The Church is always preparing us to die and go to the sweet by and by. All that is well and good but what some of us need is the Church to show us how to live the abundant life in the nasty now and now! It is time to be the light in the darkness of the night! People need to see the light in us! Otherwise Jesus would have saved us and took us on to heaven when we were born again! You are here for a reason! Arise shine!

Decide in advance that you will do whatever it takes to get your heart right and then do it even if it will kill all previous versions of you. You need to ask yourself, what makes your heart beat in ways that make you stronger, more courageous, more giving and more loving? Figure out what makes your heart skip a beat with joy and what makes it miss a beat with dysfunction and distraction.

Oswald Chambers

I must learn that the purpose of my life belongs to God, not me. God is using me from His great personal perspective, and all He asks of me is that I trust Him. … When I stop telling God what I want, He can freely work His will in me without any hindrance. … Self-pity is of the devil, and if I wallow in it I cannot be used by God for His purpose in the world.

When the Holy Spirit blew through the Upper Room windows, there was a reversed Babel-effect. The hand of the Lord was no longer scattering and dividing men whose hearts were set against Him, but instead, gathering them for a new unified purpose. Where language once brought confusion and sounded of nonsense, it had now become a mighty tool to point men and women back to their Creator.
