“Freely you have received, freely give. So do not be afraid. There is nothing concealed that will not be disclosed, or hidden that will not be made known. What I tell you in the dark, speak in the daylight, what is whispered in your ear, proclaim from the roofs."
My Thoughts Lately:
Learning not to idolize things in our lives, to continue making Jesus our focal point and consistently pursuing HIS work- not ours. It is a constant battle to realign our vision with the Lord’s and we have to always re-evaluate our motivations and lifestyle in order to continue follow God’s plan. We also need to take time to rest and BE STILL to hear God redirecting us. We need to shut the door and spend intimate alone time in order to HEAR God. God prepares us for greatness and makes us great spiritual warriors through intimate alone time. Serving God isn’t just doing a bunch of things that follow along with the Christian religion. It’s not just a couple of choices we make like going to live and work at a Children’s Home. It is a lifestyle. Don’t just do, LIVE just as Jesus did. His ministry and his life were intertwined. He didn't proclaim the truth about God only when he had made friends with the people first, nor was he afraid to hurt people's feelings or lose favor with people -- He simply spoke truth. There were not many boundaries of when, where, and who he would minister to. Every opportunity he used to draw people in and show the love of His father. It is easy to minister to people when we keep up the boundaries. It takes effort and vulnerability to make ministry a LIFESTYLE. People everywhere should be able to recognize we are believers in Christ and that we bring light wherever we go. People are dying without knowing the eternal salvation that is available through Jesus. Christ freely gave us our salvation -- It is our job to freely give that same opportunity to others. Are we willing to stand in the gap for people and claim victory and truth for their lives, or will we wait?
Love with no boundaries, and proclaim salvation to ALL.
