The Way of Forgiveness – The Only Means for Heaven on Earth - Friday, August 30th
When you were dead in your transgressions and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He made you alive together with Him, having forgiven us all our transgressions, having canceled out the certificate of debt consisting of decrees against us, which was hostile to us; and He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross. Colossians 2:13-14
Therefore as you have received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, having been firmly rooted and now being built up in Him and established in your faith, just as you were instructed, and overflowing with gratitude. Colossians 2:6-7
Today's thoughts from today's verses:
Heaven on earth – it is all about surrender and dependence; it is all about confession and forgiveness; it is all about being transparent and current with God; it is all about walking in the kingdom as one who truly feels fresh and clean with a wonderful sense of spiritual vitality. God wants us to be a connecting point for Him to touch the earth with the wonders of heaven and He uses the open door of forgiveness and cleansing to bring it about. God is merciful and will give us the humility necessary for being able to surrender and depend on Him if we will only ask.
Today's prayer response from today's thoughts:
Lord, how amazing: I am an actual “connecting point” between heaven and earth. As the wonders of heaven flow into me through your forgiving and healing presence, may they flow back out of my transformed life to touch and bless the earth and the people here who desperately need the wonders of God’s heavenly love and forgiveness. What a privilege and thrill is for me to be a part of the answer to the prayer, “Your kingdom come, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.” Amen!
