Emptying and Offering

This is what Yeshua did. And we are called to imitate Him. So what does this mean for us?

Surely it means that we also are to empty and offer. But what does this actually mean, practically?

We have to put aside all our own ideas, even our ideas about what our ministry call is, put aside our goals and ambitions, give up everything we are and have. This is what emptying is. And this is what Yeshua did. He was and is God, but He didn’t cling to that. He became a servant, a bondslave.

Are we prepared to do this, to become nothing as it were? Or do we cling to things believing we are entitled to them for some reason. Really we are entitled to nothing, We are only saved because of His Amazing Grace and Love.

Surely we can put aside what we think we are, or think we can offer, and just offer what He wants us to?

Yeshua did not say, ‘Hey, I am God the Son’. No He said ‘i am Your son, i will become Your bondslave and i will do what You ask me to do. No matter what the cost.’ 

Offering to Adonai  is to be on His terms not ours.

I’m back

It’s been a while since I posted. I really haven’t been mo0tivated to do it.

But I have been reading anew about the grace of God and I know more and more that He is good and that His grace, love and kindness are towards us. So much love is being shown to me by the people at myn church, even from those I do not know.

Anyway, I hope to post on a more regular basis from now on.

Blessings

Trish

Greetings and welcome

Welcome to my blog. A place for me to muse about faith and life and share my thoughts and feelings and favourite recipes. Just a blog to express who I am in the Lord.

I will not avoid issues that may seem controversial such as headship, and I know I will step on peoples toes, but I do not see that as my problem. My faith is my faith, and the word of God is the word of God..

Feel free to comment but please do so in the love of Christ and do not use me as a guide for I am not perfect.

This is also my first post so please bear with me as I learn as I go.

Blessings to you.
