Realize / Deeper Christian life
We fall short and then kick ourselves. Even the disciples came up short at Gethsemane.
Then saith he unto them, My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me. And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt. And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour? Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak. (Matthew 26:38-41 KJV)
Even though they had failed, Jesus tells them in verse 46 “Rise, let us be going: behold, he is at hand that doth betray me.” (Matthew 26:46 KJV)
Let’s go or some may now say, “let’s roll”. We must not let our past failures dictate or corrupt our future actions for the work of God’s kingdom. First realize we must trust Him and His finished work, put down our failures and short comings and move on to the next thing God has for us.
Arise, let us go on to the next thing Jesus calls us to do… Let’s roll!
Get deeper into God’s word His presence by setting time apart for God. Andrew Murray said concerning the Heavenly life that the Christian worker must know who we are in Christ. We are hidden in Christ Jesus and we are one in Christ as He is one in the Father. The same life that Christ lives in the Father lives in us. If you want this intimate heavenly life to become real to you then set aside a “Secret daily quiet time and meditation to keep alive the spiritual life given to us after conversion and the regeneration of the Holy Spirit. We will die to self and life for, by, and in Christ; then we will enjoy walking with God and experience a life of holiness and love.”
Realize that there is a deeper walk with Jesus. Do not let the past rule you, but live a life of repentance and move on to the Heavenly lifestyle God calls for you. “Let’s roll” for the Kingdom of God.
