Repent! The Kingdom of God is Within You

 

 

 

 

 

In this Corona Virus pandemic, I have been seeing a lot of online calls and challenges to repent.

Yes, repent!

Change the way you think until “righteousness, peace, and joy” are your reality; until the confidence of “on earth as it is in heaven” is your perspective; until you sense the arms of your kind and loving Father enveloping you and you grow sure in His nature to work all things to our good.

Repent!

Begin to think as He thinks, see as He sees, hear as He hears, give as He gives… live sure in His love today.

Repenting is not an act of desperation, it’s not about begging or groveling for some reprieve or stay of execution from a judgmental God who is angry with us. He is not angry. He is in a good mood! His love is still the answer, is still measureless and true. He is still the God who feeds 5000 plus people with 5 loaves and 2 fish. He is still a Relentless Redeemer!

So repent!

Step away from desperation and live in His reality of more than enough today!

Repenting is not about feeling ashamed or condemned. Repenting is the agreement with what Jesus did at the cross. It is the agreement with His value for us. It is our conscience awakening to our true identity, it’s our agreement with our restored nature!

Repent!

Live confident in your proclivity to be generous, and kind, and full of life, and hope; then love people with boldness today!

Repenting isn’t an act of fear by a guilty person. It is agreement with Love by a redeemed person. And it casts out fear.

So repent!

Live redeemed and fearless today! And love, love, love!

Repenting isn’t a heavy burden, a 24-hour wailing session focused on our brokenness, and poverty, and need, and sin. Repenting is a 2 min, 4 min, 24 min, 24 hours, 240 days and on and on revelation and agreement of our Father’s perspective in which we lay our burdens down, we exchange brokenness for righteousness, poverty for hope, peace, and joy; and sin for wholeness.

Repenting is the gift Jesus gave us to live confident as sons and daughters in His love on earth as it is in heaven.

So yes, repent! Grow sure in His affection and live confident in His love today!

    Well spoken. Recently I discovered that fuge is a word meaning to put to flight. Refuge finding recourse in our trials. A safe place with our Father. So simple. Run to Him. Not away. He is always desiring us.

      Yes! When you understand that goodness and love will follow you all the days of your life then when you’re in the shadow of the valley you sit and eat! (see Psalm 23) He is ALWAYS desiring us!!

      Thanks for sharing.

All God’s Stories Have Good Endings

David experienced the valley but the valley was never God’s heart for him. Jesus went to a cross. But the cross was never His focus. Death is never the focus with God, He is always and only about resurrection. Jesus said He came to give us life and life more abundantly (John 10:10). Jesus—the Father revealed—was focused on the joy of resurrection life.

And John, the guy who knew intimately what Love looked like, and talked like, and acted like, goes on to write about himself as “the one Jesus loved.”

Next to the toilet was a large barrel filled with clean-ish water. Floating in the water was a big plastic cup. The cup was for both flushing and bathing. Oh, I forgot to note, the toilet room was also the shower.

Remember how they were joined by a host of raging superhero death angels shouting “Glory in the highest,” and “On earth, as it is in heaven!” while they committed acts of retributive justice that would make Quinton Tarantino blush.

Well Done, Tire

We are designed to live a life of risk and trust, to do valiant acts of faith, to live out our radical acts of surrender, to leave it “all out on the field,” all for the glory of our King, so that when we get to heaven we will experience in those 3 beautiful seconds, those 6 stunning words. We are all living for the, “Well done.”
