We are created to love and be loved and what makes us so unique is our ability to choose love while having the ability to resist our innate and carnal desires. This can only be possible because we have been created in the very Love that continually draws us back to its original source.
The symptom of sin is selfishness and it’s result within us is always the same: death. Being born into original sin, it is inescapable upon this earth but humans fail to grasp that no soul perishes except spiritually. And that is the essential reason for our desperate need for Christ. It doesn’t come naturally – being born into original sin, however; it is a natural part of our DNA so we spend our lives searching to return to love – being created by Love. Christ will fulfill me completely but I need to surrender completely for this to take place.
The refusal of my spirit to humble itself before the Lord is a dangerous affair. Do not wait for God to humble you… He will do whatever He must to get the attention of your soul. His Love demands it.

14 Behold, fire came down from heaven and consumed the two former captains of fifty men with their fifties, but now let my life be precious in your sight.”
15 Then the angel of the LORD said to Elijah, “Go down with him; do not be afraid of him.” So he arose and went down with him to the king
