Marriage: Just Jesus- Answers For Life

Marriage mirrors God’s covenant love for us as in the union between Jesus and His church.

God’s purpose or intention for marriage is companionship that reflects His love.

God is not alone nor does He want us to be alone. Learn to live out the capacities God designed for you and bring them into your marriage.

Sacrificial relationship leads to deep and lasting love. It’s what makes marriage not easy, but safe.

Respect and appreciate each other with kindness and understanding.

We all have different gifts that we bring into relationship. No two marriages look alike. What’s good for one may not be good for another.

What matters are not external appearances, but rather heart issues.

Working out our life issues in a covenant relationship is the safest place for transformation.

No one will speak truth to you like your spouse.

Marriage is the crucible of life transformation.

Does your marriage mirror God’s love?

Intimacy! He Knows You!All Nation!

Nothing is as soothing and calming to your soul as a being than to know that you are known, inside out and loved all the same. Your imperfection, weaknesses, inadequacies, all your shortcomings and much more is what qualifies you to be who you are! If you are without all those squirms, you actually are not qualified for a touch from him, Christ Jesus. 

textgram_1536146280321811886.pngChrist came for the lost sheep of the house of Israel first, he gave the command to take away all squirms. Matthew 10: 5 These twelve Jesus sent out with the following instructions: “Do not go among the Gentiles or enter any town of the Samaritans. 6 Go rather to the lost sheep of Israel. As you go, proclaim this message: ‘The kingdom of heaven has come near.’ Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received; freely give.

Last Testament – Christ Jesus also said in Matthew 28:18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 1Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

Friends, He knows you! Jesus knows you deeply! He knows all about you and factored you in before the foundation of the world was made. In all ramification, you are washed cleaned by his blood! You are made whole and complete in Christ – Colossians 2:10 

Are you a Jew or a Gentile? All nation are called, all with physical, emotional, mental, relational and all sort of infirmities are called! This is the gospel!

Those that know this must proclaim so that those others will hear and come! John 10:14 I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me—15 just as the Father knows me and I know the Father—and I lay down my life for the sheep. 16 I have other sheep that are not of this sheep pen. I must bring them also.

Psalms 139:1 You have searched me, Lord,
    and you know me.
You know when I sit and when I rise;
    you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying down;
    you are familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue
    you, Lord, know it completely.
You hem me in behind and before,
    and you lay your hand upon me.
Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,
    too lofty for me to attain.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

 

My Love Like No Other!

Declaration Prayer: Just Jesus – Answers for Life

Jesus is the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning.

Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

Jesus grew up in the LORD’s presence like a tender green shoot, like a root in dry ground. There was nothing beautiful or majestic about his appearance, nothing to attract us to him.

He was despised and rejected— a man of sorrows, acquainted with deepest grief. We turned our backs on him and looked the other way. He was despised, and we did not care. Yet it was our weaknesses he carried; it was our sorrows that weighed him down.

And we thought his troubles were a punishment from God, a punishment for his own sins! But he was pierced for our rebellion, crushed for our sins. He was whipped so we could be healed. This is my Jesus, Whom I love and serve.

Inspired By: Revelation 22:16; John 1:1-5, 14; Isaiah 53:2-5.

Knowing Him!

A bystander said, “Master, will only a few be saved?”

He said, “Whether few or many is none of your business. Put your mind on your life with God.

The way to life—to God!—is vigorous and requires your total attention. A lot of you are going to assume that you’ll sit down to God’s salvation banquet just because you’ve been hanging around the neighborhood all your lives.

Well, one day you’re going to be banging on the door, wanting to get in, but you’ll find the door locked and the Master saying, ‘Sorry, you’re not on my guest list.’ “You’ll protest, ‘But we’ve known you all our lives!’ only to be interrupted with his abrupt,

‘Your kind of knowing can hardly be called knowing. You don’t know the first thing about me.’ “That’s when you’ll find yourselves out in the cold, strangers to grace.

You’ll watch Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and all the prophets march into God’s kingdom.

You’ll watch outsiders stream in from east, west, north, and south and sit down at the table of God’s kingdom. And all the time you’ll be outside looking in—and wondering what happened.

This is the Great Reversal: the last in line put at the head of the line, and the so-called first ending up last.”

The Companion! His Spirit!

“If you love me, show it by doing what I’ve told you. I will talk to the Father, and he’ll provide you another Friend so that you will always have someone with you.

This Friend is the Spirit of Truth. The godless world can’t take him in because it doesn’t have eyes to see him, doesn’t know what to look for. But you know him already because he has been staying with you, and will even be in you!

“I will not leave you orphaned. I’m coming back. In just a little while the world will no longer see me, but you’re going to see me because I am alive and you’re about to come alive. At that moment you will know absolutely that I’m in my Father, and you’re in me, and I’m in you.

“The person who knows my commandments and keeps them, that’s who loves me.

And the person who loves me will be loved by my Father, and I will love him and make myself plain to him.”
John 14:15‭-‬21 MSG

Strength, Like No Other!

I have enjoyed the goodness of God so much that I can’t but declare to you friends! The Lord is good. He is faithful and dependable. The Lord is my strength and my salvation.

Whatever you need is in Christ saving grace! You can count on God’s unfailing love!

In the fulness of Christ strength, his power and grace, I am lifted up! You are lifted up!

And you! Yes, you! You can be lifted up too!!!!

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Defined By Love! Period

Now I’m returning to you. I’m saying these things in the world’s hearing So my people can experience My joy completed in them.

I gave them your word; The godless world hated them because of it, Because they didn’t join the world’s ways, Just as I didn’t join the world’s ways. I’m not asking that you take them out of the world But that you guard them from the Evil One.

They are no more defined by the world Than I am defined by the world.

Make them holy—consecrated—with the truth; Your word is consecrating truth.

In the same way that you gave me a mission in the world, I give them a mission in the world.

I’m consecrating myself for their sakes So they’ll be truth-consecrated in their mission.
