God Loves to Braai - Who Knew?
I love having a good braai. Not only do I LOVE all the good meat but I love the atmosphere it brings. Everyone unwinds, relaxes and lets go of all the stress that they built up throughout the week. We can all joke around and have a good time.
Now you may or may not know this, but the Lord really likes having a good braai too. I am serious! If you look in the Word just look at how much meat He said was to be offered up to Him on a daily basis!
Most of the time we think of the Lord as this big scary ruler that judges us if we so much as sneeze funny, but what we forget is that He loved us so much. He gave us the whole world in the form of His son.
Sometimes we forget that He had to let His son get beaten and humiliated for us. I don't know about you but for myself that would hurt me more than having Him crucified. It would hurt me more because I want to give the best to the ones I love. I don't want to see them fall and be shamed in front of everyone to see. It is in our nature to protect and cover our loved ones from that.
So to allow someone so close to my heart to suffer and bleed for the sake of strangers, takes more love than anyone of us could ever give.
So with that in mind just think about this - If the Lord loved you and cared so much back then, then why do you think that He would stop loving you that much now?
You need to stop looking at everything you did wrong, and run back into the arms of your loving father.You are hurting Him more by withholding your love from Him than you ever would if you were sinning and disobeying Him.
Bottom line? It is time to invite the Lord to your braai, and to spend a little time with your loving father. Let Him fill you up and show you all the wonders of the world. All you need to do is to sit in His presence, and have a good time with Him.
In His Love and Joy,
