What does it mean to be authentic? For the last few months I’ve felt very unsettled…
what is my purpose?
what is our/my ministry?
why do I feel so defeated in every area?
We live/work at a Christian Camp and we’re rearing 2 beautiful children, so isn’t that it?
My husband read me this story the other night…if you’re not familiar with the original click here As he was reading it I mostly just digested it, but over the next few days it began to grow and grow in my soul. This is what I want to be like. Not the exact story of course…the heart of love and Jesus. To live quietly and simply, loving and serving others.
Then this morning as I was doing my bible study the Lord brought it home…
1 Peter 2:11 “Dear friends, I urge you, as aliens and strangers in the world, to abstain from sinful desires, which war against your soul”
1 Corinthians 5:7 “Get rid of the old yeast that you may be a new batch without yeast-as you really are. For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed”
from Beth Moore, Stepping Up; A journey through the Psalms of Ascent…“as long as we are carnal, we will never fulfill God’s ministry in our lives.” “We need to be authentic with ourselves and each other”
I want to be authentic! I want to be free of war in my soul! Thank you Lord that you died, you were our sacrifice, so we can love you! love others!
