Leap of Faith: Daily Lessons About Jesus Christ

Chapter: A True Saint (Pages 67-68)

The power of art and music is one of the greatest gifts that we have in the world. Think about what you have available in these two areas if you take advantage and learn how to use them. You can have a job doing whatever you want and transforming lives for the better.

If music is used efficiently and positively, using brilliant instrumentals and positive lyrics, we can see change unlike anything we have ever seen before. The gift that is granted to a son is one to be used to save lives. Embrace it and cherish the gift that was passed on to you from your parents and from God. Use it to the best of your ability in order for the future generations to be blessed.

Don’t take it for granted.

Think about this:

Revelation 19:16 (nasb) says, “And on He hath on His vesture and on His thigh, a name written, “King of Kings and Lord of Lords.”

What does the cross symbolize? It symbolizes the King of Kings. However, we are to think deeper than the cross. God created the world with an image in mind. He never desired to have to send His Son into the world as a living sacrifice. So, we may conclude that the image of God came first.

Think about it. Use that idea preciously. It was passed on to you for a reason. Embrace it, and you will can change the world and bring people together from all parts of the world…

 

“You were chosen as Saints and predestined to help the world…”

Use the brilliance of science to help transform the world into a world that knows God, our creator. Do you see how powerful the combination of the Bible and science can be if used to communicate the truth? Let it be clear; use science to teach the Word of God. Use music to tell stories of peoples lives and relate it to faith. This is what music was intended to do—communicate to peoples in order to find common ground and teach the truth of life. The truth of life is the living Word of God. A little bit of truth goes a long ways.

The key is to teach and help people understand the Bible clearly. Do not put God to the test. He always corrects us when we begin to rely on our humanistic ideas before His absolute truth. Remember, God can do anything. He knows all hearts.

Be the light. Be a hero. Don’t let God down.

 

Leap of Faith: Daily Lessons About Jesus Christ

Chapter: The Body of Christ (Pages 69-70)

And when He again brings the first-born into the world, He says, “And let all the angels of God worship Him.” And of the angels He says, “Who makes His angels winds, and His ministers a flame of fire.”

Hebrews 1:6-7 (nasb)

Therefore, when He comes into the world, He says, “Sacrifice and offering thou hast not desired, but a body thou hast prepared for Me.”

Hebrews 10:5 (nasb)

Then said He, “Lo, come to do thy will, O God.” He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second.”

Hebrews 10:9 (kjv)

This is at the heart of understanding the sacrifice that Jesus makes for us in the present. His body is a living testament that was brought into the world in order that the world might live. He asks nothing in return but only hopes that faith will be instilled and that we will bring honor to God our creator.

The angels of God soar in the wind, and the ministers of Christ are a flame of fire. How cool is it to know that this kind of power exists? Those that seek out God are rewarded with blessings from Above. We serve an all-powerful God that can do all things. He heals, empowers, strengthens, restores, and establishes His power in our hearts. There is no greater power.

 

Death has been swallowed up in victory.

“For this perishable must put on the imperishable, and this mortal must put on immorality. But when this perishable will have put on the imperishable, and this mortal will have put on immorality, then will come about the saying that is written, “Death is swallowed up in victory.”

1 Corinthians 15:53-54 (nasb) (emphasis added)

God takes the sin and death and swallows it up in order that we may be cleansed and burden free. This is how God takes away the sin of the world through His Son. It’s important to remember this key point.
