Life

Jesus is Life…and that means there is no death in Him at all! He is exuberant, joyful, fulfilling, ever-blessing and ever-refreshing life..

His very life is our life, sustaining and carrying us along in Life. His Spirit of Life gave us our breath.

In Him is no death – this tells me He is never, ever destroying me, hurting me, tearing me down, crushing me, or sucking the joy or vigor from me – NO! He is always building me up, invigorating me, filling and fulfilling me!

Jesus said eternal life is knowing Him, and to be part of His very life, eternal and immutable, is to know Him with a depth of intimacy that I can’t even fathom.

Jesus is the fullness of pure love, without a bit of harshness,  He is refreshing and enlivening, never taking away from my quality of life but always making it infinitely better.

Jesus is life ... the living water of the Holy Spirit bubbling up and overflowing in my life.

Jesus is a deep well of constant reassurance and pure love and grace inside me.

Jesus is life, joy and freedom inside me.

Radiance

There is a radiance in the delight of God
that he is delighted with me
that he is delighted with Christ in me
that he has entered  time and space
that he has made my heart his home
my life is now his life
my resurrection happened the moment he entered my life and dwelt in me
that is my New Creation life
I am created new in Christ
not washed clean but created new
my hearts is new
my spirit is new
I now feel and know the Holy Spirit alive in me
and everything that says it is not so
has been taken away and destroyed
I am who God says I am
and the same radiance that lights up creation lives in me
never to be extinguished
but to shine in me throughout eternity
to transform me into the very image of God.

Reborn into Innocence

In Christ you were reborn into a time of innocence.

You were reborn into the goodness of God into a New Creation devoid of evil. For where there is the light of God darkness has to be extinguished. Light and darkness do not share the same space.

It is the revelation that you now in Christ, you are Holy and righteous in your Spirit and the former darkness that invaded your thinking, your desires and your actions has been eradicated by your new birth into the fulness of God.

Our past, our sin tainted nature died with Christ.

And just as the natural, nature with the abundance of yellow daffodils, Spring gives us a real picture as we see them take root and flourish in the rich phase of a new season, we now in the spirit receive the purity  and innocence of new life.

For within us even before we believed and were made new there was calling that believed in a place of joy, an existence of bliss. That we we created to be part of an eternal dance of love.

Today you have in Christ been reconciled back into the arms of your Father and the love your heart cried out has been placed into your new innocent heart.

When Did We Stop Listening?

There are voices all around us.
Talking
Shouting
Whispering
Trying to get our attention.
Telling us, informing us, calling us, advising us, speaking at us.
Principles
Laws
Steps
Giving us meaning, efficiency, substitutes and functions.
If we listen!
More the often we hear a series of problems that need to be solved or principles that need to mastered.
But the desire of Christ is not to engage our intellect but to ignite our hearts.
He whispers to us with His passion,
He captures us with His dreams
He heals us with His wounds,
He delivers us from our fears,
He wraps us in His beauty,
He reveals to us His mystery,
He touches us with his ecstasy,
He sings to us with His poetry,
He loves us with His everlasting delight.
If we listen
Christ is calling to us in every moment of life.
Inviting us into his life of beauty and intimacy.
Awakening us to His glory alive inside of us.
His voice is always speaking to us,
When did we stop listening?

Jesus is the mediator of a new covenant

Jesus is the mediator of a new covenant between God and man by being both parties in the covenant at the same time, joining us together in such a deep way in human flesh and cementing our union forever in His body! In Christ, we meet and join hands with Christ in intimate relationship!
God is saying to us through Jesus, “I’m here with you, always have been and always will be. I am not going anywhere. I am never getting out of this relationship. I am never pushing you away or rejecting you. For I have tied us together forever and there is nothing you could say, think, do or even believe that will break this union we have! I will never leave you or let you go! I will be here for you through thick and thin. You can’t shake me! You can’t get rid of Me! I am in this relationship for keeps, and I will hold you close to My heart forever!”

Tied To God

Jesus came and tied us to God permanently. Jesus is God and He is man. He is God and man in one body! Jesus shows us what we humans are, that we were created to be in union with God, we were made God compatible – not separate from God but made of Him and existing in Him and even indwelt by and in union with Him! He shows us we aren’t hopelessly alienated from God – that is only in our minds, heaped upon us as we try to live under religion’s demands and perspective.

In Christ we are actually one with God and He with us! Union with God isn’t an unattainable goal but the starting point of our journey from which we launch out into real life and the pleasure of enjoying friendship with our Father!

Our reference turns out, not to be Adam (who felt he was ‘just flesh and dust’, which left him feeling separate from God), but to be Christ (who knew He was in the Father and the Father was in Him)!

Finding out that this is our reference helps us realize that we can actually in Christ have a real relationship with our Father and not feel like pulling back in shame or in fear of what He might do to us. For Jesus comes and gives us a different and true picture of the real God! That God is for us and will never leave us, no matter what we do! This God is so committed to relationship with us that He took on our human flesh form, permanently tying Himself to our humanity.

Our Story

Too often in life we start at the beginning and work our way to the end.
Like a bestselling novel we start with the rags, work our way through the storms and heartbreak before we reach the final happily ever after.
And more often than not we identify with the storms and heartbreak of the present  because that is the centre of our story.
But this amazingly is not reality.
For the reality of the universe and history is Jesus Christ.
And the declaration of Jesus is "IT IS FINISHED. "
So the story of our life is now the story of our life in Christ.
Our story now starts with the finished work of Christ.
Our story starts at the end and works it's way back to the present.
Our story starts from the victory of the resurrection.
Our story starts from the finish line and the gold medal placed around our neck
Our story starts from the New Creation.
And the Holy Spirit works in and through us to declare and show us that we now live in the truth of the New Creation.
We now look back to the cross and now live in the truth of the resurrection .
We don't look forward to the resurrection we live in the day of the resurrection.
Christ is our finished line.
And we are complete in him. .
Jesus Christ is our past, present and future.
We are now alive to Him.
And all the promises of God are YES and AMEN in Christ.

Complete

One of the most amazing revelations of the Bible is that God accepts you.
God accepts you because Christ's finished work at the cross was complete.
His finished work means that today in Christ you have
Complete victory
Complete freedom
Complete restoration
Complete wholeness
Complete release
Complete life
Complete restoration
Complete peace
And you have been filled with complete faith.
And you are accepted in the grace and goodness of God
And you are the realisation of what the goodness and love of God is.
You are the worship of God's heart
You are the fulfilment of God's dreams
You are the delight of God's desire.
And the best thing you could ever do is receive and delight in God's love for you.
For as you love yourself God is glorified.
As you love yourself God is worshiped.
For loving yourself in Christ is manifesting what God is like.
For in Christ you are the evidence of the love and goodness of God.

Opportunities

Every day we have hundreds of opportunities to engage with the negativity that surrounds us.
In a world full of diagnosis and treatment
We engage the destructive by nullifying it's pain.
More often than not we think in terms of managing and limiting the onslaught of bad news.
But engaging the negativity does not get rid of it,
Instead it is defeated by the positive.
And the positive is rooted in the truth.
For it is knowing the truth that sets us free.
It is a change of perspective
A change of view
A transfer from darkness into light.
A growing awareness of the Holy Spirit inside us, teaching us to realising the New Creation life that now lives inside of us.
The starting point for every situation and circumstance should be Christ.
For in Christ we have arrived and are seated  with Christ in heavenly places.
Christ is the answer.
So let us start with the answer before we are consumed with the questions.

Waiting

Life is full of times of waiting.
Buses
Doctors
Trains
Kettle's boiling
Microwave pinging
An email in your inbox
Waiting for an answer
Waiting for a connection
Waiting for the word that will change everything.
Waiting for a yes or for a no.
And God is waiting for us.
Not to run to him because He has already arrived inside us.
Not to call out to him because He inhabits our thoughts.
Not to strive because He is our rest.
He waits for us to realise the treasure we have inside.
He waits for us to live in the connection we have with him.
He waits for us to respond to his whisper.
He waits for us to live from the Spirit within and not the feelings that dominate our thoughts
For the Spirit within our hearts is our compass, our peace, our constant connection with heaven.
It's heaven within our hearts.

Fences

We are surrounded by fences
Fences we build to keep the unwanted out.
Fences to protect our possessions.
Fences to keep, to hold.
But fences keep the glory of God out.
Fences keep the presence of God hidden.
Jesus broke down those fences we built.
In Christ there are no fences.
In Christ there is no need to hide.
For Christ took our shame and gave us his innocence.
Christ took our fear and gave us his love.
Christ took our condemnation and gave us his freedom.
Christ took our captivity and gave us his liberty.
Christ took our guilt and gave us his righteousness.
For his life is freedom from the captivity of the fences we built.
His life in us is the glory of God without limits.

Unique

You are not wrong to be unique.
There is something in most of us that makes us think that being different is somehow incorrect.
We are often encouraged to hide our uniqueness and suppress what is special.
But we are specially designed for life.
Specially designed to live in life-giving conciousness.
No matter how many preaches and sermons you hear and no matter how many scriptures you read, until the life-giving Spirit breaths on you, you will not truly believe.
For the Spirit changes earth into heaven.
The Spirit brings resurrection life into our heart.
The Spirit declares to us that we are now co-seated with Christ.
The Spirit gives life to our bodies.
When Jesus breathes his life into our hearts, He fills our specially designed uniqueness to come out from the darkness and be filled with light .
His life tells us that in Christ we are one with him.
The life of Christ united with our uniqueness.

Grace Whispers - IV

You are a child of your Father's love and you are beautiful, a captivating image of your father's love and everytime He looks at you it reminds him of the consuming passionate love that created you.

Grace Whispers -lll

Your worth, your value, and your significance is not riding on who you are or what you do or what other people think of you.

It is riding exclusively on what Jesus has already done for you.
