Well, I just returned from a conference in Jax, Florida. The conference was on The Living of a Believer Who Enjoys the Lord in the Body of Christ for the Fulfillment of God's Eternal Purpose. Wow, what a title. How to even explain all that was contained in these messages is beyond my ability. For now, I am going to share where I am in reviewing what I heard and learned.
I heard that God has a purpose. There is a reason we were born/created. He wants us, a group of individuals who form the body of Christ to enjoy Him. He created us with a need for pleasure. God Himself has a need for pleasure. His pleasure is to dispense Himself into us. When we allow Christ to be dispensed into us and for His life to spread through us, we are pleasing to Him. When I turn to the Lord and call on His name, I open to His dispensing and I can enjoy Him. The first phrase I am musing on is this: the secret to the Christian life is how much we enjoy God.
