Extreme Makeover

Christ’s love has moved me to such extremes. - 2 Cor 5 v 14

Extreme -
the greatest possible degree or extent or intensity.

Very often we look for balance.
A balanced diet.
A balanced life.
A balanced outlook.
A balanced work life.
A nice balanced church service.

Balanced can be good but also can be an excuse.

It is difficult to remain balanced when confronted with the most unbalanced act of selfless love our universe has ever witnessed. Extreme love resulted in the extreme sacrifice. To bring me who was separated by an extreme gulf of sin to encounter the extreme grace of God.

A love like that can not foster a safe balanced life but as with Paul it demands us to live at the extremes of love and action.
