“IN SYNC WITH YOU”
(In Sync)

‘… in sync with you’

Isaiah 51:4-6 MSG (para) “Pay attention, my people. Listen to me, nations. Revelation flows from me. My decisions light up the world. My deliverance arrives on the run, my salvation right on time. I’ll bring justice to the peoples. Even faraway islands will look to me and take hope in my saving power. Look up at the skies, ponder the earth under your feet. My salvation will last forever, my setting-things-right will never be obsolete.”

Do you ever think, ‘why am I on earth?’ Or ‘what am I supposed to do with my life?’ It’s normal to wonder why and what; because we are living for something so much greater than life on earth.

God’s ways are so much bigger than our ways, because He’s God! We can’t fully understand what is going on in His head because we only human. We are smart, just not God smart! God can see the whole world, what’s happened, what’s happening and what will happen, so His knowledge is much more expansive than ours.

And if His knowledge is so big, can you even imagine how much more He is moved by people than we are? His love is enormous! He’s crazy about every single person to ever exist on the earth. EVERYONE!

Knowing that God cares so much, helps us to understand what “my setting-things-right will never be obsolete” means. It means God’s plan has always been, and it will always to be bring people home to His overwhelming love for them.

In Galatians 5:22-23 MSG it says “But what happens when we live God’s way? He brings gifts into our lives, much the same way that fruit appears in an orchard – things like affection for others, exuberance about live, serenity. We develop a willingness to stick with things, a sense of compassion in the heart, and a conviction that a basic holiness permeates thing and people.”

This means that if we are in sync with God, and live His way, He will share some of His knowledge with us. We begin to understand that everyone was made by God for Him to love, and we begin to Love others like He does.

Do you ever go to your iphone to play a song that you just downloaded and see that it isn’t there? Then realize that you haven’t hooked it up to your computer and synced it yet. Just like syncing your phone to your computer for updates and new music, we can sync up to God for updates and new gifts.

Just think of prayer as an iphone to computer connection cable. It gives us power and connects us to the library. Think of software updates as the Word of God. This is where we get the knowledge and understanding to do the things God has for us to do, with the gifts that God has for us to use. And think of new music as the love of God moving you to make a sound – telling people about Jesus – on the earth.

We have this really cool opportunity to sync up with Jesus and live life the way He always wanted us to, side by side, introducing people to Him.
