I wanted to offer a word of encouragement to each of you today, as we run in this race towards the true goal of our journey together – our spiritual maturity and perfection in Christ.
Allow me to encourage you to each run to win -- to finish this race well as the Apostle, Paul, would say. Let’s run to fully achieve the purposes of God’s Will, for each of us, in this season of our lives.
Let’s run with the callings and giftings He has uniquely placed into our lives and let us each stand fast in our respective places of service to the Body of Christ.
Let us look beyond, the discouragements of today's local media blitz and commentators with their vain philosophies and so-called “politically correct” ideologies.
Let us look to the LORD, with spiritual eyes, listen, with hearing ears, and in this moment, faithfully remember to behold the glory of the promised home He is preparing for His Church.
Allow the Holy Spirit to develop your character. Allow Him to direct your conduct that you may be whole and spiritually mature.
Let us be fully known as His beloved children -- reborn, adopted and fully transformed into His likeness and image.
May we each continue to boldly and freely put on the garments of our salvation and remain fully robed in His Righteousness.
May we continue to ready and prepare ourselves to be rightly fitted for our future, bridal garments. Let these be adorned with gold, silver and precious stones – the tested and righteous deeds of all the saints.
Let our faithful choices, and our willingness to partake of the leading, and works of the Holy Spirit be demonstrated within and throughout our lives.
Let God’s unique, “Agape”(Love), Wisdom and Power freely flow through each of us. Let these flow through cleansed vessels, and may His abiding Presence be freely be poured out into the lives of others.
Let us always remember Who our LORD really is and how He ever lives to intercede for us.
Let us exalt and bear true witness to His Name. For we are indeed, called to be His ambassadors!
Let us boldly proclaim what He has done, and what He is now doing, to bring forth such great fruitfulness and adorned beauty from every nation of the earth.
Let us be ever mindful of the price He paid to restore the precious and redeemed lives of those He foreordained, chose and destined to glorify His Name.
Let us, in true humility, and loving obedience -- "toast" Him with our praises and offer to Him, alone, the sacrificial prayers of our thanksgiving.
Let us each remember -- we are but the branches, He -- the True Vine. Let our faithfulness and obedience bring forth great fruitfulness for His Coming Kingdom.
Let us remember, He is our Eternal Bridge -- providing and fulfilling all the covenant promises spoken from Heaven into the lives of "hearing" men, who have chosen to responsive to His grace upon this earth.
Let us daily remember -- it is His shed Blood -- that today, and forever, speaks forth, from the Heavenly Throne of the Almighty.
Please continue to pray for one another!
Most of all – lets pray and purpose in our hearts to finish well! Let me know if anyone needs prayer!
Blessings to everyone!
in His love ...
