Who am I?
Nobody in the grand scheme of this world. But… I’m a guy who desires to live out to His full potential. God says I can walk like Jesus did, God says I can have all the promises, God says… God says… so I’m just a guy who says YES LORD to all of this – and more.
I’m a guy with issues, limitations, problems… and in my Father’s eyes… I’m wonderful and perfect and holy and without blemish. Do you know why? Because I am in Jesus and Jesus is in me.
I’m a guy with a messed up story… but my future looks nothing like my past. And do you know who gets the credit for that? Yeah. You guessed it.
Let me tell you about the God I follow
All I did in the grand scheme of things was keep staying with Him, keep asking, keep knocking, keep praying. (Well… that was hard enough!)
And He did the rest. Woohoo!
About my writing
Everything I write, I have lived and tested myself. If the life and death of Jesus set me free, I am 100% sure and convinced He can set you free too if you
- turn to Him
- learn about and believe what He says He did for you
- and act on it (behave like it’s real)
It works for me, my life HAS been restored.
It’s my hope that you will listen, hear, believe and walk in it – and then it will work for you.
Here are some of the Christian principles I live by
Getting free and living free is dependant on what you believe – so start by deciding if you believe the bible is written literally and then decide if you believe it exactly. If the bible says the sky is blue, will you believe the sky is blue? Are you prepared to walk by faith and just believe what God says… or not?
I think – and in my experience – the world around us is more spiritual than we think, but the commands in the bible are more practical than we think.
Because it’s an issue of being practical, we’re requested to be in a partnership with Jesus. We are responsible for some things and He does the rest.
God loves you
God is not a performance-based God, He is relational. Jesus is not angry with you, He loves you. You do not have to prove yourself to Jesus, just come to Him and ask Him to come make Himself known to you. No matter what you have done in your life, God loves you. No matter what you have done today, Jesus loves you and will work with you to restore your life and help you.
What happens quickly? What takes a while?
Righteousness and justification are one-time events that happen when you believe He did it for you. Don’t miss out on it, because it’s the fundamental base on which the house is built.
Most other promises – power over the demonic, healing, freedom – depend on you receiving Jesus’ righteousness and justification as your own! If you don’t accept what the *bible* says He has done for you, then you shouldn’t really expect the promises that flow from what He has done either. Makes sense huh?
Maybe you don’t know what the promises are? I didn’t either. So I bought books, loaned books and found books that spoke of the promises in the NT, the names of God, the promises of what the Messiah (Jesus) would achieve when He arrived. On that basis, I was able to understand more fully what He has done for me.
But then I still had to belive it.
But… once you have that, it’s all downhill from there. Promises like “being changed into His image” are a process that last a lifetime. But they struggle to happen unless you believe that you have His righteousness and justification.
After that, it’s just a process. The things you need in your life (like healing) CAN happen in a “power event”, but if it doesn’t, then it will happen over time as a process. Why a process? You’ll learn a lot from God, or be changed by Him throughout that process.
God wants you to have an abundant life
Don’t accept anything less. Don’t go on and on denying yourself what is rightfully yours because that is just “religious” behaviour according to the NT bible. Seek after your inheritance. Want it. Ask for it. Be renewed in how you think!
Denying yourself doesn’t mean denying your character or denying yourself love or anything good. Denying yourself means to not be excessive in anything and to stop doing things that are hurtful to yourself, God or the people around you.
Remember: all things are permitted, but not all things are helpful. So yes perhaps you can do it, but should you?
Jesus dealt with sin once and for always
Jesus has dealt with sin on the cross (once and for all) for those who believe in Him. The bible says that when He comes back it WON’T be to deal with sin. It’s dealt with.
What remains is for us to leave our old behaviour patterns behind, be renewed in our minds and to grow into maturity as we walk with Him.
The bible says that all sins are equal in God’s eyes, but the spiritual and practical consequences that wrong behaviour can lead us into is not all equal. But there is also God’s grace and that protects us from some consequences and we can get forgiveness and be restored. God loves you no matter what you did or still do.
But hey! Be patient with yourself! Good thing take time to be built. You’re a good thing and getting better.
Almost everything in Christianity is a process – except for salvation, justification and righteousness. So for the rest, be patient with yourself. It might start today and finish in a month’s time. Shorter. Longer. But you will get there. You will. He will see to that.
And the good news is that regeneration sometimes is an event too… although mostly I find it’s a process.
Love one another
There is nothing more important than loving each other.
The word “love” is in the bible 551 times.
Loving one another must be balanced with the need to maintain our own boundaries and protect ourselves. It’s a practical thing… just be sensible!
The cross has two bars – one is vertical (perhaps symbolizing our need to love God) and one horizontal (perhaps symbolizing our need to love others).
Everything Jesus did, He promised that we would do and greater still. We can never *be* Jesus, but since He is *in* us, we can (if we want to) be like Him because He is IN us (and we are IN Him). The only limitation to how much you become like Him is how much change you are willing to go through in your walk with Him.
Patience is a very useful personality trait in a Christian. Whatever you can’t do… God can do in you and through you. Just ask Him. Ask and keep on asking. Knock and keep on knocking.
I hope your time spent in this blog will bless you and encourage you to reach for the highest Godly vision that you can imagine. As someone said: if you can see it, you can have it.
God loves you.
