What kind of life do you think God has?

Your answer will very much determine what you think God is trying to give you.

God is alive and He is free. And He's for us! He isn't concerned about having power over us as a cruel slaveholder. His power among us means that He is free to give us all His heart desires. And His heart desires to give us life! He wants us to grow up into His own fullness and freedom. He wants us to be so fully committed to goodness that an observer with an untrained eye might say we were His slaves.

That's life. His life.

Matthew 11:30
"Are you tired? Worn out? Burned out on religion? Come to me. Get away with me and you'll recover your life. I'll show you how to take a real rest. Walk with me and work with me—watch how I do it. Learn the unforced rhythms of grace. I won't lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you. Keep company with me and you'll learn to live freely and lightly."
