Are You Your Hearts Best Friend?
"The truth, for which I would give my life, must also be the truths for which I am living!" The New Covenant heart must be at the apex of that list. Many die for family, friends, country—but not enough value their own heart that high! The heart is mentioned over 1,000 times in the Bible.
We have spent and wasted so much time in our Christian history trying to get "there" when "there" is where we begin! (Our very origin is) Co-seated…by God's doing! We… Continue

"So roll up your sleeves, put your mind in gear, and be totally ready to receive the gift that's coming when Jesus arrives. Don't lazily slip back into those old grooves of evil, doing just what you feel like doing. You didn't know any better then, you do now. As obedient children, let yourselves be pulled into a way of life shaped by God's life, a life energetic and blazing with holiness. God said, 'I am holy; you be holy.'
"You call out to God for help and he helps--he's a good… Continue

‘The goal is for all of them to become one heart and mind-Just as you, Father, are in me and I in you, So that might be one heart and mind with us. Then the world might believe that you, in fact sent me. The same glory you gave me, I gave them, So that they’ll be as unified and together as we are-I in them and you in me. Then they’ll be mature in this oneness, and give the godless world evidence that you’ve sent me and loved them in the same way you’ve loved me.’ John 17: 21-23
Let’s begin… Continue

You and I are the connection the world is desperately looking for. In 2017 you will become that connector! How is that true? First, the world is disconnected from the one and only true God. And that is not His desire or doing. God is clearly the initiator of authentic relational connection. He has done and provided everything necessary to be connected to him. In the vernacular of teen age romance, he has been 'hitting' on us for all eternity.
"Thank God because he's good, because his… Continue

Up front; you need to understand, there are ‘no’ quick fixes or formulas in life. I had been told that repeatedly by people wiser and further down the path than me; but still held on to the illusion of proving them wrong. Even after walking with Jesus for 39 years. The closer I get to Him, the more I am overwhelmed with the need for a Savior. Also, my life experiences are proving them right. Hold on…the really great news; the darker or tougher life seems to get, the brighter the light of His… Continue

"So here's what I want you to do, God helping you. Take your everyday, ordinary life--your sleeping, eating, going-to- work and walking around life---and place it before God as an offering" Rom. 12:1 The Message.
"Make sure you don't take things for granted and go slack in working for the common good; share what you have with others. God takes particular pleasure in acts of worship--a different kind of 'sacrifice'--that takes place in kitchen and workplace and on the streets" Heb.… Continue

"Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don't get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes." Matt. 6:34 The Message
Living in the moment, in his presence, may be our biggest daily challenge. Why is living connected to present provision and intimacy with Papa so difficult? We are so easily distracted. We are so easily side-tracked. We are so easily worked up about what may… Continue

Jesus is so excited about His partnership with you in this world, that He said the following: I am not praying that You take them out of the world (John 17:15 HCSB)
He saw something of greater value in man than in heaven, and for that reason He emptied heaven, emptied Himself into human form (Phil 2:7) Have a collision with Jesus in you this New Year! Ron Ross
