I’ve watched this preaching a million times. I shared it with a friend yesterday and decided to watch it again. It’s amazing how God reveals something different each time I watch this.
This is only part 3 of the video and the part that really moved me today.
Being a follower of God’s Word is not easy. We face the world’s opposition every day and sometimes we are set apart. In the video, Kari tells us the story of the woman out casted by the city because of their culture and beliefs of the sick being unclean. Believing in the miracles that Jesus had been doing in other cities, she finds the courage to go into the city and face the opposition and ridicule to possibly be healed. She eventually makes it to Jesus and faithfully touches the tip of his garment and is healed.
I’ve always thought this scripture was just about faith, and it is; however, tonight God has really put in my heart to be as courageous as this woman and not be defined by my culture.
Lord, I want to be as courageous and brave as she was. I truly believe that our generation has been called for this….to stand up for the Word of God. My Pastor, Iris, always mentions to us that our generation has been called to be radical for the love of God. Now its up to us to decide how radical we want to be.
I’m not saying it’s easy…because I know first hand it’s not. The enemy attacks us from every which way and makes it easier than ever to conform to the ways of the world but when will we say enough is enough!
I encourage you to evaluate your role as a follower of Christ in society. I realized that I needed to step it up. I find myself keeping my mouth shut when God is tugging at me to speak up. Imagine all the blessings we are missing out on because we are worried about what society is going to think about us. Had this woman not gone to look for Jesus in the city she would have struggled with her disease for the rest of forever but instead she was blessed with healing. Don’t let the enemy rob you of your blessings.
Romans 12:2 ESV
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
