Direct-Intervention; a windfall of Time, Truth, and Testimony is a Believers dream. Jesus rose to Heaven so the Enchanted-One would come to earth knitting Salvation into beings. Each phase of rescue is God’s gift. The Voracity of Scripture makes or breaks an advocates bond to Sin.
Lent is the season of Exaltation and Holiness. God fused humanity in Vision and Proof. Humans are able to imagine great things; the Holy One designs our dreams into reality as evidence of our Lord’s grace. Who or What will be Your next electrifying flair made possible through the Living Spirit of Christ?
“And this is God’s plan: Both Gentiles and Jews who believe the Good News share equally in the riches inherited by God’s children. Both are part of the same body, and both enjoy the promise of blessings because they belong to Christ Jesus. By God’s grace and mighty power, I have been given the privilege of serving him by spreading this Good News.
Though I am the least deserving of all God’s people, he graciously gave me the privilege of telling the Gentiles about the endless treasures available to them in Christ. I was chosen to explain to everyone this mysterious plan that God, the Creator of all things, had kept secret from the beginning.
God’s purpose in all this was to use the church to display his wisdom in its rich variety to all the unseen rulers and authorities in the heavenly places. This was his eternal plan, which he carried out through Christ Jesus our Lord.” (Ephesians 3:6-11)
Previous generations pretended to Know and Love like Jesus; few remained Faithful and True to His Teachings, and others failed miserably. Those went on Rule-in-Worldliness rather than Serve-in-Gratitude. In the future Believers we must Humbled-in-Service yet shrewd enough to know who to Exalt and Why.
In the beginning God came close, the Essence of Life, and His Kingdom is present in All Creation. Any religious Guru can claim: God’s Unleashed, Romance, and Understanding; but only through Christ can the Holy Spirit allow access into Christianity.
The Body of Christ began in Prayer, deep meditative Love by Mary, the Mother of Jesus. Imagine her message from the angel Gabriel; will you conceive God’s child. Then contemplate her Naked, Bowed in Prayer on a riverbank. All at once an essence brings Mary’s forehead into the water with a YES; that water’s ripple became our Baptismal Font seeded by God for all humanity; His Life Giving Water present in Believers.
“Then the angel showed me the River of Life-Giving water, sparkling like crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb down the middle of its street.” (Revelation 22:1-2)
The streets are filled with Believers. Some Novice, others Ordained or simply blessed with eternal Salvation. God is a mystery. Today, please contemplate being or becoming part of His Prayerful Kingdom on earth.
Let’s pray for those nestled in a Field of Dreams; may God grant them a Peaceful reprieve from Noise, Nonsense, and Nostalgia. The clamor of traffic playing heavy metal music in a mind is somewhat disturbing. Useless Babble interferes with worship and gathering Nick-Knacks is a Financial Debauchery. Many reminisce about failed tradition while visions turn to dust, but those steadfast in Faith and sterling Hope continue to excel toward the Heavens.
Jesus launches platforms daily. His Apparitions toss out failure and ring in New-Life; people who promote from Within are able to stimulate those around them. You can bet God has layers and layers of well Refined Saints just waiting in the winds; they instil Serenity when Believers clash and courage when Devils frolic. Unruly type try to hinder Spiritual Renewal but Jesus unveils their shortcomings so that your Confidence will not fail.
“Now let me say this, dear brothers and sisters: The time that remains is very short, so husbands should not let marriage be their major concern. Happiness or sadness or wealth should not keep anyone from doing God’s work. Those in frequent contact with things of the world should make good use of them without becoming attached to them, for this world and all it contains will pass away.
In everything you do I want you to be free from the concerns of this life. An unmarried man can spend his time doing the Lord’s work and thinking how to please him. But a married man can’t do this so well. He has to think about his earthly responsibilities and how to please his wife. His interests are divided.
In the same way a woman who is no longer married or has never been married can be more devoted to the Lord in body and in spirit, while the married woman must be more concerned with her earthly responsibilities and how to please her husband.” (1 Corinthians 7:29-34 NLT)
Trust God to steer us through things of this world; His Unyielding Grace within overcomes temptation and sin that corrupt our souls. Serving the Most High is joyful, its reward is Limitless, but our time to serve is fleeting. Salvation is reserved for those who straddle the Trenches of Humanity with enough Wisdom to keep their workings Holy.
God created His Trinity for Protection, thank you for choosing His Living Words to Share and Grow with. Moving scriptures through Jesus is a Social Blast! Only the Holy Spirit can shield against demonic intrusion. Believers call on Jesus like Nerds on Networks; happy are those who are Geeks for God.
Lord knows Spiritual Renewal begins as a mindset. Electronic Posting nurtures those beliefs who ripple over electronic wavelengths; He Mastered their platform and continues to improve its workings. Cyber Bullies pull at the yoke of Salvation and need to be monitored; take heart brethren the Trinity is Alive and Guarding Apostolic Networks across the world.
“For everyone who call on the name of the Lord will be saved.’ But how can they call on Him if they have not yet believed? And how can they hear without someone to preach? And how can people preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring the Good News!”
But not everyone has heeded the Good News; for Isaiah says, “Lord, who has believed what was heard from us?” Thus faith comes from what is heard, and what is heard COMES THROUGH THE WORD OF CHRIST. But I ask did they not hear? Certainly they did; for “The voice has gone forth to all the earth, and their words to the ends of the earth.” (Romans 10:13-18 NABRE)
Jesus Geeks help assure the Good News travels fast. Far and wide there are people praying for the Word of God to proliferate Peace. Sharing scripture is very rewarding; there is a Bit of Truth for every occasion and every Christian’s Terminal can promote them.
Heavenly Father, the joy of being your servant never ceases to amaze. As you carry us over the Thresholds of Life be patient with us. Individual understanding can never take the place of Spiritual acceptance, but you’re Angels and Saints have made their marks in humanity. Grant that we too be humbled in your service as international Patriots of Peace.
Societies here on earth are constantly being challenged by evil Institutions. That is why God sent Jesus over two thousand years ago. His actions take root in people of faith who strive to please Almighty God whose Knowledge is Bountiful as Raindrops in a Rainforest and just as refreshing.
“So get rid of all the filth and evil in your lives, and humbly except the message God has planted in your hearts, for it is strong enough to save your souls. And remember it is a message to obey not to listen to. If you don’t obey, you are only fooling yourself.
For if you listen and don’t obey, it is like looking at your face in the mirror but doing nothing to improve your appearance. You see yourself, walk away, and forget what you look like. But if you keep looking steady into God’s perfect law, the law that sets you free, and if you do what it says and don’t forget what you heard, then God will bless you for doing it.” (James 1:21-25 NLT)
Sorry if certain pages have been Repeated lately. Our Lord is in control of His Messengers who are bound to oblige their Master. Tough times in a watershed are essential for Spiritual Growth. And though many do not understand why Believers do what God asks trust it is for the best. It seems those who should be asking GOD for Answers do not, but instead ask and rely on mere mortals in Crucial matters.
Juice for Jesus is an integral part of a believer’s day; I could say Join in Jesus or Jingle for Jesus because this flock rejoices in His Good News with buzz words, hash tags and social invites aimed at amplifying your thoughts. Night and day society complains about being stuck in their routines. Increasing awareness is key to unity and selfless devotion. The evolution of evangelism began in parable; your fruition is fermenting in an Essence of Christ.
His Holy Spirit managed to bring us together. It wasn’t easy because there are so many enchanting fellowships from which to pick, so don’t pick and choose let His Spirit schedule your devotional. We want your ism focused on Christ. God loves it when you’re serious about unity. He has introduced environmental awareness, healthy living, and Spiritual Renewal as our mantra, but you and yours may have another focal point.
“And there was considerable murmuring about Him in the crowds. Some said, “He is a good man,” while others said, “No; on the contrary, He misleads the crowd.” Still, no one spoke openly about Him because they were afraid of the Jews.
When the feast was already half over, Jesus went up into the Temple area and began to teach. The Jews were amazed and said, “How does He know scripture without having studied?” Jesus answered them and said, “My teaching is not my own but is from the one who sent me.” (John 7:12-16 NABRE)
I agree that what we share is not the norm in bible study. Some even say I live in, “La La land,” and that is true. Lay ministers often live in society amongst brethren of all denominations in a land of disbelief, but we here work for Christ and are consecrated to eternal Wisdom through Christ Jesus. God chose this particular sect to enthrall the core of humanity with True Living Words, come share in His quest.
