Howcome it seems so easy to settle for a AA’s worth of God? The toy-version. Scripture leaves me certain that what God’s offering is more on the limitless end of the spectrum. If you’ve ever walked by a sub-station at the right time – you can feel the massive amounts of energy surging through these things – and sometimes you can even hear it crackling and buzzing. This idea has been rattling around in my head for quite some time. Surely God has some say in what our relationship with Him looks like and how it functions. Surely He offers far more of Himself to each of us than any of us actually accepts.
But some people seem to really be tapped into a different sort of power source. The common denominator in these individuals seems to be they all walk by great faith, love courageously without bounds, and are obediently humble servants of the Lord.
No doubt – AA’s are not cumbersome – and they can be useful for small tasks … but they are also disposable.
But – I don’t want small tasks – or conveniently disposable god that fits into my pocket.
