For this reason also, God highly exalted Him, and bestowed on Him the name which is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee will bow, of those who are in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and that every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
Hey! I hope what you find here will encourage you to “seek God with your whole heart!” (Jer 29:13) and watch as He does “far more than we could ever ask or think!” (Eph. 3:20) I’d like to point out that God has done way more for me than I could ever express. I’d also like to point out, that I didn’t and don’t deserve the relationship I have with Him (or anything else for that matter). It is only because of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, that God saved me from my sin and my shame.
The Word of God says that there will be a time where people confuse gain with godliness. (1 Tim 6:5) I used to be one of those people. Because of the times we live in and my wife and I currently living in the Bay Area, I would also like to emphasize this warning. It saved me from a lot of deception and allowed me to enter an honest relationship with God where I could ask Him to be everything.
If you ever get in our car you will see a phrase on the dashboard “mada mada dane” which means, “I still have a long way to go.” This is so true in my life! But I am overjoyed that no matter how far I have to go, God is with me.
If you find yourself in a place where you are uncertain of God’s love for you (John 3:16-17), or if there is a God at all. Don’t worry, you can change that today. At one point in my life, I was in that place too. There was and is literally no hope for me. Except for Jesus.
Today, I point directly to Christ with a heart full of confidence in Him. He has saved me and preserved me each day. My life changed when I desperately asked God to save me and to show me what He meant when He said that I could know Him. I asked, even though I knew I deserved hell.
I know He will meet you if you sincerely cry for Him to save you. Because He saved me and He continues to save me…
“Mada Mada Dane”
We still have a long way to go…
I pray that all those who call themselves sons of God (Huios means “sons of God”) be found faithfully pointing to Jesus, the Author and Perfecter of our faith. (Heb 12:2)
Jesus said to her, “Did I not say to you that if you believe, you will see the glory of God?”
