Not in life for business

photo-12

Gracious and Holy One, come into our lives and minds today.   Let us return to Your truth. Remind us, that even in the ordinary moments of life, that we are surrounded by God’s extraordinary presence.

Don’t let us just return to business as usual, but instead lead us into the new possibilities of God’s amazing grace. Do not let us do good works simply to earn Your favor or the favor of others, because we’re not in this life for business. We are in this life to be among the living, and because of Your Son we can truly live as children of God.

You laid down Your life for this mess of a world because “in our desire to control love, we lost our way” (Jeff Hood). But love found us and continues to guide us.   Each time we mess up and fall, the cross reminds us that the Holy Spirit lives and dwells within all of us, and that we are never ever alone.

Love has been spoken

Love

Creator God, we meet You at this point in our life because we want a connection with the truth.   Flood our minds with the wisdom to stop thinking as the world does. Challenge us to apply Your Word in every aspect of our lives.   Don’t let us look elsewhere for recognition, love or value for “the mind and the heart will be restless until we rest in the arms of God…and God is the totality of Love” (Rev. Jeff Hood), so we don’t need to fear life’s challenges but instead trust in the One who is the source of our strength and our hope.

Love has been spoken loudly, clearly and definitively the through the life, death and resurrection of God’s only Son. It is through Jesus that we are transformed from sinner to saint and receive the gift of eternal life. It is His Love that surrounds us. It is His Love that will sustain us. And it is His Love that will deliver us evil.

Lord Jesus, thank You for this life.  This journey that started at the foot of the cross: the place where darkness lost to the light of God’s amazing love. You gave us more than just words on a page, You gave us a new life. You gave us hope. You gave us love. And because You live, we will live in the Love of God forever and ever.

“Nothing is permanent in this world, not even our troubles” (Charlie Chaplin), so we need to stop looking at our problems and start looking at our God because in Christ there are no good byes and in Christ there is no end. Because of His sacrifice on the cross, we are free from sin and death. The battle is won. God is with us…always. Christ is risen, He is risen indeed. Hallelujah!!
