Wisdom of the Ages – God’s Time Piece

Wisdom of the Ages

God’s Time Piece

“And the evening and the morning were the third day.”
Genesis 1:13

Time in God is marked by things accomplished. The third day was completed upon God finishing the work He had purposed for that given day. His life and works are recorded as things accomplished not as things promised. This living truth is the heartbeat and focus of those who are in Him.

“Not that I have already obtained all this,
or have already been perfected,
but I press on to take hold of that
for which Christ Jesus took hold of me”
Philippians 3:13

In reading the third chapter of Philippians it takes very little effort to see the centrality of Paul’s life and heart. It was one of pursuit and purpose. His life was about the apprehension of the purpose of God. His passion was wrapped up in accomplishing the thing that God had purposed for him and not just the contentment of a promise.

“But I have a baptism to be baptized with;
and how am I straitened till it be accomplished!”
Luke 12:50

This is the most poignant description of the passion and heart of Jesus. His whole being was bent to the accomplishment of the Will of His Father. He did not rest in the promises concerning Him but was motivated to the fulfillment of them; so it should be with us.

“Let us therefore fear, lest,
a promise being left us of entering into his rest,

any of you should seem to come short of it”
Hebrews 4:1

We are not to rest in doctrines, teachings and promises but we are to press toward the accomplishing of His will in the earth.

“I press toward the mark for the prize
of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus”
Philippians 3:14

“Wherefore doth the Lord make your cup run over, but that other men’s lips might taste the liquor? The showers that fall upon the highest mountains should glide into the lowest valleys. “Give, and it shall be given you”, is a maxim little believed.”

“Am I becoming more and more in love with God as a holy God, or with the conception of an amiable Being who says, “Oh well, sin doesn’t matter much”?”

Johnathan Edwards

“True boldness for Christ transcends all, it is indifference to the displeasure of either friends or foes. Boldness enables Christians to forsake all rather than Christ, and to prefer to offend all rather than to offend Him”
– Jonathan Edwards

“…let us have grace,
whereby we may serve God acceptably
with reverence and godly fear”

Hebrews 12:28
