How do we decide the task of the day? Who’s in charge of our calendar? When do we know our work day ends or when / where our real life begins?
If we seek, ask and knock does our Father not answer? Has He not provided us with the Holy Spirit and His only Son, Jesus Christ, to help us move easily through the task of our day? If we turn to the Father for direction and directions wouldn’t that determine what task make up our agenda?
“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.~Matthew 7:7-8 NKJV
As we begin to transform into a new creature, baptized in the Holy Spirit, our calendar should change and become more reflective of the task at hand – following Jesus Christ, spreading the Gospel and being a full reflection of God our Father. If we believe who He says He is and will do what He says He will do we should easily fall into His arms. Right? But we don’t.
Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent? If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him! Therefore, whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets. ~Matthew 7:9-12 NKJV
When we love God with all our heart, all our mind and all our strength does that not mark the beginning of our real life, our True identity in Christ Jesus? From that moment forward our lives should not be our own, our lives should be that of the Father. We should be nothing more than a reflection of the Way, the Truth and the Life.
Either the Gospel is divine inspiration, the Word of God teaching us how to live and how to be a reflection of Him, or it’s nothing more than a historical account of events.
