God’s love…an unending rope

July 3, 2007

I love seeing God work. On Sunday I taught a lesson to the youth at my church on Restoration of relationships. This followed a lesson on living honestly from last week, a lesson that was taught by someone else.

First, I was able to take the lesson from last week and build on it which reinforced what was taught. The part that I was able to build upon involved the use of rope to symbolize the relationship we have with someone.

As I studied the restoration of relationships last week I came to a point of believing that to have restoration in our relationships that are broken comes down to two points, the greatest two commandments: Love God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength, and Love your neighbor as yourself.

One of the youth asked, “How we can love others if we are loving God with all we have and are?” As I  described the relationship with God and how it is like an unending rope that just keeps pouring out and filling us up one of the youth picked up the end and started passing it down the line. Before I was done answering the rope had traveled around the circle and everyone was connected to it. God’s love had just shown itself as a visual image that made us all pause and acknowledge what had just happened.

How does God show you that He is working? Are you overlooking something he is trying to show you? Maybe you need to stop and pause to take in something that just happened, or pause to remember something you observed this week. Life can be hectic and times, but don’t forget to slow down enough to take God in.

    Love that last line. Often overlooked and under-rated – slowing down and taking God in.
