It’s all about your personal relationship with Jesus – John 3:12-15

Divine Note #1 - Monday, Jan. 5, 2009

Many people who lived when Jesus was on Earth had a hard time believing that He was the Son of God. Jesus understood it and in John 3:12-15, He tells Nicodemus, a leader of the Jews, that unless he believed that it would be impossible for the Jewish leader to understand “heavenly things.”

As Christians today, we have divine revelation through the Bible and through our relationship with the Holy Spirit of God. I believe that Jesus reveals his purpose for our lives when we surrender our plans to his will. But many of us refuse to allow him to take control of our stressful, busy and hurting lives.

It’s all about relationships
Join with me this year and make your relationship with Jesus the top priority in your life, Philippians 3:10. I believe that if I fulfill his purpose for my existence that it will strengthen the relationships in my life that need healing.

  • Decide to spend time with God. Pray. Listen. Be quiet. Take action.
  • Do what God asks you to do. When you do what he asks, it becomes an anointing for you. Take it from me, get off the couch and just do it!
  • Decide to heal your relationship with yourself. He loves you. Believe it.
  • Make sure your relationships are real. God puts you with people to give back to them. He made us to be interconnected with each other.
I have so much work to do; I hope you will join me so our lives can have the significance that God envisioned for us.

Sin on the journey

Before I know it, sin drips from my mouth and floods my mind. Oh the struggle.
Romans 7:22-23 I love to do God’s will so far as my new nature is concerned; but there is something else deep within me, in my lower nature, that is at war with my mind and wins the fight and makes me a slave to the sin that is still within me. In my mind I want to be God’s willing servant, but instead I find myself still enslaved to sin. So you see how it is: my new life tells me to do right, but the old nature that is still inside me loves to sin. Oh, what a terrible predicament I’m in! Who will free me from my slavery to this deadly lower nature? Thank God! It has been done by Jesus Christ our Lord. He has set me free. 
My current struggle is in not easily recognizing the extent of my sinfulness. I can easily preach it, but continuous righteous living eludes me.
Ouch. It hurts. I reveal this because I love the Lord with all my heart, mind and soul, but the sinner in me wins. It's the same struggle the A…
