God is—and always has been—about liberation. Liberation for our soul, for our entire being.
There can be no complete and enduring liberation without living in the fullness of His Will, and without His Will living fully in the midst of creatures. His Volition and Spirit alone can set paralyzed man free.
Yet it is He who sustains my life every instant of every day.
God is inexhaustible life, continuous creation, eternal renewal.
If we only knew how close God is to us. Even the word “close” is misleading because God is closer than close. His very Spirit sustains us. Our souls are particles of his Being that never die. And so He causes us to exist every moment as the Life-Giving Spirit within. read more…
Have you ever been in love? So much so that you easily gave your heart and soul to another person? To someone you trusted with all your being and could give your whole self to? read more…
What man lives today as religion—or irreligion—will one day give way to the original and supreme reality: life solely within God’s dominion, stripped of all human agendas, mechanisms and props. read more…
God does not heal us or make us whole so we can return with more vigor to our old ways of selfishness and sin. Though He leaves us free to decide, He heals us to live a fuller life in Him.
Jesus often told those he healed to go and sin no more. But He could say to all of us today, ” Go and do your own will no more, but live fully in mine.”
To go and do our own will, to live a life focused on what we can get for ourselves—whether honor, riches, praise or human indulgences of every sort—would be an act of ingratitude and a total misappropriation of the love and generosity of God.
Let us be deliberate in our own response when God restores us to wholeness. Let us give our thanks by always living his will. By putting the old man away and living as a new creation in Christ.
Leave the “adult” behind.
Childlikeness is the Price of Admission
If the price of entry into the Kingdom of God–His Divine Will–is to become as a little child, then we must understand what that means and pursue it all costs. read more…
In our excitement and quest to experience Heaven on earth, we often fail to receive all the gifts Christ wants to give to us at Christmastime.
He shares with us the very gifts presented to Him by the three Wise Men:
- The refined purity and spiritual wealth of gold
- The incense of prayer that unites us to the Eternal Will of God
- The bitter myrrh of human suffering
I often wonder if I’m really acting in the Divine Will. If I’m connected to God’s “electrical current.”
We’ve been taught that no matter how small the act, it can participate in the Divine, Eternal Act of God.
Yet, when making my acts in the Will of God, I usually don’t feel or sense anything at all. It seems like I’m living in God’s Will by blind faith, by desire alone. read more…
What is that holy, authentic personality? What is personality as seen through God’s eyes?
Most would agree that each soul is unique. At least those who haven’t been totally brainwashed by today’s culture and have not given themselves entirely over to their animal nature.
Our souls are like the seeds of different grapes planted and nurtured in different soils and climates, producing a variety of flavors. read more…
How do we approach the Living One? How can we possibly speak to God?
How do we bridge the gulf between our poor humanity and his Divinity – from our unlimited selfishness to his Infinite Goodness? read more…
