Do we really believe that God enjoys us? If we cannot answer “yes” confidently to this question we will always live short of what He intended. I will step out and say that if we fully believed God enjoyed us we would cut “passionless Christianity” in half , at least. I know, that’s a pretty huge statement.
I came across this story a few days ago regarding our identity.
“The thief on the cross who begged for forgiveness in the last moments of his life must have been shocked when he stepped over the line into paradise after Jesus told him he would (Luke 23:43). I imagine this former thief walking the streets of gold, shocked at the robe he was given and the greetings he received from the angels. When he asked what it was all about, one of the angels told him, “You don’t understand—you’re a king here.” The thief looked at the angel, stunned. “A king?” he asked. “If I had known I was a king, I would have never lived as a thief!” 7 Longings of the Human Heart – Mike Bickle
Jesus is the perfect model of a One Pursuit life. The depth of relationship with His Father in heaven and the glory of His power on earth is unmatched. His life demonstrates the capacity of living in relationship and rulership. He is the supreme model of how to be anointed with power through an unyielding devotion to God.
