Braver Satyrday -God encroaches boundaries. HE is much more interested in our freedom than us being comfortable with our privacy. Father wants to invade every part of us – spirit, soul and body. Furthermore, HE does this through community. You can run but you just cannot hide forever because God wants us free to know Him and be known by HIM AND to be known by others and for us to know others. What is Community? Communication plus unity. It is so powerful when you let the LOVE come through…even when you are not comfy in the process. Love, d
Braver Wednesday – 1 Corinthians 5:8 God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us…WHOA that by itself is a stop in your tracks and think about how we don’t even show one another the time of day for goodness sake…but we have the ONE Who made us Who SHOWED US UPCLOSE AND PERSONAL HIS LOVE
1 Corinthians 5:9… much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from the wrath (the destruction that was to come in 70AD..when the Old Covenant was judged…you do realize God has already sent HIS wrath and that what Jesus said was finished was completed in 70AD?? Everyone should understand the historical aspect of God’s word and what happened)…
1 Corinthians 10 …IF while we were enemies, we were reconciled, changed mutually and changed TOWARD GOD THROUGH the death of HIS SON much more having been reconciled – we shall be saved by HIS lifetime….so those who were delivered…..were preserved through HIS LIFE….HIS LIFETIME..HIS LIVING FOR US…..HE LIVES FOREVER! AND HE LIVES INSIDE OF US!! BAM…….never alone…..born again…born from heaven…..HE STEPPED IN YOU……NOT JUST BESIDE YOU..NOT JUST AROUND YOU..NOT JUST ON YOU…BUT INSIDE WHERE HE fills every nook and cranny with HIMSELF………….
1 Corinthians 11 … NOT ONLY THIS BUT we ALSO exult in God through our Lord Jesus Christ through Whom we have NOW RECEIVED THE RECONCILIATION…the exchange…the adjustment…the restoration to divine favor. WAIT!! We have already received???? SERIOUSLY??? HOW CAN THIS BE………OH…..COULD THIS BE WHAT THEY CALL GOOD NEWS????
1 Corinthians 18 – so then, as through one transgression there resulted Condemnation – an adverse sentence – a judgment against all men – even so, through one act of righteousness, there resulted JUSTIFICATION – ACQUITTAL – REMISSION, REDEMPTION, DELIVERANCE FROM GUILT, DELIVERANCE FROM THE POWER OF SIN of LIFE to ALL MEN. YES…ADAM CONDEMNED ALL MANKIND……WITHOUT OUR PERMISSION AND WITHOUT OUR HELP AND BEFORE WE WERE EVER BORN HE BROUGHT DEATH TO US. YES…JESUS JUSTIFIED………ALL MANKIND… WITHOUT OUR PERMISSION AND WITHOUT OUR HELP AND BEFORE WE WERE EVER BORN HE BROUGHT LIFE TO US.
WHAT WILL YOU DO WITH THAT???
It’s a priceless process to grasp, receive and understand that HE already endured the price so that we can step into the priceless process. JUST RECEIVE.
The journey to knowing HIM and being known by HIM …is priceless and so be patient with you through the process.
I’m cognizant there is a bigger historical and spiritual context and a smaller context…but this was what Jesus was loving me with……hope it encourages you to be the new you…….that you already have become while on the priceless journey……to becoming more like Him. Love – d
Motivated Monday -If you make a decision to be someone different but make no steps toward it – you may see zero change.
If you decide to do something different yet have no plan to move forward, you will go nowhere.
Take steps. Make a plan.
Be encouraged and watch
Until soon- d
Fearless Friday – be without fear today.
Love yourself and others without fear… Don’t decide on that book until you read through all the pages…covers can be deceptive. People look one way but inside completely different story. Just be kind.
Until next time,
Tenacious Tuesday-COME TO ME!! This is the song I played for my sister over and over as she moved to heaven. Today I’m remembering life. Remembering my sister. Thinking of my sisters here on earth. Time with Him.Time with me.
Peace. Rest. Clarity.
Wisdom. Reassurance. Boldness. Love-d
