When Our Attitude Stinks

I love Jesus with all my heart! There has not been, nor will there ever be, anything or anyone who can alter this – why? He has changed my life forever

Jesus has given me so much to live for, as in, my husband, our daughter, and so much more, but most of all, Jesus gave me Holy Spirit, and He is something that I cherish daily

Holy Spirit has been walking with me, every day, for over thirteen years – even at times when I didn’t want Him near me, He loved me at my darkest and grumpiest times, He has guided me, shaped me, and created in me a faith that burns within

Friends, when we open our hearts to Jesus, life will never be the same. When we receive the Holy Spirit, He becomes the voice to which we live by.

Holy Spirit was sent to help us build our relationship with God, but to also help build our relationship with others. This after-all was Jesus’ two greatest commands

When I think about the story of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:25-37) – it should never have been told like this, but Jesus knew what we needed to hear

The world looks in at Christianity, and at best sees good people, but at worst, sees a cult, because for some we have become like the Priest, or Levite – minding our own business, or we’re just too busy saving the world to help the person in front of us

Our attitudes can stink towards the wounded people in this world, and I’m not talking about just physical wounds, but emotional, and spiritual ones too. Just like the Good Samaritan story, who are we:

The law expert who treated the wounded man as a topic for discussion?

The robbers who saw him as an object to exploit?

The priest who saw the man as a problem to avoid?

Or maybe, the Levite, as an object of curiosity?

Jesus says we are to be like the Samaritan and treat the wounded in love

Therefore, let’s show someone today that they are seen in this world…and that everyone matters to God.

Let’s pray for opportunities to be God’s light, just like someone did, at some point, in our lives

Faith is taking a step out into the unknown, becoming vulnerable, and trusting God wherever He takes us in our lifetime

So, my question today is:

When was your last faith step?

My hearts desire is for everyone to have an intimate relationship with Christ. To hear the voice of God and to experience His presence. Also, to help disciple others to discover their purpose within the body of Christ - through the power of the Holy Spirit.

My God-given dream is to break down barriers within life and the Church as a whole to strengthen and develop relationships within every denomination and bring unity - so that we will collectively raise up together and fulfil the Great Commission, within this lifetime.

I am living proof that no matter what your past was or whatever your life has become - God will use you to fulfil what He created you to do, when you step out in obedience and faith.
