Empathic Witnessing – [ inSpirit ]
What’s so funny or at least humorous about this blog, is that I don’t know how to pronounce the first word in the title, but I did have an inSpirit experience to use it. Plus, I know I should put a space between in and Spirit, but I want to be honest and let you know that I’ve already journeyed to far with a space between us.
Once again to be up front, this blog may not understand if you are a mediocre Christian. There are some things inSpirit that can only be understood as a disciple of Jesus, a devoted follower of Christ or a Spirit led individual. All three are one of the same, but cannot be compared to mediocre or average when it comes to being a Christian.
My hope is not to make you feel like you don’t measure up or to leave you feeling put down. If anything I would like to encourage you to posture yourself as a servant learner before the written Word and allow the Spirit to lead you to all Truth. Whaa!!!
From my vantage point, I’ve often wondered if something is missing when I converse with the average church goer. There is much needed dialog on some of the verses in scripture that speak clear on several topics.
Hey why not – the crowds of people might read this
And He was also saying to the crowds, “When you see a cloud rising in the west, immediately you say, ‘A shower is coming,’ and so it turns out. “And when you see a south wind blowing, you say, ‘It will be a hot day,’ and it turns out that way. “You hypocrites! You know how to analyze the appearance of the earth and the sky, but why do you not analyze this present time?
Luke 12:54 – 56
The words in red are from our Commander and Chief and if I could be a small voice for Him, “They ought to be heeded”
Nothing like jumping in with both feet. Hey Roger, why don’t you tell us how you really feel?
Ok, I will
I truly believe with all my heart that God’s glory, , , , , , sorry give me a second, , , , is about to be dispatched upon the earth like most of us have never seen. It will not be moved by crowds or orchestrated by leaders, but will settle with a designed purpose on individuals. One will not only discover teachable revelation, but will also be infused with how the Father’s heart beats and aches for humanity.
For the sake of Your word, and according to Your own heart, You have done all this greatness to let Your servant know.
2 Samuel 7:21
If you need help, find the above bible address, posture yourself like David, pray the prayer he prayed and apply it to your story. If I keep telling you this stuff I will have to change my title to “prodigal Father”. But maybe we can leave that for another day.
But let me tell you what I’ve been told, Jesus, as Lord of the Church, Priest, Prophet and King well not leave you as orphans. He promised to send you a Voice to guide you each and every day that the scripture validates and confirms. The guiding Voice is the third person of the Trinity, just to be clear. It is not your conscience. Your footprints, fingerprints and present behavior is out of step, with what the Spirit wants, if you’re only listening to your conscience.
Question time – Do you want to be a good person or a Godly person? Yes \ No
Let’s sum up, In the coming days, the Spirit of God deeply desire to use individuals to reveal this present age. Words of knowledge, Words of wisdom, exhortation, discernment and I could go on, but these manifestation will be a daily occurrence for the believers.
Emphatic means “the ability to understand and share the feelings of another.” If you are a disciple of Jesus, a devoted follower of Christ and living a Spirit filled and guided life, it is time to use your voice to declare what the Spirit of God is revealing to you. Remember, the Voice you listen to would never misguide you away from God’s Holy Word.
One thing this present age don’t need from Christ followers is spiritual bullying, just remember this
Or do you think lightly of the riches of His kindness and tolerance and patience, not knowing that the kindness of God leads you to repentance?
Above all, keep fervent in your love for one another, because love covers a multitude of sins.
1 Peter 4:8
Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.
