We can put ourselves under a lot of pressure. We expect things on a certain timetable and we can get very results focused. However, as we water our seedlings and keep the soil healthy, we can know that we will see growth in season and a flourishing harvest because healthy things grow.
God created us to be light and free. He made us to bear His image and to walk with Him in the cool of the day. We are built for communion with Him, intimate relationships with others and mission on planet earth.
When we lost our way, we lost our purpose but God so loved the world that He sent love incarnate to earth to rescue what was lost. Jesus, born into a human family, embraced us, healed us, and set us free.
He chose to lay down His life at the cross on Calvary, so we could take up His endless life and be restored to our relationship with our Father God; and then be released into our destiny. Now instead of relying on our own efforts we can put our faith in God and receive the power unto salvation.
As we abide in our loving Lord Jesus, we will bear the fruits of the Spirit. As we receive the abundant supply of grace and the gift of righteousness we will reign in life. We can walk yoked with Jesus’ light and easy burden, as we bring the Kingdom of Heaven to planet earth.
Romans 1:16 (MSG) - It’s news I’m most proud to proclaim, this extraordinary Message of God’s powerful plan to rescue everyone who trusts him, starting with Jews and then right on to everyone else!
