Introducing Perfect Mess
1 John 1:7
But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin. (ESV)

Do we SEE God every day in our lives? We must if we are truly following Him.
It's easy to submit to a man-made, self conjured up idea of who Jesus is based on our perceptions of who we want Him to be, but there is NO power in that.
But as we identity with His birth inside of us, a REAL birth, connected to the REAL God through the REAL death of Jesus, we SEE Him in us, Christ in us, the hope of GLORY!
And each day, no matter how hard or mundane becomes significant and weighty because we are surrendered to the God of our days, the One Who is working ALL out for good. He alone SEES and KNOWS, and as we recognize His sovereignty over us, we begin to SEE and experience the evidence of His Kingdom ruling in us. What a privilege it is to be a child of God!

New series begins tomorrow morning in Perfect Mess called Jesus Rules.
So often we follow a set a rules instead of simply allowing Jesus to rule in us.
We begin at 9:15 in room 103 at 1st Baptist Huffman. ... See MoreSee Less
We are created through Christ, and for Christ. Once this truly sinks in, all else falls into place.
Like an accident clogging the highway, blocking all the traffic from flowing through, our self centered thinking leaves us in a constant state of bumping against one another, unable to move forward into God's destiny for us. Our self awareness at the wheel always looking out for mortal over the eternal.
Only in Him are we properly held together, are we rightfully aligned and able to move freely about in God's glorious plans for us, without crashing and bumping into ours or anyone else's ego. Oh, how the world groans to experience the unclogged highways of human hearts released fully to run through the highways of God's Grace!

Right now, Jesus is setting your place at His table in heaven, and the Holy Spirit is preparing you to be ready to take your seat there.
THAT is the reality in the life of every child of God. It's how we can KNOW that, no matter what, ALL things work together for good.

Some view the Christian life as one being one where perfect people live in perfect bubbles of safety and security.
It is, infact, the exact opposite. A true Christian is one who is utterly aware of their imperfection, and their need for Christ. And because of this awareness, they are moving against the current of the entire world, facing intense opposition from every side, yet trusting and abiding in God's strength and sovereignty as they forge forward. They are very aware that their standing with Christ places them as targets in this world, yet their aim lies above this world, in the Father's heart.

It's so easy to hear God's words and not respond to them.
Or, to respond to our own interpretation of them, instead of the simplicity of what He really said.
The hardest thing is to simply hear God, and then simply obey Him.
It takes us a very long time to kick ourselves out of the conversation, maybe even a lifetime.
O Jesus, grant us the ability to become simple enough to simply obey You. Amen

Child, there are some issues in your life that must be worked out of you before I can fully release you for the work of My hands.
You have NOT fullly released your nature to Me. You have come so far, but there is still so much farther to go.
You have Let Me in, but not offered Me a clean place to stay. You are beginning to know My grace, but you fail to understand that the same grace that has cleaned your heart and mind also desires to clean your habits and all your small, still fleshly compromises.
You compromise how my children see Me when you fail to let Me out all the way.
Let Me have My full way with you and SEE that there is SO much more of Me to discover once you stop compromising with you.

"Jesus did not commit Himself to them...for He knew what was in man." John 2:24-25
When we place our hope in flesh, there will always be lack, leaving us with a nagging sense of disappointment. Yet, when we place our hope in Christ, it is utterly impossible to be disappointed. Jesus does not disappoint, even when life, people, and circumstances do.
As we place all our hopes in Him, we will find our lives becoming a journey from grace to grace, one of lived headed in a direction above this world, no longer entangled in it's disappointments and disillusionments.
One of our greatest joys becomes experiencing the reality of Jesus in us, all because we have made room for Him to be there, instead of crowding Him out with all our false expectations of men.

There are those who speak of the authority of God. And there are those who speak IN the authority of God. What a huge chasm there lies between the two.
A person who has only read about, watched movies about, and perhaps come up with millions of ideas about parenthood can not explain the complexity and wonder it is to be entrusted by God with another's life and soul.
Only one who has experienced the weight of such has the authority to speak of such.
And so it is with knowing God. We don't speak about Him, as if He is a Being we can explain. But as children who are authorized in understanding all the ways He has explained us, and even reaches down to explain Himself to us.
What a wonder it is to belong to God, and to be given authority by Jesus to try and use something as small as words to explain One SO Big, GLORY is the only word to describe Him.
