Come to the Feast

Jesus has set a table of extraordinary delicacies before us, beloved ones.

He anoints your head with the oil of gladness and fills your cup so that it overflows without ceasing. In the joyous times and in the painful moments, despite the trials and persecution of life, He want to continually feed you with the knowledge of Himself and His love (Psalm 23:5). Feed upon His faithfulness.

All are welcome to come to Him. You who hunger and thirst for true love, beauty and authenticity are welcome to come. There is no cost, no perfect perormance required, for He has paid the price. All He wants is your heart, so come freely to receive of His (Isaiah 55:1-3). Continue reading

Union of Hearts

“Someone once asked, ‘Do you know God?’ But there’s a question that is far more important: Does Good know you? The issue on the great day of judgment will not be whether you know God but whether God knows you.”
– Bob Sorge, Secrets of the Secret Place

In that day, many will say they know God, saying, “We did so much in Your name!” Despite their exclamations, they did not have a genuine, intimate relationship with Jesus. They did not talk and walk with Him, the Person, though they knew about Him and did things for Him outwardly. Inwardly their hearts were far from Him, like the religious folk of Jesus’ day (see Matthew 7:21-23).

Love God, and love others; in doing so, also love yourself as God loves you. Of all things, love is of the most importance, and if our actions do not stem from the roots of love, they profit nothing (1 Corinthians 13:1-3; 13).

Jesus tells us, “Abide in Me…” He spoke not only of abiding in His Word, but in Him and in His love (John 15). Abide, have your dwelling in Him, friendship. Intimate relationship where you disclose all of you, your thoughts, your feelings, your sins and faults, your victories and hurts.

True communion is more than reading about God and His Word or talking to Him, but the union of our hearts to God’s, where we allow Him to speak and respond to us, letting Him move upon our hearts with His love, light and truth.

May we pursue the most important ambition in all of life, the very purpose for which we were made: Relationship with God the Father, His Son Jesus and the Spirit of God living in us. For this reason we live and breathe, to be loved and to love, growing in intimacy day by day.

 

He’s Singing His Love Over You

To all sons and daughters of God:

God loves you! He loves you beyond description! God’s love for you is infinite and unquenchable! He is never mad at you in any way if you are continuing to pursue His heart through any struggle or when you fall into temptation.

God DELIGHTS in you. He rejoices over you! God made you and His desire is to lavish you with His amazing love! He made you to LOVE you – that’s why He sent Jesus to take away our sins – He wants to have a relationship with you.

God loves you no matter what you’ve ever done, been through or had happen to you. He’s not going to punish you for your past or even remind you of your mistakes. His Word says that He quiets you with His love, making no mention of your past sins.

Listen… Do you hear Him singing over you, speaking softly of His love for you?

God calls you wonderful – made wonderfully by Him.
God calls you valuable – of more worth than sparrows.
God calls you beloved – the apple of His eye.
God calls you His child – adopted into His family and Kingdom.

God calls you His! He loves you!

(Go back to the sentences above and click on the linked words for Scripture verses to touch your heart with His love.)

The Lord your God is in the midst of you, a Mighty One, a Savior [Who saves]! He will rejoice over you with joy; He will rest [in silent satisfaction] and in His love He will be silent and make no mention [of past sins, or even recall them]; He will exult over you with singing.
Zephaniah 3:17 (AMP)
