And yes I know the word is spelled flourish but this is creative license at work.:)
The theme of Flurish is based on this verse; “The thief’s purpose is to steal, kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.” John 10:10
Any takers for a rich and satisfying life? Do you believe such a life is possible?
In this verse there are two polar opposite powers and personalities. The first is the thief or more commonly known as the devil, enemy, satan, lucifer etc., What is his purpose? Simply put, it is our ultimate eternal destruction; physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. In the meantime his purpose is to make our life on earth a living hell (pardon the pun).
The second personality/power in John 10:10 is (notice He identifies Himself right away) Jesus and HE calls Himself the Good Shepherd in the very next verse. What is His purpose? To give us a life deeply fulfilling beyond our imagination here in this world and eternal life in Heaven following.
Those are your choices. As Bob Dylan so aptly wrote in 1979, “You’re gonna have to serve somebody”. Who will you choose? My hope is that you have chosen or will choose Jesus and we can begin FLURISHING together right away.
For anyone wishing to choose Jesus right now simply follow the instructions in ROMANS 10:9 & 10 if you have a Bible. If not, here we go:
“If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.
For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved.”
New Living translation
Talk to God. A brief example follows.
Dear Lord of Heaven and Earth,
Forgive me and the sins I have done throughout my life. I believe You sent Your Son Jesus Christ to earth to die in my place for my sins so that I may live with you eternally. I believe Jesus rose from the dead and is living in Heaven with You right now. I want Jesus to come into my heart through the power of Your Holy Spirit and help me through the rest of my life. Thank You for loving me. Amen.
PLEASE let me know of your decision so I can be praying for you. I am here to help with any questions you may have. You are on your way to Heaven and FLURISHING here!
For the rest of you who have already chosen Him, I ask; DO YOU WANT TO FLURISH?
If yes, then join me biweekly and we will explore together in the coming days, weeks and for some of us years how to truly discover the Truth of His words in our own daily lives so we can all FLURISH!
I suppose I should tell you a bit about myself since we will be traveling together for awhile. I will be spilling my personal story out frequently for you to digest in small chunks as I share my own FLURISHING moments and lessons along the path of daily habitude.
