Heaven will be filled with fragrance – the sweetness of Jesus filling every one of God’s saints.
Being born again into the family of God provides family privileges, protection and provision in God’s unfailing loving Presence.
Disobedience to God is in direct opposition to loving God, myself or my neighbour.
Do you love yourself? I think those words will make many Christians cringe. Many of us have thought that loving self was selfishness. We can have a wrong concept and be confused if we don’t understand what Jesus said (Luke 14:26) “and hate his own life also”. People that rally hate their lives often commit suicide. That thinking is not at all what Jesus is teaching. What is He saying? Jesus is telling me to hate a lie that would be very harmful to me. Notice that Jesus says “his own life”. If I choose by my own choice a life which caters to the dictates of my own will and appetites, a life that ignores God’s will, I am building a life of personal disaster. So, I can fully understand why Jesus told me to hate such a life. I used to think that self-denial (Matthew 16:24) was the opposite of loving myself, but now I see that the exact opposite of that thinking is true. Self-denial protects me from the destructive kind of life which Jesus told me to hate. His warning is vitally important.

God will make the final withdrawal from my lifespan bank to close my account.
To-day, as every day, I get up early in the morning, but before I get out of bed I spend time in conversation with the Lord. A couple of mornings ago, we were discussing lifespan and the thoughts I received gave birth to this meditation.
