Becoming Whole


Love is the only path to joy.

(Listen to my song “Shall We Sing” by clicking HERE)


John 15:10-11

“If you keep my commandments, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and remain in his love. I have told you this so that my joy might be in you and your joy might be complete.”


We know that God’s love is unconditional…so just because we slip up on keeping the commandments doesn’t mean that God withholds that love.

But it does mean that we would move away from the flow of God’s love.

It would be like singing in a great chorus but purposely singing out of tune. When we are keeping the commandments…we are in the flow of God’s love and are singing a beautiful harmony in the great chorus.

When we remain in God’s love…our hearts are transformed and we will naturally want to spread that love to others.

It would be like participating in a circle of giving and receiving love…the very life of the Trinity.

Contemplate for a moment how God loves you unconditionally.

Allow that to settle into your heart.

Feel the joy that Jesus wants you to experience…and then share it with someone else.
