy Life, Enjoy God

Saul of Tarsus meets Jesus in blinding light on a road in Syria. Moses encounters God in a burning bush and is warned not to look on God's presence.

This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another. No one has ever seen God, but if we love one another, God lives in us and his love is made complete in us.
- 1 John 4:10-12 TNIV

My kids tells me, "Dad, that's sappy, cheesy!" Often they speak of love, and love-talk. Read those words above again. That sappy? Because it surely is about love! But it's gutsy, it's hard work, and in Christ's Spirit at work in us, we can do it; we are called to do it. Ain't nothing sappy or cheesy about that kind of love.

In doing so, guess what, we get a glimpse of God. We see God when we love one another.
