To Be With Us

The agent of communication across the impossible distance between the existence of the Lord and man is the Holy Spirit. We were created in His image in that we have been given a spirit of our own. We are created with the ability to hear and speak with our Creator. Thus communion and relationship are possible between the natural and the supernatural. 

He has done this because He wants to be with us.

Take It To The Limit

Though our flesh and world have distinct boundaries, our spirits have no limit.

Confidence Of Change

1 Corinthians 15:50-52 ESV 

I tell you this, brothers: flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. Behold! I tell you a mystery. We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, in a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, and the dead will be raised imperishable, and we shall be changed.

The change begins when we trust the Lord and place our faith in Him. The change is made complete at the last trumpet. If there is no change during our life, can we be confident of change at the end?

Seeking His Face Book

We can’t follow Jesus on Facebook, though we can follow Him through a Book known as the Bible. We might even see His face among its pages. It’s possible to see one’s own face in the words before us as we read of the problem of mankind and its solution. It certainly can open our eyes. 

Spend a little time in that book to network with Christ. 

By the way, He won’t block you or unfriend you.

A Swimming Advisory

Genesis 1:6 ESV 

And God said, “Let there be an expanse in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters.”

The expanse that separates mankind from God is contained in our hearts. It separates the waters from the waters. The waters of heaven sparkle in the light of Christ. The waters below are covered by the darkness of the deep. 

We will swim in one sea or the other.

Without God

Our self knowledge is incomplete without knowing God. 

No matter how accomplished we are, or the breadth of our possessions, without God we will never know our poverty of life. We will never rise to our potential and attain the riches of heaven.

At Your Word

Luke 5:1-5 ESV 

On one occasion, while the crowd was pressing in on him to hear the word of God, he was standing by the lake of Gennesaret, and he saw two boats by the lake, but the fishermen had gone out of them and were washing their nets. Getting into one of the boats, which was Simon's, he asked him to put out a little from the land. And he sat down and taught the people from the boat. And when he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, “Put out into the deep and let down your nets for a catch.” And Simon answered, “Master, we toiled all night and took nothing! But at your word I will let down the nets.”

Hearing the word of God from the shore is quite different than from hearing it and moving into the water by acting on it. 

It is in the waters of mankind where the net of the kingdom of heaven is filled. These are the dark waters of the deep before light was spoken into creation.
