Drinking with God


"People are always forcing you to make decisions between flesh and spirit, whereas I want to dance myself in the direction of God. I go out drinking with God. I am flirtatious in the company of God. I am not a person who has to put God out of his mind to go out on the town. it's a key point. The divided soul of Marvin Gaye, Elvis - these conflicts tore them apart. They don't tear me apart. I reckon God loves all of me."
Bono

As my dear level 5 friend says....loveitloveitloveit...

it would be hypocritical to do anything other than what Bono says - take God into everything you do - you know he can see it anyway - why pretend any different - you only end up in conflict with yourself!

Do you remember those times when you screamed at your parents "I hate you"? - mine used to reply "well I'm not sure that I like you that much either at this moment - but I will always love you!" I'm sure that when God looks down on us all he probably says "I don't like what you are doing - but I will always love you". The sheer beauty of grace!
