Moved by compassion

Jesus was moved

Jesus called his disciples to him and said, “I have compassion for these people; they have already been with me three days and have nothing to eat. I do not want to send them away hungry, or they may collapse on the way. Matthew 15:32

I am so blessed to see how compassion can move God!

This morning, I was praying in the Spirit but also with my understanding. I was asking the Lord to help me to hear from Him clearer.

A few minutes later, as I was still praying in the spirit, some scriptures came to my understanding.

One of them was: But whoever is united with the Lord is one with him in spirit.” 1 Corinthians 6:17.

Another one was: “for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.” Philippians 2:13. Continue reading “Moved by compassion”

At the altar

Sacrifice for Him

Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will. Romans 12:1-2

The purpose of sacrifices in the old testament was to purify. Make the unclean become clean. Jesus’ sacrifice took our sins away from us so we can come to God, receive forgiveness and be purified.

Paul was urging the Romans to offer their body as a living sacrifice. Bringing their bodies to the altar.

What does this mean ? Continue reading “At the altar”

He is waiting

We are his bride

For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh. This is a profound mystery—but I am talking about Christ and the church. Ephesians 5:31-32

Praise the Lord!

2000 years ago, Christ left his Father in heaven to come to the earth for his bride (mankind). But his bride was a slave. The only way he could redeem her was with his own blood. And he did it because he loved his bride so much.

After paying the price, Christ ascended in heaven in a new glorified body. His bride is still on earth but she is free.

Free to get ready to be united with Christ.
Free to keep her eyes focus on her husband.
Free to fellowship with Christ.
Free to follow his instructions.
Free to give herself entirely to him.
Free to trust him.
Free to let herself being comforted by him. Continue reading “He is waiting”
