Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
Philippians 2:5 (KJV)
I recall the night I made that esteemed and honourable declaration which would change my life forever. I had just made Jesus the Lord and Saviour of my life. It would go down in my life’s story as one of those ‘night of nights’, monumental from Heaven’s perspective. It was as Rev 2:4 expressed, THE FIRST LOVE EXPERIENCE.
1 John 4:19 beautifully paints this in one short sentence, ‘We love Him (God) because He first loved us.’
It’s the sound of the sweetness of salvation, the love song played eternally, unfeigned and true in origins, personal in character and noble in heart; yes, this song that the angels of Heaven marvel at. What revelation could be so great, what revelation could go beyond words but the gift of love inscribed in our hearts. It is heavenly overflow, an expression of the fullness of the Spirit of God.
The calling of man to enter into his completeness is found in becoming one with the One who created him. The Voice of God is calling out to you today to COME. Oh that you would hear that melodious sound; the song that declares your freedom, and words that express your hope and boldly declare your transformation. Not only did He call you, He came to you and by His Words He made a WAY for you to come. It is the way of TRUTH and LIFE. It is the way back to the FATHER’S HEART.
It’s about who rules your life. That faithful sermon that brought conviction to my heart to respond to God, still echoes in my spirit today to remind me of that blessed night. “WHAT WILL IT PROFIT A MAN IF HE GAINS THE WHOLE WORLD BUT LOSES HIS VERY SOUL?!”…My friend JESUS CHRIST is the ANSWER to your Salvation not only at the time you declare Him Lord but also when you let Him be LORD of every single moment of your life.
If you are faced with a problem today and are asking, “how can God help me?” the answer is in your heart. There is a VOICE that your heart knows, THE VOICE OF DESTINY, THE VOICE OF HOPE, CALLING OUT TO YOU to enter into your breakthrough and your salvation. God is calling everyday. Man fails to see this truth, that the outwardness of life is noise that can restrict one from hearing God’s voice. Outwardness can loose it’s meaning if the inwardness Of the Holy Spirit is not discovered and embraced, and the beginning of this Journey is making Jesus Lord of your life. Those who discover the full meaning of these words will understand this. Do you desire to experience a walk filled with joy and peace? Jesus is your answer.
Even as a Christian, religion may sound right, but without the life of Christ it is but empty rituals only to serve the purpose of Man.
All else may fail but the LOVE OF GOD will not fail you. God promises to keep you when you trust in Him. God promises to lead you when you follow Him. God promises to reveal His love and Glory to you when you come to Him and seek Him with all your heart. In fact it has always been God’s desire for you to know Him. LET THIS MIND BE IN YOU!
Are you at the crossroad of something small or big? no matter where you are at in life, this message is for you. Enter in the Love of God that survives and conquers; bears all things in hope and courage; embraces all things; and leads you in the paths of life. It is an eternally lighthouse shinning, never failing when you call. God wants you to know you can trust in Him and find perfect peace.
LET THIS MIND BE IN YOU:
