The glorious story

I am pretty exhausted. It was a really good day though. We ended up moving a pretty big pile of rock, junk and gravel as part of our work. Tomorrow we continue with that project so that will be either a lot of fun or a challenge, depending on how sore I wake up from today’s excursion.

I don’t know what else to say about today. I feel so connected and whole. I was definitely not connected and whole the last time I was here. There used to be so much fear in my life.  Perfect love has been casting that out.

I am thinking about that whole story. It is a pretty crazy one. Today I sat out on a balcony and went over Romans. I was at the foot of a great, big mountain. There were great, big palm trees next to the balcony. And as I went over Romans 1, I could picture it all. Nature seemed really inspiring and grand, but it didn’t seem quite worth worshipping. Still a part of me felt it could relate to the people in Kings and Chronicles, who kept worshipping on top of high places.

Then as I went through the story, nature’s beauty paled in comparison to the gospel message. The gospel message and the fact that God chose to inhabit me as His temple seemed so much more glorious. I continually feel like I am finally understanding the gospel message for the first time in my life. It is truly a pleasure.

“For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.” – Romans 1
