Life & Light

The Bible tells us to walk in the light as he is in the light. As we walk in the light as Jesus is in the light, then we will be surrounded by light. We will be filled with the light of Jesus Christ; and therefore, we will live in the overflow.

This is normal Christianity. God calls us to be more than we are. He calls us be more than we can be. He calls us to be like his son Jesus. He calls us to be filled with the power and glory of God and to live in the overflow.

How can we do this, if we can’t do it? Jesus said it plainly, For man this is impossible, for God this is possible.

We have to have God’s help. It is only in Christ and through Christ we can accomplish what God wants us to accomplish in our lives. We receive the life of God. And then we live a life by seeking to lose our own life and to find life in him.

Jesus said the person who seeks to save their life will lose it, and the person who seeks to lose their life for my sake and the gospel will find it.

It is not just in losing your life. It is in losing it for Jesus sake. It is in losing it for the gospel’s sake. Otherwise, we should just eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow we die. Without Jesus nothing makes sense. With Jesus everything makes sense.
