“Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much…”
(Luke 16:10)

I have spoken to you of earthly things and you do not believe; how then will you believe if I speak of heavenly things?”
(John 3:12)

It seems the Lord was showing me that these verses can refer to how we manage and steward and understand TIME. He gives us TIME in this temporal world and watches to see how we will use it. And if we do well (according to His idea of “well”), then He is ready to entrust us with heavenly, eternal things!

Sometimes, when we experience God’s tangible Presence, Eternity invades our temporal reality and TIME seems to disappear, as it is overwhelmed and displaced by His eternal, infinite Glory. And as we experience Him like this, everything in our lives begins to be transformed. But if we want to experience this infusion, we need to approach and esteem temporal TIME rightly — by spending a lot of it on Him, being willing to lavish Him with one of the few types of CURRENCY that really impresses Him — our TIME.

“And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God,
with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption.”

(Ephesians 4:30)

To avoid sin only because of its self-destructive
consequences is to create a me-centered Gospel.
The main reason we should not sin
is because it grieves the heart of God.

And a wonderful way to celebrate Valentine’s Day
would be to walk in the Grace He has given us (1 Corinthians 10:13)
and resist temptation because we love Jesus so much!

Are your eyes open for everyday opportunities to bless and help people?
Sometimes, all you have to do is slow down and look around…

“Forsaking all other lovers, so long as you both shall live…”

A lot of people equate HOLINESS with purity. And I think purity is marvelous and necessary — but it seems to me that purity, as wonderful as it is, is merely a beautiful symptom of what true holiness really is: radical, exclusive PASSION for Jesus.

I know that there are times when we just have to be militant and war against our fleshly appetites and not let them win, because we know it is the right thing to do. But the BEST times are when we are so in love with Him that other “lovers” just aren’t an option.
