“Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.” 2 Corinthians 3:17
As Americans, the words freedom and liberty are woven into our collective identity. We use the words in ministry names, business brands and wear them on our tee shirts. Even as we are grateful, we also take it for granted, and assume people are walking in freedom.
Paul wrote in II Corinthians 3 that freedom is where the Holy Spirit is. It goes far beyond any outward condition or circumstance. We can, “with unveiled faces…reflect the Lord’s glory” to people who walk in bondage. This is a work of the Spirit, and as we yield to him we are “transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.” This is the supernatural freedom we preach.
Isaiah prophesied this in chapter 60: “Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you. See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the people, but the Lord rises upon you and his glory appears over you.”
There is a light that emanates from you as you walk in the liberty of Christ, that others can sense. Awareness of this will give you confidence to share the Gospel whenever, wherever you feel the prompting of the Holy Spirit. He has special encounters for us everyday as we walk in his freedom light. Someone needs to be set free and you can lead that one into true liberty.
Your light is far-reaching. Let’s go forward together in his ever-increasing glory.
Magenta is defined as illustrating both passion and compassion. Passion is an intense desire or enthusiasm for something while compassion is sympathetic pity and concern for the sufferings or misfortunes of others. The suffering and death of our Lord Jesus are called the Passion of Christ. But there has never been, nor ever will there be a greater act of compassion. I see this intriguing combination in 21st century women of faith – zealously caring, fearlessly kind. I think magenta is the perfect color to represent Christ in us, the power of US. More on this many-sided color coming soon-
Magenta is the “mystery” color that Johann Wolfgang von Goethe named in his book Theory of Colours, published in 1810. He discovered it hidden between red and violet, so both the first and last color, the ‘alpha and the omega’ on the color spectrum. Red represents Earth, and violet, Heaven. The beginning and the end – Heaven and Earth.
I’m intrigued by the mystery surrounding this complex color, and how it relates to us. I’ll keep studying, so stop back in soon…
What’s in a color?
I need lots of light and color in my life. It affects my energy level. My sense of harmony and balance are affected too, and when my clothes or home accessories don’t “match”, I’m uncomfortable.
Colors are strategically used in advertising to cause us to feel something, to make us want a product or service. Color is how our brains discern objects as our eyes absorb shades of light. Most of all, color is God’s expression in creation. His covenant rainbow is the sun’s white light hitting earth’s atmosphere, each shade then displayed in refracted splendor. It is the promise of the Father projected to the whole wide world.
In choosing colors to represent 21st Century Woman, I have been increasingly drawn to Magenta. You will see lots of the components of Magenta in our communications with you. Its mix of hues is rich and strong. Like the Holy Spirit, this color has boldness and mystery, and we are drawn into its depth. To me, it represents the power of US – the women of God together, changing the world. I will be talking more about Magenta, and the power of US, so check back soon…
