I am in debt – not to this world system but to the believers and unbelievers that live in this world, in debt to share the Christ in me. I am crucified with Christ; it’s no longer I that live but Christ that lives in me. As a believer, a child of God, a joint heir with Christ, as a carrier of the Christ in me, I am in debt to you and to the unbeliever. Christ set me free from the bondages of this world, from its greedy, idolatry, materialistic and controlling nature. He forgave my sins, canceled my debt, and brought me into a life surrendered to His service, a life protected and provided for by His hand, a life led, guided, and empowered by His Holy Spirit. He gave me purpose and vision and led my steps through fiery trials to test me and strengthen me for service.
When I was yet dead in my sins and in the uncircumcision of my flesh (still in my sinful and carnal nature) God made me alive together with Christ, having freely forgiven me of my sin. From the very beginning God had a plan and a purpose and a destiny for me that no devil in hell could stop if I would just embrace by faith what His Son Jesus did for me. So I did and His purpose and plan began to unfold for me. As I embraced the work of the cross, it released the power of the truth to be released and activated in my life. His life by His Spirit is my very breath that I breathe in daily. Now, by His grace, He is making me debt-free to this world’s system, but I Am IN DEBT to the world, to you and to those that don’t know the truth. For my freedom came from Christ, and it’s Christ that came to set us free. Therefore I must share the truth of God’s Word with you, for you shall know the truth, and the truth will set YOU free.
It’s Christ in me, the hope of glory, called according to His purpose, appointed by His grace. I didn’t choose Him, but He chose me and appointed me, that I should bear fruit and that my fruit should remain and that whatever I asked the Father in His Name, He would do it for me. He chose me to live out a life in Christ, a life empowered by His Holy Spirit, a life that would magnify and glorify Jesus Christ to the world. First came the drawing and calling (the answering and surrendering), then came the purifying and equipping (the fire and the testing), then came the commissioning and empowering (the assignment and the anointing), and then the sealing and the sending out. God has a plan, a system, a way He works in all of our lives to bring us out of ourselves and into His divine nature and plan. He uses everything in our lives to mold and shape and equip us, to discipline and mature us for the greater work that He has created us for. The degree of our yieldedness and obedience effects the length of time spent in the wilderness. Surrender early and consistently. Each one of you is designed for a unique and predetermined work and assignment in the kingdom of God. God’s created you with a purpose and a destiny that is unique to you, that will glorify Him and that will bring redemption to this world. No matter what age you are, your life’s purpose and destiny is hidden with Christ in God as well. It’s hidden with your life IN Christ.
Not only are they great quality, but the colors of the fabulous artwork make them something special. There are a large number of choices; I could include only a few on this page. They make sending notes a joy, not to mention the way they will light up the day for those lucky enough to receive one with your personal note. Here are a number of cute Zazzle stamps. If you don’t find something you like in the selection go on to Zazzle and make your own custom stamp, or choose from literally tens of thousands of stamps designed by artists on the site. A well chosen, bright stamp is just an extra special touch. I really like the stamps that say “Thank You” on them and have the colors of the cards and envelope. With Zazzle, it is so easy to do. Maybe you love a certain design style, or want a well-done design that has a certain look.
You can peruse the “best seller” lists or take a chance on one of the featured shops. There are no lack of designs and many ways to find them. The best way to get a task accomplished is to inject some fun into it. Get creative and let inspiration roll. Do you take the time to send a handwritten thank you note? Take a couple seconds to answer the poll. Make a note to yourself to buy a few supplies to be prepared. Use online calendars to set alerts, too. Often, I found that if I let too much time go by, it was much harder to remember to write and send off thanks. Do you write thank you notes? In the internet age? No, I don’t send notes. Thank for your comments, here. I appreciate the fact that you took time from a busy day and read through this article, and that now you are leaving me a comment.
