Submitting to our Fathers Will
As Jesus walked the earth and proclaimed our Fathers heart/will He had many hard teaching. Words that cut to the bone, that leave no doubt what His intent is.
“and any one who does not take up his cross and follow where I lead is not worthy of me.”
Today the work of the cross is often misunderstood, yet just as the Living Word was active then, it’s just as true today as yesterday, and will be true tomorrow.
The cross is the means of bring to bear that which is true, just, honorable, and pure…Christ. With this in mind we must come to see not only the need, the beauty of this experience, and the precious fruit that this process yields.
Today we can clearly see a great need for the Living Word to be expressed, expressed in authenticity, passion, and Truth. This is the will of our Lord, and He watches over His Word to perform or accomplish this, and it is indeed being accomplished.
“And I— if I am lifted up from the earth—will draw all men to me.” ~ Jesus
Once again The Living Word is being made flesh and dwells among us, and once again it will yield the precious fruit of righteousness.
Our Father is seeking His sons, those vessels that are willing to submit to His discipline.
“Furthermore, we had earthly fathers to discipline us, and we respected them; shall we not much rather be subject to the Father of spirits, and live?” Hebrews 12:9
This living that the author of Hebrews mentioned is life in the Spirit, and this is exactly what our Father is seeking, sons who walk and speak in Spirit and Truth.
“You are our letter, written in our hearts, known and read by all men;
being manifested that you are a letter of Christ, cared for by us, written not with ink but with the Spirit of the living God, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of human hearts.
Such confidence we have through Christ toward God.
Not that we are adequate in ourselves to consider anything as coming from ourselves, but our adequacy is from God,
who also made us adequate as servants of a new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life. 2 Corinthians” 3:2~6
“You have given a banner to those who fear You, that it may be displayed because of the truth. Selah.”
~ Psalm 60:4
