Extremes - October 25, 2005

"(Nothing) will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord." Romans 8:38-39

Clear in my memory is a dog-eared Mother Goose book of nursery rhymes. Thinking back, I can not imagine what was so interesting and intriguing that my sister and I would want to hear them read over and over to us. Remember this one? "There was a little girl and she had a little curl, right in the middle of her forehead. And when she was good she was very, very good, and when she was bad she was horrid."

Most of the time, I live in the middle ground, not in the extremes. When I am kind, generous, patient, and honest, that's great. However, when I have an adult-sized temper tantrum and am a creep, at the very least, those are the times I need to know I am still loved.

Peter seems to be a good example of extremes. He was a passionate, blustery fisherman, and one of the guys in Jesus' inner circle. It is recorded in the Bible that he demonstrated extreme faith and walked on the water to go to Jesus. Conversely, he showed the opposite kind of faith, when he denied knowing Jesus, at a time when he could have also been taken captive and maybe tortured and killed.

There is someone who FOREVER loves us, no matter what. He will NEVER leave us, NEVER not love us. Never. Ever. He is the Lord of Lords, and His name is Jesus.

That is good news.
