The one question…

I watched a clip of Brennan Manning yesterday, which has been reverberating in my heart for the last 24 hours. Here is is:

The question that I keep coming back to is this: what if the only question Jesus asks me at the Judgment is, “did you really believe that I love you just as you are, not as you should be?”

If this question is, as Brennan suggests, the one essential question that divides the true Christian from the cultural Christian, then I’m afraid to answer it. So often God’s love and acceptance of my seems to theoretical, so contingent upon my performance.

Lord, have mercy.
