It Is A Gift!

If you’re a hard worker and do a good job, you deserve your pay; we don’t call your wages a gift.

But if you see that the job is too big for you, that it’s something only God can do, and you trust him to do it—you could never do it for yourself no matter how hard and long you worked—well, that trusting-him-to-do-it is what gets you set right with God, by God. Sheer gift.

Romans 4:4‭-‬5 MSG

This is Salvation, uprightness, righteousness, joy, peace, and much more like discernment, wisdom, beauty, contentment, and life itself is a gift! No amount of money can buy you those!

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?

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.

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.”

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.

Resting In Him!

“What I’m trying to do here is get you to relax, not be so preoccupied with getting so you can respond to God’s giving .

People who don’t know God and the way he works fuss over these things, but you know both God and how he works.

Steep yourself in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. You’ll find all your everyday human concerns will be met.

Don’t be afraid of missing out. You’re my dearest friends! The Father wants to give you the very kingdom itself.
