Tapping Into Our Core #ThyKingdomCome

Who are we really?

Do we know who we really are?

Tapping Into Our Core

We are born again, anew, born from above. We are not of this world. We are children, sons and daughters of the living God. Our new life and our new nature is God’s own within us. It is Spiritual, Life-Creating, and it is Holy.

“We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.” ~ Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

It’s All A Matter of Who We Really Are

We are not merely human beings, like the first Adam. We are life-giving spirits like the last Adam, in Christ.  We are born from above in the Spirit of God, as God’s seed within us. Picture, if you will, a burst of energy, light, eternally burning within us with absolute purity, making us one with God, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. It is spirit, the Spirit of God pulsating within us. The working out of this Spirit grows the very fruit of that Holy Spirit in the garden of our hearts, manifesting love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.

This is Christ life within and among us. We love each other in the same way as Jesus loved his disciples.

If you are waiting for heaven, God will ask you, “What did you do with the life I gave you?” Our mandate is, “Thy Kingdom Come.” We are Christ to the world. We bring heaven to earth where the rubber meets the road.

And what does this life look like? It looks like Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Gentleness, Faithfulness, Gentleness, and Self-Control. 

We are the salt of the earth. We are the light of the world.

We don’t bring doctrines, rules, forms, and shadows. We bring the very presence of God’s life. We show before we ever say a word. Love does. #ThyKingdomCome
