Jesus tells us He must go to the Father and will send us the Holy Spirit. Through this Holy Spirit we are to do what Jesus had been doing and even GREATER things. What? Jesus healed the leper, drove out demons, multiplied food, made wine out of water, even raised the dead. Jesus is not a liar. He would not say these words unless they were true for us.
I can not deny that I have a burning desire deep within me to be a part of these miraculous things, these Kingdom works. There is a longing for more within my heart. This longing must have been placed in me by my Maker. I have come to the conclusion that we were made for so much more. Will we believe it? Will we walk in it?
Chronicles of Narnia (movie quote):
Mr. Tumnus: [of Aslan] He’s not a tame lion.
Lucy Pevensie: No… but he’s good.
Our King is not tame, but He sure is good. He is not safe, but who wants to live safe anyway? A pastor shared his heart last night: “Everything in my life is safe. I am sick of living safe. Since when was the gospel safe? Look at the lives of the disciples, they weren’t living safe. This kind of life is not for the faint of heart, but for the crucified of heart.”
What does your heart ask of Him? What are you longing for, but afraid to ask. Do not fear. His perfect love drives out fear. I am curious to know your thoughts…have you pondered these things? Have you seen these things? Have you looked into these greater things Jesus spoke of almost 2,000 years ago? Does your heart long for His Kingdom to come?
“Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom.”
