The sad truth about many longtime Christians is that they

it or trying to strive for it.
God is going to come to us in this next season of time and
His love will almost be beyond our capacity to bear. It will be
the stuff of dreams, an unimaginable, monumental, incredible,
astonishing, marvelous, outrageous love. This language will
change the way you think about everything. God’s dream for
us is that we would be immersed in the majesty of everything
He feels for us.
His love will overwhelm us, leading us past logic, reason,
intellect, and into a place where our hearts will be touched as
they have never been touched before. This is a season of wonder
for us, and we will have to learn to live like a much-loved child.
Our journey now is to cultivate an expectancy for—and
interpret everything in—the love of God. God wants to root
and ground us in His love so deeply that we live there for the
rest of our days. This love will cause us to grow to be the men
and women God most wants us to be.

our lives. We will experience the breadth, length, height, and
depth of God’s love for us. His language will wash over us, again
Love God and love our neighbor: it is our destiny and our
