Their hearts are for me, all who live in my purpose and my plans. Those who reach out to experience my love will be blessed by me. Those who desire for more will be filled by me. Continue to press in and ask for more. It is my pleasure to fill you forevermore. Your story is my story as you revel in my glory. Your time becomes my time as you walk on this earth together in unison with me. We are one and the same, you and I, and together we will walk into eternity. Let my Spirit guide you and lead you to do the next thing. I will show you the way to go and what you must do. It’s easier when you walk hand-in-hand with me.
Each day I will teach you what to do and what to say. You don’t have to strive in your relationship with me. Just take one step at a time in faith with me. By faith you have accepted me and by faith we will walk and talk together in perfect harmony. Like the movement of dance, we will flow together beautifully moving from place to place. I will fill you with my power and cover you by my grace. Stay in sync with me by listening with your heart. I will guide you right from the start.
Live, breathe, and laugh with me; free to be yourself with me. I do not put constraints on thee, only ask that you dwell with me. Dwell in my presence and do not depart from me. This will help you stay in sync with me. I am for you, never against you, so seek me out with all your heart and I will be with you.
Dwelling with me requires your time and presence of mind. It’s not a come and go and see you later mentality. This is a flowing together continuously dance of life routine. Don’t be in a big hurry to race to the finish, but instead, enjoy the ride and stay by my side and you will live victoriously.
Striving leads to discouragement and that is not what I want for you. You put too much pressure on yourself to be what everyone wants you to be, but dwell instead with me and I will prepare you for eternity. My conditions are simply that you follow my lead and let me help you be who you were created to be.
1 John 2:27 The Passion Translation
27 But the wonderful anointing you have received from God[a] is so much greater than their deception and now lives in you. There’s no need for anyone to keep teaching you.[b] His anointing teaches you all that you need to know, for it will lead you into truth, not a counterfeit. So just as the anointing has taught you, remain in him. [c]
- 2:27 Although absent in the Greek, the words “from God” are found in the Aramaic manuscripts. It is clear from the context that the “anointing” is the Holy Spirit poured into us, bringing life, illumination, wisdom, fruit, and power from the indwelling life of Christ.
- 2:27 Or “There is no need for anyone to keep teaching you his opinions [deceptions].” John is not telling them not to continue to be taught the Word of God, for God has placed teachers in the church to instruct us and equip us and bring us into the fullness of Christ (1 Cor. 12:28; Eph. 4:11; Heb. 13:7, 17). John’s warning concerns those who lead us astray by the false doctrines of men. The bride of Christ will always need Holy Spirit-filled teachers who illuminate us in the ways of Christ.
- 2:27 The Greek can be translated “remain in it” (the anointing).
