Good evening, everyone! How are you doing on this Thursday? We’re almost at the end of another week That finish line is getting closer and you need to keep going. Yhank God for all his amazing blessings and mercies. Take the time to count them and you will see you are truly blessed.
Speaking of blessings, my pastor is a blessing. Josh gave a dynamic sermon and I have the notes right here. This is a delectable meal. Have your plates ready. Then fill up the Tupperware and give it away.
Be willing to appreciate the simple gospel of Jesus Christ. The teachings of Jesus is truth that cuts deeply and sets us free. Sometimes our brokenness can hold us back. God wants a relationship with us. Live uncomfortable for other people so they know we have a God who cares for us. God still hasn’t given up on us. He believes in what the spirit of his son can do through us. There’s still hope. We must tap into the simple love that God has. He wants nothing from you. He wants to walk you through an amazing life. God is directing us in a place that’s amazing. We have freedom to make decisions, to honor God with our choices. We can be delusional and think that things will continue as it is because of the world we live in. Its time to get serious of our spiritual responsibility. See behind the natural things. There’s a spiritual solution and there’s a need for a prayer in our heart. We can’t keep our faith to ourselves. Without faith we can’t relaese people into morality. Lay hold of the reality that we have needs for our physical bodies. We have a need for our spiritual bodies as well.
“There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh, that the righteous requirement of the law might be fulfilled in us who do not walk according to the flesh but according to the Spirit. For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit, the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.”
Romans 8:1-6 NKJV
The spiritual standpoint is unseen but its the one that really matters. The law of death came from Adam and his sin. We don’t get to decide when a person has value. Get beyond that thinking that natural problems have natural solutions. The solutions are spiritual. Our value is in the spirit. The Holy Spirit is our comforter and the spiritual solution for what we go through. We must believe this by faith. Then things will change.
“The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”
John 10:10 NKJV
Jesus wants us to have life. He is our connection to heaven. Eternal life is not something we wait for but something we live out now.
“Therefore we must give the more earnest heed to the things we have heard, lest we drift away.”
Hebrew 2:1 NKJV
We can neglect our salvation. Don’t miss the essence that we are a spiritual being on a spiritual journey. The mirror of the word is more important than the mirror we look in. We have to live for more than what we can see. We will never be fulfilled until we see the eternal value of someone else. We now live by the law of liberty through what Jesus did. It’s not about us. Don’t be confused by how you feel. The feelings don’t matter. They are not spiritual proof. Live your life like Jesus is coming back. We must develop ourselves spiritually.
“You therefore, beloved, since you know this beforehand, beware lest you also fall from your own steadfastness, being led away with the error of the wicked.”
2 Peter 3:17 NKJV
We’re either growing or we’re dying. Don’t wait for someone else to respond. You respond by faith. If you’re not learning from Jesus everyday, you’re learning from someone else. It doesn’t matter where we are. We can be completely free to please only Jesus. Something amazing happens when we have a life changing moment. We start learning again. David went to the source of spiritual strength and so should we. Keep believing. Keep worshipping in spirit and in truth. Jesus will help us to walk out this life. Be open and honest with God so things can change. Invest in the path that will lead to growth. Be desperate for the presence of God.
“And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice, and yielded up His spirit. Then, behold, the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom; and the earth quaked, and the rocks were split, and the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints who had fallen asleep were raised; and coming out of the graves after His resurrection, they went into the holy city and appeared to many.”
Matthew 27:50-53 NKJV
Jesus shook things up when he took the keys of death from the devil. He prepared a place for us and bought our freedom from the natural things, to see ourselves as spiritual beings that will never die. He gave it all for us and we must arise to a holy place. Don’t be afraid of the Holy Spirit. He will bring truth and life.
