There is a deadly lie out there and it’s viciously spreading like wildfire. We have all heard it. The convincingly loud voice that claims, through various media, that we can do anything we want to do and be anything we want to BE…
But the reality is that each and every one of us have personal and circumstantial limitations that place life beyond our control. None of us can just decide to do everything we ever dreamed and become all we desire in this world. Or maybe, with renewed perspective, we can…
While there is enormous potential within and around us to do a blessed amount of good and become more than we could ever imagine, none of it is possible on our own. We are just too frail. Too broken. Too wrapped up in ourselves. Too trapped in things that don’t matter.
The Good News is that a more authoritative voice has already spoken! A fulfilling and fruitful life is indeed possible – in Him!
When we actively believe in God’s Son, Jesus, and receive His invitation to be joined with Him, He fills us with His Holy Spirit. No longer on our own and bound to our own limitations and circumstances, Jesus’ Spirit of compassion partners with us to fulfil His good work in the world as He transforms us to become more and more like Him. In Jesus we can do all He has called us to do and we can BE all He has made us to BE! He calls this abundant life!
Friends, as we enter into the new ‘roaring 20’s’, remember there is only one person God wants us to BE. His desire is for me to BE ME and for you to BE YOU – each of us uniquely reflecting facets of Jesus as a united family!
Free from fear… free from comparison… free from envy… free from prejudice and strife. Yes, still broken and ‘works in progress’, but free to walk into a glorious future with Jesus. Free to receive His love and love in return – bound together as we bless the world around us in His name!
For we are His workmanship [His own master work, a work of art], created in Christ Jesus [reborn from above—spiritually transformed, renewed, ready to be used] for good works, which God prepared [for us] beforehand [taking paths which He set], so that we would walk in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us]. Ephesians 2:10 AMP
May 2020 be a year of abundance in Jesus! With love from our family to yours, Lyn 🙂
