“and I ask Him that with both feet planted firmly on love, you’ll be able to take in the extravagant dimensions of Christ’s love.
Reach out an experience the breadth! Test its height! Plumb the depths! Rise to the heights! Live full lives, full in the fullness of God.
God can do anything you know - far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams. He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us.”
—I couldn’t feel this word true more than I do today.
For us to be breathing today, that is grace.
I ask the God of our Master, the God of glory-to make you intelligent and discerning in knowing him personally, your eyes focused and clear, so that you can see exactly what it is he is calling you to do, grasp the immensity of this glorious way of life he has for Christians, oh, the utter extravagance of his work in us who trust Him. Eph. 1:17-19.
—knowing Him so personally, the calling He has on our lives is clear and obvious and that we’d have the ability to do just that, live according to His calling and the glorious way of life for those who trust in Him.
May what our Master Jesus Christ gives freely be deeply and personally yours.” Gal 6:18
—He so freely, so constantly, steadfast and willingly gives Himself to us. Simple and true, seek….and His presence is so available.
“Make a careful exploration of who you are and the work you have been given, and then sink yourself into that.
Don’t be too impressed with yourself. Don’t compare yourself with others.
Each of us must take responsibility for doing the creative best you can with your own life.”
Since this is the kind of life we’ve chosen, the life of the Spirit, let us make sure that we do not just hold it as an idea in our heads or a sentiment in our hearts, but work out it’s implications in every detail of our lives. That means we will not compare ourselves with each other as of one of us were better and another worse. We have far more interesting things to do with our lives. Each of us is an original.
