FOR IF, WHEN WE WERE GOD’S ENEMIES, WE WERE RECONCILED TO HIM THROUGH THE DEATH OF HIS SON, HOW MUCH MORE, HAVING BEEN RECONCILED, SHALL WE BE SAVED THROUGH HIS LIFE!
I was reconciled to the Perfect Father, through the death of His Son, at an early age. That was a one-time settlement. But, that was only the beginning. There is more, MUCH MORE—the MUCH MORE OF OUR SALVATION.
Beloved, I want you to know that I was sent by the Perfect Father to live in you, so that I may share THE FULL GLORY OF MY ROYAL LIFE with you, from the inside-out: My Love…My Light…My Hope…My Joy.
Know that My Father did not send Me to improve your life from the outside with glitz and glamor, but to exchange you on the inside for My own Life. I did not come to only restore you to what you had been before you were labeled “shameful”…before you were dubbed “abandoned”…before you were tagged “condemned”…before you were called “rejected.” No, I came to remove what do not belong in you—the abandoned Orphan, the condemned Criminal, the shameful Cinderella, and the rejected Victim—to put Myself in their place. I came to live My own Life in you. This is the MUCH MORE OF YOUR SALVATION!
I HAVE COME THAT THEY MAY HAVE LIFE, AND THAT THEY MAY HAVE IT MORE ABUNDANTLY
Do you recognize an abandoned Orphan, a condemned Criminal, a shameful Cinderella, and a rejected Victim in your heart? How are these phantom characters hindering you from the abundant Life? Would you like MUCH MORE than what these characters can offer you?
EMBRACE each phantom character. EXPOSE each one to the redemption and salvation of the Lord Jesus. Ask Him to EXCHANGE each one of them for Himself—HIS OWN MUCH MORE LIFE.
PRAYER: Lord Jesus, I need MUCH MORE than what these phantom characters can give me. I need YOU. I invite Your Presence and Participation into each one of these characters that lives in my heart. Erase them, Lord Jesus, through Your redemption and salvation, and take their place in my heart. Then, I will have Your Life, Your Hope, Your Light, and Your Joy living in me, from the inside-out.
Maintain an Awareness
Obedient surrender consists of three steps: EMBRACING, EXPOSING, and giving permission to be EXCHANGED.
