I'm married to the beautiful Bridget and father to four fantastic kiddos. We plant churches and live in a fifth-wheel camper. I write and smoke a pipe whenever I get the chance. Currently camped in Austin, TX.
“I loved her against reason, against promise, against peace, against hope, against happiness, against all discouragement that could be.” – Pip, Great Expectations (Charles Dickens)
The Son loves His Bride against all discouragement that could be. She cheats on Him with another lover – He loves Her. She expresses another life that’s not His – He loves Her. The only thing He won’t love Her against is Himself. So not only is He in the Church, His Bride, but She is in Him. In Christ, He loves His Bride against all discouragement that could be.
