11/08/16 Things That Are Passing Away
“I miss the time We used to share together. You have become so busy paying attention to the things that seem so urgent that you have forgotten what is really important. In doing so, you are making those things more important than Our relationship. That grieves My heart. You have been reborn to have intimate fellowship with Me. Your new life allows you to participate with the eternal things of My heart.
"Why do you continue to place your priority on things that are passing away? Why do you feel that you can exist without the fellowship in which I have created you to participate? Make Me your priority. Even short, intimate moments together will modify your world immensely. Come to Me now. It is what I have formed you to do.”
John 5:19-20 NIV
19) Jesus gave them this answer: “I tell you the truth, the Son can do nothing by himself; he can do only what he sees his Father doing, because whatever the Father does the Son also does.
20) For the Father loves the Son and shows him all he does…”
Romans 8:5 AMP
For those who are according to the flesh and are controlled by its unholy desires set their minds on and pursue those things which gratify the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit and are controlled by the desires of the Spirit set their minds on and seek those things which gratify the [Holy] Spirit.
Can you imagine the self-importance of taking for granted the opportunity of going into the presence of God? It took the bloodied body of Jesus Christ hanging on the cross to destroy the veil of separation between the Almighty, Living God and us. We are now invited to share things of importance heart to Heart. Sometimes we say, “No thanks.” Pretty scary, huh?
Break my prideful heart, Lord,
