Marinate in Jesus
Until He saturates,
You from within!
Live in you
And flow through
All you say
When your heart
You’ll be aligned
with His will.
Unless we let Jesus grasp, captivate, and take control of our heart, we’re only playing with Christianity. The brighter we let Jesus shine forth in our heart, the more self fades from our view. Jesus doesn’t come into a human heart to be passive, but to express Himself as the loving, inner King, Lord, and Master!
Jesus was the best counselor and communicator who ever lived. Now He offers to counsel and communicate with you through God’s Spirit. However, it’s hard to hear Jesus if we don’t believe that He speaks and we’re unwilling to be quiet and listen.
Life-changing power is released when Christians begin to obey the inner nudgings and promptings that come from Jesus. Begin to listen to and obey Him!
Christ-followers are called to live contrary to the values of their world, not to align with them. When Christians live a different lifestyle than the society around them, they don’t need to be trained to do evangelism. It happens spontaneously.
Water baptism is good, but Christians need much more than that. They need to be continually immersed in and saturated with the presence of the living Jesus.
Whatever fills a human heart seeps out for all to see. A person’s actions and attitudes eventually reveal what’s inside them.
Churches don’t have a shortage of programs, but they often seem to have a shortage of life-changing power. Church programs tend to produce passivity. They seldom seem to produce a heart that’s openly passionate about Jesus.
