Connecting Humanity to the
Heart of the Matter:
Aligning Spirit, Soul & Body with Identity & Destiny

Acts 20:22-24
"And see, now I go bound in the spirit to Jerusalem, not knowing the things that will happen to me there, except that the Holy Spirit testifies in every city, saying that chains and tribulations await me. But none of these things move me; nor do I count my life dear to myself, so that I may finish my race with joy, and the ministry which I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God."

What is 

Today, humanity (humankind, the human race) is plagued by many root issues that hinder the quality of life as our Heavenly Father intended. The breakdown of the family and broken homes have prevented many from receiving important things that God intended we get from a mother and father: wholesome physical affection, affirmation, healthy discipline, moral guidance, praise, encouragement, protection, provision and support, just to name a few. When someone is raised lacking any of these, there are voids that create access points for the enemy. Since no parents are perfect and are indeed “human” themselves, we all likely lack something at some level. Or we may have perceived them wrong, and our wrong perception became our truth. This leaves us trying to fill the voids.

Suffering from a widespread identity crisis on a personal and corporate level, we live in a culture that is more and more counter to Christianity. Our young people aspire to be like movie stars or book characters, and few aspire to be like Christ. Church leaders aspire to have celebrity status and are often unwilling to sacrifice all for the call. 

The Apostle Paul confronted the Corinthians for living by the standards of the world. Today, much of society, even in the church at large, has lost a biblical worldview and no longer operates in biblical Kingdom culture. With God removed from schools, courtrooms, and our nation as a whole, this tactic of the enemy attempts to wreak havoc and create an alternate standard that becomes the norm.

This is why we need to get to the HEART OF THE MATTER:

1.  SALVATION and KNOWING OUR IDENTITY as SONS & DAUGHTERS (John 3:1-16, 2 Cor 5:17, Romans 8:14-23)  

Of course it all begins with salvation. Many today are not saved and do not understand that Father God desires a relationship with them. We must make people aware so they can receive the free gift of Jesus! Yet even once we’re saved, many times we learn religion and fail to fully understand that we are little boys and girls with a Big, Loving Dad. We often operate out of a sense of religious obligation, which is burdensome. We find it impossible to ever be “good enough.” Once we come to a full understanding of a love relationship with our Heavenly Father, we receive his grace and understand that apart from Him we can do nothing. He doesn’t expect us to figure it all out and live perfectly. He expects us to pursue our relationship with Him and let Him show us the way. Romans 8 tells us that creation eagerly awaits the sons and daughters of God to be revealed. He intends for His glory to be revealed in us! When we know our identity, people see Jesus. The world is waiting for us! Humanity is in the midst of a major identity crisis and the Lord wants us to reveal His glory in a mighty way.

(John 8:32) 
Before we come to Christ, life’s experiences and perceptions cause our soul realm to be “tied in knots”. When we get saved, we become a new creation in our spirit man, but our soul (mind, will & emotions) still needs work. Romans 12 calls it “renewing the mind.” There are many wounds and lies that lodge in our soul and give the enemy access. These things prevent us from walking in the fullness of all that God intends. Radical Infusion involves allowing Holy Spirit to go on a “search and destroy” mission in our soul to “untie the knots”. This is not a one-time thing, it’s a lifestyle. There are many common traps we fall into and humanity can be connected to the heart of the matter by teaching them how to receive a radical infusion of truth, to heal their wounds and replace the lies. This enables them to better connect to His heart and know His will.

(3 John 1:2)
Our physical bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit. They are designed miraculously by God for us to operate at our full potential. One way the enemy has come to steal destiny is by getting us out of alignment physically. Over 70% of Americans, for example, are overweight or obese. And that includes many believers in the church. We often deal with the Spirit and Soul but we neglect the physical body and succumb to the traps of the enemy in this area. We are powerful in the spirit yet we get out of breath walking up a flight of stairs. Our mobility is limited, our finances are squandered on medications and medical bills, our self-confidence is low, our bodies are weary. It is so important that we take back our health and be equipped for our purpose!

As a recap, MaryLovesLife Ministries exists to CONNECT HUMANITY TO THE HEART OF THE MATTER:

1) to lead people to salvation and know their identity as sons/daughters

2) to lead them to untie the knots of their soul

3) to become godly stewards of their phyiscal body and be fit for the longterm call of God on their life

This will enable them receive their inheritance by aligning in the destiny that was designed for them by God.  And corporately we will shift the culture of earth to look like Heaven.
