Making it hard for people to know God has never made sense to me.  The barriers we put between people and God
seem so out of touch with His heart. God is much larger than the seeds of fear
and exclusion we plant in the garden of our relationships. This is why the
Father sent Jesus – The Way – to simplify our approach to Him. He knew we would
clutter that approach with our preferences and misinterpreted tribal-like religious

Think about this for a moment. Our universe is estimated to be 156
billion lights years wide and it continues to expand in size. Light now
reaching us has traveled from galaxies we are just discovering and that light has
taken 13 billion years to reach us.  God created
these unexplored dimensions of space with just a word. Just a word! A God this
immense and all-powerful would have to be very merciful in how he deals with
humans who appear as nothing more than ant-like creatures crawling around on a
small planet called Earth out in the middle of the nowhere of space.

The next time you want to judge another human being and create a
merciless response to their brokenness look up into the night sky and ponder the
unbelievable vastness of God.  In that
moment you will come to realize none of this works without God’s mercy. Those
who are able to ponder these realities and not become fussy, uptight religious people
will be the ones God uses to usher in His presence upon the earth.  That possibility is worth pondering.
