Day 6 (1-21-17) Love through service part 2
“Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance, and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Hebrews 12:1-2
Thought: Doing Jesus Christ things breaks you free from the natural, and catapults you into the Spiritual.
We do not or cannot do enough to buy a relationship with Jesus, it is a free gift that He gives us. The doing comes from the joy of recognizing and experiencing the love that comes from this free gift. You see Jesus in an unconditional love relationship with God saw that His life of sacrifice and death could give every person the chance to experience the same love relationship He had with God. So His life purpose on the earth became YOU not Him. Serving Jesus Christ by helping and encouraging others becomes a joy, because of what Jesus did. Serving and giving breaks the chains of selfishness and lust for the natural from me and gives me a heart of compassion for others. Each act of serving given by Jesus, done for Jesus is given back to Jesus for His glory. We do these things not to get anything back, that would be selfish, but we do them because of the love relationship. Start serving other’s unconditionally, first in your family, then your Church, and then community. Want to learn more about this? Contact us and we would love to serve you in seeking to break the chains of the natural and seek Jesus Christ.
