Oh, the blood of Jesus…

Oh, the blood of Jesus…

Today is the first Sunday of the month where many churches will partake of communion. We will be remembering what Jesus did at Calvary and remembering the sacrifice He made to die for the sins of the world.

The blood of Jesus is so powerful. It is so precious. It is the cleansing power of the believer. It has washed us clean, pure as snow. It has provided healing for our bodies and protection against all our enemies. It is the sign of the New Covenant. It is the connection to heaven that buys us into the holy family. We are connected to our Heavenly Father, to heaven and life eternal. The blood of Jesus is the symbol of everlasting love of a creator God to His family.

Today, if you have communion with your church family, don’t just eat the bread and drink the wine and move on. Eat, drink knowing that over 2000 years ago a man arrived on this earth to die for you. He died and paid a price that you could never pay. He transformed your future and made sure that mankind could return to his eternal purpose.

Jesus died for you and me. He died for the whole world. Let’s make sure we never take this for granted. Let’s share our faith with those around us. Let us never be ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus. It was paid for by the most precious of a price, the very life of a man.

The Fire.

I want the fire of God. I want to be consumed by His fire, His glory burning in my heart, His passion forming my thoughts and my actions.

The fire of God is missing from the church. The church has become dry and barren. If not dry, wet. A wet blanket in the midst of a world that is desperately crying out for something that works. Nothing is working in the world…

Jesus came to baptise His church with His Holy Ghost and FIRE! Jesus never wanted a lukewarm and useless body! He wants to manifest His presence. He wants us to carry His presence. He wants us to be burning ones. 

We are to have the Holy Ghost shut up in our very bones. The days of Elijah should be here. Our churches service should reflect a God that wants to move through His people and into the world. He wants His people to be effective and reaching the lost and dying ones.

Today, become that burning vessel. Become the answer to the world’s desperation. Live the Gospel. Share the Good News. Activate and use the power that lives on the inside of you.

How? Spend time with your Jesus. Let the Holy Ghost flow into your life. Be filled with Him. In your daily sing praises. Sing your heart out. Let the Spirit of God overflow you. He will light you up. Like a bonfire burn and never stop adding fuel! 

Ephesians 5:17-20
