Lead Me Home

Jesus, “Your heart is my desire”, Jesus.

Jesus, Your journey tests my faith, Jesus.

Jesus, You are my Shepherd, Jesus.

Jesus, I am your sheep, Jesus.

Jesus, You are my day, Jesus. You are my night.

Jesus, You’ve done this, Jesus. You’ve made my heart live. You’ve put in me Your own Spirit, Jesus.

Jesus.

Jesus, You love me.

You love me, Jesus.

Jesus, Oh Jesus. Jesus.

Lead me home.

Jesus, lead us home.

 

 

Obedience.

“To love is to do.”

This is a true saying. A very true saying indeed. I have desired greatly to love the Lord Jesus Christ with all my heart, all my mind, all my strength and all my soul…just as He commands us and reveals to us that this is the greatest command of all. Yes, this command has been my single most sought after desire — to love God.

And to love Him, He made it clear to me after I had neglected a work He gave me to complete, is to obey. Obey Him.

Hear

Hear what the Lord says. Hear with your heart. Hear with you mind. Hear with you ears. Hear with your eyes. Hear what God said and what He will say to you.

Believe

I have recently understood that the ‘great’ men of faith that I often hear about in regards to the scripture Hebrews 11, are not great at all. Truly it was and is God’s greatness that is so admirable and such a wonder and strength. These men were as we are this day, men. It was their faith, as the passage details, that worked. Truly they believed what God said, what God promised, what God declared. They Believed And what they did and did not do, proved it, (their faith – belief of what God spoke).

Believe what the Lord has said and what He will say to you. And after you have heard and believed, do.

Do

Doing is the part that measures your love. Not what you feel. Do whatever you have heard from God. Give to it life as He so leads and gives grace and power and strength to do.

Jesus said, if you love Him keep His commands. Jesus said blessed are they that hear the word of God and keep it.

The Spirit of Almighty God leads and instructs in the way that you should go and, He will guide you with His eye but, you must DO as you have HEARD.

Finish

Bring to a completion what you have heard and what you have set out to do by Christ, in Christ, for Christ. Determine in you heart and pray the God of heaven and earth be your help and your refuge, that indeed for His glory the task(s) in which He sets before you is completed just as He ordained it to be.

Finally,

Trust in the Lord with all your heart; and lean not unto your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.

Domain

Own. Reign. Rule. Lead. God’s kingdom is not over a piece of land or a territory that can be seen or touched.

God’s kingdom…

…the kingdom of God is with you.

Jesus, the Kingdom of God.


And when He was demanded of the Pharisees, when the kingdom of God should come, He answered them and said, The kingdom of God comes not with observation: Neither shall they say, Look here! or Look there! for, behold, the Kingdom of God is with you.

A Just God and a Saviour

The God of all creation is a just and righteous God. This means His verdict is a true and right verdict. His ruling stands and whatever He decides as a sentence is indeed justice. Likewise, this same God is a Saviour. Even saving His creation made in His likeness (like parents and children look-a-like) from His true and right judgement, which is a sentence of death for any sin committed against Him. Not death in the body alone but agonizingly death of our spirits. I can imagine the death of a body, we see it often but, that of your spirit, how horrifically sorrowful.

Here and Now:
His saving hand He reaches out long before His hand of justice. And it’s reaching out to you. Now. Grab hold of His offer of salvation from death of your spirit to life of your spirit by believing and coming to the understanding that Jesus is God and that He came into this world to do just that, taken your sentencing of death for your sins. Yet through His rising from the grave you rise too.

Saviour:
God is saving those who receive His Son Jesus Christ. Believe in your heart and confess with your mouth that He is God. Ultimately He is saving us from His own wrath, from the appointed day when He will deliver His verdict and then the sentence of that verdict, death death death. But now and first He offers a way to escape death and instead life life and life forever!

Choose:
“Look to Me, and be you saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else. I have sworn by Myself, the word is gone out of my mouth in righteousness, and shall not return, That unto me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear.”

– Isaiah 45:22-23

One day He is coming. Don’t wait for that day when you will believe because then it will be too late.

I pray you choose life. And choose now.
