It’s easy to mouth the words of an apology, to others or God, while feeling out possible loopholes that leave room for future indulgence. We’re spiritual Houdinis, contorting and twisting our way out of true repentance. We’re actors who specialize in scenes of contrition, whose apologetic masquerades are little more than roles we play to get off the hook.
Our weaknesses are opportunities for Christ’s power to be revealed through dependence and faith. By weaknesses, I mean the painful but morally neutral aspects of our humanity, many of which are part and parcel of God’s design for us in this age.
“Our society has really become porous. We shouldn’t allow such things to erode our culture,” the young woman concluded as the conversation died down. This last utterance, cut deep into my being. Until when would society allow certain customs and tradition to dehumanize people?
Think for a moment: how much more of Him do you want, when He lives in you in His fullness? You’re in the Father, and the Father is in you. Become fully conscious of this reality. Quit trying to reach out to Him or acting like a stranger and a foreigner; you’re one with Him. Hallelujah! The problem with many is their ignorance of the Word.
Money is a deception and a distraction in the world. Not many realise this, but it’s the truth. When God made this world, there was no such thing as money. Money was an evolution; the world didn’t start out with money. But today, we act like money “fell” from heaven and God said, “Thou must use money.” But it’s not so.
“Here’s another smart dude, I believe. By the way, you are welcome. Am Lindiwe,” she offered a hand, smiling her most sweetest smile. “Yeah, I heard about you. Thank God you aren’t a computer freak as someone I know.” She cast a glance my way.
Everything in life is waiting for your manifestation; waiting for you to liberate them. And when you do this, you’ll discover that in your life, you’re always new, always advancing; you see life working in everything around you. The supernatural becomes an everyday occurrence, because you’re manifesting eternal life. Hallelujah!
Then John brings the good news, which we read in our theme verse. 1 John 5:11 says, “And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.” You have eternal life now, meaning you’re in the ageless zone; you’ve passed from death to life. Whereas death works in the world, life works in you and everything that’s connected to you. Hallelujah!
