So as I woke up today, I decided I would do something different with the blog today. Over the past three days I’ve come across three very important themes: Here I am Lord, Nothing can separate us from the love of Christ, and that we have an untainted and non corrupted inheritance in store when we get to heaven.
So I decided to write three short blogs into one, Starting with Here I am.
Here I am
Two days ago after a day of confusion of my future and what I felt like the Lord was telling me and where He was leading me, I awoke with peace and understanding and I came to the understanding of what He was really trying to show me the day before. He wanted me to understand that I am an empty vessel for God to use as He pleased, and that my prayer was now, “Here I am Lord, send me.” Whether it be in a mundane job, or in a big city, Lord send me, and use me. Your will be done. God knew all the confusion I was feeling and the tiredness I was experiencing from the stress of trying to find out where I was supposed to go next. And He knew exactly where I was going. And this song I came across the other day really, Holy Spirit come by Nate Sallie really put a stamp on what I really wanted to happen in my life. The chorus goes,
Holy Spirit come
Come and fill me with Your love
Move inside of me, fill the air I breathe
And holy Spirit come, fall on me.
And this is what I want for the Holy Spirit to completely take over my soul. To come everyday and fill me with love. For the Holy Spirit to move inside of me, to be so close that it would fill the air I breathe. So as I sit here today, my one and only prayer is “Holy Spirit Come.”
Nothing Can Separate us from the Love of Christ
On biblegateway.com this section of Scripture is titled, “The Believer’s Triumph,” which is just so cool and definitely descriptive of the life that Jesus Christ wants us to live. Romans 8:35 says,
“Who can separate us from the love of Christ?
Can affliction or anguish or persecution
or famine or nakedness or danger or sword?”
And this question is answered in Romans 8:37:
“No, in all these things we are more than victorious
through Him who loved us.
The apostle Paul goes on to even further to show that nothing can separate us from the love of Christ in Romans 8:38-39:
For I am persuaded that not even death or life,
angels or rulers,
things present or things to come, hostile powers, height or depth, or any other created thing
will have the power to separate us
from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord!
Paul explains that nothing, not even death or angels or rulers or things that will occur, or any created thing can separate us from Christ’s Love. Once we are in Christ’s hand, He will never leave us or forsake us. He will never abandon us, and nothing in this world or anywhere else can take us from His hand. And we can find peace in that now and forever.
Untainted, Non Corrupted Inheritance
Today in my reading I came across 1 Peter 1:3-9 that talks about our inheritance that we will receive upon our arrival into heaven.
“Praise the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. According to His great mercy, He has given us a new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead and into an inheritance that is imperishable, uncorrupted, and unfading, kept in heaven for you. “
(1 Peter 1:3-4)
In these verses, Peter explains how God has shown us great mercy, and that He has given us a new birth and a new living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ. But the most important part to me was that our inheritance is Imperishable, non corrupted and unfading. The Lord has our inheritance in heaven and He is protecting it for us. Our inheritance has not been given to anyone else, our inheritance can’t be taken away, nor can it be corrupted. Our inheritance will be filled with perfection and peace and love and joy and the Father’s overwhelming love, that on this earth we have only had a taste of God’s greatness and love and power. He in all His glory will be revealed on that day we go home to Him, to our real home. And He will bestow on us this imperishable, non corrupted, unfading inheritance that can only come from Him.
-Let me know what ya’ll thought of the new way I wrote this blog, to see if I should do some more blogs like this in the future. Hope ya’ll all have a Merry Christmas and remember the Lord Jesus Christ’s birth as the most important thing of all this season, and the greatest gift that could ever have been given, abundant life in Jesus Christ our Lord.
Hope you and all your families have a blessed Christmas,
