I’ve been challenged over the past few weeks about where my spiritual eyes are focused and where my treasure is. Strange thing you might say to be considering but is it really. You see, it’s so easy for us to get distracted because of the busy and hectic lives we live. Families, Careers, Holidays, Seasons of Sickness and this does not exclude those reading this meditation that are involved in “full time ministries”.
In the dark mornings there is always a sunrise you just have to wait for the clouds to pass. I tell you today that you are only moments from the break of dawn that you have been waiting for. You are closer that your natural senses are telling you and the defeated Satan wants you to believe.
How often do we weep over a lost and dying world? What about some individual, friend or loved one? Does it really bother us? I am afraid that we may only shed a few tears because we are not totally convinced that the world is really lost. We just do not see clearly the lostness of this world. Perhaps we do not understand the exceeding sinfulness of sin!
Namely, We Stand in Christ’s Victory (1 Corinthians 15:57).
Namely, We Dwell in Heavenly Places far above principalities and powers who are arrayed against us (Ephesians 2:6).
Namely, we journey knowing that we are more than conquers (Romans 8:37).
Thus, we understand that to be jealous or zealous are in fact the like Siamese twins expressing the same things. As always though, it’s all about the context. The context provides the road map of the different direction of these powerful feelings.
