1 John 2:3 Now by this we know that we know Him, if we keep His commandments.
Do you know Jesus? I’ve known Him for 33 years. I knew about Him for 39 years but in all my church going I never met Him until I reached 39 and then I realized what a waste the first part of my life had been. Now I know Him and the more I know Him the more I realize there is more to know. The Holy Spirit has turned me inside out, cleaning up the mess I made in those 39 years, and yet there are still little parts of me that want to cling to the old ways. His new way is SO simple and yet so difficult to achieve. All He asks is that we love one another so much we become one.
Because ‘to love’ is an action and requires moving, sometimes, when I am truly walking the love walk, I can feel His legs walking right inside of mine. That’s not so unusual. The Bible says He lives in us. He loved the world so much He gave His life for it. What’s His commandment? To love one another as He loved us and to really do that we have to know Him and obey Him.
Writing has been in my blood, so to speak, but when I surrendered my life to Jesus Christ and He told me to write, all my trepidations rolled away and I began in earnest! After all, if God Almighty says it was His idea that I be a writer, who am I to stand in His way? My hope is that you not only like what I write, but that your life is moved by it, and that your party to Jesus and with Jesus turns your life into days of Heaven on Earth.
