Lately, I have been warring with religion. I don’t like the disconnect religion has created between believers. I disagree with the way we treat people who have a different belief or don’t fit into the rules and regulations placed on the category of “Christian.” Where is the love in any of that? Where is God? Where does it say to talk about those who are different from you? Where is it written to stop loving and communicating with someone because they didn’t fit into the idea you created for them?
Sitting in church, God gave me a word. Its simple and easy to understand. I could go into explaining each line, but I won’t because I feel like that is unnecessary. Just read it with an open mind and an open heart.
“Don’t you know that I am bigger than you
Don’t you know that I am bigger than your problems
Don’t you know that I am bigger than your denominations
Don’t you know the I am bigger than the rules you place on yourself or My people
Don’t you know that I am bigger than your prejudice
Don’t you know that I am bigger than your sin
Don’t you know that I am God
Stop trying to place Me in a box
Stop trying to place Me within the limits of your mind, the limits of your imagination
I am greater than all of that
I am greater
I am God”
You will know I am a believer and a follower of Christ, because when you look at me you will see love. In my actions and in my words I will exude it.
If I have ever done or said anything to anyone that was not out of love, I am sorry. Please forgive me. If I ever wish to be anything, I wish to be an example of His love.
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
