what comes to mind when u see those words, 'forgotten God'? God, the father, Jesus, the Son?
what about the 3rd person of God's character, His Spirit. the Spirit that resides in us and helps us be the hands and feet and sometimes the voice of God.
Jesus lived the example we r to be. we read many stories about how Jesus walked to and fro and worked beside those he talked with. sitting at tables that a lot of people would choose not to be a part of. well, Jesus is physically not here right now but God's spirit remains here on earth for us. God's Spirit can do more than what Jesus in physical form could do. God's Spirit resides within each created person. but sadly, many choose to ignore God's Spirit and go a different way.
here r some questions i have asked in the past: how do i allow God's Spirit to fully be alive within me? how do i be an example of Jesus that God's Spirit can work thru and see even the smallest of miracles? what do i have to do? where do i express God's Spirit?
the first ?, 'how do i allow God's Spirit to fully be alive within me?
relationship. spending time with God by talking with Him, pouring over His written Word thru studying, and listening ever so closely for God's voice to speak with u. that is how u open and allow God's Spirit to fully be alive within. i go thru my day chatting with God in my spirit and sometimes i can hear Him converse with me. still working on the listening stuff but getting better.
the 2nd ?, 'how do i be an example of Jesus that God's Spirit can work thru and see even the smallest of miracles?'
as u go thru your day, do the little things at first like smiling at someone or saying "hi". maybe u can help someone, walk with them, comfort them, be a real friend, or just listen. actions speak so loud when words r rarely heard by others. people remember what u do. words can sometimes be misconstrued but actions cannot.
the 3rd ?, 'what do i have to do?'
make yourself available to God. as u chat with Him, let God know u r willing to be His hands and feet, as well as a voice, if needed. because Jesus is no longer physically here, we r the physical hands and feet of God now.
the 4th ?, 'where do i express God's Spirit?'
God has given us the command to "go into all the world". the "all the world" might be your street, city, state, or it could literally mean all the world. God will tell u where u r to be His hands and feet. everyday living is what most of us do. we go to get up, go to work, come home. in all we do during the day, we have opportunity to express God's Spirit: home, job, recreation. God provides the opportunity, we have to be willing to put action to God's Spirit within us.
so my ? to u is: do u know the forgotten God?
