The Cup Of Our Fellowship Together

Neil Vermillion —  July 8, 2016 —  Comments


You see your mountains as big, and see yourself as weak. You see your hurts as permanent, and see yourself as helpless. You see your future so far away, and see today as so impossible and difficult. But as you drink from the cup of my fellowship you will no longer continue to see yourself, or your world, this way. As you continue to drink from the cup of our fellowship you will see yourself differently. You will begin to see your land differently, your future differently, your people differently, your issues so very differently.

What has seemed so distant yesterday will begin to seem close today. What felt too heavy for you to lift yesterday will begin to feel lighter and lighter. What you could not understand or comprehend yesterday will begin to seem rudimentary as you continue to drink from all I have for you. For there is nothing greater than what I offer you. There is nothing greater, more powerful than what I have for you. There is no wall so tall you cannot scale it. There is no concept so lofty you cannot comprehend it. There is nothing beyond your reach that will remain out of your reach.

For I have made a way for you already. I have opened the doors. I have unlocked the gates. I have sounded the trumpets. I have ignited the fires, and have paved the way in, and with, my love for you. And I will remain patient as I continue to sit and wait for you. I will continue to remain hopeful and observant, though you sometimes feel I am angry towards you. I know what you think and I know how you feel. But I love you in no small way. I love you so much you cannot connect it to your reality. My love for you is too intense, too extreme, too vast, too hot, and so you do not grasp it, you do not realize it. Instead you dismiss it, and discount it, reducing my love for you to something you have known, something you can understand.

But let me assure you, my love for you is far greater than what you can understand. My love for you is so much greater that what you have already known. My love for you will surpass any definition of what you believe possible. For my love for you is hot. My love for you burns like a forest fire. My love for you is totally, and completely unquenchable, inexpressible in its manifestation and demonstration. It is beyond exuberant, beyond extravagant, beyond any definition or description.

And it is from my love you have originated. It is from my love you have come into being. It is from my love I have known you, and revealed myself to you in every way. As you continue to drink from the cup of our fellowship together you will become more and more consumed with the reality of my great love for you. And as you do, you will no longer see your mountains as big, but will rightly see them as small. You will no longer see your hurts as permanent, but will rightly see them as temporary. You will no longer see the joy and hope of your future as so far away, but will rightly perceive it here for you today.

So stop what you are doing and drink from the cup of our fellowship together. Drink from my cup and allow my great love to totally and completely consume every aspect of your life.
