Love Covers All

A couple of weeks ago at church I prayed that God would turn our church and all believers into a “blanket of love to cover the world.” The apostle Paul had much the same idea: I want you woven into a tapestry of love, in touch with everything there is to know of God. (Colossians 2:2 MSG)

What is there to be known of God? He is not a feeling or a daydream of love. He IS love. He created and is the embodiment of, love.

What is the feeling we get during praise and worship? I figured it out today. We enter into the presence of God, the presence of love. So what else can it be? As we praise, we invite God in and its His love that surrounds us.

That electric feeling when we praise, the chills that are simultaneously warm, the weight that is not a burden, its love. Pure love, surrounding us as we come together in worship. How does it feel to you? Is it the same as I have described or is it completely different?

Love weaves us together. It makes us into something that can take away the chill of the bleak existence of unbelievers. Coming together in worship, but having our own unique revelation of God, it can change the world.
