Good Morning Manna: For the one who sows to his own flesh will from the flesh reap corruption, but the one who sows to the Spirit will from the Spirit reap eternal life. Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary. So then, while we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, and especially to those who are of the household of the faith. Galatians 6:8-9
Easter Say-So: Selfless Sowing! Jesus did not have an impulsive, self-centered nature, if He did, there would never have been an Easter morning to celebrate our redemption! If Jesus put Himself first, He would never have endured or stayed on mission with the will of God. I am growing through this principle of faith that speaks so loudly from this Morning God Manna, about sowing good things, selflessly so, habitually so! How about you? I am constantly fighting an independent-impulsive human nature. I want to selfishly make my own way. I want to make things right for me, according to my comfort zone. I want to have the final say and these are all finite things that can only reap temporary goodness or badness. But in this season of life, remembering the scriptures, and reading of this Easter Breakfast Manna, speaks to my heart and changes me in so many ways! Jesus burned so brightly through His trials, He glowed the glory of God, selflessly so. Jesus, You were a true selfless-servant, make me one too.
“We Were Made For This, To Glow God’s Glory! We Were Created By A God Whose Selflessness Sacrificed His Own Son For Our Redemption. So Don’t Grow Weary, Don’t Give Up, Endure And Burn Bright, Glow His Glory! You Were Made To Shine God’s Light!” KimberlyMac
Easter Say-So: It Is Not Relative! Jesus was definitely not one to follow His human feelings and do what felt good instead of what was right for that moment. Life is not all relative, we must continue to follow after the principles, precepts and ways of God. Revelation does not come out of impulsively chasing after cultural relativity. True life is not all relative. Easter says so! Who would have thought that Jesus would have died on a cross, brutalized by our human condition? Is that relative? God’s ways are not our ways. God’s ways are not relative to feelings or wants. God’s ways are creative, unique and new. Easter morning was God’s Say So! God is the ONE Who reveals all things, He is our revelation. Those who live relatively according to their feelings of the moment, will never experience God’s incredible life revelations. When we are held in bondage to all things relative, we will miss the Easter Say So. We can experience the WHO of the Father God through the life of His Son, Jesus, Who revealed Him to us and we can experience the heart of the Father God through the resurrection of His Son. Life is not relative, it is vital-vertical relationship with Jesus Christ.
“Easter Say So! How did Jesus love us? His Love Endured! He loved us sacrificially in a beautiful, unconditional kind of way. Jesus died for us without any condition at all, He died for us while we were still sinners! He did not grow weary of our human condition, instead He gave up the Whole of His life, loving us even though it hurt incredibly to do so. His love is a holy-wholly kind of sacrificial love. It is this Love of Jesus we need to cling to in a vital vertical relationship with Him.” KimberlyMac
Easter Say So: Lose Your Life – Cling To God! Jesus Christ Is The Life-Giver! Jesus died to His human nature and fully faced His Father God, gaining great strength from His Relationship with God. The things we think up and do in our own strength, do not have an eternal edge to them. We can kindle our own fire and walk by the light of this man made fire, but it is a light that cannot glow forever, it will flame out, the embers of it will grow cold, and all that will be left is dust that scatters in the wind. Jesus, the King of heaven, grew weary, very weary, yet in the Garden of Gethsemane where the stress of what was ahead caused Jesus to sweat drops of blood, He clung to His Father God in agonizing prayer. He got up from his knees, strong in God’s Will and determined to stay the course. How? He got that resolve from spending time working out His salvation plan with the Father God and in the midst of His greatest challenge as God in the flesh, He stayed the course. Jesus, lost His life, clinging to God and He gained eternal life for everyone! He is a Light that will never flame out. God’s Glory Still Glows!
“In the moments before Jesus’ death, He really knows what it feels like to be human and afraid. Jesus knows exactly what is about to happen to Him and exactly how bad it will be. Now that the time has come, He feels all the natural human emotions. Most amazing of all is the prayer Jesus says in that moment: “Please take this cup away so I don’t have to drink from it.” Even though He divinely knows what is going to happen—what must happen—He still asks for a reprieve. At the same time, He submits His human desires and will to the plan of His Father: in order to experience fully what it means to be human, He has to go through even this—denying Himself and what He wants—to face certain torture and death.” The Voice Commentary
Easter Say So: Lean Into God’s Sovereign Sway! Jesus leaned into God’s Sovereign Sway and found the strength He needed to usher in Easter and leave an eternal mark on mankind that can never be erased. Are you weary in well doing? We have a Savior, Who understands that. The best thing we can do in this moment is to lean into God’s Sovereign Sway and continue being God’s and doing the things we are led to do by His Holy Spirit in us, this is how we reap the eternal and make an eternal mark in our life path that stays forever alight in the glory of God’s Glow. Jesus won the war of good and evil as He gave His life for us and became the Lamb of God, sacrificed for our sins. The greatest goodness ever was crucified, died and rose again, very, very victorious! The goodness of God is powerful and can never be held down or stomped out. Don’t let your weariness of doing good take you out of position with the will of God which is steeped in His grace and goodness. Stay the course! Jesus found that the Father God was enough, all He needed to stay on mission. Easter Say So!
Easter Say So: God’s Purposes Are In Play! Jesus was born with a singular God purpose of redeeming us, reconciling us to the Father God. Throughout Jesus’ life on earth, there was not a moment that God’s purpose was not in play towards the endgame of our salvation. This is why we can continue to do good, no matter how weary our inner heart is, because God’s good purposes are in play as our followship of Him stays the course. Eventually the endgame of His goodness will come into the LIGHT as a strong Glory Glow that changes everything in its path from darkness to a forever light. When everything within you says quit, look up and see the empty cross and cling to Jesus, continuing to fight the good fight of faith. Jesus taught us the power of dying to self and how to live is gain and to die is gain. We have nothing to lose, we already have won everything. In light of this Easter revelation, we should lay everything we have out on God’s Harvest field in this world, so others can gain Jesus and know eternal life.
“To be in Christ is the source of the Christian’s life; to be like Christ is the sum of His excellence; to be with Christ is the fullness of His joy.” Author ~ Charles Hodge
Easter Say So: Challenged? Let Go – Let God! Jesus, even though He was the King of Heaven, let go of His Kingly rights and meekly, with His power under control, submitted to the will of God, to the point of enduring horrific human suffering. He grew weary, yes, He suffered greatly, yes, but He did not give up. Jesus stayed on mission, letting the purposes of God play out in the great challenges He faced as an Incarnate God, God in human flesh. Yes, we face incredible challenges in times such as these, BUT the purposes of God are greater in the challenges we face, much, much greater than the challenge itself. Every great challenge has an intentional God purpose in play through us. Just as Jesus’ life had a great challenge to face, He chose to play out the purposes of God in that challenge, even unto death, and then the fullness of the purpose of God was revealed in a very powerfully, good for us endgame, called Eternal Life!
“If then you have been raised with Christ to a new life, thus sharing His resurrection from the dead, aim at and seek the rich, eternal treasures that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. And set your minds and keep them set on what is above, the higher things, not on the things that are on the earth. For as far as this world is concerned, you have died, and your new, real life is hidden with Christ in God.” Colossians 3:1-3 Amplified Bible
Easter Say So: Endure – Conquer – Finish! It is The Father God’s hope that I would endure and “grow through” my life challenges so His purposes can complete what they started in me. He wants me to exchange a worldly viewpoint for a Kingdom Perspective that shakes me out my eartly comfort zone, digs my life roots deeply in His Kingdom. Jesus leads me on a faith adventure, a step by step followship of the Holy Spirit, a leaving of my plans, expectations and worldly dreams and a leaning into the Sovereign Will of the Father God. I want to exchange, my plans, hopes and dreams for God’s heart’s desire! This Is My Easter Say So! Kimberly Mac
“Think of the things that take you out of the position of abiding in Christ. I then have to build my thinking patiently, to bring it into perfect harmony with my Lord. Make the determination to abide in Jesus wherever you are now, or wherever you may be placed in the future.” Author ~ Oswald Chambers
