Why do we find life so super-charged day after day? Don't we each have enough financial, emotional, and managerial ditches to bring us down to an unbeliever's level? But, we will not yield to such distracting life.
The why is in the Holy Spirit. We will never know the how; but we will the why. Jesus told us he had to move on up that we could receive him in Spirit form. He did and we do.
I remain enthused because of two basics: (1) I have not lost sight of what a sheer zero I am, and (2) Father has given me sight as to how deep He will reach to provide salvation. My being "up" is not dependent on how a day goes; good or bad. It is dependent upon Him. He really works in our world.
Be careful not to miss the forest for the trees. The Jesus life--in his terms--is abundant. We aren't called to die to go to heaven. Rather, it has come down in the form of Jesus and then the Holy Spirit. We are to die to self that we might enter the vast regions of unexplainable heaven now.
What keeps us pumped. It will never be a series of presentable and explainable passages from the Bible. It will never be because the church always comes through for us. It will always be because we know and carry the resurrected one, literally, in hearts.
Because of Him, we are able. Ephesians 3:21 says glory will, then, be rampant! God's glory...that's what keeps us pumped!
