Reckless, Raging Love

img_0890

“If you’ve ever known the love of God, you know it’s nothing but
reckless and it’s nothing but raging. Sometimes it hurts to be loved,
and if it doesn’t hurt it’s probably not love, may be infatuation.
I think a lot of American people are infatuated with God,
but we don’t really love Him, and they don’t really let Him love them.
Being loved by God is one of the most painful things in the world,
it’s also the only thing that can bring us salvation
and it’s like everything else that is really wonderful,
there’s a little bit of pain in it, little bit of hurt.”

Rich Mullins, 1955-1997
Christian singer and songwriter
