How to Get Your Heart to Say Yes to Christ

God made us: invented us as a man invents an engine. A car is made to run on petrol, and it would not run properly on anything else. Now God designed the human machine to run on Himself.
C. S. Lewis

Mr. Lewis puts a profound truth so simply. Hearts are engines that drive the human machine.

We are designed to live completely dependent, fully satisfied if you will, on Christ alone!

Additives

When we try to run on anything other than the pure essence of Christ, we end up wearing ourselves…

13 “My people have committed a compound sin:
    they’ve walked out on me, the fountain
Of fresh flowing waters, and then dug cisterns—
    cisterns that leak, cisterns that are no better than sieves.
Jeremiah 2:13, Message

We can do ourselves no greater favor that to forgo the substitutes we try to fill ourselves with and go straight for the good stuff!

WhatYouDo

How To Excel At Loving What You Do

You are not defined by what you do, but you are defined by how you do it.

Scott Silcox

When I heard this statement I was both shocked and encouraged. Shocked, because I was forced to examine how I do things that I like and dislike. Encouraged, because I had room to grow.

You Are A Partaker of The Divine Nature

You Are A Partaker of The Divine Nature

“…By which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world because of sinful desire.
2 Peter 1:4

Divine

To be a partaker of the divine nature is not, of course, to become God. That cannot be. The essence of Deity is not to be participated in by the creature. Between the creature and the Creator there must ever be a gulf fixed in respect of essence. But as the first man Adam was made in the image of God, so we, by the renewal of the Holy Spirit, are in a yet diviner sense made in the image of the Most High, and are partakers of the divine nature.

Let's Drink Our Fill This Evening

Let’s Drink To The Full This Evening

“Your love is better than wine.” Song of Solomon 1:2

Nothing gives the believer so much joy as fellowship with Christ.

He has enjoyment as others have in the common mercies of life; he can be glad both in God’s gifts and God’s works. But in all these separately, yes, and in all of them added together, he does not find such substantial delight as in the matchless person of his Lord Jesus. He has wine which no vineyard on earth ever yielded; he has bread which all the cornfields of Egypt could never bring forth. Where can such sweetness be found as we have tasted in communion with our Beloved?

How To Know God Hears You

How To Know God Hears You

As a son, I have the ear of my Father.
Fully Satisfied Manifesto

He Hears You

Let’s settle this once and for all: God hears you. Period.

13-15 My purpose in writing is simply this: that you who believe in God’s Son will know beyond the shadow of a doubt that you have eternal life, the reality and not the illusion. And how bold and free we then become in his presence, freely asking according to his will, sure that he’s listening. And if we’re confident that he’s listening, we know that what we’ve asked for is as good as ours.

1 John 5:13-15, Message

Neighbor

How to Give Your Neighbor Exactly What They Want

I once dreamed of launching revolutions, sparking movements, mobilizing the masses, and changing everything. Now I’ve learned the beauty and profound significance of simply loving my neighbor.

Jim Palmer

There’s nothing wrong with revolutions, movements, mass outbreaks, or turning culture on its head. But none of that is worth much if you fail to reach your neighbor. I don’t mean “reach your neighbor” in the sense of making another notch in your spiritual belt. It’s time to love everyone without an ulterior motive. Is this possible? I’d like to think so.

Are You Really Separated From God?

There is no separation from God.

Fully Satisfied Manifesto

Hemmed in. Caught up. Surrounded. Captured.

Where could I go to get away from your spirit?
    Where could I go to escape your presence?
If I went up to heaven, you would be there.
    If I went down to the grave, you would be there too!
If I could fly on the wings of dawn,
    stopping to rest only on the far side of the ocean—
10 even there your hand would guide me;
even there your strong hand would hold me tight!
11 If I said, “The darkness will definitely hide me;
        the light will become night around me,”
12     even then the darkness isn’t too dark for you!
        Nighttime would shine bright as day,
        because darkness is the same as light to you!

Psalm 139:7-12, CEB

Why do we feel separated from God? Perspective. Plain and simple. But, I also think there are two distinct types of separation.

How to Convince Christians to Sin

Those born from God don’t practice sin because God’s DNA remains in them. They can’t sin because they are born from God. 10 This is how God’s children and the devil’s children are apparent: everyone who doesn’t practice righteousness is not from God, including the person who doesn’t love a brother or sister.

1 John 3:9-10, CEB

If you are a child of God you can’t sin. If you’re a child of your shouldn’t practice sinning. So, how do you convince a Christian to sin? You make them forget their true identity. It’s that simple, really.

You Need to Believe What You Preach

You Need to Believe What You Preach

Eventually, how you live will “out preach” what you preach. Preach what you live.

Jesus is famous for a lot of things. Healing the sick. Raising the dead. Casting out devils. Dying for our sins. Being raised from the dead. Ascending to the Father.

He’s also pretty famous for how He interacted with the Pharisees. Let’s talk about that.

Let’s state this up front: Jesus loves everyone.

We recently talked about holiness. Holiness is about sharing. Holiness is about looking like Jesus. Holiness is about representing God. But does your holiness make you happy? It should.
