It’s a new week. I couldn’t post yesterday. Here it is, the final installment of the gravity series.
And its for those who have have escaped gravity!
As you wrap up 2015, ponder on this:
If you are sincere with your decision to follow Christ, and embrace the REAL way of living in and through GOD, then it means you had better get on with it. Strip down, start running – and never quit! No extra spiritual fat, no parasitic sins anymore. No low life thinking. No guilt of the former life now passed away! You must not be lightheaded or dismissive about this new way of living
You received Christ into your life as Lord and Saviour.
Most Christians accept the Saviour part easily but find it difficult to come to terms with the Lord part.
A Lord is someone who has influence over another. Like a master. Jesus became your friend, brother and MASTER when you decided to come to him.
But thank God, though you were once slaves of sin, you have become obedient with all your heart to the standard of teaching in which you were instructed and to which you were committed.
And having been set free from sin, you have become the servants of righteousness (of conformity to the divine will in thought, purpose, and action).
– Romans 6:17-18 [AMP]
So the new life is a life free to do what God desires. The good thing with Jesus is that He doesn’t dish out hard instructions to people but rather walks alongside you and works with you to do what God wants. He teaches and helps you conform to the divine will in thought, purpose, and action.
Take the yoke I give you. Put it on your shoulders and learn from me. I am gentle and humble, and you will find rest. This yoke is easy to bear, and this burden is light.
-Matthew 11:29-30 [CEV]
This yoke isn’t hard. It is not stress, it is not heavy. It is light. It is joyful responsibility. Learning isn’t easy but it sure helps to see the end in view. Jesus says, “…and you will find rest.”
But we must keep going in the direction that we are now headed. Philippians 3:16 [CEV]
The escape velocity is the license to an abundant life with God, plug in now!
Whether this short series is new information to you, or a reminder, I hope you picked a thing or two from it.
