Christ in Me: This is True Life:
"I have been crucified with Christ, and it is no longer I that live, but Christ living in me. That life which I now live in the flesh, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself up for me." (Galatians 2:20)
Yes, yes, yes! God's love is better than life itself. God's love is what brings life - eternal life, abundant life. God's love is what makes us new, makes us whole inside, gives us vibrancy in our eyes, and fills us with irreplaceable, imperishable joy. Nothing can ever separate us from His love. Nothing can ever weaken His love. Not even our deepest, darkest sins or secrets can hamper God's unconditional love. God knows the very depths of our hearts, and still He chose to make them His home. We don't have to "clean up" for Him to come in. He says, "Come just as you are. I'll take care of the rest." This is Christ living in us! This is what true living is all about! God is Love and this Love is Life!
"By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who called us to himself by means of his marvellous glory and excellence. And because of his glory and excellence, he has given us great and precious promises. These are the promises that enable you to share his divine nature and escape the world’s corruption caused by human desires." (2 Peter 1:3-4)
Sharing in God's divine Kingdom and escaping this world's horrendous corruption - which so burdens us on every side - begins when we invite His Holy Spirit into our own souls. It's a beautiful gift and a glorious journey! My heart is forever changed for the better. I've never felt such deep joy and satisfaction. He takes us deeper, He leads us higher, He calls us onward. He is with us and for us. Would you invite Him in today? Imagine the celebration that should erupt in the Heavens!
O hungry souls, let His joy exude... Allow Him to plant in you the hope of joy that is the Seed of His Spirit. Come to the Wellspring of His exuberant life and Living Waters. Let Him breathe in You His Breath of Life...
"And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being." (Genesis 2:7)
Come breathe us to life O Lord! Come gives us a new purpose... Purpose to be captured by Your beauty... Held within the grasp of Your gentle grace... Selah...
