None of us is perfect. We give in to pride; we hold on to resentment and sometimes we just screw up. But as believers of the Word we must learn to overcome them; to die to ourselves and move forward to what is ahead. Shawn Laser defined martyrdom in this, “Martyrdom is like Faith, everyone has it but only few have the gift. Every day we are to be picking up our Cross and dying to self.” We need to fix our eyes on He who is Jesus Christ. Because only He brings HOPE to the HOPELESS, only He brings life to those who are in darkness, and only He brings death to life and that’s why we are alive. That’s why we need to die to self-every day, because the more we do –the more we recognize that Christ is working through us and in us and nothing we do is done through our own strength. We are so imperfect in a world that is trying to become perfect. Everything the world strives for is perfection, plastic surgery, Victoria Secret models, the next iPhone, the perfect beach ready body, best cloth, cars, house, mansions, and more… but we are called to change the world not become like it. Paul said in Romans 12:2 that we must not conform but transformed.
So what is “The POWER is Out?” It’s a time for me to rest, mediate on the love of Jesus and just to recalibrate my vision. I don't necessarily preach, I mostly share. My desire is to introduce this generation to The One who brought me life. Facebook has become a ministry in my life, where I encourage people and help spread the gospel to ALL who decide to listen/read. Through Ecclesiastes 11:3 I understand that “I know I'm filled to emptied again and the seed I've received I will sow.” Because I’m always surrounded by an incredible amount of people who are always filling me up with genuine wisdom, I am always translating that love into a facebook post, tweet or blog.
I don't live a religion, tradition or superstition, but rather a passionate love relationship with Jesus. I'm a simple Guy living a BOLD life for Christ. -Francisco Nelson
