We Have Life

"Whoever has the Son has life; 

whoever does not have God’s Son does not have life." 

"We know that the Son of God has come 
and given us understanding, 
so that we may know Him who is true. 
And we are in Him who is true." 1John 5

We have the Son, fully alive and fully committed 
to pouring His life into our own.   
We have Jesus, who came that we might truly understand 
the One who is always true.
And because we have Jesus, we have life.
Today I so want His life to flow through mine, 
and I pray that I don't hinder the expression of HIs.
He orchestrates our lives in ways 
that tell of His life, 
His goodness and His faithfulness.
My cry is that I can turn each experience 
of His life in me--His goodness--
into a gateway for others to know Him, see Him, 
touch Him and come home to Him.
I want my life to be a continual response to His goodness.
Nothing less than my life 
being an expression of His will ever be enough.
Jesus, help me do that which is utterly impossible
except for grace.
"You can never give another person 
that which was given handmade for you. 
But you can make them long for what you have." Chambers
Lord, would You help me make others 
long for the life I have in You.
