What is Jesus saying personally to me today – Carefully walk the path
Three short, simple, powerful, somewhat random sentences in the one passage that say so much. If I reflect on them collectively they say to me, carefully walk the path that Jesus has provided us. All the answers are contained in these three statements, be careful what you say and do, go along this path to where He is and don’t forget that we are all one in God by treating everyone as ourselves. What’s the one thing that I could take away from such a powerful bunch of messages?
Thank you for speaking to me Jesus
How do I respond to what Jesus is saying personally to me today?
There are so many things that I feel I need to do particularly around the “oneness” of us all and what I am in among that. I still struggle to fully experience the oneness message and continue to hold to to patterns, behaviours and language that doesn’t connect me to God in all of us. I have to own and apologise to two people, I have to personally call three other people and I need to write my list of people that I will pray for collectively each day. The message today for me is to continue to put myself in a position to be “oneness” not just think about it and let the Holy Spirit continue to teach me.
Take away my fear of being in unity in you through others.
Put in me a brave heart, a heart of love and action.
May I own my failures and seek the restoration of myself in you.
Guilt and shame are not what determines me.
Jesus said to his disciples: ‘Do not give dogs what is holy; and do not throw your pearls in front of pigs, or they may trample them and then turn on you and tear you to pieces.
‘So always treat others as you would like them to treat you; that is the meaning of the Law and the Prophets.
‘Enter by the narrow gate, since the road that leads to perdition is wide and spacious, and many take it; but it is a narrow gate and a hard road that leads to life, and only a few find it.’
