There is nothing average about the God we know, the Father we long to serve. He's unconventional and exorbitant. He's extravagant in his giving. He's unrestrained in his love for us. In fact, God is extraordinary in every way. He's outrageous! If you and I were to catch even a glimpse of who he is, our lives would never be the same. And yet, he's shown us who he is. His truth and glory are revealed in his Son, Jesus Christ. And w see it every day in the universe he created, in the lives of others, and in our own experience. We often miss it, but it's there. We just forget to notice the joy he provides is outrageous because it is completely unencumbered by the circumstances we face.
Let's notice. Let's pay careful attention. Let's let our everyday lives be invaded and transformed by this loving, gracious, wonderful, perfectly outrageous God.
