“Let not mercy and truth forsake you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart, and so find favor and high esteem in the sight of God and man.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding, in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths.
Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and depart from evil. It will be health to your flesh, and strength to your bones.” Proverbs 3:3-7
There is a way known to us humans, then there are the ways of God which transcends our limited understanding.
Yet, when we allow the Holy Spirit to fill us freshly each day, seeking to walk in the ways we are led in attentively opening our thoughts to discern our paths, we will be walking according the teachings of Christ.
The gospel, often called the good news, is more than words written on pages. It is more than just rhetoric spewed out of the mouths of those professing to be Christian.
There is a power that enters our hearts, when we meditatively read scriptures asking the Holy Spirit to teach us, leading us in the ways of the One in whose life dwells in us, the Christ. There is an ability and new life that comes into us when the Holy Spirit is poured into us, where the supernatural ability of His life infused into the fabric of our beings, becomes our life.
This is not something that can be explained in any human way as the Life we are gifted when we believe in Jesus and in receiving the person of the Holy Spirit. Yet, we can know this sense of having been touched by the Lord in this way, where our hearts burst forth springs of a continual refreshing of the Living Waters of the Christ Spirit life, igniting renewed life in us each day and in all those we encounter in a personal way.
We have been empowered in the ability of the Holy Spirit to walk in the midst of any circumstance, situation or adversity life brings our ways, as we are learning to rest in His ability and not our own.
It is the Holy Spirit who gives us wisdom and a Godly discernment in being able to speak words of encouragement, intercede in prayer for others, and touch the minds, hearts, and souls of men, woman, and children we meet along this journey called life.
We have been entrusted as representatives of the Christ in us, and this is a Holy honor and a great responsibility in taking our role seriously in allowing His love to be who is manifested in and through our thoughts, our words, our tones, our manners, and our behaviors towards others.
Each day we are given another opportunity in allowing the life of Christ, whose fullness and love has been infused into every core fabric of our beings, overflow from us, touching souls, sparking hope, in allowing this Spirit to enter into the souls of those we cross paths with, so they too, can taste of this heavenly love who is the source of this new life.
When we walk in true love towards all, being a steady presence of the Spirit life in a genuine and sincere manner, others will know Christ is the living true God and in knowing He is alive, they will encounter the resurrection Spirit of Christ in and through our love towards them.
Our Father God pursues each one with His embracive and all-inclusive love, not willing that any person should perish, but desiring that all should come to know Him, so He can draw them to Himself, uniting souls in the fellowship of the Triune Godhead, where authentic and purity are known in this divine dwelling place of love.
If you desire to know this love and to enter into obtaining a full life that will truly satisfy your soul, this life is available to you today. Anyone who calls on the name of Jesus, believing He is the Christ, can have this new life of the Spirit now.
Ask Jesus to show Himself to you in a real and personal way and this true God who has loved you, this living God who sees your thoughts, this expansive God who knows every deed you have ever done, this God who has always been near to you, this God who has heard your cries, this God who is in the good times and the bad times, is the same God who in His Mercy, will enter into you by gifting you with the Holy Spirit, filling you with an unimaginable love, giving you hope that can be fully experienced in your now and you will enter into the fullness known in this Holy Spirit life.
