Window in the Skies (2)

"Window in the Skies" (2)

By Ramone - February 17, 2007
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In His great mercy He has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead. (1 Peter 1:3)
This is the second version of an original I painted from a wonderful new U2 song that I can't get out of my head and out of my heart...

The shackles are undone
The bullets quit the gun
The heat that's in the sun
Will keep us when there's none
The rule has been disproved
The stone it has been moved
The grave is now a groove
All debts are removed

Oh can't you see what love has done?
Oh can't you see what love has done?
Oh can't you see what love has done?
What it's done to me?

Love left a window in the skies...
I love the words of this song, the new single by U2. It's what Love has done -- God is Love! What He has done in giving His Son for us has left a window in the skies, a window in the heavens that sheds the light of love on us. Knowing what He has done is so awesome!
Because of His great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with Him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus. \ (Ephesians 2:4-6)
And it is also what His love does among us! Having shown us His love, He now tells us that when we pass His love to one another, heaven opens among us. It is so true! When love, grace, opens up among us, it shocks us and there is a bit of heaven on earth between us.

It reminds me of the "greatest commandments", to love God and to love your neighbor, but before we know these commands, we can see that they are a reflection of God's love for us! He has loved us first! And He has loved our neighbors! We love because He first love; these are His priorities, and they're ours too.

And a word to Christians who are longing for an "open heaven" --

Yes, seek Him, but read Isaiah 58! Do you want "heaven to open"? Then choose to give His love! Pass His love and watch heaven open on earth.
