Presence of Jesus drips from our live as we are in communion with Him.
As He in dwells in us.
Love is a person.
As He is so are we.
We are complete in Christ and in that alone can we see the perfection in ourselves.
It is only in that confidence that we can walk with others self preserved in the knowledge that we have a value beyond our own comprehension.
Our awareness keeps expanding and progressing and we can begin to draw truth and revelation from ourselves and the whole body of the church.
The great encouragement is that all the teaching does not rest solely on any one leader’s shoulders.
It can be amplified a hundred fold coming from the mouths and revelation of many people who would not of themselves call themselves teachers or leaders but who have quiet authenticity.
The new role of leaders is decentralised and becomes that of encouragers and facilitators advancing the concept of faith further and further.
Evidence from those before their eyes will bring many quickly to the same measure of faith.
It is the putting together of all the parts of truth to build the great puzzle from layers of revelation that transforms.
Providing the environment to draw out each precious central piece to construct the entirety in our belief.
God’s grace is enough.
We can rest and drip truth.
Our weakness becomes the portal to truth and power.
No striving necessary.
This becomes the archway of faith.
God protects and provides all that we reach for where He is the source.
It is unprotected when reached for through any other idol.
As portrayed in Daniel 3 when Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego refused to bow down to any other idols only God and they were tested in the fire and were unharmed and the fourth image of Christ was also witnessed in the flames.
There is no sweat in heaven.
We are created to live in God’s rest.
In the fall the first Adam lost that rest and became destined to sweat and toil amidst thorny prickles of sin in the garden.
A curse to be broken when Jesus, the second Adam endured the thorny crown on His brow for our salvation and redemption from sin.
To again find rest in God.
The kingdom life we are heirs to.
God’s gift totally undeserved and unearned by our sweat.
We have no need to drip sweat.
We drip Jesus.
The illustration shows our Holy Spirit filled being dripping, exuding Jesus Christ and bringing His Light to push back the darkness in the World. To bring about the kingdom on earth.
Five scriptures that come to mind:

“Nebuchadnezzar answered and said to them, “Is it true, O Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, that you do not serve my gods or worship the golden image that I have set up?”Daniel 3:14 ESV
“If this be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of your hand, O king.”Daniel 3:17 ESV
