The Essence – Tract

What are the top three things that matter most to you?  Are these receiving the care, emphasis and time you want to give them? Have you experienced the unsettling feeling that comes when you don’t?  Beyond meeting physical needs, what’s your goal and vision for life?  Perhaps you’d like to be on a path of deeper meaning and significance but just can’t seem to find it or even imagine how you’d find the time to live it even if you did?

During times of crises our perspective of what’s most important tends to crystallize and stare us in the face. Very few people, on their deathbed, wish they’d spent more time at the office.  How then can we live within the realm of the most important, here and now?

What if, in resolution to this question, the most renowned experts in the fields of business, psychology, and time management offered their services to you – pro bono.  Better yet, what if you could receive personalized counsel from God Himself?  What if He told you, “Call to Me and I will answer you and show you great and powerful things you do not know.” (Jer.33:3)

Beyond that, what if God’s Spirit would come and live within you – filling the spiritual lack you feel and transforming you in such a way that you become “a partaker of the Divine Nature” (II Ptr.1:4)a partaker of the very peace, love and completeness which is God’s essence – thus enabling you to channel these virtues to others and impact their lives in a very fundamental way; all the while God’s Spirit would be your personal “Counselor” (Isa.9:6) – envisioning and empowering you to walk the path of highest meaning and purpose while at the same time showing you how to practically live it through the various professional, social and personal roles you have in life.  “I will put My Spirit within you and you will come to life.” (Ezek.37:14) “The Holy Spirit … will teach you all things.” (Jn.14:25)

What if you’d realize that God “took the form of a man and lived among us” (Jn.1:14) in order to communicate with and offer to you a gift called ‘Eternal Life’.  “And this is Eternal Life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sent.” (Jn.17:3)

Then you understood that “by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourself, it is the gift of God – not of works” (Ep.2:8-9) and realized that “the gift (something that can not be bought or earned) of “Eternal Life through Jesus” (Rom.6:23) requires only one simple action in order to receive it:  Ask and you will receive …  for the Heavenly Father gives the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him.” (Lk.11:9,13)

So you end up ‘asking’ by praying a simple prayer like this:

“Jesus, I realize my best intentions and efforts fall short in comparison with Your Eternal Truth.  Please cleanse and fill me with Your Spirit of Love and give me the gift of Eternal Life – knowing you, knowing God.  Please be my Counselor throughout life’s journey, as you alone know the path of greatest significance and meaning.  Amen.”

… and you begin to discover the presence of One Who will always remain with you…
