There's a controversy over lordship salvation. Yet after we’re saved, if we don’t begin to make Jesus Lord of our lives, I would question that salvation.
I am willing to make an investment of listening in prayer. The investment of time is a surrender of my heart and a yielding of my life.
There's a beautiful encounter Jesus and Nathanael had, I love to think about it. It's the moment Nathanael’s heart ignited with personal knowledge of God.
Our preference for the Lord’s presence here on earth provides a simple snapshot of our desire to be in His presence in heaven.
We can’t have Christ without the Spirit of Christ, which is the Holy Spirit. While in the Spirit of Christ, His movements are more real than anything we see.
I thought I had to micromanage my life or it'd go to hell in a handbasket. Second guessing and believing He can fail to keep our path. It's not possible!
For the Christian there are no true intimate relationships apart from being in Christ. When all of our relationships are in Christ, then all of our knowing is of Christ.
There's only ONE relationship. We connect with people all the time, but even with all these connections, there is only ONE relationship in them all—GOD.
Life's to be lived in the moment. Truly this moment is all I have. Only in the present moment can we experience our place of union and relationship with God.
In my quiet times with God do I have a shopping list that has to be filled by the Great Grocer in the sky and my payment is whatever gyrations He requires.
Christ made it so that He would speak Life through us. The Spirit anoints my life and then He can bring forth words that deliver His Life.
There has to be a beating heart behind His words we deliver or they are just words formed together making up sentences.
