The truth of Christ in me, as me ia that He is the Source of Life. We often are unaware of who He is impacting through us and how.
I'm not interested in a casual cerebral knowing, I wanted that deep awareness only Christ gives. I needed Him to say, “I see you, John!”
I can easily conceive of my desire to know God, but to comprehend that I am known and seen by Him? Wow, the Lord sees me whether anyone else sees me or not.
You know, just the smallest drop of Christ’s Life is enough to send ripples across the whole landscape. And where those waves go is out of our purview.
It is one thing to spend time with someone, but it is quite another to see them. To see the person, not just a person, is a enormous gift to that person.
I have had a hard time imagining that God wants to spend time with me. I understand my pursuit of Him, but that He would desire to be with me? “He really yearns to be with me?”
During our recent server transfer to a new host I saw a principle of life that I experience daily. It’s not easy to live out. Living life listening not knowing.
In a world where God is regularly displaced, we can witness a living principle: the position we allocate for God becomes our own living position.
And knowing that my efforts are not adequate to satisfy God, then how am I to fulfill the many requirements of God on my life?
Christ’s revealing of His Life in me is for His pleasure and purpose, not mine. His revealing is not from our desire, as earnest as it may be, nor through our efforts to have it be so.
God said it is better to remain single, if possible, while at the same time God says we are to be church, which is two or more gathered together. This is my takeaway.
The enemy isn’t given free rein to ravage me. My enemies are only allowed to devour my flesh; they can’t claim my spirit.
