Can a love affair with Christ ever be Half-Full?

Thinking about love is like Shadowboxing, a shady practice unless you’re a boxer who spars with restless Spirits. A while back in my bible study each member drew what was on their mind, I sketched a Heart. A Corazon (heart) that was being fed by white-capped rapids of Salt and Fresh water. Atop was a Waterfall-of-Love flowing down through half my heart into a pool of Sparkling-Water churning below; but the other half remained empty and Vulnerable.

Can a love affair with Christ ever be Half-Full? This world can fool us into feeling half loved. It’s human to feel wanted; a partner in the Flesh, and of Flesh can help complete one’s Dreams. Being Lavished with Faith and Lonely don’t seem to mix. Being single didn’t make much sense until I able to break down and cry; then offer the subject matter to Christ. Matters of the Heart are a bit too grand for a one night stand.

“So don’t let anyone condemn you for what you eat or drink, or for not celebrating certain holy days or new-moon celebrations or Sabbaths. For these rules were only shadows of the real thing, Christ Himself. Don’t let anyone condemn you by insisting on self-denial. And don’t let anyone insist you must worship angels, even though they say they have had visions about this. These people claim to be humble, but their sinful minds have made them proud.

But they are not connected to Christ, the head of the Body. For we are joined together in His Body by His strong sinews, and we grow only as we get our nourishment and strength from God.” (Colossians 2:16-19 NLT)

By what Power or what Name did you Evangelize?

Been blocked from being Social, no worries, God’s Word has been known to wrinkle some Feathers. There are many cultures with various customs and being too friendly can cause suspicion; please except my apologies on behalf of this ministry for sending “Friend” requests on Facebook and “Follows” on Twitter. Perhaps there’s a better way to minister abroad, beyond territorial boundaries, and in real time.

Heavenly Father, send a new Platform to spring forth Wisdom in real time; abolish broad and complex rules of religious engagement through the Holy Spirit. Provide resources to go forth in person meeting and greeting people in search of salvation. Give us the means to lift up Hearts, inspire Hope, and ignite your Passion worldwide. So that when Jesus arrives on a cloud taking names and searching souls we are Crowned faithful ministers of God’s Word.
“They had Peter and John brought before them and began to question them: “By what power or what name did you do this?” Then Peter filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them: “Rulers and elders of the people! If we are being called to account today for an act of kindness shown to a cripple, and are asked how he was healed, then know this you and all the people of Israel:
It is by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified but whom God raised from the dead, that this man stands before you healed. He is, “The Stone you builders rejected, which has become the Capstone.” Salvation is not found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.” (Acts 4:7-12 NLT)

Minor setbacks mirror those days when Christ first Proclaimed the Gospel. Major setbacks mirror Satan’s den of world rule, and Apocalyptic setbacks are a time to rejoice in the Name of Jesus of Nazareth who, according to Scripture, predicted major events would take place.
