Too often we can be distracted by the world and envy a worldly lifestyle. When we truly understand what we have in Jesus we shall not envy the world but the world shall envy us! Life with Jesus is a life to be envied.
God's invisible qualities have been made plain to us through the things that he has made. God is our creator, and he is the creator of the universe. We need to stay in the place where we are in awe of the wonder of creation - it points us to God.
The Bible says that 'the life is in the blood'. This is the very reason why the blood of Jesus is so powerful. Through his blood that was shed for us on the cross we receive his life - eternal life. There is power in the blood!
In a world where so many people struggle over their identity the Bible has much to say about those who are born again. An understanding of what the Bible says about who we are will keep us free from an 'identity crisis' and leave us empowered to serve the kingdom with confidence.
A great message on how many people are looking for alternative ways of having a spiritual encounter and ways in which we can engage them with the gospel. It includes Simone's testimony of how she came out of that world.
When Jesus set out for Jerusalem to face the cross the Bible says that he resolved to go there, or he 'fixed his face'. To do great things for the kingdom involves sacrifice on our part and we need to learn the power of resolve. Jesus focused on the joy set before him and this is where his resolve came from. Are we focused on the same or do we only see the trials we are facing now?
