What's In Us
I taught a seminar this week about the power within us and it surprised me how many people were stunned at the thought that there was a supernatural power and energy inside us connecting us to eternity. The people wanted to know how this worked and I explained Jesus is the way to God. Jesus? they asked. "--But isn't that narrow minded of God?" I explained that God made it easy for us to grasp His loving plan for us since Jesus Christ is the only one to fulfill all the Older Testament prophecies about a Messiah to come, to die and be raised from the dead in three days, walk the earth , raise the dead, heal the sick, and send us His spirit to live in us ... I gave a very basic biblical reasoning. I absolutely love to talk to people about God-- but sometimes, guess what. Sometimes I meet up with hearts like ice-- they just cannot be penetrated. I've kissed dead saints in their coffins goodbye, and I tell you, talking with these living souls with deadened hearts is like the kiss of the coldness of death. I praise the Lord for those whose hearts open like sunshine to the glorious presence and power of God, in our Savior Jesus, but I grieve for those who wait at the sidelines in their dark tombs of doubt.
