I was thinking about the definition of the word MACRO and thinking how macro is different than mega…
Mega churches are big, yet how about NOT being MEGA but being a MACRO church… A larger hierarchy of heaven’s forces bringing together the Lord’s people in a MACRO situation, which is not just big like Mega. Macro would be all encompassing of the people plus their situations…
I often marvel that even when people don’t really know us deeply, the Lord does. So perhaps we can appreciate how much the Lord knows.
So in the Lord, MACRO encompasses all the small MICRO in life as well, the knowledge of every hair on every head. My favorite cartoon of Jesus is Him using the eraser to take away dividing lines that others are drawing… Macro means everyone together. If the micro level IS the individualized way God reaches every person spiritually, He is doing so to put everyone back in place for a MACRO WHOLE Kingdom.
MACRO love is all encompassing… boundaries are broken… love overflows…
If God loves IN ALL then how can we only love in part? We need to share the openness of love.
How can we judge whether to love people or not, when the Lord already figured out how to love them, when the Lord has already judged how to save each of them, and save each of us. Yes boundaries exist for our humanness, our carefulness, our logistics, but LOVE OVERCOMES ALL.
MACRO LOVE – MICRO ME INCLUDED. MICRO YOU LOVED TOO.
That is the MESSAGE – WE ARE LOVED AND CAN LOVE – MACRO ALL THE WAY.
