You know what's wonderful about loving the Lord? He cleans your heart. He sweeps all hate, stupidity, bias and ignorance from the corners of your heart. There is no room for anything...except love and abiding in his presence. He's too BIG...so there's just no room for anything else.... YES! He is just "THAT POWERFUL AND FILLING!!!" Yet, so many of us don't see it. So many of us...use our politics, religion, and moral standards to "BUILD THE JESUS" that we want to see and believe in....
I have to back-up, back-out and self-check myself, every minute, every day...and, I'm okay with that. I'm thankful for this! What a blessing to be able to "check-yourself" and return to the ROCK!!! In this world, we will stray, but through his BLOOD, we are saved and brought back to his feet.
But, the truth is...abiding in him, is all you need.
When you sit at his feet, nothing else matters. Yeah, people will call you weak, stupid and more.... But, what does it matter, for everyone to think you are powerful, outspoken, action-oriented and in-control of your life...if you are not sitting with him???? When you abide in him, you know how to think, what to say and when to move. Abiding in Christ is not about being silent and weak. It is ACTION in every sense of the word.
The difference...is that...your thoughts, words and actions are under the influence of Christ, instead of you or this world. Let us kneel!!! When we are weak, he is strong!
Thank you, Lord, for your mercy and grace!
Matthew 7:21 ESV
“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.
