IN OUR MIDST

IN OUR MIDST
By: Darrelyn L. Tutt

“The Lord your God is in your midst, a mighty One who will save;
He will rejoice over you with gladness;
He will quiet you with His love;
He will exalt over you with loud singing.”
Zephaniah 3:17
-----

The love of God fills us with a tender empathy and a deeper fullness of compassion.
His love is poured into us not in small quantitative measure but unceasingly, liberally, benevolently until it overflows.
His love indwells us, changes us, and catapults us into new ideas, dreams, experiences, and relationships.
The love of Christ, when it is realized in us, becomes a surrogate extension to others drawing us deeper and "together" into God's grace.
We love at our best when His best is present in us; 
when we are radiating a quality of grace and compassion proceeding from the intimacy we are experiencing with Him ourselves.
When Christ becomes our chief satisfaction and our first source of sustainment;
our lives become rich and full, and the lives of others become richer through us.
And together in our midst ...
We hear Him sing.
