Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ.
~ 1 Corinthians 11:1
I have attempted 3 times to write this blog post to no avail and then BAM…in my quiet time this morning God showed me why.
YOU were meant to write this blog post, not me, dear sisters! In today’s reading, Chan gave us 3 stunning examples of people on this earth who truly embody this life that God commands us to live—crazy in love and obsessed with Him. It’s not just about adoration, my friends, it’s about walking your love out in your life in every way possible…no matter what the costs.
We met Nathan Barlow, Simpson Rebbavarapu and Jamie Lang today. The rest of this week, you will continue to meet others like them. I pray they all have a huge impact on YOUR story!
How will you write today’s blog post? Well, I think it’s safe to say that most of us are not yet living up to the character God intends us to have to land ourselves as one of the names in this chapter. Please do not let that discourage you! What I would like you to do TODAY is to write out YOU as one of these people…. Write out your future, changed to be living out this divine life God intends. Write your story how it WILL be. CLAIM it here today with all of us as witness!!!! May God get all the glory!
Revelation 3:1, 2
…you have a reputation of being alive, but you are dead. Wake up!
Strengthen what remains and is about to die,
for I have found your deeds unfinished in the sight of my God.
Yet you have a few people in Sardis who have not soiled their clothes.
They will walk with me, dressed in white,for they are worthy.
The one who is victorious will, like them, be dressed in white.
I will never blot out the name of that person from the book of life,
but will acknowledge that name before my Father and his angels.
This is my song for us today:
God, give us strength and courage to go against this world and live the life YOU have so divinely created us for. Speak into our spirits today as we write our story of who we are to be—how we are going to take our crazy, obsessed love for You and walk that out in our lives to further Your Kingdom. Thank You for this provision, Father. Help us to hold each other accountable and spur each other on to be our very best. May You get all the glory! Amen <3
Write YOUR story today. If you feel led, post it as a comment below. If not, keep it in your Bible and pray over it daily. Claim this victory for God’s Kingdom as you begin to walk this new, narrow path for Him.
