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.
We have a Sovereign God – Right? I trust we answer unequivocally yes to that. It’s a reality that God finds it unacceptable when fear is the dominating and determining emotion in our hearts and minds – Why? It shows a distrust in Him, His care, His Ability and His Sovereignty.
What? Is the question we need to ask ourselves does “Your kingdom come” mean for us today and in our on-going walk with Jesus.
