How Do You Describe Your Reality?

Each morning I receive a brief quote from the writings of one my favorite spiritual-theological-philosophical writers (he could wear all three hats), Dallas Willard. I was so struck by this morning’s words, I wanted to share them,

The most amazing thing we can imagine in human existence is the unending fellowship of endlessly loving people. We yearn to love and to be loved, to know and be known, to enjoy and be enjoyed in creative adventurous discovery. What these passages indicate is that this kind of wonderful existence was created and is watched over, maintained, and led by the King of Kings in his kingdom. This kind of wondrous, awe-filling reality has existed and flourished from all eternity and in all eternity. God is reigning over an everlasting festival that he has invited us to participate in, contribute to, share in, and reap the blessings from.

I don’t know what captured by attention the most,

  • Fellowship of endlessly loving people
  • Yearn to love and be loved
  • Creative adventurous discovery
  • Awe-filling reality
  • Everlasting festival

Do any of those expressions describe the reality you are “invited … to participate in, contribute to, share in, and reap the blessings from”?
