1 Corinthians 15:1-4 “Now, brothers and sisters, I want to remind you of the gospel I preached to you, which you received and on which you have taken your stand. By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain.
For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures…”
Are you looking forward to these as much as we are? LET’S GO! How awesome to be receiving so much breakthrough in such a massive community of people from all across the world together! We love seeing the shares and testimonies pouring in!
Today our barrier is a very common one: pride.
What is most important in our lives? Pride can blind us to what really matters and make us think more highly than we ought. We lose focus on what is of first importance, which is the Gospel. Salvation is about surrender, letting go of our rights and trusting in Jesus to lead and guide our lives. Jesus calls us to humble ourselves and to put our trust in Him. It takes a lot of courage to humble yourself in that way and fully depend on Jesus, but the second we do, everything comes into alignment again.
God’s presence is like a river, it always flows at the lowest point. So, if you still find yourself looking for God, try going lower. You will find so much of God’s presence and power in the place of humility. Let’s remove pride from our lives and find freedom in the promises that God will hear. Forgive and heal! When this is of first importance in our lives we see how important it is to tell others. It will bring an urgency…
It’s time to rumble in prayer! This is not a time to hold back and be timid this is a time to pray your heart out. Ask God to show you all the areas where you have been walking in pride - it’s ok, He forgives you - because speaking it out to him in prayer brings so much freedom and alignment.
When you are walking in humility you are better at empathizing with others. Allow your humility to translate into empathy. Consider spending quality time with someone who needs it and make it your goal to focus on them.
