Your Word for 12 June 2024

Ephesians 3:20
‘Now to Him Who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us.’

06 Elders Casting Crowns
When we discover this we discover a great treasure and God takes delight in us when we come to this reality.

1 Corinthians 1:31 “Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord.”
Galatians 6:14 ‘May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ!’

There is no one in heaven who can say “I have done well!’ Only God can say the words ‘Well done! Good and faithful servant!’  Have you ever laid down your crowns (your achievements and successes) acknowledging it was all by His grace?
We don’t go to heaven to learn these things, we learn them here. Heaven will just be the ultimate experience of this practice of laying down our crowns.  Jesus Christ Himself laid down His crown for us and took on a crown of thorns, how much more should we not be ready to lay down our crowns for Him.
When we take this humble approach it has a unifying effect. All the 24 Elders laid down their crowns.  No one held on to anything, they all laid it all down and unity prevailed.  Do you want unity? Take the low road.  It is at the foot of the cross that rivalries and dissention are rendered powerless.  The end product was worship.  The most intense and dedicated worship.
