RECOGNIZING AND UNDERSTANDING YOUR PATH TO FREEDOM IS ROOTED IN CHRIST:
WRITTEN BY SHIRLEY RHODES:
RECOGNIZING AND UNDERSTANDING YOUR PATH TO FREEDOM IS ROOTED IN CHRIST is the key that opens your heart and spirit for revival with purpose. Your hope, faith and trust should be built on nothing less than Jesus and his love for you. When you are able to combine those three elements, you will experience blessings that are ever-flowing, because of “the sacrifice.” Try asking yourself one simple question, “Do I believe?” While Jesus was preparing hearts to receive his blessings, many challenged him; at one point he responded, “I told you, but you don’t believe…” (John 10: 30 MSG); are you any different?
RECOGNIZING AND UNDERSTANDING YOUR PATH TO FREEDOM IS ROOTED IN CHRIST gives you hope for a better life. How you perceive the word hope can influence the outcome of your life in many ways, but first the meaning. The Bible explains it this way, …hope that is seen is not hope; for why does one still hope for what he sees? But if we hope for what we don’t see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance (patience) (Romans: 8:24-25, NKJV). Today as we share the gospel with others, it is our “hope” that seeds planted will bring forth new creatures in Christ.
RECOGNIZING AND UNDERSTANDING YOUR PATH TO FREEDOM IS ROOTED IN CHRIST aligns you with faith, knowing that God will do just what he says he will. One thing is true, that is how we interpret faith as the source of our strength and joy. The bible says, that faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen…By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God…but without faith it is impossible to please God (Hebrews 11:1-6). By applying faith to our calling as disciples we are encouraged that as we plant, the increase will come from God, we can do nothing in our own.
Trust in God with all your heart and he will give you all things that pertain to life as you work to accomplish the mission for which you have been chosen. The harvest is ripe for gleaming, the world stage is set, now is the time to activate what has been birth in you to share with those seeking to know more about the blessed hope of Jesus and his love. The Bible says, “Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in the land, and feed on his faithfulness. Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart (Psalm 37: 3-4).
So, your mission of hope should be the driving force that propels you towards the next level of obedience and sacrifice, RECOGNIZING AND UNDERSTANDING YOUR FREEDOM IS ROOTED IN CHRIST. Don’t be afraid to share the “good news” of the gospel of Jesus Christ with others.
