“And to know the love of Christ, which passes knowledge, that you might be filled with all the fullness of God.” Ephesians 3:19
God loves me. This I know. I have begun to discover the love of God which surpasses knowledge. How is it possible to know something the Bible says is beyond knowledge? Knowledge, in the strictest sense, is an intellectual function, but God’s love far surpasses intellectual attainment. It’s the difference between seeing water and being in water. It’s the difference between seeing a bird fly and actually experiencing flight in a hang glider.
The kind of love that surpasses knowledge is experiential love. That is so far above the kind of love that is knowable. And when you know – when you really know that He loves you in that way, everything changes. Faith arises. Fear evaporates. Joy breaks in. Possibilities surface and the world becomes a different place for you. It has for me.
The most important revelation you can have in business or life is that God loves you. That is not theoretical, philosophical or even theological. It is not intellectual, hypothetical or merely emotional. It is factual, evidential and transformational. It is unfathomable, unimaginable, uncontainable and completely unconditional. And when you know this at your core, you seek out His presence, not out of duty, but out of desire. And He meets you there. The things He shares with you are both wondrous and practical, wise and powerful.
What a difference a revelation can make in someone’s life. I received an email from South Africa yesterday from a man who told me that he was able to apply successfully the things I teach in Selling Among Wolves, achieving sales averaging $1,000,000 per day for all of 2008! And God has given me so much more to pass on! In fact, I felt the Lord prompting me this morning to invite those of you who have found help or value in this blog over the years, who want to learn those things He is showing me, who are engaged in any kind of business activity to join me on a private conference call limited to about a dozen folks per call.
On that call, I will be sharing with you what the Lord is doing in my life and how that can affect you in your vocational or ministry calling in a very big way. The reason for the small group is that I will be inviting those interested into an inner circle of communication where I can download, in a coaching environment, the wisdom and life He is imparting to me and I want to know and actually speak with those who will choose to travel this road with me. The time has come and there is much I have to share with you. If you want to be invited to the call, please reply to this email or send one to my office at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can confirm a time. We will begin scheduling our calls next week.
