What's At The Core?


Are you a lover of Jesus? If so, or if you would like to learn more about Jesus, you will like this. Jesus is savior of all who set their heart to trust in him.

I got interested in seeking deeper into divine truth when I heard a strange teaching from a prophet about an onion. He talked about how God has to peel off layers of our inner soul all the way to the core, like one would peel an onion. I began to do some deep thinking on that. I wanted to be saved all the way to the core because I had lots of dark stuff from my early raising that hindered my walk. I wanted to get my heart and soul right with God.

Many know that all we are. personality and emotions, comes from the core of our inner man and the values it lives by. Core values make up how we think and react to life. What hides in the core of our being is the foundation of our emotions and personality. Life has made us who we are. And we are to learn that our life foundations are so important.

The word reveals to us that God is a discoverer of foundations. God turns mountains over to the root. That means that he gets to the core of things. He gets to know our heart and soul all the way to the core. He loves us just because he is so good and we are seekers but God does test hearts. God hates every false way and all that's impure has to be uncovered and uprooted. That's because the old wounds of our early childhood will always cause dysfunction. Dysfunction that will keep us from his best. So as we submit to his process he does a deep work. He loves us as a father, and being the only perfect father, He knows what hinders and hurts us. And only he knows how to fix it.

We can dig in to the new depth that can make us all new. As layer after layer is purged we will be healed, renewed and positioned where we belong.

I know that God loves me and he loves you. In his loving care we become fruitful and productive for his glory.

Galatians 5:22-23

But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.

The Lamb of God takes away the sin of the word, all who will receive him. That's the good news of the gospel!

Once we get set free we love to tell others our story. Have you heard the old gospel hymn "Blessed Assurance"? It tells the story so well. "Perfect submission, all is at rest. I, in my savior, am happy and blessed"

In perfect submission Holy Spirit does his purifying wonders in the deeps.

I hope this word reaches deep into hearts and a victorious holy life of blessing is the result. May we never neglect such great salvation!
