Brennan Manning, who God uses to speak to my heart as few others makes this bold statement:
"You're only going to be as big as your concept of God."
He poses a searching question about a heavenly encounter with Jesus where our Lord asks us if we truly realized how much He loved us and desired fellowship with us.
Manning doesn't just ask these questions; he probes our hearts. He then predicts that some of our answers might actually reveal our unbelief, thought we might have professed and proclaimed the love of God.
Do we truly believe that Jesus loves us?
