Love, Love, Love
The Space Between Us by T.K. Chapin is a marvelously powerful contemporary Christian novel about love. This love is not a love that diminishes this is the love of God for His children and the love of His children for each other. It is a love based on 1 Corinthians 13. A love that puts others first. A love that takes care of the lost and the lonely.
I love the idea that “God is pursuing you.” No matter what we’ve done or where we’ve been, God wants a relationship with us.
The novel explores parental relationships. Earthly parents may fail us but God never will.
Trust is a major theme. We need to trust God with our lives. He only wants the best for us. “God’s not a genie… He has a plan. I just need to trust him.”
We must never judge others. We do not know what they have been through. “ ‘You here to preach?’ ‘No… I’m here to love.’ “
Worrying never helps. It is an enemy tactic to distract us from God. When worry creeps in we need to hand it to God. We need to swap worry for worship. “If I prayed as much as I worried, I’d have holes in every pair of jeans and a heart that relied on God.”
The novel is about reaching out in love to others. We need to be the eyes and ears, the hands and feet of Jesus.
Once again T. K Chapin has produced a fabulous tale that educates, informs and honours god.
On final thought:
“Even if it’s storm clouds from our perspective, the Son is still shining.”
