Your love story with Jesus might be a bit like mine.
I lived for over thirty years not knowing I became a brand-new person when I accepted Him.
And because of not knowing who I was in Christ, I lived just like I wasn’t in Him.
In 1997, while going through some heartbreaking circumstances, I began seeking Jesus like never before and studying His Word to know Him better.
As a result of getting my mind renewed with truth, I began facilitating Bible studies and helping others learn.
But for some unexplained reason, I wasn’t experiencing much joy in my relationship with Christ.
Truth be told, I was on the verge of burnout.
I was doing all the things that a “good” Christian was supposed to be doing: attending church regularly, Bible study, prayer, teaching, mentoring others, and fasting.
But all of those things put together still didn’t feel like enough.
Enough to deserve intimacy with Jesus.
My problem was simple: I just didn’t “get” grace.
I didn’t understand that He would never love me more or less, regardless of what I did or didn’t do for Him.
And that nothing I did or didn’t do could change who I eternally am in Him.
For the last fifteen years, I have been on a wonder-filled journey with Jesus, learning to rest in His finished work and enjoy sweet intimacy with Him.
This refreshing rest and enjoyment has come through understanding that I am already pure, already righteous, and already holy through my eternal spiritual union with Him.
And now my passion is to help other Christians experience the same refreshing rest and enjoyment in Him through this blog and my books.
