A prayer....

John 17:1-5

After Jesus said this, he looked toward heaven and prayed: "Father, the time has come. Glorify your Son, that your Son may glorify you. 2For you granted him authority over all people that he might give eternal life to all those you have given him. 3Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. 4I have brought you glory on earth by completing the work you gave me to do. 5And now, Father, glorify me in your presence with the glory I had with you before the world began.






Jesus, who are you?

I want to know who you are...

You didn´t come to this planet to start Christianity. You didn´t come to start an organisation. You didn´t come to create strucutures or cultures of division...

You came to this planet give us all life. You came to give us truth so that we could be truly free. You came to give us a joy and peace deeper than we could know. You came to show us the way home.

I long for your life! Your freedom! Your truth! Your peace! Your home!

I want to know you.

vakkert.

jeg lengter også.

etter LIV som Gud har for oss. etter lidenskap som vi er kalt til å leve i. etter å se det store bildet, og også se menneskehjertene som Gud ser dem.

så ærlig og nært skrevet, morten.

lurer mye på hva Guds frihet er. "frihet" er et stort ord, med så mange tanker rundt.
det må jo være noe som gjør oss sannere, tryggere og nærmere...hm

Det er det som er poenget! Ellers blir alt bare religion, død religion.
