Today’s message goes beyond Lent.
We are entering a new season. It is the preparation of sharing the journey with Christ, with the end result being His Resurrection and New Life.
Save this podcast. Listen to it when you find yourself facing a challenge or feel discouraged with the process.
“When the mind goes awry, the fluttering of the heart is not far behind. Be not distracted, God is greater than any disruption.”
“Fear Not, Peace Be with You; Be Strong and of Good Courage.” (Dan. 10)
If you are struggling a bit, I am sharing an excerpt taken from Positive Christianity:
Say this positive prayer out loud this week; once every waking hour:
“I Face Life with Courage and Optimism. I Now Have God’s Help!”
Pass It On!
Jesus said, “Sky and Earth will pass away but my words will never pass away…”
My Peace Will Never Pass Away…
My Love Will Never Pass Away!
“Love God. Listen to His Voice & Hold Fast.” (Deut. 30)
When we describe the word ‘Consecration’ it can have a dual meaning:
Consecration as it relates to the Holy Eucharist (Mass); the elements of bread and grape juice are transformed into the Precious Body and Precious Blood of Jesus also known as transubstantiation.
In Matthew, Chapter 8, we revisit the scene of the centurion asking for assistance for one who is ill, “Lord, I am not worthy to have you come under my roof; but only speak the work and my servant will be healed.”
Consecration can also relate to worthiness. Am I worthy in God’s eyes? Yes!
I have incorporated the following text into my own “Breaking Bread” format and have shared with others:
“Lord, I Am worthy to receive You. When You speak the Word and breathe upon me, I AM Healed.”
“I Pray that this Body and this Blood will bring me to Eternal Life, Joy, Hope, Peace, Understanding, Faith, Freedom, Healing and God’s Truth, Amen!”
However we consecrate ourselves to God; whether during prayer or partaking in communion, we are worthy to receive all He has in store for us, due to His Love for us.
“Consecration is the act of continually separating myself from everything, except that which God has appointed me to do. It is not a one-time experience but an ongoing process.” (Utmost)
