Beautiful Outlaw Epilogue: One Last Thought.mp3
Excerpt from Participant’s Guide:
Surely you have noticed that we have entered a time of great suffering on the earth. And Jesus warned us about this. Before his death, his teaching turned very sober—nothing that would make a best seller in this world of “tell me how to make life work now.”
How badly would you love a guide from God on “how to make life work”? Is there such a guide?
Be very, very careful and pay attention to how you interpret your suffering. Don’t jump to conclusions. Interpretation is critical. Be aware of the agreements that you make. This is where the enemy can destroy you. Agreements such as God has abandoned me; it’s my fault; I’ve done something wrong, and a host of others. If you’ve been making these agreements, you will want to break them. They allow a chasm to form between you and your Jesus.
How might you have misinterpreted events or circumstances in your life?
What agreements or conclusions did you draw? How have those misinterpretations led to a chasm between you and Jesus?
When his suffering overﬂ ows into our lives, God’s promise is that his comfort will overﬂ ow to us as well. We can cry out for the comfort of God. Whatever your circumstances may be, he will heal your wounded heart; he will comfort. Cling to him. He is with you now. For his name is Faithful and True.
What are you looking forward to with Jesus?
It will do your heart good to let your hopes run in his direction. Meanwhile, make a practice of loving Jesus. Let him be himself with you.
Let His life ﬁll yours.
One of the ways we love him is to introduce others to him. There are a lot of folks out there who desperately need to know this Beautiful Outlaw.
