Discovering God's Glory One Day at a Time

The Paradox of Freedom

Morning Thought: The Bible is full of paradoxes, seeming contradictions that can only be understood by God’s Spirit. The wise and learned stumble over these stones, but children of God find their foundation in them. For example, you have been set free by Jesus Christ, but that freedom is for the purpose of serving one another. “I thought freedom was people serving me?” No! Freedom is serving others in love. How can you serve today? How can you take the burden of stress off another? “You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love” (‭‭Galatians‬ ‭5:13,‬ ‭NIV‬‬).

The Mysterious Man

Morning Thought: The cross of Jesus is the basis on which you receive God’s grace. Imagine you were a slave being sold to the highest bidder. The worst taskmaster in town was offering the highest price for you. Then a mysterious man shows up. He says, “Whatever the taskmaster offered, I will double it. More than that, I will give everything for that person.” The mysterious man wins, and then tells you, “I’m setting you free. Live a life of love and peace.” That mysterious man is Jesus and when he died on the cross, he gave everything to set you free from the slavery of sin and death. Walk free because he paid the highest price. “Christ redeemed us from the curse of the Law, having become a curse for us – for it is written, ‘Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree’” (Galatians‬ ‭3:13,‬ ‭NASB‬‬).

Dig Down Deep

Morning Thought: Dig down deep so that you last for decades, not just days. You begin digging by coming to Jesus. You go deeper by listening to him. Finally, you hit the bedrock when you obey him. Your life is built on Jesus not when you say, ‘Lord, Lord,’ but when you let him really be your Lord. “Everyone who comes to Me and hears My words and acts on them, I will show you whom he is like: he is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid a foundation on the rock; and when a flood occurred, the torrent burst against that house and could not shake it, because it had been well built” (‭‭Luke‬ ‭6:47-48,‬ ‭NASB‬‬).

Seeing Differently

Morning Thought: Did you know the Bible hardly ever talks about skin colour? It doesn’t divide the world into black and white. Instead, it distinguishes between the righteous and wicked. God also celebrates the nations, each ethnic family is precious to him. The Father sees the heart rather than appearances. Let’s start to see things like God rather than the world. Remember what the Lord said to Samuel? “Do not consider his appearance or his height…The LORD does not look at the things people look at. People look at the outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart” (‭‭1 Samuel‬ ‭16:7,‬ ‭NIV‬‬).

Imagine

Morning Thought: Imagine the Queen invited you to tea. Or, picture your favourite sports star wanted to hang out with you. I know I'd be excited; a little nervous, but enthusiastic. Now here's the thing: the Creator of the Universe wants to spend time with you. He's called you into his throne room. He desires to speak with you and he is far more important than the greatest men and women on earth. Why do people get bored with God? It's because their eyes fail to see and their ears don't hear. But you're different. Today, the King is calling. Listen to the Bridegroom in the Song of Songs: “My dove in the clefts of the rock, in the hiding places on the mountainside, show me your face, let me hear your voice; for your voice is sweet, and your face is lovely” (Song of Songs‬ ‭2:14‬, NIV‬‬).
