Walking with Jesus is a rich, vibrant, life-giving, satisfying experience. It’s something I will not give up for anyone.
There are many who will never “Darken” or I should say, “enlighten” the doors of a church, because they know this, and the light they walk in is continually put down, by those who think they know better.
What I am saying is never going to be popular with the religious crowd. Those who take pride in their church attendace, rather than rejocing in their walk with Jesus,
can never comprehened the depths and riches of God’s love.
Why? Because he gives grace to the humble.
Growing is not ‘surviving’ and just “getting throug something” by the skin of your teeth. It involves getting to know Jesus in a deeper and deeper way, through every single trial and Joy.
Growing is understanding how to live in the light of Jesus, and that light involves full exposure of every bit of darkness within us.
While we undersand we are loved and cherished by Jesus, we also understand the more light of his truth we allow into our hearts, that much more of him, will be seen.
We can have as much of him as we want, or we can choose to only allow a thimble-full of HIM to live withiin us.
Everything he said in is his word IS LOVE! WE must adapt to him, not the other way around! He changes for no one!
” This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all. If we say that we have fellowship with Him, and walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.
If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His word is not in us.” 1 John 1-8
