There will be blood

Today Rocky and his nemesis will meet for the first time.

The summit will be hosted on neutral territory and there will be a chief negotiator present for each side.  Will it be peaceful? Will there be reconciliation? Will there be blood?

If, when we're all out for our walk, both parties are determined to be stubborn, determined to stand their ground and be top dog dominating the other, then a healthy relationship will not be possible.  Similarly when we come to God, unless we relent and recognise that we are not the rightful Kings of the world or even the rightful rulers of our lives a good relationship with God will not be possible.

We want to be the ones to decide how we live our lives but that directly challenges God's right to do so.  This is not a point for compromise.  We cannot dethrone God and expect the world or ourselves to survive the consequences.

Hopefully Rocky and Bailey will realise that it will be best for everyone if the respect each others roles and choose to love rather than hate.  Hopefully we will all recognise God for who he is and live a full and joyful life rather than one at war with the creator of the world.

To the LORD your God belong the heavens, even the highest heavens, the earth and everything in it.
Deuteronomy 10:14
Here is an 14 year old clip of a modern classic worship song sung by 45,000 people.
