Much of our confusion in life comes from the lack of attention we give to the thoughts that pass through our mind directly from Jesus. If you will train yourself to daily notice and obey direct thoughts from Jesus, your life will become an amazing adventure.
God’s Spirit is called the Comforter because He imparts direct thoughts from the living Jesus to help and lead people from within. To be Spirit-led is to be guided and steered from the inside by direct thoughts and impressions from the risen Jesus.
Too often church attendance is seen as a substitute for being Spirit-led. However, just sitting thru church doesn’t earn a “Well done,” form God.
Thoughts from Jesus are much more common than we realize because we spend much of our time being distracted and we neglect to notice them. If you will pay attention to your thinking, you will notice that Jesus inspired thoughts often pass through your mind waiting for you to welcome and receive them.
Since Jesus is risen and ever-present, He puts His thoughts directly into your mind continually nudging you to align with Him. A thought that appears in your mind bringing hope or helpful insight is often a direct thought from Jesus.
Using religious entertainment and/or obligation to gather followers has trivialized Christianity. It discourages people from daily recognizing and following their direct inner thoughts from Jesus.
Direct thoughts from Jesus lovingly warn us when we are headed in the wrong direction. They gently call us to surrender our heart and will to His presence and control. When a direct thought from Jesus is noticed and nurtured it will burn in your heart and fill you with awe! Thoughts we hear in sermons are often sweet, but to notice and embrace direct thoughts from the living Jesus is life-changing!
Direct thoughts from Jesus are frequently ignored or rejected because they conflict with and challenge what we want. It’s important for Christians to learn to recognize and receive the thoughts that the risen Jesus puts in their mind so that they can walk in the Spirit.
Regularly reading the Bible with an open-heart trains people to recognize and receive thoughts from Jesus. Mary and Joseph treasured Jesus and let Him fill their heart with awe and wonder. O that we would do the same!
When people ignore or resist direct thoughts that Jesus puts into their mind, they trivialize Christianity. A Christian with a closed heart has trivialized Christianity.
Form without freedom, programs without power, preaching without passion, sermons without God’s Spirit, ritual without reality, liturgy without life, methodical meetings without supernatural mystery, Biblical analysis without the anointing, and hype instead of humility, are all signs of trivialized Christianity.
Neither trivialized Christianity nor paganism can produce inner peace in a human heart, but the risen Jesus can. Trivialized Christianity, superficial and artificial, distracts people from focusing on the risen Jesus and the thoughts that He deposits in our mind!
