Thus says the Lord: Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, Let not the mighty man glory in his might, Nor let the rich man glory in his riches; But let him who glories glory in this, That he understands and knows Me, That I am the Lord, exercising lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth. For in these I delight, says the Lord. (Jeremiah 9:23, 24 NKJV)
We all need to read this verse often. We often stress ourselves and others out in our attempts at being so important.
When we humble ourselves and give the glory and the responsibility to its proper recipient, we truly understand Jesus.
Life was not meant to be always easy, but loving God and receiving His grace by way of the Lord was never to be this hard.
There is nothing religious about being holy. There is no set of rules or instructions to being holy. Bringing yourself and your heart to the Lord and simply allowing Him to be who He is
defines holy. When He takes all your broken and builds it into beauty. Takes all your crimson and washes it as white as new. Now, that is holy!
God doesn’t want anything from you except you. All the selfish and often down right disgraceful labels people have created to obtain Gods love is JUST THE WORLD. Not a person who has really received Jesus could tell another they don’t qualify, maybe next Sunday.
God loves you ALL and Jesus saves us all and not one of us has the right to tell anyone what God wants for them. He simply asks we show up, we are reverent, we are real and we respect.
If someone claims to be ChristLike and keeps others from Christ you’ve got to be kidding. We are instruments of ministry and the GOOD NEWS. Not the dictators or wardens of Heaven.
Gods love is already given . Nothing you believe you have to do would be useful God. That doesn’t make us God or Christlike. It doesn’t pave the way to your salvation.
What God wants is what we don’t think He wants. The messed up, confused and beautiful disaster that you were created to be is His desire. We are shallow, one dimensional beings a lot of the time , who don’t think about tomorrow let alone today and its power.
The big picture is hard to see when you cant. It’s not our intended view. However, if you look beyond the surface you’ll discover that’s where the Spirit resides. Thats when you’ll stop all the ridiculous rituals that some say is in His Name. Just say HIS NAME. Let the real show God has in store for YOUR LIFE begin! Lights, camera, distraction! God is not interested. Be a Light, for Him and give Him interaction. You’re now seeing the bigger picture of the point and the peace that is all you need work for. Inner peace is not an option. You doing a list of chores and criticizing is not a solution. GOD IS WORTHY. JESUS ALLOWED US TO BE That is the beginning of a beautiful journey with yourself and Him. I promise you will never want to come back.
Be blessed and be a blessing. All else of this world is vanity
