HIS LOVE IS REAL
In prayer recently, I heard the cry of this generation asking, “Is His love real?” Perhaps you are one of them asking. There is such good news. Yes, His love is real. We find the answer right here in scripture.
“But God proves His own love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us!” Romans 5:8 (HCSB)
Here you’ll find encouragement, truth, and resources to help you begin your journey with Jesus, grow in your faith or go to the next step and be empowered by the Holy Spirit. It is a priviledge to walk alongside you.
Get started below. Glad you’re here.
“For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.”1 CORINTHIANS 1:18 (NIV)
This one moment could change your life. Open your heart. The Lord is near.
I believe it is no accident that you are reading this right now. By faith, I believe you are one who is “being saved.”
What you will read next is the power of God. The Good News. The Gospel. It is the true story that is about to change your life. And if you’ve heard it before, I pray it falls on fresh ears. To hear as if it were the first time.
FOR NEW & GROWING BELIEVERS
Jesus came with one mission. To accomplish the will of the Father. And he did exactly that. Now, we are the beneficiaries of his obedience. And through Christ, we are invited into a beautiful relationship with God the Father and wonderful Holy Spirit. Let’s go on a journey together to discover him.

ENCOURAGEMENT FOR YOUR WALK
PRAY. TALK TO JESUS. ASK FOR MORE.
The Bible says we have not because we ask not in James 4. If that’s the case, it sounds like an invitation to me. In Matthew, we see Jesus encouraging us to do just that.
“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.” Matthew 7:7-8 (NKJV)
Those are weighty promises. If that’s the case, what are we to ask for then?
Well, that depends. He did give us instructions when he taught us to pray the Lord’s prayer in Matthew 6 and Luke 11. And if that’s all we knew, that would be enough. “Your Kingdom come. Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” Matthew 6:10 (NKJV)
But the reality is, we can pray about anything. And one of the most beautiful things to pray for is to know him more.
Paul talks about this in Ephesians chapter 3 where he tells the church in Ephesus what he has been asking the Lord to do in their lives. He closes with the desire for the church in Ephesus to know the love of Christ, the love that “surpasses knowledge.” We can pray the same prayer for ourselves now.
“And to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.” Ephesians 3:19 (NIV 1984)
This is an experiential type of knowing. To know this love. You can feel the love of God! And the result will be that we will be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. That sounds rich.
The reality is, God can change a life in a matter of moments. God can change your life in a moment. And you can know this love that surpasses knowledge. That’s why it’s important to take a moment to pray and ask. He meets us in our time of need and is so generous in his love. Thank you, Lord!
So, whatever your need is, bring it to him today. His ear is so close. And his hand so open. Let’s open up our hearts and activate that childlike faith again. To believe our Father. To believe that he will do what he says he will do. And that he loves to show us his love! He will answer us.
“Call to Me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you do not know.” Jeremiah 33:3 (NKJV)
Pray with me:
God, I want to believe like a child again. Teach me how to pray. I lean into you and press my head against your chest and trust you for the days ahead. So, today I ask that you will allow me to know you deeper. I want to know this love that surpasses knowledge. I want to know you. You are love. Help me feel your presence all around me. Holy Spirit, make Jesus real to me. Thank you. I trust you. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God.
There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.
Hebrews 4:16 (NLT)
