But, Christ heard your cries and brought salvation and mercy into your life! He has redeemed those desolate places in your life into marvelous treasures. He has given you an inheritance and an overcoming power for those areas in your life that the enemy thought would keep you from fulfilling Christ’s purpose and plan.
When Jesus said “I came to seek and to save that which was LOST,” the word He chose was crystal clear. Read carefully the definition of the Bible word Jesus chose for LOST: 1) destroyed 2) put out entirely 3) abolished 4) rendered useless 5) put to death 6) given to eternal misery in hell! That’s what Jesus meant when He said, “lost.”
Herod the Great tried to stop Jesus after His birth by slaughtering all the children 2 years and under. Satan tried by tempting Him in the desert. The Pharisees tried by criticizing His teachings and miracles. Herod Antipas tried by questioning and mocking Him. Pilate and his soldiers tried by beating him publicly. The cross tried by bleeding the life from Him. Death, Hell and the Grave tried to stop Him with a stone over the tomb’s door.
If only they had known … Jesus is UNSTOPPABLE!
If only we knew the power of Paul’s words in Romans 8:11 … But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
The same Spirit that makes Jesus UNSTOPPABLE is in us! So if Jesus is unstoppable, so is His church! Who’s trying to stop your destiny in its infancy? What’s trying to tempt you away from your purpose? Who wants to halt your ministry? Why would you allow a little mocking or persecution to slow you down when you know that even DEATH can’t stop you!
You are UNSTOPPABLE in Christ Jesus!
