I was texting one of my pastors, Brandon, earlier this evening and he said something really great. “Our battle is nothing of flesh of blood.”
Ah how true! None of our flesh means anything but our only battle is in fact one “we” can’t fight. Christmas won it! It is done FOREVER. All we have to do is accept Him into our lives, that He might carry out a Life in us in which we can expect goodness that is new and real each day. For while Heaven comes from Jesus, He calls us that His will may be done in earth as it is in heaven. Here is to praying that His will be done in my heart, my relationships, my family life, my education, my spirit. For Christ is the only way.
“Motivated to prayer by the Spirit alone.” I talked about it last week. His love poured OUT for us so that we might live in the fullness of His Grace. So that His face is all I want to see; His Son is all I want to be like; His Spirit is all I want to breathe. He is Risen indeed, FOREVER.
