New beginnings

The birth of Jesus brought a new chapter in the life of Israel. They were to obey the law given by Moses. No wonder Father God had to find a new way. Every time I try and do things by instruction it does lots of things deep inside my Spirit.

When I get a new gadget I work out how to use it in my head, without reading the instructions. That is doing it my way.

Even when I do read the instructions I think there must be a better way than that to do things. I then adapt the instructions to suit myself. If I was an Israelite  I would have changed all the laws to suit myself.

That’s exactly what they did.

Father God knew this and had a plan. The plan was to send his Son Jesus into the world. Jesus would teach them about living the way that Father God wanted us to live.

This Christmas I have a choice between doing things my way or His way. Father God was truly a God of new beginnings as he sent the Holy Spirit to help us in our time of need.

Today I choose to do it His way?

What way will you choose today?

About cleavinghearts

I go to church in Troon Scotland. I want to see men from every nation rise up in Christ and be who they are called to be. I am interested in men getting together to praise and just do men's things. I also want to see women rise above their pain and turmoil so they are free to follow Jesus without the hindrances of their past.

    Why don’t we just go to the instructions first? It would save a lot of hassle. I suppose I like to think I can do it myself. I can’t. That’s human nature eh? Thank Him that we have a God that having condescended to being human, can truly understand us. I can’t comprehend God (he would be a pretty rubbish God if I could) but He understands me. I know I can’t keep the totality of the law, but can ask for it to be written on my heart, and with the Holy Spirit to guide me I choose to work out my life with His guidance.
