SPONTANEOUS LOVE

Love suffers long and is kind….

1 Corinthians 13:4

If we try to prove to God how much we love Him, it is a sure sign that we really don’t love Him.  The evidence of our love for Him is the absolute spontaneity of our love, which flows naturally from His nature within us.  The life of God exhibits itself in this spontaneous way because the fountains of His love are in the Holy Spirit.

GRACIOUS UNCERTAINTY

…it has not yet been revealed what we shall be….

1 John 3:2

Certainty is the mark of the commonsense life – gracious uncertainty is the mark of the spiritual life.  Leave everything to Him and it will be gloriously and graciously uncertain how He will come in – but you can be certain that he will come.  Remain faithful to Him.

WHAT YOU WILL GET

I will give your life to  you as a prize in all places, wherever you go.

Jeremiah 45:5

Are you prepared to let God take you into total oneness with Himself, paying no more attention to what you call the great things of life?  Are you prepared to surrender totally and let go?  Once you do get to the point of total surrender to Him, you will be the most surprised and delighted person on earth.  God will have you absolutely, without any limitations, and He will have given you your life.

WHAT DO YOU WANT?

Do you seek great things for yourself?

Jeremiah 45:5

Ask God for what you want and do not be concerned about asking for the wrong thing, because as you draw ever closer to Him, you will cease asking for things altogether.  “Your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him” (Matthew 6:8).  Then why should you ask?  So that you may get to know him.

THE SUPREME CLIMB

Take now your son…and offer him…as a burnt offering on one of the mountains….

Genesis 22:2

If you will remain true to God, God will lead you directly through every barrier and right into the inner chamber of the knowledge of Himself.  But you must always be willing to come to the point of giving up your own convictions and traditional beliefs.

THE WARNING AGAINST DESIRING SPIRITUAL SUCCESS

Do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you….

Luke 10:20

As Christian workers, worldliness is not the trap which most endangers us; nor is it sin.  The trap we fall into is extravagantly desiring spiritual success.  Never seek after anything other than approval of God.
