Flap your wings

13th September--Thought 4 the Week:

For those of you that went to BURN last Friday you will recall that we were challenged to “flap our wings.” You see, if Christians were birds, most of us would think we are chickens. We live our Christian life in church (our cage) and never realize what the world out there is like. God didn’t intend for us to be chickens, He intended that we are eagles. He wants us to flap our wings, and enjoy the freedom to soar that He has given us. When we are up there soaring, we see life from a different perspective and come to realize our purposes much more than when we are cooped up in a cage thinking we are chickens. So how do we escape the cage? First we need to be prepared to take a few risks, maybe even be laughed at. The other chickens will think you are nuts for going hard for God, worshipping Him with all your heart and actually obeying His voice when you hear it. If you want to flap your wings and experience freedom & peace in your heart then don’t let others lock you up or hold power over you. Be the eagle that you were created to be, and live your life with no regrets. 1 Corinthians 15:58 is the verse to check out this week.
