As a reader and a writer, I long for this perfect eternal finale to the ultimate story of our lives; and as a romantic idealist, I believe it is inevitable.
What kind of a God would be satisfied with anything less than this? If God is truly “Abba-Daddy,” then he will not rest until every single one of his children joins him at the climax of the story.
I know this because I know how God feels about me.
If I verbally abused him and ran away, he would chase me without ceasing (Jonah).
If I fell into a pit, he would scoop me up and carry me home (the lost sheep).
If I prostituted myself, he would woo me, marry me and mend my broken heart with his kisses (Hosea’s wife).
If I beat and killed him he would take me into the grave and resurrect me anew (Israel).
If I sold my soul to the devil he would buy it back!
Abba-Daddy is love.
“Love always protects
Love never fails.”
God will bring his romantic love story to its “happily ever after” climax for me … and for you … and for every person who ever existed, exists and will exist.
“And they all lived happily ever after…”
