1-14-18 The Crossing To New Life
Joy Peace Purpose, those are the words that welcome you at the podium. The worship service at the Crossing was amazing. To me, it felt like a concert with the lights beaming with the songs of worship. Beautiful Spirit filled praising and worship. You know, that feeling of being in love with Jesus that ignites deep deep down in your soul. Fan the flame!
Again, I have a tendency to write down the message for me because that is how I learn and retain knowledge to better seek understanding. I write it down, review, repent and repeat. Only through action of knowledge is there understanding. Here is what I wrote “Being a Christian is not being religious it is being an example of love through Christ. Therefore, Go.”
When you choose every day to lay down your life for Christ you make way for the waves of love, the more love the bigger the wave. I see it as simple as being the wife, parent, daughter God calls us to be. That is love.
Accepting Jesus is a radical change. For those with nothing to tithe how will you do it? Easy. Tithe in the form of prayer and love. I did not have but a dime in my purse but I gave it along with a prayer for this Church’s ministry. Which are many and ever growing like that of the body of Christ. When it comes to what is God’s will for your life? Is it not clear that we are all called to do the same and that is to love? Love thy God with all thine heart and soul and understanding. Don’t let go of hope. Honestly desire God’s will above your own. Selfishness is the opposite of love, when you give honestly love honestly and proclaim for all to see that Jesus saved you, literally, what more will He ask of you? His will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven. Do you have burden of finances? Give those burdens to God but do not sit idle, take the initiative and that initiative is inviting the Holy Spirit to use you each and every single day. How then, does love not pour from your actions? Simply by not letting go of what is holding you back and 97% of the hold back is one’s self. Self-seeking, self-indulging, self-pity. Give up being selfish because selfishness is hate. God is love and that love is all consuming when Jesus is Lord of your Life. Suffering leads to obedience, be obedient and no longer suffer. Resentment leads to repentance and in turn leads to replenishing of the soul. Filling your cup with love and praying it overflows. We are the winds of change with the words that come from our mouth. We are reminded every word that comes from your mouth is recorded in heaven. Now, what do you have to say? Anything not out of love should not be said. Speak love, speak truth or don’t speak. My world perspective has changed now to an eternal perspective. Urgent Message: the clock is ticking in the mind of man but time is a man made concept there is only God’s good time. And that is perfect. I love how the good word means the perfect word but because He is so humble we use the term good. Do good today for today is a good day. Now, go forth with the willingness to embrace God’s will every single day and at the root of it all it is simply to love, He does the work He holds the non existent clock that is a delusion of man for the only time we need to tell is God’s perfect timing, not delayed, not rushed but perfect. Amen.
