GETTING TO THE MYSTERY THAT AWAITS EVERYBODY. That's you task, something so doable and lovely awaits you./ Whether you decide to participate or not does not alter the immensity of what awaits anybody willing to reach./ It's all about often talking with the Trinity that constantly your whole life dwells on your skin./ For They above everything live in infinite wonder with billions in Heaven who know the joy of connecting with Them.
SO HOW CAN OUR FAITH TRULY BE SOMETHING UNIQUE AND LASTING? Due to the reality that within this walk there remains deep and stirring mystery. The sort of touch that awaits all willing to respond. Gravity. And that's the beauty of our shared belief that can in fact do the miraculous. I get tired of being the only soul having experienced miracle after miracle throughout my life, when in fact anybody can experience something more. Sure, I'm way more disciplined. But all you need to do is have a tad of the grip I live and you too can share in the wonder. We can read of it this way: "16 Here is the great mystery of our religion: Christ[g] came as a human. The Spirit proved that he pleased God, and he was seen by angels." (I Timothy 3:16). So there's the essence of what you can reach; stretch so this mystery can exist not just on your skin, but in your mind. For from there comes the faith and prayers that tend to realize the miraculous. Lovely God, we do pray that You would help us to understand the magic You offer. In Jesus name, amen.

WHILE I'M NOT A BIG PROPONENT OF CONTEMPLATING ethics, I of course remain interested in it. And in I Timothy we find some good suggestions on what fine livin looks like. It amounts, naturally, first of all, to have a strong faith to help shape your ethical approach. But given that, we see these suggestions: "It is true that[a] anyone who desires to be a church official[b] wants to be something worthwhile. 2 That’s why officials must have a good reputation and be faithful in marriage.[c] They must be self-controlled, sensible, well-behaved, friendly to strangers, and able to teach. 3 They must not be heavy drinkers or troublemakers. Instead, they must be kind and gentle and not love money." (I Timothy 3:1-3). Given this is first of all directed at church leaders, it's fair to allow for that. But the essence of these suggestions certainly well apply to all. For this sort of purity not only makes living more fun and meaningful, it also reaches the unsaved when they see it lived; since most don't care for this. Therefore, these ideas bear our attention to carry out and implement so we can indeed experience the level of fruitful life we deserve. Holy Father, we do ask that You would help us to live like this. In Jesus name, amen.

BE NICE TO THIS DAY GRASP WHAT Heaven really wants you to be about. Given that happy place is the destination for all interested in the will of the Trinity. So why don't we ponder that idea and fathom just what the Trinity most of all want us to be doin. I must confess, as the only soul in the world with the Trinity constantly upon me, I do this sort of thing often and by default. Whereas, to be sure, you stand in a tougher spot given that Satan lives in you and so wants to dispel you away from the better. We find a description of this superior path here: "8 I want everyone everywhere to lift innocent hands toward heaven and pray, without being angry or arguing with each other." (I Timothy 2:8). There ya have it. The longing expressed here happens to be your calling. Truth be told, our Friends in Heaven so hunger for you to be about this activity on your own and in church. Lovely Father, we do ask that You would help us to be a people that reaches to You. In Jesus name, amen.

IT BEARS CONSIDERATION WHAT IT MEANS to properly adore the Father. Due to my experience with years of mentoring folks how to do this. I sure have learned that everyday people find the task way difficult. Since our lovely God is unseen. But so knowable. Therefore, it bears now justice to fathom what worship ought to look like. Consider this form: "17 I pray that honor and glory will always be given to the only God, who lives forever and is the invisible and eternal King! Amen." (I Timothy 1:17). Yep, there you have it my friends; how to glorify God deftly. We find it in Paul's prayer. It's a view that here fully does fair honor to our glorious and kind Lord. A way for you to pray as I do. Simply talk this way to God and you suddenly become infinetly more attractive to Him. And, happily, a vehicle for Him to reach the world through you. Can't really be done apart from this sort of pure, holy speech. Our dear God, we do ask that You would help us to worship You this way. In Jesus name, Amen.

SO WHEN YOU REALLY GET DOWN TO BRASS TACKS, what happens to be required is a deep humility that simply/ Allows the Christ to do more than just linger upon your skin. Sure, He's always gonna be there, but His way/ Stronger hunger is to do spiritual stuff to your soul at a level only He can work that catches your heart/ And sends it soaring to levels maybe unknown to you before. No worries, this track feels great when ya get there.
THERE'S A KEY SIDE OF CONNECTING WITH THE MESSIAH that truly offers some semblance of hope for the masses. We can find it wrapped around the teaching of Paul this way: "14 Christ Jesus our Lord was very kind to me. He has greatly blessed my life with faith and love just like his own." What this means is that when Paul devoted his being to the Lord, he found himself taken by a faith and love at the scale of Jesus. Talk about intensity. Yet it seems to me, as one today with a similar touch, that you can experience a way deeper level of a brush from the Christ. You only need to approach it as Paul did; allow Him that vital entrance into your being that allows Him to structure your thinking and dreams into His own. Purely. And that, my friend, happens to be the requirement if you are ever to let Him launch your stead into something sailing. It all comes down to humility. Just submit to His desire to craft your life into something quite useful to Him and then faith and love will accompany it for sure. Lovely Jesus, we do ask that You would instill in us a similar level of faith and love. In Your name, amen.

ALWAYS NICE TO PONDER THE CHRIST. Largely, cause He's the source of creation of this and trillions of other worlds. So at the conclusion of John, when the writer goes on to comment about His Lord, we find something not really too far said. He puts it this way: "25 Jesus did many other things. If they were all written in books, I don’t suppose there would be room enough in the whole world for all the books." (John 21:25). Really, how trite. No, actually this statement is very much veracity. Because when you stop and consider the simple scale of all that the Christ did in the world, you have to agree with John here. His actions can so very well be analyzed endlessly to result in way more books than ever were known. But, of course, the humaness of all keeps that from happening. Just as nobody can fathom my not sinning and being the only soul mate of Jesus ever, so nobody can do justice to the Messiah. But suffice to say, your appropriate response to this fact must be to open your heart wide to the grandeur of the Lord so He can clean it and make it useful to Him. Our Jesus, we do ask that You would kindly help us to understand Your greatness today. In Your name, amen!

ONE OF THE VAST OPPORTUNITIES OF LIVING THIS DAY, is the surety that the Christ so longs to bless you. Don't matter that your humaness argues otherwise; Jesus remains your lastin interest. We find Him doin this to the apostles this way: "6 So he told them, “Let your net down on the right side of your boat, and you will catch some fish.” They did, and the net was so full of fish that they could not drag it up into the boat." (John 21:6). Why this verse counts for you is that Jesus hasn't changed. He still very much wants to bless His people. Yet the question remains, are ya gonna let Him? Cause reality happens to be, you shall always as long as you live have Satan the loudest voice in you. And I assure you, that voice will always work to talk you out of allowing the Christ any stead in you. But all is required of you, is that you simply call on Him, knowing He remains ever on your skin and a trillion times more powerful than Satan. Heavenly Jesus, we do pray that You would please help us to all You to work in our lives. In Your name, amen. Peace of Christ to you.

FINDING THAT AVENUE OF FAITH IN THE UNSEEN can seem daunting when all life seems to throw at you is da physical./ But the better reality is to think in belief terms and push for a deeper trust in the Christ that surmounts/ A pull constantly dragging you toward living fully in weak, survival terms that the Lord so detests./ Instead, His Heart for you is fully one of hunger for your dear fellowship often. Know He's on you always.
SO TRUE IT'S A TOUGH DEED TO HAVE FAITH in the unseen. When all of life suggests actin otherwise. But when ya choose to get serious about finding the source and promise of life, then belief can take hold of your heart and fashion it into something lovely, a form of life that way transcends the seen and moves you toward the Heavenly. Not easy. But certainly doable when ya consider the words of the Christ: "29 Jesus said, 'Thomas, do you have faith because you have seen me? The people who have faith in me without seeing me are the ones who are really blessed!'” (John 20:29). Here we find the Messiah most of all honoring those like you and me who choose faith in the unseen Messiah without having ever seen Him. Makes Thomas' take look way easy. But when you choose to believe totally based on the Word and the sense He's there, as He sure is, then you definitely move to that happy place of honor before Him. Great Jesus, we do ask that You would help us to believe in You. In Your name, amen.

GREETING THE SPIRIT PUTS US IN A PLEASING PLACE within His purview. A space of welcome to us and Him that/ Thrusts us unto His elegant guidance well beyond anything known to humanity within the world./ It's a flow of life that originates in Heaven but, curiously, remains unafraid to amble among us this day./ Therefore, our inkling has to be one of constant welcome if we are ever to mature to that style of Spirit walkin.
SO GREAT TO SEE JESUS BREATHING HIS SPIRIT on the apostles. At a time when they sure needed it. Having themselves, in a way, also been crucified along with their Lord. Hence their need to experience the Spirit's new power upon them must have been dire. Jesus says this, "22 Then he breathed on them and said, 'Receive the Holy Spirit. 23 If you forgive anyone’s sins, they will be forgiven. But if you don’t forgive their sins, they will not be forgiven.'” (John 20:22). So their measure of the spirit is well beyond anything known to this point; something so important and effective that they pretty much had to live it. As "Acts" says they do. But the more relevant picture for us is the truth that the Christ wishes to impart the His Spirit unto people today. If only they let Him. Since He don't change or buy the typical church crap that religion is weak and purely ritualistic. Nope, to the Messiah true religion this day is nearly all about the Spirit encroaching upon us. Great Jesus, we do ask that You would help us to welcome Your Spirit. In Your name, amen.

BECOMING A PERSON FULLY DEVOTED to pursuing truth has to be ranked among that which is most important./ Due to Pilate's problem he posed to the Lord about what really is truth, as though it's that opaque./ Yet really, it ain't that hard to fathom what is truth when you ponder the Word of Life, Who's Truth itself./ So goes the better course to think in terms of truth under His eyes; the real stuff.
THIS IDEA THAT PILATE TOSSES TO JESUS represents I would say an honest conundrum. Heck, the guy obviously feels uncomfortable condemning the Christ to death. But, of course, the Jews demand it so he can't escape. Hence, a better angle is to ponder Pilate's response to Jesus's point about His kingdom not being of this world. That goes fully against what Jews had been pushing for years against the Romans. So Pilate responds this way: "38 Pilate asked Jesus, 'What is truth?'" (John 18:38). It seems here that indeed God or Jesus put these words in his mouth; I doubt he could have come up with this on his own. It's too profound. But, nevertheless, a great cornerstone of how difficult it must have been to persecute the Lord so recklessly. And what is especially interesting, is how the Christ had already been through this ordeal trillions of times in previous worlds. He certainly gets the award for suffering the most pain ever known to anybody who walked the earth. So this encounter holds special interest for us to be truth folks. Knowing that when we fully keep always pursuing truth we stay under His approval. Fine Jesus, we do pray that You would help us to remain truth seekers in Your name. Amen.

FACT REMAINS THAT ONE CAN ATTAIN A special relationship with the Christ He prayed for. Why this matters to all of you is that you can share in His glory now to a vastly eternal extent. We find Him describing it this way: "24 Father, I want everyone you have given me to be with me, wherever I am. Then they will see the glory that you have given me, because you loved me before the world was created." (John 17:24). So the quality of this vision that avails you now is to grasp understanding the incredible glory that is Messiah love ranging well before our world got created. When you gain an edge that allows you to feel this, you know it. Because to grasp the nature of this glory should feel euphoric to your being. As that is the nature of this supernatural love that lived well before worlds got built trillions of years ago. Pure love. So do go after this in prayer and in heart and know that you can gain such a good feeling in your person as it really happens to be available to you today. Powerful Jesus, we do ask that You would help us to feel the power of your love that You share with the Father. In Your name, amen.

THERE'S AN APPROPRIATE WAY TO PRAY that can in fact propel you into the arms of the Father and the Christ./ Not something too far fetched. No, a discipline of praying that is revealed quite clearly in scripture so openly./ No mystery or ambiguity with this. Instead, a very obvious approach that shall surely draw you into Their embrace./ Sending your soul unto Their vast humility that longs to know you better than you can imagine or hope for.
WHEN YA THINK OF PRAYIN, seems it helps to fashion your prayers after that of the Christ; since He knows way better than us how to relate to God. Pray purely. We find His praying like this: "I also want them to be one with us. Then the people of this world will believe that you sent me." (John 17:21). So His intent in this statement is that we might be joined to God and the Son. Not merely a concept. But a reality sort of existence that can uplift you into Their arms often. Transcend human weakness. So your mission is to pray just this sort of utterance often, so They can have permission to achieve the joining freely whether you feel inclined that way or not. Then you can be certain that They will in fact tug on your spirit in your body and wash it clean enough to so that you can arrive in their presence regularly. Since the sin in you makes your life less palatable but your words can get that fixed. Our Jesus, we do ask that You would help us pray this pray often so You can keep us joined to You. In Your name, amen.

LOVELY PEACE. Oh yes, that fine fabric of constant contentment that is in fact yours for the askin./ If only you will simply ask for it and trust in faith that such peace can be truly yours./ Because you have to know that the Trinity so strongly long for you to experience the Heavenly peace they offer./ Something that can lift your heart to a precious level of semblance that transcends any troubles the world plucks at you.
WOULDN'T IT BE NICE TO REALLY HAVE DEEP PEACE? Yeah, to be sure living that way offers incredible joy since you can surmount the trials of life. That shall always be there. Painfully. But, thankfully, we have in the Christ a promise of something more ever ready to be enjoyed. He describes it this way: "33 I have told you this, so that you might have peace in your hearts because of me. While you are in the world, you will have to suffer. But cheer up! I have defeated the world." (John 16:33). Yep, the severe notion that the Messiah has whipped the world for you and me is the stuff of legend in practical application. Trust me, I know this better than anyone as Satan regularly hurts me in some fashion. But I don't really care; for the dear Trinity constantly stream powerfully through me and inject me with untold peace. And I know Satan needs these puny attacks since I'm forever his more dire issue in the world. But want I want you to so pursue is a heartfelt beckoning to the Lord for peace; it's yours for the asking. Lord Jesus, we ask that You would help us live Your peace. In Your dear name, amen.

GETTIN THERE IS SO ESSENTIAL. A place far beyond the reach of many purely from their hard hearts./ Yet you can join me a little and always fight sin and, I assure you so delight the Trinity who despise it./ Since sin happens to be the reason people age and die. It surely is not just due to life going on./ No, it is sin that causes all your life pain and sorrow and that shall for sure make you older--don't accept it/ Instead, choose the precious exciting life that our lovely Spirit offers and surmount sin pain.
IT SIMPLY CANNOT BE OVER DISCUSSED. Role of the Spirit. Due, of course, to the shameful way so many but yours truly decide to deny Him. Fact. He ain't goin away. You can easily join the billions headed toward Hell. Satan would rejoice at this. No, a far better way is to continue, constantly, to achieve that blessed station of seein the Spirit truly in your life. Thankfully, our dear Lord has this to say on the subject: "8 The Spirit will come and show the people of this world the truth about sin and God’s justice and the judgment. 9 The Spirit will show them that they are wrong about sin, because they didn’t have faith in me." And my friends, please kindly give this idea your fullest attention as His point is the key one; sin kills. Now, you can easily be an idiot and join the masses to ever ignore the magic of how the Spirit can often convict you of your sin. Or, far more smartly, you can today allow the Spirit a presence in your place to always convict you of wretched sin. Know that sin shall always punish the Trinity, whether you deal with it or not. So face it and trounce it by: the Spirit! Mighty Jesus, we do pray that You would help all the readers of this to fight sin. In Your glorious name, amen. I pray that God will open Heaven above you and come down with storm clouds under His feet to reach you.

HOW TO NAVIGATE HATE. Not an easy journey, to be sure. But when we can screw our heads on properly, we can see/ What the proper response ought to be. It looks like learning to dance through hate just as our Jesus did mercifully./ And once we grasp the proper approach, life can be full of joy no matter how troublesome the opposition./ Since we can always remember how unbelievably painful the Christ suffered a recurring hate that way transcends.
WE THINK WE HAVE AN IDEA WHAT HATE LOOKS LIKE. Wrong. This is what hate looks like: Being the sacrificial savior of the world and being crucified trillions of times. That's hate. However, the happy side to the equation is using this knowledge to improve your navigation of life today. For if you openly love Jesus, no doubt some folks are gonna oppose that and you. The Lord comments upon it this way: "18 If the people of this world[b] hate you, just remember that they hated me first. 19 If you belonged to the world, its people would love you. But you don’t belong to the world. I have chosen you to leave the world behind, and that is why its people hate you. 20 Remember how I told you that servants are not greater than their master. So if people mistreat me, they will mistreat you. If they do what I say, they will do what you say." So our angle to this dislike should be happiness; knowing that the Christ will always provide strength to deal with this bothersome dislike. Since He to be sure has suffered a far more severe form. Holy Jesus, we ask that You would help us to be happy about any hate we might endure. In Your name, amen. Peace of the Spirit to you.

KNOWIN THE VAST OPPORTUNITY found in gettin fruitful presents an awesome opportunity to really shine./ Indeed, you surely have the fuel in the ready Messiah just hopin you get it together and really reach for Him./ Then the two of you can amaze and create fruit not possibly found with worldly approaches that just don't delight./ Nope, your fruit becomes something so lovely because the Christ and you together author it and deliver soundly.
THERE'S AN APPROACH TO LIFE THAT ENDS IN PRODUCTIVITY. When nearly everyone seems content on just prosperin their own kingdoms, you certainly have a rare opportunity to be so productive. It can be done this way: "4 Stay joined to me, and I will stay joined to you. Just as a branch cannot produce fruit unless it stays joined to the vine, you cannot produce fruit unless you stay joined to me. 5 I am the vine, and you are the branches. If you stay joined to me, and I stay joined to you, then you will produce lots of fruit." (John 15:4-5). Hence the nature of being a fruitful soul rests entirely on your ability to stay linked to the Christ. Push for it. The scripture here obviously explains His interest in that. So the due occurence of that entirely rests upon your thinkin; do you want it or not? Great question, since 99.95% of folks don't. Thus, you are definitely going to have to be diligent in constantly reaching for a connection with the Messiah, knowing He waits for you to do that. Great Jesus, we do pray that You would help us stay connected to You. In Your name, amen.
Saturday, November 8, 2014
PEACE HAPPENS TO BE OUT THERE ALWAYS from Heaven. The question remains whether or not you shall want it./ Because this flavor of peace that Jesus describes can't be grabbed like the peace light you find around you./ Nope, this peace awaits your calling on the Christ to deliver it to you and when you're ready to accept it./ Remember, part of His constant prompting upon your skin is a continual pressing for you to welcome His peace.
THERE REMAINS A PROBLEM WITH PEACE IN OUR WORLD. Little of it seems to be available in a lasting flavor. Rather, when we can attain some peace, it so often is riled by other cares that way too easily intrude. Primarily due to our lack of focusing on the proper source of peace: Jesus. He presents it this way: "27 I give you peace, the kind of peace that only I can give. It isn’t like the peace that this world can give. So don’t be worried or afraid." (John 14:27). Here we find the correct angle to pursue; making achieving His peace an essential life goal. Honestly, the only effective way to really connect with this level of peace is to simply surrender. Submit. It really comes down to not accepting peace this world offers, but instead only settling for the Christ peace that offers a way higher quality of contentment. The proper step to undertake to realize this peace is merely calling upon the Messiah to deliver this peace unto you. Our Jesus, we do ask that You would kindly give us peace. In Your name, amen.
Friday, November 7, 2014
TRAGICALLY TRUE THAT THE SPIRIT GETS LITTLE ATTENTION. And why? Because He's mysterious and people prefer the concrete. To all of them Jesus and God the Father seem so much more accessible. Heck, Rarely does anybody get any teaching on the Spirit in church. Or at home. But that ain't reason for you to follow foolishness. Cause Jesus puts the truth this way: "26 But the Holy Spirit will come and help[d] you, because the Father will send the Spirit to take my place. The Spirit will teach you everything and will remind you of what I said while I was with you." (John 14:26). The crucial reality here that the Christ sought to bring home, is He so wants all of us to be all the time, most of all--Spirit people. Yeah, meaning we are to actually act like the Spirit is now in our lives most important. Because that is precisely what the Messiah teaches here; His role should be central to ours. Lovely Jesus, we do ask that You would always remind us to keep the Spirit central to life. In Your name, amen.

THERE EXISTS A DISTANT MAGIC that is truly available to all of humanity. A precious way of thinkin./ The Trinity call it faith and remain terribly frustrated that so few see the immense value there./ But you, my dear friend, can in fact exercise your God given ability to gather this precious entity./ Really, it isn't hard at all to gather a big faith and arrive at that sweet destination that the Trinity treasure.
GIVEN THAT FAITH IS THE PENULTIMATE POWER that indeed changes lives for the better, you ought to know for certain how to increase your faith size. It ain't necessarily automatic. Or many would do as much miraculous. Which, incidentally, I have never seen except for the many miracles seen in my world due to holding a strong faith. So faith is lackin for sure. Jesus addresses it this way: "11 Have faith in me when I say that the Father is one with me and that I am one with the Father. Or else have faith in me simply because of the things I do." (John 14:11). What the Christ provides here is a simple directive on how to build your faith. Simply regularly read the gospels and ponder the miracles done by the Messiah; for He awaits your faith to do miracles in your life. So just often read and learn the stories and then ask for more faith. Then your faith grows to a lofty place. And always, always remember that faith is the firery fuel that thrills and motivates the Trinity to act on your behalf. Great Jesus, we do ask that You would increase our faith. In Your name, amen. Peace of Christ to you.

NICE TO CONSIDER WHAT HEAVEN REALLY OFFERS. Cause that happens to be the place all the faithful shall go. Why's it so great? Well, for starters, all of nature, trees, animals, etc., gets transferred to Heaven for eternity. So yes, your dog for sure is gonna be there for you forever to enjoy. And trust me, spiritual life in Heaven is way above the weak physical crap here. And remember, Heaven ain't way up there. It's all around you, just in a special dimension ya can't see now. Jesus comments on it this way: "Jesus said to his disciples, “Don’t be worried! Have faith in God and have faith in me.[a] 2 There are many rooms in my Father’s house. I wouldn’t tell you this, unless it was true. I am going there to prepare a place for each of you. 3 After I have done this, I will come back and take you with me. Then we will be together. 4 You know the way to where I am going.” (John 14:1-4). What the Christ describes here is a sweet place He has prepared just for you. And I can comment a bit further since the Trinity live in me and always help me to understand how Heaven really works. Once you get there, you go through a class the Trinity have designed to acquaint you with the wild and comforting nature of that Place. A key point in the class is about yours truly. To understand that constant light that shines in me from Colorado Springs. The dude who don't sin. Never been one like him and never will be another. And believe me, the souls in Heaven enjoy watching my every move because they know my life is gonna change the world for Jesus as never before. So Heaven is gonna be a place of eternal joy way beyond anything you have known. Precious Jesus, we do ask that You would deeply help us to know the absolute joy of Heaven. In Your name, amen.
Tuesday, November 4, 2014
NO DOUBT GRASPIN THE INCREDIBLE PLACE OF THE CHRIST upon you and every soul in the world is daunting. Primarily cause He's invisible. Having departed the earth. Something He's done trillions of times in the past. But today you live in a wondrous place of delight. His love ever resting upon your skin. We find the Messiah describing it all this way: "33 My children, I will be with you for a little while longer. Then you will look for me, but you won’t find me. I tell you just as I told the people, “You cannot go where I am going.” 34 But I am giving you a new command. You must love each other, just as I have loved you. 35 If you love each other, everyone will know that you are my disciples." (John 13:33-35). Here we find the essence of the Lord explaining how life really works. It ain't only in your body; you live upon the earth a relatively short time. So, I assure you, as the only one on this planet shining brilliantly because the Trinity live in me and grant me perfection, that you so need to simply talk back to the Trinity. For They surely long to hear from you as much as you can garner. And guide you to that happy place in Heaven where you can watch yours truly live, since I don't age. Yep, I'm gonna look 18 years old for countless years as I lead billions to Heaven. Therefore, make it your mission to always press tightly into Jesus and enjoy His favor. Something you can look foward to seein in that Place. Oh, dear Jesus, we do ask that You would kindly always strongly prompt us to ever communicate with You. In Your Holy name, amen.

A NICE THING IN THE WAY THE MESSIAH provides true insight into how to be a servant. Not just conceptually. No, His illustration by washing feet strikes especially strongly cause this behaviour in the day only came from servants. So we can carry somethin from this teaching to apply to life. Jesus explains it this way: "15 I have set the example, and you should do for each other exactly what I have done for you. 16 I tell you for certain that servants are not greater than their master, and messengers are not greater than the one who sent them. 17 You know these things, and God will bless you, if you do them." (John 13:15-17). So we find here the Christ teaching forcefully that we should in fact do this to one another regularly. To live the real servant life. Not something at all beyond our grasp. But with the help of the Lord, a lovely ritual that strikes our hearts down to the proper level and places us at the same time into the arms of Heaven. Creatin New Life in us. Great Jesus, we do ask that You would please guide us to do this washing our of love for those we attend. In Your name, amen.

THERE REMAINS SOME AWKWARDNESS IN regards to what it means to actually connect with the Christ. This cause all of your person works against the unsettling step toward finding that Light. Unfortunately, due to the Trinity's support for freedom, They prefer to see you required to make a huge leap at findin that Light. Since you're alone until you take that crucial leap beyond the confines of your body. We find Jesus putting it this way: "Walk in the light while you can. Then you won’t be caught walking blindly in the dark. 36 Have faith in the light while it is with you, and you will be children of the light.” (John 12:35-36). So your task is to get to understanding that meaning of "walkin in the light." I know the sense that the Christ intends is for you to understand and practice the idea of stretching your mind to the point of ever reaching for Him. That done, you can certainly find Light. Great Jesus, we ask that You would enable us to walk in Your Light. In Your name, amen.

HOW TO MATURE BEYOND THE TYPICAL DOWNWARD SPIRAL TO HELL? Not an easy course for absolute sure./ But certainly doable when ya can deny yourself every comfort in favor of finding ways to suffer for Christ./ Cause that changes your person from the natural selfish Hell bound course to the life giving altruist./ And your Saviour to be sure deeply hungers to see you mature to the level where death to self is automatic.
LIFE ITSELF PRESENTS SURE DIFFICULTY in happening upon a spiritual plane. Key reason? Satan is in you until ya die and he constantly strives to get you to Hell. That's his mission and joy. Since about every ten seconds somebody enters Hell. But fortunately, you can surmount this life problem. Always knowing that your body and Satan are tuggin you downward. Yet the happy perspective is how the Christ can rescue you from this dire quandry. He presents the solution this way: "25 If you love your life, you will lose it. If you give it up in this world, you will be given eternal life." (John 12:25). So the answer is maturing to the point that daily death becomes second nature. A tough paradox few can accomplish. But doable. You accomplish this by often leaning upon Jesus and the Spirit to enable ya to die. And then you in your heart often think about how you can deny yourself in every way to cause yourself maturing pain. Lovely Jesus, we do ask that You would enable us to die to ourselves so we can live. In Your name, amen.

KEY POINT WHEN YA WANT to get in the game of seeing the Christ do good in your life, is to adore Him well. Reason why this counts is His infinite role over your life; apart from Him you for sure disappear to nowhere. Whereas, once you live the life of often admiring Him, you move into that exciting lane of attracting the Creator Word into your world. A nice place to be. We find one angle to this here: "7 Jesus replied, 'Leave her alone! She has kept this perfume for the day of my burial. 8 You will always have the poor with you, but you won’t always have me.'” (John 12:7-8). This is the Messiah's response to criticism for somebody adoring Him. You can see here he appreciates her sacrifice for Him. And that is exactly His regard for you when ya get serious about adoring Him a great deal; that lights His fire. Since rarely does anybody do it. And the task can be fairly easy given that an honest way to accomplish this is to simply give time to purely glorifying Him for all that he does for you. Our Jesus, we do ask that You would help us to adore you often and treasure Your place in our lives. In Your name, amen.

IT SAYS IN THE ACCOUNT, that the Christ felt very upset over the death of His friend Lazarus. And the weeping and heartfelt sorrow of his sisters certainly pulled at His heart. So to read His response to the situation is quite encouraging as you know this delighted everyone there. It says, "43 When Jesus had finished praying, he shouted, “Lazarus, come out!” 44 The man who had been dead came out. His hands and feet were wrapped with strips of burial cloth, and a cloth covered his face. Jesus then told the people, 'Untie him and let him go.'” (John 11:43-44). Now this story bears pondering for us as in doing so the Messiah for sure comes closer, given that 24x7 He is always on your skin prompting you to talk with Him. So when you turn your thoughts to this and other Jesus doings, you in a sense open your soul to the Lord and in a way free Him to work in your world. That's our life goal. Great Jesus, we do ask that You would open our minds to often think about Your miracles to be the fuel to increase the fire in our hearts for You. In Your name, amen. Peace of the Spirit to you.

ONE OF THE MORE INTERESTING THINGS I came to understand when I quit sinning, is how the Trinity cast their spirit into all of nature all the time. So everything's buzzed and goes to Heaven. And sheep are just one example of this. Since they tend to be followers of the shepherd and generally dependent upon people. A nice picture of the potential relationship with the Christ. Jesus comments upon it this way: "14 I am the good shepherd. I know my sheep, and they know me. 15 Just as the Father knows me, I know the Father, and I give up my life for my sheep." (John 10:14-15). So it's fair to say your life should in many ways be that of a sheep. To have that sort of dependency upon the shepherd, the Messiah. The reason I understand this so well, is cause when I'm out and about, animals like to stare at me. Since the Trinity live in me powerfully and exude their glory about 1000 yards from my body. So this message makes enormous sense to me, as I understand the beauty of the precious relationship between the Trinity and sheep. So should you and then emulate it. Dear Jesus, we do ask that You would give us following hearts like sheep before You. In Your lovely name, amen.

WHEN ONE HONESTLY PONDERS LIFE, ya should surely realize that blindness happens to be one of the most severe afflictions. Cause Satan afflicts all of humanity with severe blindness, since he knows this a great path to Hell. And since nearly everybody ends up there, it seems that spiritual blindness afflicts way too many. We have a nice comment upon the topic from the Christ. He puts it this way: "When the Pharisees heard Jesus say this, they asked, 'Are we blind?' 41 Jesus answered, 'If you were blind, you would not be guilty. But now that you claim to see, you will keep on being guilty.'” (John 9:40-41). And that's the trouble with blindness. Ya remain in your sins. So your challenge and opportunity must be about ever pressing for sight. And how do ya get it? The answer is obvious but suffice to say the approach remains way simple: Continually call on Jesus for help to see until you mature to the point that sight is automatic. You know you're seeing properly when your life happens to fruitful with the continual work of the Messiah. Lovely Jesus, we do pray that You would please help us to see right. In Your name, amen.

JUST NEVER ALLOW HEALING TO BE FOREIGN. Cause the Christ earnestly desires to fix all ills and lead us to wellness./ Cause He certainly never intended for anyone to go through life with persistent infirmity when He can fix it./ So your outlook always must be to instantly call on Jesus to bring healing whenever you encounter an ill./ Because we must know that the Messiah most definitely wants life on earth to be one of health that feels good.
THERE REMAINS A STRONG BOGUS OUTLOOK that pervades the world: miracles have ceased. Quite harmful to the countless folks dying for relief. But way better to accept the truer version of life that the Christ truly wants to fix every defect appearing in everyday people. We find the Christ explaining a healing in His day: 'But because of his blindness, you will see God work a miracle for him. 4 As long as it is day, we must do what the one who sent me wants me to do. When night comes, no one can work. 5 While I am in the world, I am the light for the world.'” (John 9:3-5). We ought to simply lay down all the bunk that tends to pull at us to think miracles ain't happenin. Cause they don't when you accept that trash. Instead, more readily always think in factual terms that the Messiah hasn't changed; He longs to heal everybody in need. Then constantly be ready to call on Him to heal right and left, finding His joy. Lovely Jesus, we do ask that You would drive home in our hearts Your longing to head today. In Your name, amen.

ONE OF THE VERY FUNNY THINGS I FIND about people is the common way they seem to think Satan is up there along with God. How false. The truth of life is that Satan lives in every person their whole lives, whether they believe that or not. Of course most don't see it that way. Doesn't really affect reality. Jesus comments upon the topic this way to Jews: "44 Your father is the devil, and you do exactly what he wants. He has always been a murderer and a liar. There is nothing truthful about him. He speaks on his own, and everything he says is a lie. Not only is he a liar himself, but he is also the father of all lies." (John 8:44). Why this should catch your attention is how the Christ explains the nature of Satan; useful cause he lives in you and directs your life. Since he's sin and makes sure you sin as much as possible. So your smart move is to always smartly oppose Satan, knowing he won't injure you since ya always sin. On the other hand, since I don't sin, he often beats the crap out of me. But that simply can't be your problem since ya sin. Hence your wiser play is to simply fight sin and leave him empty with your life. Jesus loves this. Holy Lord, we do ask that You would please help us to both love Satan and always fight his sin. In Your name, amen.

MYSTERY AWAITS OUR WORLD. Yeah, the flavor of life that can easily be known once ya connect with Them./ But of course that journey ain't natural nor simple cause Heaven remains an uncrowded place./ Yet you can indeed go there with ease once ya simply respond to the constant promptin ever upon your skin./ Lookin so easy when you simply respond to their constant entreaty and jump into Their arms.
THERE REMAINS WIDESPREAD DIFFICULTY WITH understanding the impact of the Christ upon folks. Coming, of course, from hardly anyone gripping the truth that the Messiah ever tugs upon everybody's heart. They miss the key truth that could get them to Heaven. Instead, in way too many cases, ending up in Hell. Now, thanks to the Trinity and Satan, Hell ain't that bad, but surely no comparison to Heaven. So let's examine the view of Jesus: “'You don’t know me or my Father!' Jesus answered. 'If you knew me, you would know my Father.'” (John 8:19). His point obviously is that indeed the large majority of folks are missin it. But you can know better. Just be sure you respond to this blog and get busy burying your heart into the constant pull of the Lord. Our Jesus, we do ask that You would please strongly instruct us to know you and the Father. In your name, amen.

HOW DOES IT FEEL TO BE IN A DARK PLACE and be unable to see anything? Disconcerting. But in life there happens to be a way more severe blindness that certainly affects the vast majority of people; it's missing the spiritual light. So our interest must become intense regardin gaining a better insight into seeing the way toward Heaven. Jesus comments upon it this way: "Once again Jesus spoke to the people. This time he said, 'I am the light for the world! Follow me, and you won’t be walking in the dark. You will have the light that gives life.'” (John 8:12). Here we find the ultimate truth regarding how to see better in the spiritual world, that vantage most critical to a satisfying life now and forevermore. The Christ draws up next to your skin and yells at you gently 24x7 to get this. And so, you can with this verse truly grasp the key, vital notion there happens to be an avenue toward proper sight. Pulling ya to Him. Holy Jesus, we do ask that You would please open our eyes to Your light. In Your name, amen.

WE FIND IN THE CHRIST A DISTUBIN APPROACH. Seems He didn't get the jist of modern religion regarding sinners. That's why you find so few flagrant sex doers in church. People know how to committ unspeakable sex stuff hidden so they don't gain the disdain of their church friends. For sure, tons of adultery and lewd godless behaviour occurs behind the scenes in churches happily. And, of course, the Christ would respond to this far differently from religous folk. We see His handling this way: "They kept on asking Jesus about the woman. Finally, he stood up and said, “If any of you have never sinned, then go ahead and throw the first stone at her!” 8 Once again he bent over and began writing on the ground." (John 7:7-8). Ya know the story, regarding a women caught in adultery. The Pharisees were pushing Him to stone her. Instead, He did the unseemly thing of forgiving her challengin folks regarding their own sin. Nice angle. Hence in this account we find a way better stance toward approaching sex sin; forgive it and suggest the doer repent. Now that's real religion. Great Jesus, we do ask that You would kindly train us to handle sin this way. In Your name, amen.

FUNNY TO PONDER THE RESPONSE TO the Christ in His day. He certainly caught their attention. Consider the passion the Jewish leaders had about capturing Him. We find this curious comment: "When the temple police returned to the chief priests and Pharisees, they were asked, 'Why didn’t you bring Jesus here?' 46 They answered, 'No one has ever spoken like that man!'” (John 7:45-46). Why I find this remarkable is the amazement of the temple police at the words of the Lord; not figuring how best deal with it. Their statement speaks volumes to the veracity of this historical account. How can somebody read this and not pause to fully consider the deity of Jesus? Well, the better observation is how one ought to respond to this Person who captured the thinking of people in His day. Meaning, fact is He reigns among us constantly pressing His spirit against the skin of 7 billion people in our world. His intent? To persuade everyone to talk back to Him. So your response to Him ought to be to always be the person who regularly talks at Him. Since that's what He longs to experience. Given that He's communication--the thing the temple police experienced. Holy Jesus, we do ask that today You would so strongly press Your lovely Spirit against us that we can respond to Your grandeur. In Your name, amen. Peace of Christ to you.

THE HOLY SPIRIT REMAINS WAY TOO MYSTICAL FOR MOST PEOPLE. As though He really don't exist. But the reality paints a far better picture. Now I could go on and on about how much the Spirit could reside near you, but that would not fair nearly as well as hearing what the Christ has to say on the topic. He says this: "On the last and most important day of the festival, Jesus stood up and shouted, “If you are thirsty, come to me and drink! 38 Have faith in me, and you will have life-giving water flowing from deep inside you, just as the Scriptures say.” 39 Jesus was talking about the Holy Spirit, who would be given to everyone that had faith in him. The Spirit had not yet been given to anyone, since Jesus had not yet been given his full glory." (John 7:37-39). Why this counts for us is that the Spirit now fully lives among us if we wish to invite Him to our lives. But importantly, in this passage, is the notion that Spirit can continually flow from within you in the sense that you have chosen to pursue Him and welcome His nearness. What that does is make Him to guide you often. Not actually live in you. Since you sin and He cannot ever live in You. But He sure can reside right upon your skin just as often as you dwell your thinkin upon Him. As He longs for that. Powerful Jesus, please do prompt us often to pursue the Spirit You provide. In Your name, amen.

JESUS EVER SEEKS TO PERSUADE FOLKS TO CHANGE their thinkin toward the eternal. Lots of ways to do this. But the most prevalent in John seems to be the notion that we feed upon Him. Meaning, His essence ought to satisfy our inner hunger way beyond da physical. He comments this way: "But the bread from heaven has come down, so that no one who eats it will ever die. I am that bread from heaven! Everyone who eats it will live forever. My flesh is the life-giving bread that I give to the people of this world." (John 6:50-51). So how do we feed upon the flesh of the Christ? By understandin that it's spiritual. Right next to us all our lives. For the Messiah constantly prompts us to speak back to Him and indulge upon His presence. Strongest force in our world. And the happy outcome is we can confidently plan to go into Heaven, a place of eternal fun, ever living with so much more power than we know in this world. Powerful Jesus, please do grant us a deep hunger for feeding upon You and ever responding to Your prompting. In Your name, amen.

HAPPENS TO BE THE MOST ELUSIVE ENTITY in life. Your soul. But of course, by far most crucial./ Because God and the Word made you to experience Their touch regularly, since that's what they made final./ Tough due to the reality in life that until ya die you shall never sense your soul in this existence./ But when you come to grips with this deep meaning ya can actually experience spiritual sustenance.
ONE OF THE CENTRAL TRUTHS TO LIFE is that God made you with an abiding hunger for something better in this world. Makes a difference since everyone can access the absolute filling that meets the true hunger of their soul. Of course, hard to identify since the hunger actually derives from your spirit, the place that's eternal. Trust me, as the only person in the world who does not age, I know better than any that your spirit has to be your main concern when seeking meaning in this life. Jesus has this to say about it: "Jesus replied: I am the bread that gives life! No one who comes to me will ever be hungry. No one who has faith in me will ever be thirsty." (John 6:35). Know that the Messiah here speaks entirely about your spirit, not your body. Sure He knows ya need to eat and can easily meet that need. But His far greater concern is that you draw attention to the most important matter of attending to your eternal soul. Your body is perishable and weak. But your spirit remains eternal indestructible. Awesome Jesus, we do ask that You would impress on us the vast need to all You to feed our souls. In your name, amen.

FOLKS FOR SURE HAVE A TON OF CHOICE in how to carry out their time. Naturally, seekin the Trinity qualifies as among the best behaviours. But there's a quality of livin that makes such thinkin way more effective. We find Jesus comment upon it this way: "Jesus answered, 'God wants you to have faith in the one he sent.'” (John 6:29). So here we find the most valuable commodity known to humanity; have faith. I say not an easy thing cause ya never hear much discussed on the topic in churches. Much greater time is wrongly focused upon ethics and legalism. But at this moment you can be sure to live the right kind of life. One where you regularly ask the Trinity to grant you a bigger faith. And that's the quality of living that propels you into the true relationship that Jesus so longs for you to possess. For when you truly achieve faith, then ethics of course so much better flow from that, and you get on with living a life completely pleasing to the Trinity. Lovely Jesus, we do ask that You would please increase our faith. In Your name, amen.

THE GOAL OF OURS IS TO CATCH THE holy breeze that the Christ so wishes to infuse upon us./ Cause we must, must always know His character remains the same this day as when He captured the apostles' hearts./ We can certainly know that the holy heart of Jesus ever brims with a deep longin to win our thinkin to His cause./ So our response has to be one of simply gripping His person and hangin on for the ride of our lives.
IT ALWAYS BEARS CONTEMPLATION TO CONSIDER THE absolute power of the Christ. For He longs to place it in your lap. Hence it also, of course, warrants remembering just what He did while upon the earth since, to Him, that time occurred just a couple of thousand years ago. A blip in the trillions of years that the Messiah has been redeeming folks. Therefore, read this: "When the disciples had rowed for three or four miles, they saw Jesus walking on the water. He kept coming closer to the boat, and they were terrified. 20 But he said, “I am Jesus![f] Don’t be afraid!” 21 The disciples wanted to take him into the boat, but suddenly the boat reached the shore where they were headed." (John 6:19-21). What lucky boys to have been in that boat as the Messiah cruised up. But a way bigger vantage is ours this day to know that the same Messiah desires similar achievements in our world. He hasn't at all quit being Himself. So the solution this day is for you to allow Jesus to capture your heart now that you can soar with Him. Lovely Jesus, we do ask that You would capture our hearts to understand how You can move in our lives just as You did here. In your name, amen.

THERE'S A POWER AWAITING FOLKS that can be seen clearly in the story of the feeding the five thousand./ What makes this account noteworthy is how the Christ created food from nothing and fully fed so many./ Your job today is to turn your thinkin to pondering this enough to soften your heart extensively./ Then Jesus can enter your heart and do similar delightful things that draw you to Him.
IT'S ALWAYS A CHALLENGE FOR THIS DUDE TO communicate the wonder available to everybody. Since the Trinity live in me constantly and I'm always buzzed strongly. Of course the only soul ever like this. So I like to try somehow to share the essence of the love of the Christ for ya that you might connect with Him. What bears contempating for a bit is to fathom just what happened in John 6 with the feeding of the five thousand. We find this: "Jesus took the bread in his hands and gave thanks to God. Then he passed the bread to the people, and he did the same with the fish, until everyone had plenty to eat." (John 6:11). Here we find the lovely account of how the Messiah created bread out of thin air to such an extent that he made everyone totally full. Picture the massive bread appearing and the apostles happily racing around with basket fulls to the crowd. Talk about feelin happy. Hence our mission today is to take a moment to FEEL the magic of this account in our souls, opening them to Jesus this day. And then the Christ can transcend the key gap and make it into your soul. Powerful Messiah, we do ask that You would open our hearts to grasp the intense way that You can reach us with the same power that fed these folks. In your name, amen.

THERE'S A SERIOUS AFFLICTION GRIPPIN HUMANITY that robs many of eternal life and instead feeds them shallowness./ How can this be when the Bible ought to be central to religion? But that's the key problem souring many from/ The much more precious walk with the Trinity. Indeed, you can easily be a Bible expert and go to Hell./ Many do. But instead be Bible shallow and way deep in conversing with the Trinity, since that's what They love.
FUNNY TA THINK THAT THE BIBLE COULD in fact be a source of confusion. But it is indeed to many people. Why? Cause they grow up thinkin the Bible the cornerstone of faith. It ain't. The Bible is merely a guide to a much far more superior Heaven from whence true life flows. There must our attention focus, not scripture. But it's so hard when much of humanity acts like the Bible ought to be central to religion. Jesus never intended this. We find Him commenting upon the matter this way: "You search the Scriptures, because you think you will find eternal life in them. The Scriptures tell about me, 40 but you refuse to come to me for eternal life." (John 5:39-40). Here the Messiah addresses this major problem that also occurred in His day; people fixating on the Bible and ignorin the Life before them. But when you look around at churches isn't that the far more common practice: give the Trinity light attention and give the Bible a regular major focus. So our callin today is to be people 95% attended to conversations with the Trinity and only givin the Bible slight review. Dear Jesus, we do ask that You would please remind us to always center our attention to You and the Trinity rather than gettin hung up on Bible study. In Your name, amen.

BECOME A LIFELONG HATER OF SIN so you can experience the touch of the lovely Trinity./ For they, of course, don't sin and they also despise the practice for it damages humanity./ The way to play this is to become so disciplined in your living that you constantly reject any sin./ And then you enter a wonderful place of gaining the walk that thrusts you often into the arms of Heaven.
PEOPLE CAN BE SO CAVALIER ABOUT SIN. Like it's no big deal. Trust me, it's truly awful. I say this as the only person in this world, and for trillions of years, who does not sin. As a result, over the same time span, I'm the only buzzed soul with the Trinity living in me all the time. They've been lookin forward to my life for trillions of years. And that's why you should learn to hate sin and minimize it in your life, cause the Trinity hate it more than me. Jesus comments upon it this way: "14 Later, Jesus met the man in the temple and told him, 'You are now well. But don’t sin anymore or something worse might happen to you.' (John 5:14). The point here is the Christ's disdain for sin to this dude he healed; the Messiah despises sin. Hence your response ought to be to constantly minimize sin in your life. Why? Because when you do this you make yourself a vessel of the Trinity. Sin less and you personally become way more attractive to them. Ya so want that. Majestic Jesus, we do ask that You would strengthen readers here to always avoid sin. In your name, amen. Peace of the Spirit to you.
Sunday, October 12, 2014
EVER WAITIN FOR US TO RESPOND, the Christ patiently looks to the world for the few who might want His healin./ Know that He ranges all over you and the world seeking that sort of interest, longin for hungry souls./ Hence the question stands: do you allow Him to always fix your life or do you ignore Him?/ Naturally, the logical position ought to be that of submittin to His touch and get fixed.
FACT OF THE MATTER IS THAT JESUS STRONGLY LIVES AMONG US. Really matters when ya screw your head on straight and consider the opportunity He holds. We can gather the extent of this reality here: "Beside the pool was a man who had been sick for thirty-eight years. 6 When Jesus saw the man and realized that he had been crippled for a long time, he asked him, 'Do you want to be healed?'" (John 5:5). So to read this verse properly and gather the meanin, put yourself today in this dude's shoes. Knowing that the Christ desires to provide you a similar healing if you allow it. Because in this fallen world there shall always be a piece of your life incomplete, calling for healing. Hence the need of the moment is for you to always know the Christ stands before ya with this very question. Wishing you would respond. Thus, your response to this Lord who constantly longs for folks to desire rescue, is to allow Him to do it. Lovely Jesus, we do pray that You would please always remind us to ask You to fix our lives. In your name, amen.
Saturday, October 11, 2014
IT HELPS TO BETTER UNDERSTAND THE NATURE of the Christ. If you wish to engage Him in your life and see Him do some good stuff. Because He always wishes that you and I would simply often respond to Him and engage Him in our lives. We find an interesting illustration of just how to appeal to the Messiah here: "Jesus told the official, 'You won’t have faith unless you see miracles and wonders!' 49 The man replied, 'Lord, please come before my son dies!' 50 Jesus then said, 'Your son will live. Go on home to him.' The man believed Jesus and started back home." (John 4:48-50). What we find most valuable in this story is how the man pressed into Jesus when the Lord sought to push him away. Because, importantly, that is the very way He relates to us; for that's the style of Jesus. Ya see, the Christ shall always be foremost skeptical of people cause he's seen their waywardness for trillions of years. Therefore, if you really want to participate in His active care, you must like this man always keep stretching to convince Him that you're different and worthy of His awesome attention. Dear Jesus, we do ask that You would impress on our hearts to the need to consistently show You earnestness in our pursuit of You. In Your name, amen.
Friday, October 10, 2014
ALLOWING ONESELF TO BE TAKEN by the longin of the Christ to save the world happens to be His game./ He honestly wants to provide food and other necessities for you and your loves ones, but His bigger/ Dream is for ya to allow His daily prompting to save the world to take hold and pitch you toward savin others./ For this process simply delights the Messiah and puts you strongly in His lovely court.
WHEN YA GET SERIOUSLY HUNGRY, sure feels great to finally grab a meal. But in the Christ we find better nourishment insight. For to Him, from an eternal perspective, there's way better food to pursue. He puts it this way: "Jesus said: My food is to do what God wants! He is the one who sent me, and I must finish the work that he gave me to do. 35 You may say that there are still four months until harvest time. But I tell you to look, and you will see that the fields are ripe and ready to harvest." (John 4:34-35). Here we find the best view of what true hunger ought to look like. Adopting the need that resides in the Messiah's heart; to win souls to Him. Know that 24x7 He and the Trinity are prompting everyone in the world to talk back to them and be saved. And so, this day, His deep longing for ya is develop His hunger for winning souls to His glorious peace. Making them new creatures. Know that He constantly is prompting your heart to be about this work. So be sure to do it. Lovely Lord, we do ask that You would kindly deepen our hunger for reaching lost souls for You. In Your precious name, amen.

SO THIS DAY WE STAND AT A HAPPY OPPORTUNITY. To do religion God style, somethin beyond the shallow./ It's best understood by looking beyond the human weakness and strivin to reach that Spirit juncture./ That's why scripture must forever remain our anchor given that human weakness shall always propel/ Folks to remain shallow. So we gotta strive to embrace Spirit worship to achieve that lovely compel.
FUNNY HOW FOLKS OFTEN FEEL LED TO DO CHURCH STUFF. They certainly don't come up with it alone. Nope, the Trinity, of course, leads them to think spiritually. For they reign over it all and constantly prompt the world to think in spiritual terms that they might somehow make a connection with a Higher Power. We find a description of this area like this: "Even now the true worshipers are being led by the Spirit to worship the Father according to the truth. These are the ones the Father is seeking to worship him. 24 God is Spirit, and those who worship God must be led by the Spirit to worship him according to the truth." (John 4:23-24). But to get a handle on what true worship ought to appear like, we should contemplate this very scripture dat provides a strong answer. An appeal to think: spiritually. Let go of the human crap that causes folks to think shallowly and just go through a ritualistic form of church. Instead, do this very thing and see that real religion in our world is largely a Spirit endeavor. Somethin way beyond the typical. Lovely Jesus, we do ask that You would please guide us to worship You better in Spirit terms. In your name, amen.

BEING THIRSTY CAN BE A GREAT THING. As once you reach a drink, ya get to fell a lot better./ But in the Christ we find a far better refreshment found in a spiritual satisfaction dat truly rewards./ Hence the opportunity to abide in this awaits you constantly since the Christ always offers the drink./ So make it your often interest to reach for His spiritual drink that can satisfy as nuthin else.
WHEN TRYING TO WRAP ONE'S LIFE AROUND THE CHRIST, there remains some difficulty for sure. As He's invisible, though, of course, immensely close and powerful. Hence the call to reach Him regularly remains the most precious aspect of life. We see the Lord put it this way to the Samaritan woman: "Jesus answered, 'Everyone who drinks this water will get thirsty again. 14 But no one who drinks the water I give will ever be thirsty again. The water I give is like a flowing fountain that gives eternal life.'” (John 4:13-14). So that's the explanation of how to truly permanently quench one's thirst; connect with the Christ. For no matter how you play it, you're always gonna be thirsty until you ultimately reach ongoin fellowship with the Messiah. For His eternal water provides the deepest, most satisfying reward to your thirst. Make it a daily pursuit and always be satisfied. Great Jesus, we do ask that You would please reach our hearts with your precious eternal water. In Your name, amen.
Tuesday, October 7, 2014
SO WITHIN THE CHRIST WE CAN FIND a type of livin that surmounts all the pain of life and propels some/ Willin to take hold of Him to a happier place of walkin that allows for a deeper spiritual journey./ Arrivin at a destination of the purest form of fellowship ever known to people./ Hence makin anybody willin to grab hold of Him and the Spirit able to enjoy a precious flavor of kinship.
SO WHY'S IT SO CRUCIAL TO ATTEND TO THE CHRIST? Well, for starters, He's Creator and Author of life. Somebody that can free any who call on Him and provide everlasting life. We find this description of His way: "But everyone who does believe him has shown that God is truthful. 34 The Son was sent to speak God’s message, and he has been given the full power of God’s Spirit." (John 3:33-34). Quite interestin. These verses speak to a truth that offers amazin hope for folks at large. Cause in this we find the quality of life eternal that awaits all. Though few, of course, care to pursue it. But for those who do, they not only reach the joy of belief in the Messiah, they also get to share in that wondrous Spirit described her. Somebody so longin to live in many and see miracles actually happen this day. Lovely Jesus, we do pray that You would please open our hearts to faith in You and welcomin the sweet grip of Your Spirit. In Your holy name, amen. Peace of Christ to you!
SO WHY'S IT SO CRUCIAL TO ATTEND TO THE CHRIST? Well, for starters, He's Creator and Author of life. Somebody that can free any who call on Him and provide everlasting life. We find this description of His way: "But everyone who does believe him has shown that God is truthful. 34 The Son was sent to speak God’s message, and he has been given the full power of God’s Spirit." (John 3:33-34). Quite interestin. These verses speak to a truth that offers amazin hope for folks at large. Cause in this we find the quality of life eternal that awaits all. Though few, of course, care to pursue it. But for those who do, they not only reach the joy of belief in the Messiah, they also get to share in that wondrous Spirit described her. Somebody so longin to live in many and see miracles actually happen this day. Lovely Jesus, we do pray that You would please open our hearts to faith in You and welcomin the sweet grip of Your Spirit. In Your holy name, amen. Peace of Christ to you!

CATCHIN THE LIGHT AWAITS ALL OF US. To say the opportunity stands vast is quite an understatement./ Because though, thanks to Satan livin in everyone but yours truly, darkness shall always pull strongly./ Yet you can attain absolute purity even in this life by merely always tightly grippin the Light./ Making ya His partner in good doin. That propels you toward that joyful space of Light shinin through ya.
DARKNESS IS OF COURSE THE COMMON CONDITION of people. For the human draw to the dark side shall always be the pull that grabs nearly everybody and assures their future in Hell. But folks of course have a way better track should they be willing to employ a tad of self control and regard the Light. Consider this: "The light has come into the world, and people who do evil things are judged guilty because they love the dark more than the light. 20 People who do evil hate the light and won’t come to the light, because it clearly shows what they have done." (John 3:19-20). Darkness is way winnin. But thanks to the Messiah, the Light, He affords all of us a sweet opportunity. To gaze on Him and escape the eternal twist from darkness. Makin all of us way better in His hands. Hence the flavor he offers stands: Reach for the Light and find rescue from darkness. You can sin and just daily ask for forgiveness. Then happily enjoy depth so few know and rest upon Him. Holy Jesus, we do ask that You would please pull us always to yourself. In your dear name, Amen.

SPIRIT LIVIN. That's a huge opportunity for everyone. As the dear Spirit right now awaits all./ Hopin that folks might just open their hearts to His piercin longin to lift them to very high places./ Yeah, what He's after in us is to refute all the religous crap that ignores Him and attain that walk./ A happening that enlightens and provides sweet euphoria way to few have. So just reach and hold tightly to Him.
IT'S ALWAYS TOUGH FOR FOLKS TO LIVE SPIRIT LIVES. Cause the Spirit is invisible. Though fully available to all, He rarely gets noted in churches and remains lonely. But in the Christ we find a better explanation of the magnitude of the Spirit. Put this way: "Don’t be surprised when I say that you must be born from above. 8 Only God’s Spirit gives new life. The Spirit is like the wind that blows wherever it wants to. You can hear the wind, but you don’t know where it comes from or where it is going." (John 3:7-8). So why does the Messiah respond to Nicodemus this way? Because He attempts to explain a far better way of livin that even then awaited him. And there's wonder here for us. Found in our ever altering our thinkin to become always Spirit people. Cause the Spirit this day awaits us. Longin to be the wind that blows through our lives and drives us to happy places of incredible victory. Lovely Jesus, we do ask that You would kindly make us fully Spirit people. In Your dear name, amen!

THERE'S BEAUTY TO BE FOUND in the dear way that Jesus longs to surround you and me./ It's somethin that can drive us to places of incredibly intimacy with the Saviour to that rare connection./ An arrival that this day beckons us to surround ourselves with His magic, creatin amazin fellowship./ Yet the daunting task of welcoming Him constantly remain. Do you do it?
DON'T EVER THINK THE LORD misses your every detail. For His style is always about deeply knowing folks in order to happily connect with them. For He loves ya best. Consider this dear quote from scripture: "But Jesus knew what was in their hearts, and he would not let them have power over him. 25 No one had to tell him what people were like. He already knew." (John 2:24-25). It's all about allowing Him into your space. A spot He of course shall always claim. Thus, our response must always be to fully grasp His care and allow Him that precious space in our hearts. That He can move in sweet ways toward an arrival that smells incredibly good. Holy Jesus, we do ask that You would please touch our hearts deeply and change us toward ever welcoming ya into spaces. In Your dear name, amen!

SO WHAT IS CHURCH WORSHIP TO LOOK LIKE? Good question, since it so often appears terribly shallow./ Thankfully, in Jesus we find a passion unrivaled about absolute purity for God worship that transcends./ Pullin us toward a place of similar passion, striving for that precious burn that did fire in His heart./ It does await us today whenever we attempt to worship the Trinity.
IF YA EVER GET UNCERTAIN REGARDIN THE style of the Christ, scripture provides some insight. Worth considering since He upon the earth and today reflects the very nature of the Father. In the account of his visit to the temple where He attacks sellers of stuff, we find this curious summary: "The disciples then remembered that the Scriptures say, My love for your house burns in me like a fire.'" (John 2:17). It's this quality of the Messiah that ought to capture our attention; He shall always feel stronger about holiness than we. Presenting a beautiful quality that surmounts. Consider the fabric of His heart. He felt and feels way stronger than people about capturing the essence of worship at God's place. So always treasure that quality of His. Knowing that the fire in His heart for pure worship reigns way above what humans seem to attempt. Somethin to pusue always when ya get about worship. Lovely Jesus, please place in our hearts a strong measure of Your burnin for real worship. In your name, amen.

IT'S VERY FAIR TO REGARD DRINKIN wine as a good thing. This because our Lord turned a vast amount of water/ Into wine so his party could get ever more wasted. Hence it stands to reason we should assume the matter/ Of drinkin and occasional drunkeness as not at all evil. Instead it actually pleases our Saviour./ And lightens Him in a way that allows booze drinkin people to be pleased with such behavior.
SO MUCH FOR THE WIDELY HELD NOTION that alcohol is evil. For in His first miracle, the Christ turns a huge amount of water into wine. And this for a wedding party that stood wasted, having chugged all the available wine. And ya know that they served a ton of planned wine at the weddin. Hece it's very safe to believe that drinkin booze is sound in the eyes of God. You must understand, the Trinity could care less about drinkin and even getting drunk on occasion. Rather, what they really long for and love is people often talking with them in a submissive way. We read a summary of the event here: "This was Jesus' first miracle,[b] and he did it in the village of Cana in Galilee. There Jesus showed his glory, and his disciples put their faith in him." (John 2:11). So lighten up and live a Jesus regardin life. Be sure to party and have great times; since the Trinity love that sort of thing. Sure, regular excess ain't healthy. But far worse to get hung up on self righteous holiness that regards liquor as wicked. Great Jesus, we do ask that You would always give us a lighthearted attitude toward drinkin booze so we don't get hung up on self righteousness. In your name, amen.

YES, THE SPIRIT IS INDEED far more beautiful than this earth. For He longs to be in us and infuse folks with life./ Hence the question remains, are ya gonna always pursue Him and enjoy the sweet presence of His power?/ Because that precious weight upon you shall infuse a far better life than anything found elsewhere./ Givin ya dear times of far reachin power upon your person that simply cannot be attained without Him.
ONE OF THE MORE ELUSIVE ELEMENTS OF life in our time is the presence and power of the Holy Spirit. And why? Well, largely cause He's invisible and not God, nor Jesus. A much less well known entity that, according to Jesus, offers immense power to those willin to welcome Him. We find Him described this way: "I was there and saw the Spirit come down on him like a dove from heaven. And the Spirit stayed on him." (John 1:32) So why's this count? Because in this verse we gain a glimpse of how the Spirit can appear. Like a dove. Ya see, a dove is among the most beautiful creatures of God's creation, for they are regarded as symbols of peace. And, of course, like all of nature, the Trinity lives in a dove. Hence for us it bears thinkin about havin the Spirit upon us, that we can be like Jesus in all things. For the Spirit, as He did with the Christ, imparts the means to live happy Jesus bent lives. Awesome Lord, we do ask that You would please open our hearts to Your Spirit. In your holy name, amen.

THERE'S A WONDER SO AVAILABLE to us that longs to be so known with an infinite desire unmatched upon earth./ Whether we allow this beauty to enter our hearts or not remains a question beggin to be addressed./ We can certainly so easily miss this mystical experience and live shallow lives ploddin along./ Or we can do the far better thing of knowin His awesome majesty and seeking that in our lives.
ISN'T IT AN AMAZIN THOUGHT TO THINK that we mere humans can touch the heart of God, the creator of our world? Yeah, indeed. Yet, as ya know well, it's wonderfully true given the beauty of our dear Saviour. We read about it this way: "The Word became a human being and lived here with us. We saw his true glory, the glory of the only Son of the Father. From him all the kindness and all the truth of God have come down to us." (John 1:14). So that's the wonder of Jesus comin into the world. With Him came the wonder of God in His person. Thus, the option lay in our laps. Are we gonna soak in this loveliness or simply know it. For those attitudes are way a world apart. Sure, we can allow the livin faith to be merely intellectual and still barely make it. But how much better to often allow the majesty of God through Christ to grip your person. Lovely Jesus, we do ask that You would please open our hearts to allow the glory of God and You to fully live in us. In your sweet name, amen. I pray that God would open Heaven and come down to you with storm clouds under His feet so you can know Him better.

THOUGH THE WORLD AT LARGE, seems to think they know better than the Creator, we of course ponder differently./ For in Jesus we find a person who cares way stronger than anyone ever existing. In Him we find longing/ For you and all the world that shines brilliantly upon all of us all the time. Somethin dearly gentle./ Hence the calling upon you is to be one that always endears yourself to our Saviour.
WHEN ONE THINKS OF THE MINISTRY of the Lord Jesus, you cannot fail to miss the pain He must have endured. A hurt, of course, inflicted on Him by people at large. Most, of whom, didn't care to follow nor regard Him. How tragic indeed. But the happy side of this equation is the reality in our day. For we too have a great chance to regard the Christ properly. Consider His true place: The true light that shines on everyone was coming into the world. 10 The Word was in the world, but no one knew him, though God had made the world with his Word. 11 He came into his own world, but his own nation did not welcome him. (John 1:9-11). So yes, though folks at large disregard the Messiah, we, of course, know way better. And these verses spell the beauty of His coming that resides upon us this day. Hence upon you and me resides a deep and eternal need to be welcomers of the Lord, granting Him the regard so greatly demanded. Thus, always be a fan and enjoy His sweet fellowship. Holy Jesus, we do pray that You would please impress on our hearts the need to always adore you. In Your name, amen.

SO MUCH GETS MISSED WHEN FOLKS ponder the Christ. Many consider Him a worthy prophet and possibly god like. But that ain't, of course, close to the truth. The better vantage is the one of knowin He is not only God, but central to the creation. The very thing he Lords over today and chooses to shepherd toward salvation. He does this by quietly living super close to all people and constantly prompting them to commune back. We can know for sure His role in creation vital this way: "And with this Word, God created all things. Nothing was made without the Word. Everything that was created 4 received its life from him, and his life gave light to everyone. 5 The light keeps shining in the dark, and darkness has never put it out." (John 1:3-5). Beauty of this is grasping the preeminent place of the Christ in all our lives. Knowin all the time He fully lives intimately close to you and seeks your companionship. Not a bad relationship to have, that with the creator of our universe. Hence it becomes always worth our while to alot time to remember His true role: that of designer and sustainer of our world. Great Jesus, we do ask that You would kindly always impress on us Your key role in creating everything around us. In your name, amen. Peace of Christ to you.

SWEEPING POWER UPHELD IN HEAVEN. It's the reality that the Word and God have always lived and reigned./ Placing them in the distinct place of absolute supremecy over Their lovely creation./ And in turn granting us the opportunity to soar up with them in our thoughts whenever we can find the time./ Because gettin to that place of contemplating Their glory assures us the deepest peace ever known.
HOW BOUT A LITTLE MIND STRETCHIN THINKIN? Seems in John we can right at the start see the beauty of the Word and God presented in a fashion way beyond anything experienced in this world. Ethereal. And how can this help us? Well, first ponder this verse: "In the beginning was the one who is called the Word. The Word was with God and was truly God. 2 From the very beginning the Word was with God." (John 1:1-2). How this can help us today is to at times be sure to wrap our minds around this idea, to deeply grasp the wonder of the Word and God always living and choosing to create trillions of worlds to enjoy seeing some people turn to them,while most, of course, go to Hell. Of course I know this first hand as the only one in the world to have them always surging through me. But you too can fathom this and purely enjoy savoring Their wonder. Putting ya in a spot of fantastic joy. Our Jesus, we do ask that You would be so kind as to often turn our thoughts to your eternal majesty. In your dear name, amen.
Thursday, September 25, 2014
SO WHY SHOULD ANYONE BOTHER WITH A PONDER OF "JOHN?" Well, primarily cause this book is entirely about the deity and wonder of the Lord Jesus Christ. That One who came into the world to save it from their sins. And why's this matter? Primarily because all the world is prisoner of sin, except yours truly. And everyone desperately needs a Saviour to save them the entropy of sin that Satan designed and constantly applies to all, being sure that nearly everyone goes to Hell. As they do. Always know, every ten seconds 24 x 7 a soul goes into Hell. That's how terrible sin is. But if you can join this dude in ponderin "John," I know I can so help you find a major escape from sin. For that's the key reason our dear Lord Jesus came to this earth. Holy Jesus, we do pray that You would kindly guide through John to understand how You so want us to break free of in. In your holy name, amen. Peace of the Spirit to you.

REALITY IS THAT LIFE CAN PULL YOU TOWARD LAZINESS. Easy to do. But we find in scripture admonition to be a people of constant work and productivity Why important? Because, when you do the right thing you get to experience peace and longevity. Things that really make life a happy experience. Read the admonition this way: "6 My dear friends, in the name of[a] the Lord Jesus, I beg you not to have anything to do with any of your people who loaf around and refuse to obey the instructions we gave you. 7 You surely know that you should follow our example." (II Thessalonians 3:6-7). So there ya have it. Just be dilegent in life and you get to so please our Father. Makin Him proud of you and in fact you a much happier soul. Our God, please help us to be dilegent in work. In Jesus name, amen.

WHILE IT CERTAINLY CAN BE THOUGHT, that being truly like God is somehow evasive. Fact is, it's quite simple./ For scripture makes the cause apparent as something doable, even when we may not feel like it./ Hence, our mantra this day is to disregard fake religion and get busy with honest and simple lovin and kindness./ A thing that not only shall delight the recipient, but in a much more eternal way reward the Trinity.
CERTAINLY THE APPEAL FROM HEAVEN is for folks to be like Them. Not human. Difficult? Certainly, but absolutely attainable once we gather the idea from scripture, the obvious spot for understandin. Read it this way: "I pray that the Lord will guide you to be as loving as God and as patient as Christ." (II Thessalonians 3:5) Paul's prayer is along the lines of the Lord's true desire for you and me; be a people like them who is lovin and patient. A remote idea for many folks, including religous one. For most religion is fake. But in this verse we find the essence of what They so long for you and me to experience: real religion. For the real stuff can only be seen when reading scripture without humanistic glasses, that so point one to oblivion. Therefore, please do join me in ever becomin a people who behave this way and delight the Trinity. Dear Jesus, we do pray that You would often urge us to an honest people like this. In your holy name, amen.
Sunday, September 21, 2014
A HAPPY THOUGHT IS TO ALWAYS HOLD CLOSE THE understandin that God loves you dearly. Nice to be reminded of this. Why so important. Well, chiefly cause life is hard and wearin and it's vital to often remember God cares deeply for you. This scripture puts it this way: "God our Father loves us. He is kind and has given us eternal comfort and a wonderful hope." (II Thessalonians 2:16). You ought to always think in real terms about the Father; He's always incredibly close to you. Seems a lot of folks envision God as a distant person awaiting prayers to float up from earth. How terribly wrong. In fact, God remains super physically close to you at all times. How do I know this? Well, as the only person on the earth who enjoys God flowing through Him constantly, I feel His presence at all times upon people everywhere around me. (He does this cause I don't sin; He can't be in sinners, just close by) And, of course, I also feel Satan as he is also beside everyone all the time. The beauty of this for you is to always know that God is constantly always physically near you everywhere. And He is always prompting your heart to speak to Him and enjoy His sweet touch. Great God, we ask that You would often remind us of How close you are. In Jesus name, amen.
Saturday, September 20, 2014
IT'S THERE FOR YOU SO READILY AVAIL. Question is, are ya gonna chase it or do the typical weak stuff?/ For know this: faith is the fuel that propels people to spiritual miracles and a delightful growth./ Hence you live in a moment of vast power, a force so waiting to be grabbed and lived with huge power./ Do you do it? Or take the typical shallow ethics focus of so many? Nope, just live faith and allow in you Vigor.
IT'S ALWAYS NICE TO CONSIDER THE VANTAGE OF THE great Apostle Paul. For his vantage has enormous relevance to our day. And certainly not automatic in our world at odds with key truth. But we see this angle expressed this way: "My dear friends, we always have good reason to thank God for you, because your faith in God and your love for each other keep growing all the time. That’s why we brag about you to all of God’s churches." (II Thessalonians 1:3-4). So why is Paul braggin about this church? Good reason. For they did the key eternal thing that truly delights the Trinity. In that they built big faith. Faith! Yes, that commodity, little possessed in a world strugglin to be religous, happens to be the essence of what fires the hearts of the Trinity more fully than ANY other stuff. And happens to be totally available to you and me. So are ya gonna join me by getting on your knees daily and beggin the Lord for faith? Ain't too tough. But certainly way too rare. Why do I say this? I see a vast lack of miracles among believers; true evidence of a lack of faith. But you can join me in a faith push and make this your regular habit. Dear Father, we do ask that You would please place upon our hearts a deep drive to increase faith. In Jesus name, amen.
Thursday, September 18, 2014
SO TRUE THAT OUR SPIRIT ever longs to be held in our hearts. Yet the quandry remains: few do it./ Not that the Spirit ever denies anybody this privilege. Nope, He so long for our attendance to Him./ Yet human weakness remains the staggerin problem that prevents widespread power within our lives./ Nevertheless, and happily, we still can very much jump on this blessed wagon and relish His sweet glory.
THERE'S A SEVERE PROBLEM IN OUR WORLD, that just may have worked much beter here in the last trillion worlds. It's the problem of ever ignorin the power of God's Spirit about ya. Yep, happens way to much, to the massive chagrin of the Trinity. They, of course, long for folks to embrace the Spirit and the consumate miracles, but to little avail. Yet, let's check out the truth of this idea: "Don’t turn away God’s Spirit or ignore prophecies." (I Thessalonians 5:19-20). So there ya have it. Truth. Be told. Fact remains, whether weak souls welcome it or not, the Spirit surely longs for us to invite Him into our world and simply allow His glory to do glorious prophecies. So just do it. Holy Father, we do ask that You would be so kind as to ever put in our hearts a drive to welcome Your dear Spirit. In Jesus name, amen.
Sunday, September 14, 2014
HOWEVER WE CAN GET THERE, fact remains that the Trinity so long to hear our prayers as often/ As we can muster them. And why? Because They are, in essence, entities of Communication./ Hence, we should become a folk of frequent and prepared prayers shared with a Trinity/ That exists always beside us everywhere. Unseen to be sure, but always right there in our space.
THERE'S AN APPEAL IN SCRIPTURE for the people of God to live as a folk of continual prayer. Why this? Can't we just fire up prayers in church and before meals and let that be enough? Nope. Due to the Trinity being people who continually long to hear from us given each of them is Communication. Ya see, Them hearing from us is like our experiencing a high from drugs or too much booze; makes them delighted. Amazin, our words to Heaven act as a euphoric drug upon the Hearts of the Trinity. Hence their eternal hunger to hear our words flowing to Them. God writes about it this way: "Always be joyful and never stop praying." (I Thessalonians 5:16-17). Can ya get this? Yes, joy flows from prayin; but of course prayin can also flow from joy. Nevertheless, however ya get there, just always know that your frequent prayers make our Creators so terribly happy and you, of course, a joyful soul. Awesome God, please press upon us to be a people of continual prayers to you. In Jesus name, amen.
Saturday, September 13, 2014
OF COURSE IT'S ALWAYS DIFFICULT TO SHINE God's glory into the world. Since He's forever tough to emulate. But, fortunately, he grants us insight into how we ought to live. This way: "Encourage anyone who feels left out, help all who are weak, and be patient with everyone." (I Thessalonians 5:14). Does that feel too tender hearted to really put into practice? Shouldn't. For in this verse God presents the notion that we are to be the ever self denyin souls who constantly yearn to occasionally rescue somebody. Painful, but certainly attainable at some level. Probably not as a full time focus, since we gotta make a livin and care for family, etc. But for certain, there's gonna be some big opportunities at times to care for a person in need around us. Has to happen. For lives are gonna always break around us. So the choice is ours; are we gonna do the God thing and help a person here or there, or do the typical and ignore pain around us? Hear God here and be the compassionate soul who makes a difference for others. Holy Father, we do ask that You would please grant us soft hearts to help those in need around us. In Jesus name, amen.
Friday, September 12, 2014
ALWAYS A PROBLEM TO IMPLEMENT ACTUAL LOVE. And why? Because, love shortage shall ever afflict humanity./ Because humans now and for eternity will always resist lovin due to their innate selfishness./ Why nearly everyone goes to Hell. Yep, every day, thanks to dear Satan's temptation, 1 million go to Hell/ And just about 5,000 folks go to Heaven. So, ya gonna be lovin and go to Heaven or be typical and go to Hell?
YEAH, LIFE HURTS OFTEN AND REGULARLY IN our loveless universe. Since everybody but those who read this blog in our world think our universe is the only one that God ever created. So wrong. There have been trillions of universes before ours and shall be trillions more. Actually, infinite numbers of worlds as God loves to create them and try to teach you and me about love along the way. So let's consider what true love looks like: "May the Lord make your love for each other and for everyone else grow by leaps and bounds." (I Thessalonians 3:12). So there you have the dynamic of what true love should appear like. It's somethin that ought to always grow in the hearts of His followers, making them engines of lifelong growin love for folks about us. Hence the question prompts you and I. Are we gonna allow God to cause love to grow within us by "leaps and bounds?" For that is what He so wants to do all the time. And of course prompts our hearts every day to do just that. Infinite Father, we do ask that You would please open our hearts to love this way. In Jesus name, amen. Peace of Christ to you.
Thursday, September 11, 2014
EVER LOOKIN FOR SOMETHIN MORE EXCITIN IN LIFE? It's to be found often and powerfully in faith./ That commodity in short supply in nearly all, but crucial to doin the great deeds They suggest we ace./ The hope of faith awaits us only when we can get to that sweet place of actually asking for it./ A spot ever ready to be joined and shared in daily, a place of great power that pulls us beyond life's clip.
SO WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO TRULY BREATHE? Well, in reality, speaking of the breath of life, it don't suggest the everyday joy of livin. Nope, when we understand God's perspective, we gain a vision of true vitality. He puts it this way: "Your strong faith in the Lord is like a breath of new life." (I Thessalonians 3:8). In God's eye, faith is actually really breathing, actually livin. In this verse he suggests the difficult obvious: faith is the essence of livin. How to do that? Not hard, actually. The calling is to everyday be sure to pray for a bigger faith, asking for a faith as big as heroes of faith in the Old Testament, to God. And heroes of the New Testament, in your prayers to the Christ. For faith is the thing they absolutely long to see in our lives. Therefore, let's always be a people who daily pray these sort of prayers and find ourselves building a strong, mighty faith that can bring huge healing and rescue to those around us. Great Father, we do ask that You would please turn our hearts toward building faith. In Jesus name,amen.

IT'S INSPIRING TO READ OF PAUL'S TRIALS in his writing to the Thessalonians. He states how much he wanted to visit them, but, curiously, Satan stopped him from doing that. He describes it this way: "We really wanted to come. I myself tried several times, but Satan always stopped us." (I Thessalonians 2:18). Is that not strange that God allowed Satan to do this? Yeah, but that's reality for the strong believer. I know this as Satan regularly causes me severe trouble. But, in the end, I always end up winnin. And my troubles are always far worse from the apostles since I don't sin and they, of course, did. Daily Satan takes his eye off tempting the six billion people of the world in order to exert his full power to give me loud ringing in my ears. Since that is the only evil thing the trinity daily allows him to do to me. But some days he pounds my body and severly hurts it or steals things from me and makes them disappear. Nevertheless, I continue to tell him regularly how much I love him, as his work is vital to life for people. And I ask you to always adore him for that reason, rather than simply fear his temptations. Holy Father, please make us people who shall always love Satan for the wonderful work he does ruling over Hell, where nearly all people go. In Jesus name, amen.

IT SURE STANDS TO REASON that there's a unique opportunity for us to share a dear message to the world./ Question. Are ya gonna do it? Or, are ya gonna be like folks at large uncaring for a dying people?/ That, my frieds, is our challlenge and huge opportunity. To be the sort of souls who really care./ And with that, of course, the life that brings eternal salvation to at least a handful of souls.
WE DO LIVE IN A SPECIAL TIME. Entirely because you and I hold within our hands a scripture that offers unbelieveable wealth. Nothin weak here. Nope, what we've got is a message that can actually lead folks from death in this world to very special eternal life. Paul writes about the idea this way: "God was pleased to trust us with his message. We didn’t speak to please people, but to please God who knows our motives." (I Thessalonians 2:4). So the opportunity for you and me today is to be people like these apostles: souls who always undertake to share this dear message. For He is trusting us now to be that kind of souls. Those who are always interested in extending the beauty of a message of undying magic to the world. Are ya gonna do it? I sure always will and I do pray that you would join me. Holy Father, we do ask that You would please help us to always be happy to share you dear message. In Jesus name, amen.
Monday, September 1, 2014
LET'S FACE IT, LIFE CAN be very hard. But the great thing about our faith is how well we can possibly handle it. Since we ain't alone. A nice illustration of this is to consider the Thessalonians. They likely faced far harsher physical sufferin than we. But it says nicely in scripture that they handled it well. This way: "You suffered, but the Holy Spirit made you glad." (1 Thessalonians 1:6). We see some magic they experienced that is certainly available to us today. Be a person who welcomes the Spirit. But certainly not easy since the Spirit is invisible and only arriving in our lives upon request. Hence the ongoing call is for us to regularly pray directly to the Spirit and welcome Him into our world. This creates a strong bond and allows the Spirit to richly bless us with peace and many other great things. So don't get down if other believers care little for the Spirit; few do. Instead, be a soul who constantly reaches for His longin to enter our hearts and gently guide us to sweet shores of joy.

HOW TO CARRY ON LIKE JESUS WANTS? Sure, that's the elusive problem and also the opportunity./ To be a people shaped into His dear image. Ever longing for that sweet touch He promises from eternity./ Somethin you can do fairly easily if ya just keep your heart always upon Him and allow,/ Then creatin dear, mystical livin that is rarely found in this world. But awaits you.
ALWAYS THE QUESTION OF HOW TO RESPOND. With a Messiah ever longing for your communication, the opportunity stands. Somethin fragile entirely due to our humanity. Now you can't be near always in Him like me, but you can surely be somebody easily enterin Heaven and treasuring sweet eternity. The better side. How do you get there? Well, Jesus gives us a precious insight this way: "50 Jesus led his disciples out to Bethany, where he raised his hands and blessed them. 51 As he was doing this, he left and was taken up to heaven.[f] 52 After his disciples had worshiped him,[g] they returned to Jerusalem and were very happy. 53 They spent their time in the temple, praising God." (Luke 24:50-53). And isn't that the beauty that awaits ya? Sure it is. And the easy part is the fine way the Christ awaits you to imitate the apostles. Nuthin too hard in that. So just do what they did: allow yourself to blessed by Him; praise Him and get busy carryin out His work. Fine Jesus, we do ask that You would be so kind as to always remind us to praise You this way and do the great duties you offer. In your sweet name, amen. Peace of Christ to you!

IF WE ARE TO GET SERIOUS ABOUT the enormity of what the Christ offers us, then we can do some serious good with our lives. For He promised the stuff to the apostles that is certainly available to us today. We find it described this way: "49 I will send you the one my Father has promised,[e] but you must stay in the city until you are given power from heaven." (Luke 24:49). So what we find here the apostles heard, is Jesus promised them the Spirit and power to do their ministry; stuff fully available to us today if we are willin to pursue it. How do I know this? From the scriptures but also from personal experience. Since I'm the only person in the world who doesn't sin, I constantly have the Trinity surging through my body so I sure know their existence quite personally; I feel high all the time, just as kids and animals do--since they don't sin. Hence be assured the Trinity rule over our world and long to hear from you. Great Jesus, we do pray that You would please enable us to realize that You today give us Your Spirit and empower us from Heaven to do great stuff for you. In Your name, amen.
