Being Naked

There is a level of intimacy that words can not express. This connection of intimacy between two persons that allows one to know the other in an infinite way. When we fall in love, we desire this intimacy, and the truth is that we have not come to know this relational connection by healthy models. Men and women have not been examples of relationship with ourselves, with the neighbor, with God. That is what I want to talk about: it is needed to bet naked. What am I talking about? Do not get confused, dive in the Word with me and let us understand this.

The Prodigal Father

20120909-212943.jpg

My spiritual dad always points out how God’s love is extravagant, and lavishes over us. He is constantly teaching on the famous story of the lost son found in Luke chapter 11, commonly known as the prodigal son, or as I learned from him, the prodigal father.

So I decided to write this note to you today. The definition of ‘prodigal’ is ‘wastefully extravagant’. Even thought you cannot find this word in the Bible, that’s a very accurate definition for His love. He loves you so much that he squanders all of His love, riches, grace, abundance on and for you. Do not ever let the syndrome of the older brother ever make you doubt of the prodigal Father God!!!

Become What You Behold

Last Summer I had the chance to buy a very awesome paraphrased Bible in the US. It is always a lot of fun to read this version of translation that is transliterated into a very easy language. I love one verse in particular of Matthew 9. After reading the Scriptures in this version called The Message, I like to compare with my English Standard Bible, sometimes with the King James Version or the Brazilian Portuguese version. However what I love to do is to go to the originals, Hebrew, Greek or Aramaic and see the word by word meaning of the verse, once I have read the whole context, I can go deep in the Word.

So Jesus was going down this road with his disciples and others and the story tells us two blind men followed him crying out, “Mercy, Son of David! Mercy on us!”, then they keep following Jesus, and even when Jesus goes in the house they go with him. So Jesus asks them if they really believe he can do that. They answer, “Yes, Master!” and Jesus touches their eyes and say, “Become what you believe”, that is on verse 29. It happens, they are healed and after that Jesus healed many others.

What I want to point out here is this powerful declaration of Jesus: Become what you believe. The original says, may it be done to you according to your belief, it means be born out of your faith and it is literally a ‘become what you believe’. It is a become what you behold! Be transformed according to your faith and expectation. Wow! That’s wonderful! Jesus is inviting you to experience more than words, more than convictions, ideologies and expressions! He wants to change your reality, He wants to empower you to change atmospheres everywhere you go.

Jesus asked them, “Do you really believe?” Do you really believe? He is asking you as you read this. If you believe in His words, if you trust in His prophetic voice over you. Your realities are defined by the risk you take and the step out in faith. If your answer is yes, then allow Him to drive you in your daily life. Change your mentality into Kingdom’s perspectives. Love like He loved you. This radical compassion and love of Jesus imparts to us the same power, love and authority to walk as Jesus walked on earth and shape history.

Change your day, take authority over it and be a royal ambassador of the King of Kings on earth! Become what you believe!!!
