The Gospel of Intensity…

I’ve always tried to learn from advice, I replay it in my head… I was told early on in my awakening that I “was intense” – but that person said they understood – they said also that they were “intense”. For better or worse, it’s good to be understood.

Intense is apparently where God needs some of us to be – not for intense arguing with people, not for political discourse, not for sports stuff, not for grumbling, not for fluff…. Intense is where God needs us FOR HIM! Don’t ever stop being intense for God…

Intense is not always popular, intense is time-consuming, intense is exhausting… be intense anyway…

Teaching, preaching, living, breathing for God… God asks us, His chosen people, to live and love Him by loving and helping His people… Don’t ever stop being intense for God. God’s people need some intense intervention and love.

Intensely God calls and rings your phone off the hook – of course it helps that when Jesus picks up the phone for you, that He puts it on speaker… “Let those who have ears hear!”…

(Jesus catches those missed calls too)

If only people would hear when God’s speaker is a megaphone… let us pray they don’t hesitate to pay attention and follow.

If only people would hear by listening to the whisper, quiet the world to hear the ping of their heart… If only people would feast on the Word and not the fluff… I pray they take the time to Listen, they don’t hesitate to pay attention and follow, and that they look forward, letting the things of earth fade away… I pray that for myself too…

Does God give us a choice? Well if one is hunted down by none other than God Himself – it becomes the only path for those seeking light – serving Jesus –  worshiping God in Spirit and Truth…

Is it easy? The few chosen to be the leaders get scrutinized intensely.  But even thru the mud they are called to give it their all… and move the flocks. Herd them forward because they heard the call…

Life is an unplowed field ready for planting… The world still needs plowing, planting and nurturing of God’s Word…

Is it LIGHT work? Of course, no matter how hard it is, it’s still LIGHT work… shedding LIGHT, sprinkling Living Water, and doing plentiful seeding – the Garden is being re-cultivated – we are called to help…

Where is God most intense? In His love.

Our intensity is but a fraction of His…

God is intense.

God is God.
