Here’s the link to the video of my message from last Sunday at Grace Life Fellowship, in Baton Rouge, LA. “Witness Protection & You.” It’s about 40 minutes.

However, when a person gets the idea that God’s opinion can be known and that it is both excellent and accurate, his wrestling with this world diminishes because he no longer needs it to find himself. He is discovered. What a good thing that is. Rest and love and ease around other people are finally found because you get what you’ve been looking for from God: “You’re okay! You’re great, as a matter of fact. I’ve made you that way.” God gives you that.
So if you’ve got some inner wrestling going on today—you know the turmoil that happens inside? “Who am I? What am I doing with my life?” Then consider where you’re looking: in the mirrors of this world and what those give you, or at Jesus, who gives you . . . well, He gives you you.
Colossians 3:2-3 (The Message) “Don’t shuffle along, eyes to the ground, absorbed with the things right in front of you. Look up, and…see things from his perspective. Your old life is dead. Your new life, which is your real life—even though invisible to spectators—is with Christ in God.”
That has to be good! So look there. You’ll like what you find because it’s the true you. And because it’s real . . . and that’s really good.

The good people at Surrendered Image have just published my article/video about love. I think it will help you, particularly on this weekend when we celebrate love—the passion, power and purpose of love.

Think about how capable God is by nature, which means without effort. He needs no outside stimulus or restraint in order to be Himself. Think about where God is right now and how connected you are with Him, and do not accept a law and commandment needing, discounted and distorted life. Not only will you be camouflaging Him from yourself and the wonder of that—God is in me!—but you will be short-circuiting your new self—your true self, which, by nature, is like Him. And that means an unnecessary frustration. A twist. A perversion. You don’t need that, right?
The life and power and grace of God do not come if you obey and get yourself right, according to the commandments. God shows up in you because He obeyed and got you right. And He is still getting you right from within—the two of you together, in harmony.
Look to Him. He is alive in you, and He doesn’t need any commandments.
