Set your sights on the highest peak

If you want to look beyond the horizon, you will need to scale something high enough that will allow you to see beyond the obstruction of your view. In the same way, if you want to rise above the average and mundane challenge and reward, you need to set your sight on things above and not the things below. God's promises are out there on the horizon, just beyond the average and mundane. When you decide to scale to higher heights and deeper depths in his Word and with prayer, you will find waiting, just beyond the horizon,  a view that will capture your imagination and you will experience the glory of God on a scale you have not had. Therefore, don't settle for what is in front of you, because that battle has already been won. Set you sights on the highest peak, because that is the place God is calling you to be.

Starting strong to finish strong!

Every serious endeavor is started strong because momentum is your friend. Anytime a person starts something halfhearted or without effort and planning, failure can be predicted. Whether you believe in new year resolutions or not, it is a new season. New seasons in your life demands planning and consideration if you are going to conquer your giants. I have learned that victory is not automatic, and failure can be certain, if I am not intentional about the results that I want. I am leading the church to start their year strong! During the entire month of January 2018, I am challenging the church to seek God for new power. You don't need new things to have a new beginning. Nevertheless, you will need new power to experience new blessings in your life. You don't buy this power at Exxon; you can't charge in on Amazon. This new power comes by fasting and prayer. You see, new power flows around you everyday; you must learn to tap into it for that flow to intersect with your life.

Apply it and live it.

Easter is a 2000 year old story of reconciliation. But how can there be reconciliation when the difference between us and God are like night & day? A sacrifice had to be made, and it couldn't come from us. It had to come from God. And this is the story of Easter. Jesus paid for the gap between God's level of perfection and our level of morality. The gap represents the separation between us and God caused by our rebellion against God; refusing to live for God, fighting against Him, & disobeying Him. The gap between God's level of perfection & our level of morality is called SIN. Rom 3:23-24: 23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. Sin is a biblical term which means missing the mark. Sin causes the gap of separation between us & God. You might thinking right now that you are a moral person & you're probably are. You might even say that you think that you are more moral that a lot of Christians you know-could be. You were probably raised to be a moral person. But, God is not comparing your level of morality with another person's level of morality... It's between your level of morality & God's level of perfection. The question you must ultimately answer is simply this: is there a gap between the two? The bible is very clear on the answer....there is a gap! What are you going to do about your gap? But. I got "good news....." Jesus death on the Cross "RECONCILED" the gap of separation between us & God! 2 Cor. 5:18, 19, reads: 18 All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation(reconciled 2 reconcile).that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men's sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation.  One cross-one man...bridged the gap between us & God-forever! All of this is from God who RECONCILED us to himself through JESUS CHRIST.... The cross bridged the gap between us & God. Why? God is seeking to save that which was lost to Him.

If you haven't surrendered your life to Jesus Christ, God is seeking after you! Jesus RECONCILED the gap between God's level of perfection & our level of morality. So, No matter where you are on the morality scale, Jesus makes us the difference! When you put your faith in Jesus, the gap go's away. Because Christ took the gap away.... The lost relationship between us and God could be restored. RECONCILE means to bring together. It's the idea that two persons who should have been together all along are brought by together. You are meant to be in were destined to be a Christ follower.  RECONCILE does not mean you are sinless or perfect.

It means that God has taken away the gap by accrediting to your account Christ’s perfection.

Now get this: The cross became the bridge into the presence of God. I'm no longer an enemy, I am a child. I was lost, but now I'm found. When I pray, I cry out...abba father. Whatever you were lacking, it was RECONCILED by the Cross. You can either accept it or reject it, but you can't dictate the terms of it. The gap between God's level of perfection & your level of morality remains without the cross! Paul wrote these words in scripture: I implore you, be RECONCILED to God. Finally, when you are reconciled to God through Jesus Christ, you become sons of God-that makes you an heir of God & a joint heir with Jesus Christ. (You can discover the life you've always wanted. I'm not talking about Champaign wishes & caviar dreams....) Only when you have been RECONCILED can discover the depths of God's love & life in the Spirit.
