Here is a quick spiritual blip that came to me as I was in prayer this morning.
Jesus is the greatest of warriors, but he is the warrior of love, a spiritual warrior, a warrior of righteousness, representing the Kingdom of God which operates by a different set of precepts and laws that are totally foreign to the ways of man. The Kingdom ways are so totally foreign to our own way of thinking, that it means a great transition in our own living and understanding for us to “follow” the Lord and produce the Kingdom in our own life.
“My thoughts are nothing like your thoughts,” says the Lord. “And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine. For just as the heavens are higher than the earth, so my ways are higher than your ways and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.” (Isaiah 55:8-9 NLT)
So…if the Lord is to be the Master we choose to follow…then what does it mean to be samurai for Christ?
It means we must embrace humility. Pride is our enemy, and we must learn what it truly means to be the “sheep” of his “flock”. Pride is amazingly deceitful in its ability to creep in on us.
“Look, I am sending you out as sheep among wolves.” (Matt. 10:16 NLT)
Remember , Pride is Poison to the Anointing. (Selah).
