Words and portions of scripture that used to leave me feeling “less than enough” or “shut down” now bring tears of joy…

For example, 

Righteousness: right-wise-ness or wise in what is right. In Greek, it is a relationship word and refers to two parties finding likeness in each other!

Repentance: is not about religious penance. The Greek suggests a radical mind-shift; it is to realize God’s amazing thoughts towards us!

God’s Righteous Judgement: is God declaring mankind innocent! It is the most consequential aspect of the cross!

Dis-Obedience: means to not be persuaded, to be without faith! He’s not talking about our faith, He’s talking about His Faith. Our faith is only relevant when connected to His! Disobedience is the fruit of simply not being convinced in His perfect love revealed through Jesus’ life, death and resurrection.

The best news is that all of us, believers or not, are beautifully included in His redemptive death, burial, and resurrection! And there’s not one thing we can add to, or take away from it!

Yes, we can disobey, we can live unpersuaded.

But nothing we do or believe can change who He is, how He feels about us, and what He has done for us. It is finished and nothing can separate us from His love. 

It’s just ours to discover!

Oh, it’s so easy…

Just live loved my friend!

Don’t let the Bible beat you up!

Love you
Lloyd

Does God Use Tragedy To Manipulate

God never instigates nor manipulates a tragedy to grow faith, that’s not what a good Father does. But it is what a controlling God would do.

Happy New Year From Jason Clark & A Family Story

What if God is Love and Love is measureless, infinite. And what if this measureless Love came to earth as a child, grew to be a man and lived in our finite world, a world controlled by measurements.

When is the last time you felt God’s absolute joy and laughter over your life? When was the last time you knew to your very bones that He was absolutely in love with you?
