A scripture has risen to the top as I’ve been seeking God about a REVOLUTION OF LIVING:
For the Kingdom of God is not just a lot of talk; it is living by God’s power. (1 Corinthians 4:20, NLT).
This sentence brings the substance to living a life that matters to the forefront. The words are a part of a letter that the Apostle Paul wrote to the Corinthians, who were struggling with what it meant to follow Christ and to be the Church. Arrogance had set in. The thing is, Paul’s words seem fairly arrogant without this sentence in the passage.
It’s worth studying and asking,
- “What does it mean for me to live in God’s power?”
- “How is it possible to live in God’s power?”
- “How would my life change, if I lived more in God’s power?”
- “Is it possible that the world would change, if those of us who belong in faith communities were more intentional about living in God’s power?”
One thing I know is that I’m changed when I focus on the power of Christ’s love, grace, joy, and peace. It allows me to sift and sort through the stuff of life, choosing to do only what matters.
Isn’t it true that when we change . . . so does the world?
Step into the REVOLUTION OF LIVING.
Ask the questions.
Seek and find what it means to live in God’s power.
