The gospel is not a message of postponement; it is not a note of delay. The gospel is the Good News of all that Christ accomplished for us at the cross. When Jesus cried out ‘It Is Finished!” he meant exactly what He cried, “It Is Finished!”
New life, power, right living, good marriages, healthy children, liberation from poverty, health to our bones, peace in our hearts, a spring in our step and clear skies of freedom are all our inheritance. All these things are available to us, right here, right now, today.
The great news is that Christ is ever present. united within of us; we have inside us now the petals of a beautiful flower that is waiting to open up and flourish in the sunlight of God’s wonderful grace. When He returns we will experience the transforming power in its fullness, we will become the full beautiful flower of creation. Until that final day, we are letting the flower inside slowly thrive and every moment of every day we are blossoming into all that His wonder grace has provided.
