1 John 1:6-7 “Certified Purified”
“If we claim to have fellowship with Him yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live by the truth. But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, His Son, purifies us from all sin.”
When we find the “sweet spot” in our life, work becomes fun and we have a passion for life because we are doing what we love. It energizes us!! That positive energy builds a positive momentum. It covers our old “darkness” and past sins. When we pursue what we love, and it is congruent with what glorifies God, Jesus literally purifies us. He eliminates all the smelly, rotting, grotesque stuff from our lives and makes us pure. The more you find what makes you happy and engaged in your life, the more positive blessings flow to you because God blesses those who focus on His truth, His way and His Word!
Will you still have foibles? Will you still mess up sometimes? Duh! Of course you will!! But that’s why God provided Jesus’ sacrifice, because He knew we couldn’t be perfect on our own. The good news is the more you focus on your “sweet spot,” doing things that matter and give your life purpose, the more the layers of good and productive service cover up and eliminate any interest in the old sinful BS we thought was “cool.” Sin is not cool; it’s HELL! Don’t be fooled by the dark side. Focus on your best and most productive self today.
Be nice! Do good! Work hard to do what you love! Glorify God with your actions! That’s a recipe for hangin’ in the light and having a life of happiness, fulfillment and feeling the exhilaration of a life being focused on the right things!

“These devotions were written to my four children, Christian, Mike, Allison and Alex. By the kids allowing these to be shared publicly, our hope is that the devotions will make a positive and eternal difference in the lives of other young people as they mature. Enjoy. Rick Isaacson”
