Whole Human Beings

Feb 1, 2013

I’m convinced that what Jesus ultimately showed us through his life was something far greater than simply how to be better Christians or how to live better, more moral lives.  What I think we see (and in such a profound, yet simple way) was a perfect picture of what it looks like when one embraces and lives in the fullness of who God created them in His image to be.  

Fully divine and fully human.  

Isn’t this the ultimate task of our lives?  To embrace and live in the fullness of both?  

As a pastor, I believe that the best thing my life could ever be about is helping people live in the fullness of who God created them to be – whole human beings.

    It is a very moving experience to dig extremely deep and connect with God, either by yourself in prayer, or with someone in conversation. Although there are times when I think I am living close to the fullness of God, I hear Him point to areas where I should target…It is so enjoyable to connect with God in this way, all the time remembering that He expects us to have shortcomings, but we shall not be afraid to confront them…Also, remembering that He loves us and can laugh with us at those shortcomings, because we are human, and He does have a wonderful sense of humor. God loves, laughs, cries and embraces all of us…embracing Him back is joyful!
    CHOOSE LOVE NOT FEAR…AND BE WHOLE SPIRITUALLY, EMOTIONALLY, PHYSICALLY, AND SOCIALLY!

    Beautiful words Curt. You are right, there are always areas to target. Although, I’m starting to understand it as more of a “waking up” to who we ALREADY are – our TRUE selves. Good stuff… Thanks for leaving a note. -SH
