Moving On With Messiah

Jonathan Cahnby Jonathan Cahn

In Luke 4, Messiah is ministering in Galilee, and the multitudes want Him to stay there teaching and healing. But he says, “I must preach the Kingdom of God to other cities also, for I was sent for this purpose.” Messiah is saying in effect ‘I have to move on.’ So if Messiah says, “I have to move on,” then what must you say? One of the greatest ways to grow dead in your walk is to simply stay where you are; stop journeying, stop stepping out in faith, stop moving ahead. Messiah’s always moving on, and if you’re His follower, so must you. Have you been stuck in the same rut; dwelling in the past, stuck in anger, pondering what you once had in your life but lost? The Lord’s not staying in it, and neither should you. Move on with your life. Step out in faith. If you want the continuing presence and joy of the Lord in your life, then you have to move on with the Lord. For moving on is the only way to go when you’re going with the moving on Lord.

Today’s Mission – Today, seek the Lord on where you need to move forward and then move on with Him.

Fleeing The Rut

. . . I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. John 10:10

If we call Him Lord, how dare we sit any longer in the rut! The Lord has called us to move on. But when people are in a rut, not even the angel Gabriel can help them if they will not come out of it. This is not an accusation but a suggestion. If you are not in a rut, don’t get mad–somebody else is. But if you are in a rut you ought to get out of it. The difference between a wooden leg and a good leg is that if you prick a wooden leg the person would never notice. The difference between a church that has dry rot and a church that is alive is that if you prick the live church it will respond. If you prick the other kind, it is already dead. The tree that stands alive has lush, green leaves. Take a knife, scar the bark deeply and the tree will bleed. It is alive. The old dead tree just stands there, a watchtower for old sentinel crows. Take your knife and dig in as far as you want to, and nothing will happen because the tree is dead. So it is with my message. If you will get neither mad nor glad nor sad under my preaching, I know nothing can be done. But there are some who are alive, and I believe it is the majority.
