Love on TOP...from that GREAT theologian Beyonce

Let me start by saying that I am not some screaming crazy Beyonce fan.  I certainly admire her talent, semi-envy her "stature" and applaud her business acumen-no hatteration…she just isn’t my thing.  However, God can reveal himself and teach you concepts and principles using anything he chooses…back in biblical times it was parables..Today, it’s that great “theologian”….Beyonce.

Skimming thru Sirius XM radio I stumbled across her song and heard that child preach...I mean sing "You're the one that gives your all. You're the one I can always call. When I need you everything stops. Finally you put my love on top…" ok now that right there caused me pause. If it were a cassette, I would have rewound that! Not everyone has experienced a love to where you know it could be 3 in the afternoon or 3 in the morning, but if you call them and you need them they will drop everything and see about you. Their love for you is a priority with them…it’s on top. When it comes to YOU...nothing else matters. Now once you have had a love like that in your life, trust me you never forget it. You measure everything against it and oh for sure, it'll make ya’ sing and modulate 7 octaves if necessary to get your point across.

Tomorrow is Easter and thinking about the Love that God had for world, to send his son to  well true and my gratitude will never be enough. But to think about the sins I struggle with, the weights I carry, issues I am still overcoming that Christ died for and he STILL gave me direct access to call HIM, Christ…Lord of the universe anytime I want. And in spite of my filth or his disappointment…He will drop everything to be there for ME? Now that’s priceless.

We talk about Christ dying so we can live an abundant life on earth and then go to heaven and that’s true, I’m outta here at first trumpet, believe me. But something we don’t talk about much is that one of the 1st things that happened after crucifixion is that the veil in the temple was rent from the top down.  God’s first act of redemption after the price was paid was restoration of access. That’s putting your Love on Top.  When you are establishing or reestablishing a relationship with someone, the 1st thing you do after the preliminaries is give them access to you.  You give them a cell number, email…someway for you two to connect. As the relationship intensifies, both parties have learned the level of commitment to each other based on the response of the communication between you. I have learned to trust God based on his consistency to be available to me, attentive to my needs, my heart’s desire and to always put what’s best for me first. Some people have friends in their life like that..honor them. Some have spouses that are on the job making it happen...light a match, stand on your head and sing about all about it. But I am learning that greater love have NO man than THIS..that he would lay down his LIFE for his friend...

So Jesus, It’s YOU, you’re the one I love…you’re the one I need.  You’re the only thing I see…Jesus Its YOU.. You're the one that GAVE your all. You're the one I can always call. When I need you everything stops. Thank you Lord..You put my love on top… (take it up…now yall know modulating came straight up from the Baptist church…lol) *skipping away from computer sanging…* Jesus, its you...
