That don’t stream
Conflict streams chaos and pain. Peace making streams reconciliation and healing. Be a peacemaker.
Pentecost demonstrates that Christianity began with people livestreaming God’s Spirit, not with people being passively downloaded with religious lectures. When people spontaneously move with Jesus–rejoicing, smiling, praying, crying, laughing, singing, testifying, encouraging, exhorting, worshipping, serving–they’re livestreaming His presence.
When you let the risen Jesus freely livestream thru your consciousness, the fruit of the Spirit comes rushing forth. The love and power that flows from Christ never runs dry, but we can ignore it and/or walk away from it.
To start streaming Jesus,
Let God’s Spirit speak
And through you.
Then say what He says.
One day Jesus
Into my heart
With ongoing awe
That’s never dried up!
“Your best life” isn’t good enough. If it was you wouldn’t need for God’s grace to stream in your life. When there’s a lack of the fruit of the Spirit, the Holy Spirit isn’t streaming.
Christians have embraced streaming technology but ignored “streaming theology”–letting the risen Jesus freely stream forth in their heart. No matter how inspired a sermon, lectures about Jesus are nothing like personally streaming His presence.
Love listens with compassion, not necessarily with approval. Unconditional love doesn’t mean unconditional approval. Stream God’s love.
When Christ-followers focus on and proclaim the living Jesus Christ, livestreaming His wisdom (Christ’s supernatural revelation and resurrection power), we can tip a small domino in people’s heart that begins the “glory to glory” process of spiritual growth and maturity. Christ wants to powerfully work in people so that they can be inspired to daily strive to release and use His inner energy to tip over the rebellion and darkness that is hindering maturity in themselves and other people.
