JC spoke a three-part story to the pharisees about looking, searching, finding. this issue was so important to JC that he crafted a group of three parables to explain it.
pharisees, you lost something, something really important, something really valuable. you need to go look for it. the finale of the series is the story of the running daddy. this ‘thing’ is so important to your daddy that he will run to embrace it.
we are in that season now. daddy god is ready to run…
the jewish nation actually started from one man… abraham. he was a man with a simple mission. god said ‘i bless you. you bless the nations’. simple, but audacious. ‘all the families of the earth shall be blessed in you’. well the jewish people in the time of jesus, they liked the first bit… god said ‘i bless you’. they liked that… bring it on. but they so forgot the second bit… ‘you bless the nations’.
so let me say it again… saints, you lost something, something really important, something really valuable. you need to go look for it. this ‘thing’ is so important to your daddy that he will run to embrace it.
the grace of god is designed for really messed up people! blessed are the poor in spirit. blessed are those who mourn. if you are poor & messed up, JC has something special for you. the running daddy will run to embrace you. he will honour you.
we are in a ‘highways & byways season right now…
the party ain’t starting without the really messed up people. they are exactly the ones whom this grace party was designed for.
JC WANTS REALLY MESSED UP PEOPLE TO COME TO THE PARTY.
but messed up people don’t want your churches. churches suck. they don’t want your christianity. so we need to learn, discern, listen. it’s not hard, we have the holy spirit, the same instructor JC had. JC spoke what he heard from the father, & did what he saw the father doing. simple.
just do it.
so here’s the point… you lost something, go find it. JC has given us the capacity to bless the nations. ALL the families of the earth…
