If the word isreal means to struggle with God,most of us have been isreal one time or another.When I was contemplating on the 1st commandmend I thought to myself;well isnt it a bit toomuch. what about the rest of the religions and their gods.It took me forty years to figure out there is only One God for All.
I didn't like the idea of this God loving anybody else but me,but I had to accept the fact that he loved everybody wether I liked it or not.
Then there was the question of giving honor and glory to God.well is it really necessary? Then I heard a prayer saying that my giving honor and glory adds nothing to his glory,but helps me grow in his love,and I wondered how that was
One day while I was meditating on the stations of the cross,when I reached the 12th station,it occured to me it was my sins that has brought him here,and I was truely sorry I had done this to him
When I realized the prize he had paid for my sins, I couldn't help but love him and try not to offend him again.
So its not heaven that I am after;its this Amazing Love.To be without this love is hell for me.
with love to all in Christ.
