Hallelujah, praise the living God for another day to pray for you all and be used by Him. Today I offer these lines from Franky Schaeffer V.
“Either God is the Creator of the whole man, the whole universe, and all of reality and existence, or He is the Creator of none of it. If God is only the Creator of some divided platonic existence which leads to a tension between the body and the soul, the real world and the spiritual world, if God is only the Creator of some spiritual little experiential “praise the Lord” reality, then He is not much of a God. Indeed, He is not I AM at all. If our Christian lives are allowed to become something spiritual and religious as opposed to something real, daily applicable, understandable, beautiful, verifiable, balanced, sensible, and above all united, whole, if indeed our Christianity is allowed to become this waffling spiritual goo that nineteenth-century platonic Christianity became, then Christianity as truth disappears and instead we only have a system of vague experiential religious platitudes in its place.”
New American Standard Bible
14 And God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM”; and He said, “This is what you shall say to the sons of Israel: ‘I AM has sent me to you.’”
Heavenly Father, in the name of our Lord Jesus, Your servant praises and worships You. Bless Your perfect and powerful Word. Praise Your sovereignty and lovingkindness. Help us to know who You are deep within our hearts. Guide us in the paths of righteousness for Your name’s sake. Bring us back to Your Christianity and help tear down any and every mess we have made of it. In Jesus’ name and in the power of the Holy Spirit, amen.
If this prayer blessed you or brought you peace, please share this with someone in need.
