SPRING FORTH NOW - DAILY MEDITATION
Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:
The desire of our plea to Fill Our House is our willingness to be the visible presence of God in the world; ambassadors for Christ. As ambassadors for Christ, the epitome of sacrificial and unconditional love for humankind, is not an easy feat, to be honest, it is extremely difficult. The difficulty of loving and doing so sacrificially and unconditionally try our souls like nothing else; tests the proposition of Christ’s requirement to love ye one another as He has also loved you. The injustice to the life of Breonna Taylor is a real example of how one can be tried in our soul: sacrificially and unconditionally loving those who will do anything and go to any lengths to diminish and/or destroy our human dignity just because of our Blackness, a difficult space of loving. As one of my twitter followers so adequately defined where I am in difficult times of loving said, “Michelle Obama says when they go low, we go high, however, I am going to go medium because God is still working with me.” Thus, my plea is to the Lord, Fill My House, is not just about getting the things of life but also being equip to handle the things of life; giving me access, sensitivity, and know-with-all to use what I have to right the wrongs, often created, developed, and sustained by others. Righting the wrongs demands a mindset that is far beyond the natural but that of Christ Himself in which we can strategically and methodically, of sacrifice and unconditional love, overcome our situations and inherit all things, all power; righting the wrong and setting things in order for the flourishing of our house, being and space. The mind of Christ has been given to us by way of the Spirit of God and as we receive and embrace, Catch The Wind of God’s Spirit, we transform our mind, thought life in which we are directed in our actions, strategically and methodically, to overcoming and inheriting all things!
