You are welcome here.

It’s possible that you’ve stumbled upon this little blog, and are wondering about all this “divine encounter” talk.

The premise of my writing — no, really of my entire life — is that God, the Creator of the Universe, wants to be in a relationship with people, His creation. That’s why He made us in the first place. And it’s the only way we will be truly fulfilled in life. Because it’s what we were made for.

You can find more information about how to begin your relationship with God here.

My goal for this blog

If you’re like most of my readers, you have a strong belief in the God of the Bible, and you are aware that this belief should impact your life in significant ways.

I know how you feel! My primary goal as I add words to the blogosphere in this space is to point people toward intimacy with God in a relationship that affects how we think and what we say and what we do. One that impacts life at home, life at work, life in community, and life in the world.

If this resonates with you as it does with thousands of others who visit A Divine Encounter each month, you’re in the right place!

You might find these links helpful as you get to know me and my blog a little better.

    Are we really entitled to anything at all?what about the faithfulness of our spouse?

    • Jennifer Clarke

      Hi, Joseph! It sounds like perhaps you’ve been reading this post about entitlement; you’ve asked a great question on this topic. Some would say that yes, of course we’re entitled to the faithfulness of a spouse, and I absolutely understand that perspective. But at the very heart of the issue, I’m not sure even that is true.

      “Entitled” refers to being inherently deserving of a right or privilege. What makes a person – for purposes of illustration, let’s call him Bill – inherently deserving of the right to have a faithful spouse? Bill might say that his faithfulness toward his wife makes him inherently deserving of her faithfulness. But can Bill (or any of us) actually say he’s been completely faithful to his spouse at all times? Jesus states in Matthew 5:28 that a lustful look is adultery of the heart. Compared with the physical act of adultery, we might say adultery of the heart is not a big deal. But compared with the completely pure holiness of God, adultery of the heart is nothing short of wickedness, which means Bill falls far short of true faithfulness, as do all of us.

      These are some initial thoughts on the matter. I hope they clarify my position. Please feel free to respond if you have further questions, or if you disagree, as I’m eager to be corrected if I’m wrong. Thanks for your thoughtful question!
