AUGUST 1 – RULES

08/01 Luke 6:20
Then Jesus turned to his disciples and said, “God blesses you who are poor, for the Kingdom of God is given to you.
RULES
We need rules yet we hate rules. Some of us need more rules than others. We rebel when someone says this is the way it should be. We can’t possibly keep these rules in Luke 6 or the rules in any other chapter and yet if we give ourselves up to Jesus He will equip us, enable us and guide us as we learn to live by Kingdom Rules. Here goes. I’m a sinner; you’re a sinner all of us at one time were dead in our trespasses and sin. Now we are no longer outside the Kingdom for we have been forgiven and brought near to God by the Lord Jesus Christ. And yet we still struggle with our daily devotion to the Lord and so often find ourselves trying to live in this world and in the spiritual realm, which we know is impossible. Seek the Lord. As you grow in Christ likeness you will be burdened by your sin. You will experience insurmountable obstacles and still you will persevere. Jesus is Lord and you have put yourself under His rule. You let Him provide what you need for the spiritual realm and you are devoted to putting everything you own and have under His rule. The Kingdom of God is given to you.
