Insight-delight ignites joy. When you begin to rejoice in what God shows you, you’ll be happy. One moment of insight-delight is more powerful than many years of hearing sermons.
Too many Christians lack insight-delight. They haven’t personally received thrilling revelation from the living, resurrected Jesus.
Insight-delight will change your life! Open your heart in full surrender to the risen Jesus and you will discover insight-delight.
Totally unexpectedly I was filled with insight-delight. In an instant Jesus became real to me and He has thrilled me ever since. Insight-delight is the supernatural “aha” that ignites the human heart in continual celebration of the presence of Jesus.
E. Stanley Jones, a 20th century Methodist missionary to India, referred to: “the dimness, the faintness, the dullness, the uncertainty of modern churchmen.” As Christ-followers we need more than that! We need more than promises, potential, and possibilities presented as a Sunday morning menu — an “order of service” for us to be religiously walked and sung through. We need to dine together on the living Bread of Life — to taste and see that the Lord is good — to actively interact heart-to-heart with each other and with the risen Jesus Christ.
Ancient Greek cities had a town hall meeting called “the ekklesia” where anybody present could speak. Jesus said, “I will build My ekklesia.” (Matthew 16.) Jesus also said that His meat “is to do the will of the Father.” Let’s personally partake of God’s meat by meeting together to let the Spirit prompt each of us and show us what He wants us each to say and do while we are gathered. Then we can begin to experience His reality in and through each other as we live out 1 Corinthians 14:26.
Spirit-led God-gatherings are the most amazing Christian meetings I’ve ever experienced! I wish they weren’t so rare. Jesus wants His followers to meet together interactively with Him not just to passively sit through a religious service. Unfortunately, Christians have been trained to follow religious programs more than following the presence of the risen Jesus.
The words in the Bible are full of God’s Spirit. To receive them with an open heart is to experience their life-giving power. John 6:63. Many churches present the Bible as religious data to analyze and odd stories to learn about. For me it’s insight-delight! Let the Bible’s insight-delight excite you!
Jesus is the Light of the World. If the Light hasn’t come on inside you, you won’t have spiritual sight. Seekers of the Savior aren’t satisfied with Sunday services. They search out the Son of God.
Jesus is “the Bread of Life.” Bread needs to be partaken, not just talked about. Experience the risen Jesus every day. “Whoever belongs to God hears what God says.” John 8:47. Do you hear what God says?
Love can’t be programmed or systematized. It’s a heart matter. Same with worship. “The joy of the Lord is your strength.” Insight-delight matters!
Flows like inner rivers
When your heart sees
The presence of
The living Jesus.
To refuse to rely
On the living Jesus
Is to trust
Your own power
If you go to church
But aren’t “taught by God,”
You’ve missed the point.
