The Divine Pacemaker

"Whoever keeps His word, truly the love of God is perfected in him. By this we know that we are in Him. He who says he abides in Him ought himself also to walk just as He walked" (1 John 2:5-6).
Over one million pacemakers are installed each year. The small device, inserted in the abdomen or chest, sends an electrical charge to stimulate the heart. The life-changing device regulates the heartbeat.
Being saved through faith in Christ might be illustrated as the Great Physician installing a Divine Pacemaker in us: Himself. We know that we are in Him. The whole package of His presence, purity, power, and perfection indwells us.
Walking in faithful obedience to His Word and seeking more of Him, we soon realize the need for Him to have more of us to walk just as He walked. Depending on self puts us out of spiritual rhythm, resulting in disobedience and frustration.
We continue to seek Him, until we come to a point of confessing our emptiness, and asking for His filling. That is entire sanctification--ALL OF US being filled with ALL OF CHRIST. It's an experience subsequent to salvation, that activates the Divine Pacemaker planted in us.
The Holy Spirit sends a "spiritual charge" that puts us back into rhythm with God's will--and more, releasing His enabling power to love Him and love others. The love of God is perfected in us, fulfilling our hopes for human perfection, as we Keep His Word.
  • Our being and doing are perfected in His credibility. 
  • Our praying and planning are perfected in His wisdom.
  • Our weakness and inability are perfected in His ability. 
  • Our vulnerability and timidity are perfected in His strength.
  • Our self-image and self-effort are perfected in His beauty.
And, the Divine Pacemaker never wears out!
