Jesus is so in love with you

Jesus is so in love with you

Welcome back to my blog, I'm so glad you came back💓. It has been a wonderful journey since I started Faithspiration by Bibi, thank you so much for your messages and words of encouragement. I appreciate you.

Quick check, did you read your Bible this morning? Tell the truth, I won't judge. I have those mornings where I rush out of bed and say a 30-second prayer and off I go. We have all been there and its okay, there is so much room for a consistent fellowship and communion with God. We just have to ask God and yield to him when he wakes you up to pray and your flesh is so weak.

Well, I want to talk to you about love. Boy meets girl, they fall madly in love and can not stand being apart from each other. There are so many relationships that the boy is much more in love with the girl  (or the reverse) that he will spend his last kobo to be with her and this same energy is not reciprocated by the girl. This sounds like our relationship with Jesus. He gave his life on the cross, he became sin for us, he died to snatch us from eternal damnation, he died so God will not be angry with us, do you want me to continue? You know I can write a billion articles about what Jesus has done continually to show that he loves us but then how long will our pages be for the reciprocated love?

Under this dispensation of grace, God is no longer commanding you to love him. I mean it's just like telling your child "Sit down there until you love me". How effective will that be? Maybe the child will fake the love to get something from you but truly you know the love is not real. In the era of grace, we love God because he first loved us. The greatest show of his affection towards us is giving his only begotten son to die for our sins. I mean we have all seen the passion of Christ and we can only imagine the shame Jesus went through to reconcile us back to God. You know through Jesus, the love is now rock solid. This love is indestructible, unbreakable, unquenchable, reckless, unshakable, overwhelming, and never-ending.

Romans 8:38-39
38 And I am convinced that nothing can ever separate us from God’s love. Neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons,[b] neither our fears for today nor our worries about tomorrow—not even the powers of hell can separate us from God’s love. 39 No power in the sky above or in the earth below—indeed, nothing in all creation will ever be able to separate us from the love of God that is revealed in Christ Jesus our Lord.

With this kind of love, it is only ridiculous to reduce Christianity to a list of dos and donts. It is now a love relationship. Remember that boy I talked about earlier that does everything to prove his love for the girl? He will definitely move on to someone else but God will never ever move on. His love is constant. Why are you leaving him to do the loving? He is waiting for you to come into this love relationship. The honest truth is your Christian walk is only revitalised when you plunge deeper into that love relationship with Christ. The more you draw nearer the sweeter the love.

James 4:8a
Draw near to God and He will draw near to you...
I understand that many of us view God as this big man up there with a sledgehammer waiting for you to mess up so he can behead you. I know what we have known is try to do good and stay away from bad, that's all you need to be a good Christian. But I am writing to tell you today that the only way we can effectively obey God is through focusing solely on the love of Jesus and how we can respond to it. It won't be about having a bunch of rules and regulations that you don't understand but about pleasing the one whom you love and who loves you a 1 zillion times more.

We also have to come to a place of understanding that our obedience to God's words is a love language. It not only deepens the love, but it also strengthens it and adds honey to our spiritual journey. In this love relationship, a time will come where the law will be written in your heart where nobody will have to teach it to you (Hebrews 10:16). This time around, you without the pastor's "clamour" will naturally reveal the deeds of God. We all should strive to this place of spontaneous godliness. If you think about it, you will realise that obeying God is solely for our benefit. The only thing God needs from us is our worship! All the other things we obey is for our spiritual journey and to honour God.

John 14:21 (TLB)
The one who obeys me is the one who loves me; and because he loves me, my Father will love him; and I will too, and I will reveal myself to him
To be very clear, you can not improve on your Union with Christ. John Murray calls our union "the central truth of the whole doctrine of salvation". However, what you can improve on is your communion with Christ. Chasing after him, wanting more of him, longing for him, needing him. Think of it this way, you are married to Jesus already all you crave is to know your lover more.

Communing with God is creating a habit of studying his word daily (use bible plans and devotionals, pick a bible book to study per month), meditate on his word (meditating is simply dwelling on the words, repeating it to yourself) then talk to him (pray). The Bible chapters/verses you read and meditate upon will help inform your prayers. It is totally okay to ask the Holy Spirit to help you read the Bible, meditate and pray. All you need to do is yield! 

This combination in a sequential manner helps us to develop a deeper relationship with God. It is not for us to show off our scholarly/bible study abilities. Do not let what is meant to help you fall madly in love with Jesus and help others fall in love with him become a source of pride.

1 Corinthians 8:1b (TLB) 
But although being a “know-it-all” makes us feel important, what is really needed to build the church is love
God is waiting for you to draw close to him, what are you waiting for?

Do’s and Don’ts of a spiritual fast

Do’s and Don’ts of a spiritual fast  By Bibi Babatunde-Ikotun Hello, welcome to my blog. If you clicked on this link it’s either you’re fasting already or are planning to fast. The good thing is you’re planning to have an effective fast by seeking all the information you can get on this. I won’t waste much of your time and I’ll get into it. Don’ts of fasting -  Have a Transactional mindset : A long time ago I thought fasting was about doing something so God will bless you. This led to a string of disappointment because I never got what I wanted from him. After all, I deprived myself for God but He didn’t do his part. We must first understand that fasting is not to move God, it’s to help us align with the move he’s made. The bible says in Ephesians 1.3 (NKJV) Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ. God is always on our side, we need not deal with him on a transaction basis. We fast to tra

What does it mean to be complete in Christ?

What does it mean to be complete in Christ? When you look at yourself, what do you see? Do you see someone who is imperfect and lacking in many areas? Do you sometimes find yourself thinking these thoughts? God is angry with me. I’m too dirty and damaged for Him to accept me. Why would God want to be with me when I’m a hot mess. Let me give you a secret, it doesn't matter how you feel or what you think. All that matters is what God has said in His word. His word says you are Complete in Christ! You are whole! Nothing missing, nothing lost, nothing broken! This is not by your deeds or something you are on your own. This is because you're in Christ!  Are you in Christ? Colossians 2:9-10 (NKJV) For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead [a]bodily; 10 and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all [b]principality and power. Colossians 2:9-10 (TPT) For he is the complete fullness of deity living in human form. 10 And our own completeness is now found in him . We are co

Smart money woman; personal finance tips

Smart money woman; personal finance tips The Smart Money woman series was really interesting, you should check it out on Netflix . After watching it, I got inspired to share these 5 personal finance tips. When it comes to money many people are going with the flow. But it requires intentionality, we must steward everything God has blessed us with.  I covered giving cheerfully but prudently, retirement funds, and many more.  I don't know all things personal finance but I believe that I am a smart money woman. I hope this helps you in your journey to financial freedom.  Proverbs 13.22a A good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children,  With love, Bibi
