I’m reading a wonderful book, Blue Like Jazz, by Donald Miller. The subtitle is “Nonreligious Thoughts on Christian Spirituality.”  Such a revolutionary, honest piece of writing! Such a refreshing look at the Christian faith.

Miller quotes a friend who said, “…to be in a relationship with God is to be loved purely and furiously. And a person who thinks himself unlovable cannot be in a relationship with God because he can’t accept who God is; a Being that is love. We learn that we are lovable or unlovable from other people. That is why God tells us so many times to love each other.”

We need to love each other. The best prayer I know is this: “Please, God, fill me with your love and help me share that love with others.”

It’s through you and me that people will come to fully understand God’s love.
