All around us we observe a pregnant creation. The Spirit of God is arousing us within and birthing destinies. These barren bodies of ours are yearning for full deliverance and the increasing manifestation of sons and daughters of His glory. That is why waiting does not diminish us any more than waiting diminishes a pregnant mother. We are enlarged in the waiting with joyful expectancy.

Jesus was free in the freedom of knowing Himself to be the beloved Son of God. He knew that He and the Father were one, and that he was sent into the world to proclaim God's love. He was free to speak and act in ways that pleased the Father with no regards to having to please man or the religious leaders around Him. We are also free, and empowered to respond to people's pains with the healing love of God.

When we have found our way home to the Father, it is the beginning of growing up to be like Him. As we mature we become like Him to others, as sons become fathers and daughters become mothers. We are God's eternal children desiring to be perfect as He is perfect; perfect in love, compassion, and grace. We become available and empowered to welcome home brothers and sisters, the way the Father welcomed us home.

Holy Spirit is the breath of God breathing in us. The Spirit of God is like our breath, yet more intimate to us than we are to ourselves. We might not often be aware of it, but without Him we cannot live a "spiritual life." He is the substance for miracles. His Spirit prays in us, and offers us the gifts of love, forgiveness, Kindness, peace, and joy. It is the Holy Spirit who gives us life that death cannot destroy.

The Kingdom of God brings freedom, authority, and influence to both male and female. Religion and society often oppose this and cause limitations and sufferings. Human efforts occasionally rise up against injustice, but removed from God they are neither effective nor sustainable. God honoring and mutually submitted relationships of love and freedom work. Love, freedom, and obedience to God are a winning combination.

Jesus was gentle with sinners, which is all of us, bringing us toward Him through His amazing love. He was however fierce with religious leaders and the self righteous. Many have become closet pharisees that do not approach with love. Have we forgotten our own wounds, and healing needed or received? May we continue to flee from the pharisee within, and become grace filled healers to those in need.

Hope and faith are fulfilled in death, but love remains. Love eternal comes from God and returns to God. We will lose everything that life gave us except love. The love with which we lived our lives is the life of God in us. It is the indestructible core of our being. This love not only remains but bears fruit for generations to come. Let your hearts not be troubled, Love has come to stay, as we embrace Him.
