The Blood

Several years ago on Palm Sunday I wasn’t able to take communion because I had only confessed my sin of smoking, but I had never repented of it.  Needless to say, I nailed them to the cross the following Friday – Good Friday.  That Friday night, all I could hear was “it is finished”,  meaning He became my sin and I needed to leave it right there and never pick it back up.IMG_9573

This year, I was feeling pretty good about myself before communion.  However, when I asked the Lord to reveal to me any sin that I haven’t repented of He clobbered me with “it’s not about you, and it’s all about Me and what I’ve called you to do…which is to tell others about Me.”  This was a sin of omission; He had instructed me to begin building my partnership team and I have not asked the first person to financially support me to become a team member with TTR.  OUCH!  On Easter, I became obedient to my calling!

As I have shared in previous posts, the Lord has taught me numerous things by using the word “body.”  Well, He whispered “blood” to me during communion.  I began seeking what He was telling me: blood represents sacrifice.  Not only did He die (the ultimate sacrifice) so I can be freed from my sin to serve Him, but I need to die to MYSELF…I need to die to my fears, and my desires. Instead, I need to focus on Him and Him alone so I can fulfill my purpose and His calling for my life.

I am a daughter of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords! I am humbled that He calls me His own! I am learning to walk more boldly and confidently in who He has created me to be. My prayer is others will come to know Jesus as their Savior, identify with who they are in Him so they too can walk out the calling He’s places on their lives!
