I went to the Global Leadership Summit last week and we got to hear from a survivor of the 1994 Rwandan genocide. The main thing I took from her story living through that atrocity, was that love is such a strong force and can accomplish so much. I drew this in my notebook for the day, enjoy!
Through the years, while studying the Bible, I discovered there is a common theme: THE LAMB. It begins from the beginning of Genesis (Genesis 4:4) to the end of the Bible (Revelation 22:3).
In Revelation 6, It is written about the Lamb who sits in the midst of the throne, worshiped by all of heaven because the Lamb was worthy to take the book and open the seals therein. The most harmless of creatures, the object of sacrifice, becomes the authority of heaven. Isn’t it interesting that the focal point of heaven is a Lamb?
The world we live in today constantly wake up to seek power, fame and glory. The world’s mentality is “survival of the fittest.” This is the way “nature works”. And yet, I often wonder, how would a lamb fare in this competitive environment?
The Lamb appears to be the weakest of all the animals, and yet, it is the symbol of power and authority in the Kingdom of God! What an amazing paradox. You see, Authority in the Kingdom of God is marked and even defined by gentleness and sacrifice, which is in total opposition to the world’s definition.
When our Lord Jesus died as the lamb of God, He revealed the greatness of sacrifice. Several of His paradoxical statements illustrate His Kingdom priorities. In Matthew 10:39, He says “He that loses His life for my sake shall find it”. Also in Matthew 23:11, He said “He that seeks to be greatest in the Kingdom shall become a servant to all”. And then we had such words as, Victory through death, Gain through total loss, Great stature through abject servanthood? Such are the beautiful ways of our Lord.
When I meditate on the Lamb, I discovered the greatness in humility, the authority in harmlessness, the responsibility in servanthood, the victory in surrender, and the majesty in submission to the great God of all creation. In His world, servants become kings; surrender becomes victory; death turns to resurrected life. Take hold of the paradox of the Lamb. Take hold of the Kingdom of Heaven today!

Deus, meu Deus Tudo está tão difícil pra mim
Deus, meu Deus Muitos me perguntam onde tu estás?
Dentro de mim minha alma se abateu Mas tua mão contudo me respondeu
Em tua presença, oh Deus
Quando eu chorar vou me lembrar
Que até aqui tua mão me sustentou
Digo a minha alma espera em Deus
Pois ainda o louvarei, eu o louvarei
(Quando eu chorar - Bruna Karla) 👆🏻🙏❤
It is Monday .

Not be bothered to start the day maybe because we tired, or there is something we not looking forward to? .

One small positive thought in the morning can really change your whole day! .

Hebrews 6: 1 - 20 (NT - October 23)⠀
Paul has reiterated the role of Jesus, and how He fits in with the Old Testament writings. He continues by saying that it is still possible to hear the word and understand it, but not act upon it - just like the Lord's people did in the OT. But this time no amount of religious "repentance" will help. If you turn your back on Jesus you will not find salvation anywhere else.⠀
The verse quoted is very reminiscent of the parable of the sower.⠀
"For land that has drunk the rain that often falls on it, and produces a crop useful to those for whose sake it is cultivated, receives a blessing from God. But if it bears thorns and thistles, it is worthless and near to being cursed, and its end is to be burned."⠀

VERSE OF THE DAY
When I kept it all inside, my bones turned to powder, my words became daylong groans. The pressure never let up; all the juices of my life dried up. Then I let it all out; I said, “I’ll make a clean breast of my failures to God .” Suddenly the pressure was gone— my guilt dissolved, my sin disappeared. Psalm 32:3-5
