Chosen, Blessed, Broken and Redeemed through Christ.

2 Jan


Luke 9:14-17, “For there were about 5,000 men there. Jesus replied, “Tell them to sit down in groups of about fifty each.” So the people all sat down. Jesus took the five loaves and two fish, looked up toward heaven, and blessed them. Then, breaking the loaves into pieces, he kept giving the bread and fish to the disciples so they could distribute it to the people. They all ate as much as they wanted, and afterward, the disciples picked up twelve baskets of leftovers!”

Many Christians should always keep in mind the redemption process that God has set in motion for those He has chosen for His glory, John 15:16. Once we are saved by the blood that Jesus shed for our sins, then begins the purification process, the shifting of our souls to see what is pleasing to God and what is not. Luke 9:14-17, is a very good example of just what the Lord does He receives us, blesses us and then breaks us of the way we think, act, and what we say. Only then can we truly testify on His behalf for all that He has done for us. We have a tendency to look past this part though only wishing to get the blessings that God has but the Lord needs us to be rebuilt first before we can we positioned to do His work in whatever compacity that is fit for you to walk in. This means that some places that you used to enjoy going to will now be off limits because it doesn’t line up with Him, some friendships may end because old friends can give birth to old sins, remember Amos 3:3. So from time to time we are going to bump heads with the old man, after being born again but just know that something better is waiting for you on the other side once we are glorified in Christ! The breaking and mending back together is all for the glory of God the Father who in grace and mercy chose you to receive the gift of Jesus Christ. Stay Blessed…
