I'm more interested in how you're living out your Monday than if you sat in a pew on Sunday.
So is God.
------
The heart that undergoes a bypass is not the same.
The Surgeon has had a very personal dealing with the patient and the surgery has produced and forged an entirely different and intimate sort of bond.
This, now, is how it is in my walk with God.
My heart and face blush crimson at my perception and conception of the great Physician's scarlet love. How liberally He has poured Himself over me, into me, and through me.
How deeply He has loved me ...
with an everlasting love.
The blood and His love mingling through.
------
Christ's love compels and provokes a deeper love,
a tender compassion,
an emphatic embrace,
an active, passionate, ardent human love transferred to the broken, beaten-down, bruised, and desperate, defying the critique and graceless thoughts of men, in palpable, life-giving, healing ways.
Love is deep and strong and true.
It is open, free, and expressive.
Love is "lostness" in the love of Jesus and being found in captivity with Him.
Love is bound up in the scarlet thread of redemption and liberated by the unending flow of crimson blood. It heralds itself through an open show and identification with all those it comes into contact with.
It is not prejudice nor private.
It shows itself in highly demonstrable ways;
 in its life and service to others,
in its rhythm of love for Christ.
-------
It's the work of the Surgeon to transform and restore the patient,
 and the results become "God evident."
Is your heart beating for Him?
How deep is your love on a Monday?
