The power of invitation!
Greatest is Christ entering our lives and us entering His.
Revelation 3:20 Behold I stand at the door and knock!
… It’s open and available to us.
The Holy Spirit is with us and in us. He is all the time with us!
The wonder and miracle that Heaven holds for us! The Holy Spirit seeks to draw us to Him through knocking on our hearts.
God will use whatever it takes to draw us closer to Him.
John 10:9 I am the door and who ever opens to me … A rich green pasture.
… You we will be astounded.
Many of us are drowning in misguided valleys … Valleys of loneliness and despair.
Multitudes, multitudes in the valley of decision! For the day of the Lord is near in the valley of decision. (Joel 3:14 NIV)
“Under the surface, none of them feel like they belong!” The impression could be there that people look as though they have everything and belong. But if its not about Jesus Christ and belonging to Him, then we don’t belong! We get locked in e valleys!
The older we become the longer we been walking the road, the more we need to seek His face and walk closer through a strong desire and will to do His work.
There’s no formulae to Christ coming into our lives and inviting others in, but the truth of the greatest love story of all time, the love story of God sending His son, Jesus Christ to save each one of us!
Are we beginning to commend ourselves again? Or do we need, like some people, letters of recommendation to you or from you? You yourselves are our letter, written on our hearts, known and read by everyone. You show that you are a letter from Christ, the result of our ministry, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts. Such confidence we have through Christ before God. Not that we are competent in ourselves to claim anything for ourselves, but our competence comes from God. He has made us competent as ministers of a new covenant—not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life. (2 Corinthians 3:1-6 NIV)
Our Hope in Christ should be magnetic in a toxic world!
let us draw near to God with a sincere heart and with the full assurance that faith brings, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching. (Hebrews 10:22-25 NIV)
Inviting to come celebrate in the glorious celebration of the truth!
There is miracles everywhere and in everyone, we need to be aware of it and be willing to share it!
Jesus he knocks to come in and knocks to go out! To go to the mission – go and share Gods greatest!
