“If We’re Sitting in Heavenly Places Why Doesn’t It Feel Like It?”
There are two natures at war within me: the carnal nature, and the spiritual nature (Rom. 7). I was born with my carnal nature, but God gave me a spiritual nature when I accepted Jesus Christ as my Saviour.
One of the ways in which both of these natures within me reveal themselves is through my feelings. My new spiritual nature that comes from God causes me to have feelings of joy and peace and love. But my carnal nature brings me feelings of unworthiness and fear.
These two natures will be at war within me until the day that I draw my final breath this side of eternity. The question is: which feelings will I listen to? Which feelings will I accept as a reflection of my reality?

I love the first two chapters of Paul’s epistle to the Ephesians. It’s such a wonderful reminder of our perfect acceptance by God, They tells us about how God sees us as, even while we often struggle on this earth. Chapter 2:4–7 says that, …because of his great love for us, God, who is rich […]
People are like mirrors. We look at them and think that we see ourselves in what we see reflected back. If we see things like forgiveness and love, then we believe ourselves to be worthy of forgiveness and love. If, on the other hand, we see unforgiveness and rejection, then we believe ourselves to be […]
There was a time when the twelve disciples were completely exhausted. They had just returned from preaching in the villages and towns of Galilee, and they were trying to tell Jesus what they had experienced, but there were so many people that Jesus and the Twelve didn’t even have a chance to eat. And so […]
The Bible doesn’t actually say that “money is the root of all evil,” although many people think it does. What the Bible actually says is the “the love of money is the root of all… evil” (1 Tim 6:10). And it is the root of all evil not just in society in general, but all […]
I want to talk to you about pain; not the kind that you can deal with by taking a tablet. I’m not talking about physical pain. I want to talk to you about the pain of the heart. It’s the kind of pain that sometimes you don’t even realise is there until one day you […]
I used to say, before I knew better, that I would be happy if I just made it into heaven as the pearly gates of the New Jerusalem were closing, and if were only just to squeeze through. But now I know that was a terrible thing to say! It reflects very poorly on our […]
It’s natural for us to want Jesus to just appear and heal our wounds and hurts instantaneously. But often, that’s not how Jesus works. When Jesus did mighty works and miracles while on earth, his healings were usually immediate and dramatic. But there is one miracle which he did that was different, and through it, […]
There are many things that are odd about the resurrection of Jesus, but then again there were many things that are odd about his ministry and his death. That’s because Jesus never seemed to do things the way other people expected him to. If I had been Jesus on that Sunday morning, I would have […]
How does Jesus see you when you’re down? You know how you see yourself: as alone, worthless, unloved and unlovable, and basically as a failure. But the important thing is not how you see yourself, but how Jesus sees you. Because if you can allow how Jesus sees you to become your reality, then you […]
When Jesus got up from his last supper with his disciples, he said to them, “Come on, let’s go” (John 14:31, paraphrased.) As he starts the walk to Gethsemane, he knows his time is short, and he focuses his teaching on what is most important to help sustain them through the trials to come. This […]
