Awake, grace, Inspiration, light within

Christ set the record straight!🙏🏾🎉

“Now there are diversities of gifts, but the same Spirit. And there are differences of administrations, but the same Lord. And there are diversities of operations, but it is the same God which worketh all in all. …

For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ. For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit. For the body is not one member, but many. If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body? And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body? If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling? But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him. And if they were all one member, where were the body? But now are they many members, yet but one body. And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you. Nay, much more those members of the body, which seem to be more feeble, are necessary: And those members of the body, which we think to be less honourable, upon these we bestow more abundant honour; and our uncomely parts have more abundant comeliness. For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked: That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another. And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it. Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular” (I Corinthians 12:4–6, 12–27).

“For ye are all the children of God by faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise” (Galatians 3:26–29).

(2.) That this privilege of being the children of God, and of being by baptism devoted to Christ, is now enjoyed in common by all real Christians. The law indeed made a difference between Jew and Greek, giving the Jews on many accounts the pre-eminence: that also made a difference between bond and free, master and servant, and between male and female, the males being circumcised. But it is not so now; they all stand on the same level, and are all one in Christ Jesus; as the one is not accepted on the account of any national or personal advantages he may enjoy above the other, so neither is the other rejected for the want of them; but all who sincerely believe on Christ, of what nation, or sex, or condition, soever they be, are accepted of him, and become the children of God through faith in him.
From Matthew Henry commentary

Awake, Inspiration

Good News, a nonentity for some.

It is Interesting how we can empathize with an individual’s bad circumstances, though we can’t see it. However, when someone reports the good in their life, empathy seems to fade and replaced by doubt, as though the good never happened. They want worldly proof good exist. Their understanding has not advanced toward reality, where good is the norm. The eyes produce nothing, though, spiritual consciousness. Our thinking on Christ produces a good that (eye thinkers) may never see because of where they are in the transition away from the ephemeral evidence. Journey on! 🙏🏾🎉

Awake, Inspiration, trust in The Lord

Don’t trust easily?

Possibly, some sense of our true self seems foreign to us. In God, our thinking is the body of experience. The world thought would say separate entities are operating independently in your experience. Accepting this fallacy leaves you in a state of chaos. Does chaos have a place in your thinking? No! Though unguarded, it finds lodgement in our thinking, and says that his native origin is within us. The world should thought is short lived and shall fall away from our eternity. In Christ, our life experiences take on new dimensions, representing an eternal round. To be filled with God’s loving thoughts, we are sheilded from all else. Some will try and hide from their fruits. Today’s global turbulence is the fruit of malicious thinking. The key is for us is to keep our thought stayed on him, the word, the truth, and witness his power. Never look to the world to know where you are placed or who you are as God’s children. We are untouched by world circumstances, as promised in Psalms 91. In God, we are immune from the damaging thinking of this world. By his grace, we will still be left standing, at peace, in Christ, rejoicing evermore.🙏🏾🎉

“Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. Behold, all they that were incensed against thee shall be ashamed and confounded: they shall be as nothing; and they that strive with thee shall perish. Thou shalt seek them, and shalt not find them, even them that contended with thee: they that war against thee shall be as nothing, and as a thing of nought. For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, Fear not; I will help thee” Isaiah 41: 10-13.

Awake, calm, Inspiration, light within

The deep dive behind the circumstances.

We can’t keep blaming the “collapsed cake” and never question the ingredients or the process. The same can be said about us when it seems our life is collapsing, though we never challenge the thinking behind these circumstances. If this sounds like we, I recommend going to Christ and getting the real recipe for life everlasting and devoid of this world’s ups and downs. Always remember, you are a magnificent being, divinely made and appreciated by the receptive. Journey on! 🙏🏾❤️
