A Whole Person…

Chrisitan Perspectives Comments Off on A Whole Person…

Ephesians 3:14-21 (KJV)

14 For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
15 Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,
16 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;
17 That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,
18 May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height;
19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.
20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,
21 Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.

Have you ever wondered if you are a “whole person”?

We all have struggles in life that could make us feel incomplete, but the apostle Paul says we can be “filled up to all the fullness of God” (Eph. 3:19).

What does that look like?

A whole person is generally satisfied with life. He feels loved and is able to love others in return.

Difficulties and hardships don’t devastate him, because he is able to go through them with confidence in God.

He isn’t a complainer or someone who’s quick to blame others.

A positive attitude guards his mind since he knows that the Lord will work everything out for good (Rom. 8:28).

Being a Christian doesn’t automatically make us feel complete.

Fullness comes only when we experience God’s love.

Do you feel the Lord’s love, or do you see it as just a biblical fact?

If you long for wholeness, the key is to genuinely experience a one-on-one relationship with Jesus Christ.

This is possible only when you are willing to open up and let the Lord search your heart.

He will reveal what’s holding you back from accepting His love.

Being a Christian doesn’t automatically make us feel complete. Fullness comes only when we experience God’s love for us. For many years, I knew theologically that the Lord loved me. I even preached about it, but I didn’t really feel it. Only after I took a deep look at my life and started dealing with events that had fractured my soul in childhood did I begin to experience His love in an intimate way. Once I felt the security of His love for me, I discovered great joy in walking in obedience to His will.

The reason was that I knew I could trust Him to meet all my needs in His time and way.

Do you feel God’s love, or is it just a biblical fact to you? If you long for wholeness, the key is to experience an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ. This is possible only when you’re willing to open up and let the Lord search your heart.

Faith, The Heroic Effort Of Your Life…

Chrisitan Perspectives Comments Off on Faith, The Heroic Effort Of Your Life…

Revelation 3:10 (KJV)
“Because thou hast kept the word of My patience.”

Patience is more than endurance.

A saint’s life is in the hands of God like a bow and arrow in the hands of an archer. God is aiming at something the saint cannot see, and He stretches and strains, and every now and again the saint says – “I cannot stand any more.” God does not heed, He goes on stretching till His purpose is in sight, then He lets fly.

Trust yourself in God’s hands.

For what have you need of patience just now? Maintain your relationship to Jesus Christ by the patience of faith. “Though He slay me, yet will I wait for Him.”

Faith is not a pathetic sentiment, but robust vigorous confidence built on the fact that God is holy love.

You cannot see Him just now, you cannot understand what He is doing, but you know Him. Shipwreck occurs where there is not that mental poise which comes from being established on the eternal truth that God is holy love. Faith is the heroic effort of your life, you fling yourself in reckless confidence on God.

God has ventured all in Jesus Christ to save us, now He wants us to venture our all in abandoned confidence in Him. There are spots where that faith has not worked in us as yet, places untouched by the life of God. There were none of those spots in Jesus Christ’s life, and there are to be none in ours. “This is life eternal, that they might know Thee.”

The real meaning of eternal life is a life that can face anything it has to face without wavering. If we take this view, life becomes one great romance, a glorious opportunity for seeing marvellous things all the time.

God is disciplining us to get us into this central place of power.
