You are to be The Presence

metropolitananthonybloom“This day is blessed by God, it is God’s own and now let us go into it.  You walk in this day as God’s own messenger; whomever you meet, you meet in God’s own way.  You are there to be the presence of the Lord God, the presence of Christ, the presence of the Spirit, the presence of the Gospel — this is your function of this particular day.  God has never said that when you walk into a situation in His own Name, He will be crucified and you will be the risen one.  You must be prepared to walk into situations, one after the other, in God’s name, to walk as the Son of God has done: in humiliation and humility, in truth and ready to be persecuted…”
