we were reading 2 Corinthians 5 - 6:2 and the question came up, "how does the gospel provide hope for the hopeless?" and people started talking about how He gives them hope, something to hold on too. duh. haha :)
My train of thought began to chug along a in a slightly different direction, and i thought about how alot of us Christians talk about how God fills us up, He replaces the gap in our hearts where we have previously filled it with sin or simply other people (who are not God, and will cannot be depending on to be perfect, like our God). HOWEVER...
God doesn't come inside us to fill us and make us whole.
"For Christ's love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. And He died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for Him who died for them and was raised again. -2Corinthians 5:14-15"
We live in God, basking in His wholeness...for He is the only being to ever live who is whole all the way through. We feel whole when we are living IN Him.
this really made my night. Thanks God. :)
