Absolute Fullness

I sent this to my daughter this morning:

My Beloved Daughter,

As I was praying this morning, The Holy Spirit directed me to Philippians chapter 3 in the Passion Translation:


Read this and replace Paul with me and you will see where I am at today.  All of my past accomplishments are but a heap of dung in comparison to the joy of knowing My Lord Jesus Christ and being led by The Holy Spirit in all areas.

Your Loving Dad 

Paul wrote by The Holy Spirit in Philippians chapter 3:

9 My passion is to be consumed with Him (Jesus Christ) and not clinging to my own “righteousness” based in keeping the written Law. My “righteousness” will be His, based on the faithfulness of Jesus Christ—the very righteousness that comes from GOD. 10 And I continually long to know the wonders of Jesus more fully and to experience the overflowing power of His resurrection working in me. I will be one with Him in his sufferings and I will be one with Him in His death. 11 Only then will I be able to experience complete oneness with Him in His resurrection from the realm of death.

12 I admit that I haven’t yet acquired the absolute fullness that I’m pursuing, but I run with passion into His abundance so that I may reach the purpose that Jesus Christ has called me to fulfill and wants me to discover. 13 I don’t depend on my own strength to accomplish this; however I do have one compelling focus: I forget all of the past as I fasten my heart to the future instead. 14 I run straight for the Divine invitation of reaching the Heavenly goal and gaining the victory-prize through the anointing of Jesus. 15 So let all who are fully mature have this same passion, and if anyone is not yet gripped by these desires, GOD will reveal it to them. 16 And let us all advance together to reach this victory-prize, following one path (known as The Way) with one passion.

Let this same passion I am walking in be embraced by you as well.  What else matters?  The anointing of Jesus Christ, that power and authority giving to Him by FATHER, is what each of us needs to minister life and healing to those around us.

I am in daily pursuit of the “absolute fullness” of walking in such anointing, not for my own glory, but to express the Agape Love of Jesus Christ to this dying world.  Oh how I hope those who read the words will pursue that same fullness.

I know about weariness and frustration for I have suffered just like many of you.  I know what it means to be in lack as well as be in abundance.  I know what it means to have loved ones at odds with the family.  I know what it means to have bosses who were persistent manipulators and thrived on being in control of others.  I know what it means to have friends who have abandoned our relationship.  However, Jesus Christ has delivered me out of all those situations.

This is the day that THE LORD has made, rejoice and be glad in it.  We are not defined by the past for we are defined by FATHER’S Divine Intent so let us pursue HIS Intent with unyielding passion today!
