You are the beloved of God. Created His child. Chosen His servant.
May the Lord guard your heart. May He guide your steps.
And may you find satisfaction in Him.
Our ministry is God’s Mission. He who brings order out of chaos, calls us to be a peacemakers. (Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called children of God.) God is with the Peacemakers! He calls us to heal and encourage and call people into His character (merciful, gracious, slow to become angry, abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness). And this is our character, too, right? That is what it means to be a Godly person. That is the work of our lives. That is what we are to be doing here on earth!
5 Let the same mind be in you that was in Christ Jesus, 6 who, though he was in the form of God, did not regard equality with God as something to be exploited, 7 but emptied himself, taking the form of a slave, being born in human likeness. And being found in human form, 8 he humbled himself andbecame obedient to the point of death— even death on a cross.
This is the call to the Way.
Have this mind in you. Have this attitude.
You are wonderfully blessed. God is with you and in you.
You are powerful. You are forgiven.
But it is not all for you. You cannot exploit the blessings for your self. That is not the Way. We give ourselves away. We give ourselves all the way away.
How can we complain or grumble if we have died?
We are the beloved of God.
