Living Through Christ

I have no greater joy than this, to hear that my children are walking in the truth.

3 John 1:4 NRSV

Wives, be subject to your husbands, as is fitting in the Lord.

Husbands, love your wives and never treat them harshly.

Colossians 3:18‭-‬19 NRSV

Whoever does not love does not know God, for God is love. God’s love was revealed among us in this way: God sent his only Son into the world so that we might live through him.

1 John 4:8‭-‬9 NRSV

Anyone can quote Scripture.

It’s quite another thing to live your life according to its teachings.

Let everything you say and do be done in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Whatever you do, do it unto God who is your real master.

What’s God doing these days?

He is cleansing His Temple.

He is purifying His People unto Himself.

He is calling us to live holy lives of faithfulness, purity and integrity.

Sounds fun don’t it?

Well actually it is.

Living with God, for God, by God’s grace is the adventure of a lifetime.

Before Jesus was crucified once and for all, He told us to pick up our crosses and die daily to our carnal desires.

A good leader will never ask you to do something that they haven’t done.

Jesus was crucified from before the foundations of the world.

He was dead to sin from the beginning.

Sin had no power over Him.

And now, through Him, we are free to walk in faith, in truth, freed from the power of sin.

Why do I repeat the Gospel in almost every post and every conversation?

Because it has power.

The truth sets us free.

But we need to believe it.

And confess it with our mouths.

I hear that repetition is a good way to teach.

If we’re going to counteract the brainwashing of the world, we best stand our ground and speak the truth.

Bearing all things.

Enduring all things.

Jesus Christ is the Love of God made manifest.

And He wants to manifest His Love and Spirit in you and through you.

How do you walk in healings, deliverance, soul winning, miracles, signs and wonders?

It’s easy.

Walk in Christ’s Love.

All the fruits.

All the manifestations.

They are the evidence of His invisible presence in your mortal body.

Focus on loving God with an undivided heart.

Focus on loving your neighbor with grace and mercy.

There is only one fair judge.

And He laid His life down for sinners.

The death sentence was overturned.

Will you accept the Judge’s ruling?

Or do you not believe in the power of precedent?

Jesus declares us free.

So live and love like free people.

Dead to sin.

Rise up again.

To life eternal.

In Christ Jesus.

Amen.
