My God Who Calls Me to Belief and Faith

Ephesians 2:8-9
New International Version (NIV)
8 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— 9 not by works, so that no one can boast.
"I Believe" - Chris August

I've been reading about a church movement to bring the Kingdom of God here on earth.  What I've seen of it would greatly disappoint me if I believed it to be true.  The glory of God will be more than gold dust and feathers floating over a worship service, Scripture has shown it will be such glory that it would be unbearable to us in our mortal bodies.  I certainly don't want to limit God, because as God He can do as He pleases.  Still I eagerly wait for the revelation of His full glory when I do see Him face to face.  Until that day I will share in the sufferings of Christ, and in doing so, I will remain faithful.  When God chooses to be silent I will still speak for Him.  When God chooses to move, I will move with Him.  I will sin but God will perfect.  He will answer my despair with hope and my sorrow with joy.  Whatsoever He has promised in His Word, He will bring to pass.   I may struggle to count it all joy; but by the power and strength of God, I can.
