“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the greatness of his government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David’s throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. The zeal of the Lord Almighty will accomplish this.”
Do you ever find it hard to believe that grand passionate gestures are real? Our culture loves creating music, movies, and stories around big gestures, yet when it comes to our own life and our relationship with God, it can be hard to accept the greatest passionate love gesture of all: that God sent His Son to earth in order to be closer to us. When it comes to the passionate love of God, however, it isn't just this huge gesture that is important, but all the little daily moments where God is actively loving us.
Maybe you have a hard time believing the greatest love gesture that God gave in sending his son to earth. But can you believe that beyond the story of Jesus coming to earth, that he is daily showing us his insanely passionate love for us in small ways.
