We, as believers, are afforded the unspeakable blessings of the Spirit of Christ. The Lord is intimately available to us as Father, Comforter, Encourager, Wisdom-Giver and Guide.
You see, as believers, we have an amazing Power Source for our lives. There is no need to bear our burdens alone because the Savior offers us gentle solace in Him. He wants us to place our burdens on Him so that He can minister to us as only He can.
Ephesians 4:22-24 is another wonderful passage that shows how the Lord offers us unspeakable rest in Him.
It reads: “that you put off, concerning your former conduct, the old man which grows corrupt according to the deceitful lusts, and be renewed in the spirit of your mind, and that you put on the new man which was created according to God, in true righteousness and holiness.” (NKJV).
Only in Christ do we find true righteousness and holiness wherein we can live victorious, amazing lives! He wants to renew us daily so that we leave behind our old nature and become Christlike in our lives.
Sadly, we all struggle with temptation. We all fail in our walk with Christ. We all get sidetracked in our quest to serve Him.
Nevertheless, our Lord continues to wondrously renew our spirits and our minds because He loves us and wants the best for us. Instead of condemning us, the Lord continues to offer sweet rest to us, despite ourselves.
Thank you so much for partnering with me as we endeavor together to answer the Lord’s call to take His message into our own back yards and across the globe. We continue to plant churches, train pastors and church planters, send out missionaries, communicate God’s love through our benevolence ministry Gleaning For The World, reach teens through our camping ministry TRO, send the message of Jesus across the airwaves and do much more because we want to make disciples.
