This month our jumping off point will be LIGHT. "now you are light in the Lord, walk as children of light." (Eph. 5:8). We will discover together what this verse means to our Identity, not by way of performance or requirement, but realization of our proper place as members of Christ's body.
All are welcome. Please call 770.690.0433 or email email@example.com to let is know if you plan to attend. Come enjoy this opportunity to be yourself. Requested donation: $10
"The Light of the Gospel is intense, it has no respect for darkness.....As such, it can be either astoundingly beautiful or extremely and personally offensive. If we have built and clothed ourselves with any sort of glory (reputation) on the branches of the Tree of the knowledge of Good and Evil, the Gospel will confront that reputation with the full weight of Truth in revealing it's hypocrisy and ...falseness, and it will strip the leaves off, leaving one naked without that 'reputation'....
You are light in the Lord
You are light.
You have been afraid
(of sickness, of suffering, of death, of weakness, of failure)
because you were identifying yourself with the physical body.
You feel dejected because you lost something
that you thought was your only source of life,
but that is to see yourself only as a physical being.
When you see yourself transfigured in Me,
you can see that in fact you are a being of light.
The body is just dust.
All Flesh is grass, and it will die and pass away.
It is beautifully shaped dust, exquisitely formed and held together
by My skill and power,
but It will age and be subject to sickness
your whole life on earth.
But when you see yourself as light,
when your eye (perspective) is light,
your whole body will be filled with light
and you will see yourself as I see you,
filled with the energy of My spirit,
fully alive forever with no death in sight.
You are a source of energy and love and power,
because you are in me now. I am light.
Walk in the light and the darkness cannot define you.
Do not let the darkness, or the pain and suffering of the body,
instead step outside of that with Me and see yourself as Light.
In my light you see light, and you can see that you yourself are light,
because you are identified with me.
You shine like a star in this world of darkness.
"It would appear that before sin and death entered, the couple lived in an acute awareness of the spirit dimension--so much so that they were hardly aware of their bodies except as the vehicles of their spirits. It would seem that the glory of the life of God shone through their bodies, clothing them in glorious light, much as it did Jesus in His transfiguration" (Malcolm Smith The Power of the Blood Covenant 34).
Someone could, and does love you more than you know.
filling your whole body with light.
Now, as then, he says to us, you are light in Me, walk as a child of light.
