Let the living Jesus do His heart-work in you. Then you’ll begin to overflow with healing and joy.
When I’m comfortable I tend to trust my own effort; when I’m uncomfortable, Jesus. Being uncomfortable can make me defensive or make me grow, but not at the same time.
Truth is often uncomfortable and that can make it very hard to see. If you’re uncomfortable with ideas or people, maybe they have something to teach you.
Christ-followers today need the brokenness and humility of the Beatitudes. The risen Jesus doesn’t depend on a political party or on religious meetings. He works directly in the human heart. When people wanted to make Jesus king by force, He hid from their political plans.
Politics works by pride, coercion, manipulation, and force. Jesus uses love and humility. Obedience to the living Jesus will bring healing to your hurting heart. Without an ongoing heart connection with the living Jesus, Christianity is boring.
Politics got you down? Surrender your life to the living Jesus. He’s got the answer, but an in the sky, religious Jesus doesn’t seem to help much!
