Stop, Yield, Go!
This past Sunday I spoke on recognizing the resurrected Jesus in our time, by reading three signs we see every day. 1) STOP naval gazing and look up and see what is happening in the world around us. 2) YIELD to God’s Spirit moving by pausing, discerning and joining in. 3) GO share God’s love by moving forward, and engaging the world and making disciples.
We see these signs on any given day while driving around in a car and yet they blend into normalcy as go through the actions of driving. When we remind ourselves to see these same type of signs from a spiritual perspective, we invite in the Holy Spirit to continue the transforming work that began when we first came to Jesus.
I’ve had the lyrics to an old song by Keith Green, going through my head this week, as I consider the work of the Holy Spirit in the early church, here are a couple verses:
“Rushing wind, blow through this temple
Blowing out the dust within
Come and breathe your breath upon me
For I've been born again
Holy Spirit, I surrender
Take me where you want to go
Plant me by your living water
Plant me deep so I can grow
Jesus, you're the one who sets my spirit free
Use me, Lord, glorify your holy name through me”
I pray that God’s spirit would blow through me, cleansing me and preparing me for engaging the world around me with the good news of Jesus’ love! I hold that same prayer for each of you.
