Hopelessness is not in the vocabulary of the believer.

We, as children of God, always have hope in our possession.

How Guarantees Once Saved the World

Our faith in Jesus transfers God’s righteousness to us and he now declares us flawless in his eyes. This means we can now enjoy true and lasting peace with God, all because of what our Lord Jesus, the Anointed One, has done for us. Our faith guarantees us access into this marvelous kindness that has given us a perfect relationship with God. What incredible joy bursts forth within us as we keep on celebrating our hope of experiencing God’s glory!

Romans 5:1-3, Passion Translation

We have a wellspring of joy that finds it’s source in God’s glory! The hope of this glory is the simple belief that Jesus is our guarantee!

What I Wish Someone Had Told Me Before Marriage

I am so thankful for my marriage. Is it easy? No. Is it fun? Sometimes. Is it worth it? Absolutely!

As of this writing, Anna and I have been married for over 11 years. We dated for about 10 years before that. With all that time we’ve spent together, I would have thought we’d know each other better. Marriage is a journey. Marriage is a quest to know each other better.

Here a few things that I wish I had known before I got married. Maybe they’ll help you now and in the future.

How to Get Your Heart to Say Yes to Christ

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!

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

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.
