Remain In Me
TAKE 2 minutes FOR TRAINING
There is a global tiredness; a global exhaustion. Trying hard, striving, trying to figure it out, praying less, loving less, and not as much fruit. More important than making Jesus know is to know Jesus intimately; to know Him for ourselves; to seek His face first. Not the mission and not what we wanted Him to do. He is drawing all of us to Himself our whole life. It’s not that He draws us initially and then uses us to draw people.
When we look at Jesus it’s ‘love’ and not ‘task’. Why is it in North America that we are ashamed to say that God has to do everything for us? He’s building a kingdom that’s not built with human hands. His strength is made perfect in weakness. He actually wants to change our hearts so that we seek the Father’s heart, not for what He’ll do for us, but for who He is. He doesn’t call us to love others out of a love deficit. He fills us with His love, helps us experience His love for ourselves, and then expects us to love others. So that someday people say of us ‘They loved Jesus. They love each other. And out of that love they love the world.’
It starts with humility. Humbling ourselves before the Lord and seeking His face.
