Verse of the day
So they ate and were well filled, for He gave them their own desire.
God wants us to be full of Him. So full that we are almost bursting at the seams with His love, joy, peace, healing, faith. It’s His desire that we His children come to a place of maturity where we are so full and overflowing with nothing but Jesus.
Being full of Jesus requires being commensurately emptied of self. You can’t be both full of Jesus and yourself. One must give way for the other. In being filled with Him, you lose your dreams, your ambition, your life and take on God’s desires and purposes for you.
Being filled with the fullness of Christ is not a product of the number of years spent in His faith. It is rather a product of how much of Him you have eaten for He is the living bread, and the cup that won’t run dry.
How well do I discipline myself to meditate on Him? How much of His prayers (and not mine) do I pray? Do I spend quality time with Him? These are questions you must ask yourself.

You can’t remain a child forever. Father’s desire rather is that you grow to become just like Jesus. Only then can you say that your salvation is complete.
The goal of the Christian faith is not to make heaven. Christ’s sacrifice qualifies His true followers for heaven already. But while we live, the chief aim of our faith is Christlikeness. This must define our greatest satisfaction.
Christ is the most beautiful being the world has ever known. The perfect One. And when the scriptures read that we press on to perfection, they simply ask that we exercise ourselves to be just like Jesus.
This is not a journey to be embarked on alone. In fact, it is principally Father’s responsibility to make us just like Him, which works perfectly when we possess the desire and readiness to be made just like Him.
The world needs people who are full and overflowing with Jesus. People who can shine their light, dispel darkness and bring healing to individuals, families, groups, cities, and nations. The world needs you.

Jesus, I am being made like You. My eyes are on You, focused, constantly feeding until I am emptied of self and made full of You.
