There is so much good stuff in this post, and you have again demonstrated the polarities between what is and what can be. This post also brought me up short as I reflected on His love in me. At times I feel it in ways that empower me, but at other times not so much. I have wondered why. One thing I have discovered is that the more immerse myself in His words, the more love I feel for others. Then there are times when He lets me catch a glimpse of His love for others and it is so refreshing and delightful. I know it will take me a long time here and hereafter, to receive His grace in full, but I want it more than anything. Keep up the watch!

I decided after the first time I read this post several weeks ago that I would need to come back time and time again if I am to really digest it properly. You're laying on the truth pretty thick here and it speaks to the strength of my "unbelief" that I can't grasp it all in one sitting. Alas, I will need to reread it a few more times, allowing yet again more time to pass in between readings - spaced repetition - like Paul Pimsleur taught for learning a new language.

Hi Ben, I went back and re-read Part 2, and had forgotten how long it was; no wonder you need multiple times to make it through. I guess it wouldn't hurt to tell you, the post is all about the baptism of fire. I don't use that term very much because there's so much baggage with it, and it means a lot of different things to different people. But if you read Part 2 with that lens, it may make more sense. I had to look up who Paul Pimsleur was, and appreciate you sharing so I could learn something new. Best wishes, Tim
