Kneeling With the Heart

Thursday, February 20, 2014
What does it mean to be a person who kneels before God?  Spiritually, kneeling is more than just an outward posture.  Kneeling implies placing one’s entire life at God’s disposal. 

Paul says we have "died" with Jesus, so we ought to be raised with Him.  The picture is one of being entwined as a rope's strands.  Anywhere the central strand goes, so goes the rest.  We have become submissive to Him.  We no longer respond to the things of the past; now we submit to Christ.  Every choice should reflect Christ in us.

In our culture we are taught to be assertive and self-sufficient.  But Christianity means dependency on Christ, submissiveness.  Our lives are hidden, or locked-up with Jesus.  It's a one-way door that brings us into the presence of God.

How do you feel about worship?  Not just in the church house, but a constant awareness of the presence of Christ.  Do you sense Him riding in the car, at work and when you're changing a diaper?  Is His imprint there when you go to the bank or a ball game?  A.W. Tozier said, "We are called to an everlasting preoccupation with God."  Our measure of how our life is going as a Christian is that Christ IS our life.  

Today…for YOU
How “wrapped-up in Christ” is your life?
