Who Has More Space?

What do all these have in common? They stunt our spiritual growth and crowd out God's Word.

"The thorny ground represents those who hear and accept the message but all too quickly the message is crowded out by the cares and riches and pleasures of this life. And so they never grow into maturity." Luke 8:14

Have the things of this world, taken up more residency within your heart than the Word of God?

Sometimes in the blindness of our own selfishness, Jesus comes in and removes the film from our eyes and the hardness in our hearts and gives us glimpses of His perspective. He often reveals these glimpses through a flooding of emotions. Tears, laughter, heartache, in our sickness, even in our bondage. But most of all He reveals them to us through His Word.

We have a choice, we can remain in His perspective and allow His love and healing and cleansing to take place within us or we can fall back into our own blindness.

What glimpse of perspective has Jesus given you and what are you doing with it?

"So if you're serious about living this new resurrection life with Christ, act like it. Pursue the things over which Christ presides. Don't shuffle along, eyes to the ground, absorbed with the things right in front of you. Look up, and be alert to what is going on around Christ-that's where the action is. See things from His perspective." Colossians 3:1-2 (The MSG)
