My Divine Devotions: When your soul makes a connection to home

December 16, 2010
1 Peter 1:8 You have not seen Christ, but still you love him. You cannot see him now, but you believe in him. So you are filled with a joy that cannot be explained, a joy full of glory.

There is unexplainable joy in the life of a believer who has received restoration from the blood of Christ. The moment your eyes are opened to the great sacrifice made by a God who chose to become a man like the ones he created, your soul makes a connection to home. The formal God from church (or religion) no longer exists.

In place of a cold, unreachable god, the real Christ reveals his essence to your soul and a deep bond of salvation is formed. The human decides what to do with that bond of salvation. When one chooses to explore the bond, true Christianity begins. True Christianity begins in knowing that you are a friend of Jesus, a child of God and taught and guided by the Holy Spirit. Our mind relates to the human Jesus and, thus, love, unlike any ever experienced on earth develops. The love of Jesus restores relationships and lives, and shines light in the darkness.

15 And they will say about you,
“The LORD always does right! God is our mighty rock.”

Houston - we have a problem
I confess that before the 2016 presidential election, I wasn’t interested or concerned about participating in government or politics.  
That changed on Nov. 8, 2016.  
It’s now painfully clear how important it is to know what our elected politicians are doing on local, state and national levels. It’s time to shake ourselves out of complacency. We must be involved in directing our basic American rights, our policing, our healthcare, our financial lives and more. Our families depend on us.
The best way to do this is to get to know your elected officials and to vote.
Consider running for office or supporting someone you think has the gifts to be a politician. Our families are in crisis, our healthcare is in crisis, immigrant families are in danger and law enforcement may not be serving the interests of people of color   We need people who serve the interests of the majority of our communities
These are my recommendations: Get together with your family, friends and…
