God Invades Your Heart!

I pray that God will be kind to you and will let you live in perfect peace! May you keep learning more and more about God and our Lord Jesus.  We have everything we need to live a life that pleases God. It was all given to us by God's own power, when we learned that he had invited us to share in his wonderful goodness.  God made great and marvelous promises, so that his nature would become part of us. Then we could escape our evil desires and the corrupt influences of this world.

2 Peter 1: 2 - 4

How do we escape our own evil desires and the corrupt influences of this world?  Dedication, determination and self control may hold sin back for a while, but the only thing that truly works is when the nature of God becomes part of us! 

When your heart is transformed into the image of Jesus Christ, you will find that your life is very different.  You will know it!  Those who are the closest to you will see it for sure.  And even those people who you meet casually will sense that there is something about your life that is not like everyone else.  

Evangelism happens when you answer the question: “Why are you the way you are?”

When the Nature of God invades your heart you don’t have to try to be like Jesus, you ARE like Jesus!  The world will hate you, even as it hated the Lord.  And the lost will be drawn to the hope they see in how you live your life.

God enables you to live a life that pleases Him as you “share in His wonderful goodness.”  When you give your heart to Jesus, you put yourself on His “Potter’s Wheel” where He will shape you into the person He created you to be!  

“Lord Jesus, may the Nature of God invade my heart today, and may He shape me into a vessel that looks just like You!  Praise Your Holy Name now and forever.  Amen.”
