God Who Breaks in Upon His Church

Our God is a self-disclosing God who reveals Himself in acts of power by forcefully breaking into our otherwise routine existence (cf.violent tempest blast”-Acts 2:2, Amp). He breaks in upon His Church (which most certainly is His privilege) with memorable moments that breathtakingly remind us of our destiny and which propel us out of comfortable routine into that destiny. Being conformed to the Image of Christ and ruling this universe with Him is our destiny. Day to day maintenance of mundane comfort zones does not allow propulsion into that destiny. Cf. “The Lord of life leaves enough mystery to be intrusive, disruptive and surprising in order that He might shatter our tendencies to predictability and, yes, even boredom. Saints die of many things, but to die of boredom is the ultimate insult to the God of an ever-expanding glory!” (quote from Mark Chironna)
