Comments on comprehending Christ:
When we allow Christ to dwell in us we will be able to comprehend the magnitude of His Love for us.
You will finally understand the wonder of it all, know the "power that worketh in us", and realize the abundance of His blessings.
Pursue in knowing HIM, not just His story.
That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love, May be able to comprehend with all saints what is the breadth, and length, and depth, and height; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.
- Ephesians 3:17-21
Among those God created, loved, and redeemed are a number of people who rant against His Presence in public places. Whether in the form of a Book, a prayer, or a standard they want Him out! And in many ways they have succeeded.
Yet, once the dust of riot settles, or the chaos of explosions recede, or the blood from a shooting is cleared these same individuals point an accusing finger towards Heaven and rage against their Creator. They ask, "Why did He...? How could He...? Where is He...?"
The same place they accuse Him of abandoning is the exact location of which they demanded the banning of His presence.
With pain in His heart and love in His steps, He walked out in answer to their insistent demands.
When God is not allowed in our schools, When He is not welcome in the home, and especially when He's not invited in our hearts; chaos occurs, sin reigns, and evil triumphs.
Do we do the same in our hearts?
Does God receive the same treatment when we insist on doing our own thing, in our own way, on our own timing?
"It is a faithful saying: For if we be dead with him, we shall also live with him: If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us:"
- 2 Timothy 2:11-12

This blog is my chance to do that using my passion for writing. I pray that anything that is published on this website ministers and blesses others!
