As I have sat here, I look over at some of my drafts, and I have about 3 or 4 at this point. It seems at the moment The Spirit is just flooding my head with stuff; scripture, sermons, application, biblical references and bible help website, commentaries…. One thing that I am so happy about is that with all this information, God’s Spirit does move! Thank God I am not just filled with head knowledge. Really, I’ve always been one who has struggled with stuff like most of the Old Testament, lineages, and the like, but when I stop and just take it one passage at a time I do much better. I am slowly learning to not try and know it all, but to read and listen as God’s Spirit leads me to. I know it is God’s Spirit who will give me understanding, and I know that He will reveal to me what He wants me to know and when he wants me to know it; I just need to remember this and obey His leading. So what if I don’t know every account that ever occurred, or if I get my facts mixed up, the point is, or maybe the question we should be aksing is “is their growth?”. I mean this not just in a clearer understanding of the Bible, but in every area of my Christian walk. It’s not just the renewing of our minds, but more of our hearts! Becomming more like Christ in every way is the purpose and the pilgrimage of the Christina Walk. So I challenge you to ask yourself some fundamental questions: Am I being transformed? Am I Going deeper? Am I experiencing continued intimacy and closeness with God? Am I being changed in ways that others takes notice of? Is my prayer life integrated into every area of my life? Do I even have a prayer life? and if not why not? Are there areas in my life that I need to cut out to be able to spend more time with God in prayer and in HIs Word so to be able to grow my relationship with Him the way He wants. These are just a few basic questions, but they are not to be taken lightly for the Christian who is truly serious about their life in Christ. May we constantly strive to become more like Christ in every area of our lives and living a life that brings Him Glory and honor by the way that we live out our lives. Be blessed and May you grow closer to our awesome Lord and Savior who has formed you in His image and desirs a strong, healthy, and continual relationship with His chosen. May I challenge you once again to truly put on the ring of commitment and not mearly “play house” with God. For he died to set us free that we would bear much fruit for His kingdom. Lord, today I ask that you not only renew our minds, but our whole beings. Draw us into a new level of love with you Father God and let us experience more of you. Let us always take our commitment to you seriously and blatantly show us what we need to do or not be doing so to always put you above all else in this world. We Love you Lord and we Thank you . Help us to become more like Jesus in everything we do and say; and let us truly Reflect The Son! Amen!!
