WORD FOR THE WEEK

IT’S TIME TO LIVE THE LIFE!

Text: Romans 6:4
Therefore we were buried
with him through baptism
into death, that as Christ
was raised from the dead
by the glory of the Father,
even so we also should
walk in newness of life. “

WHAT LIFE?
It’s time to live the life!
But what life? The heavenly life. The life you are born again to live. The kind of life God sent Jesus (the Word) to model for us here on earth.

That’s what 1John 2:6 is talking about :
Anyone who claims to be intimate with God ( born again), ought also to live as Christ lived.” – MSG.

The question is, what kind of life did Jesus live?
* John 10:30 –” I and my father are one… “
* John 8:29 – ” for I do always the things that please him. ”
* John 5:30 – ” I can of my own self do nothing… I do not seek my own will but the will of the Father who sent me. “
* John 5:19 – “… the son can do nothing of himself but what he sees the Father do, for whatever he does, the son also does in like manner. ”

WHY ARE YOU BORN AGAIN?
¤ To become a new creation – 2Corinthians 5:17-18.
¤ To become a son of God – John 1:12-13
¤ To become a partake if God’s divine nature; to participate in the God life – 2Peter 1:3-4.
¤ To become as he (Jesus) is now in heaven – 1John 4:17.
¤ To enter into God’s class – Jon 3:3-8.
¤ To imbibe the culture, values, nature, principles, character, mindset, attitude And lifestyle of heaven, so as to advertise it on earth; literally colonizing people with it wherever you are found.
And much, much more…

NOT TO CHASE AFTER THINGS!
We are not born again to live ostentatious lives and chase after positions or
the same things the people of this world are chasing after. No!
Neither did we become new creations to continue living the old life of sin and enormity with God. No!

What does God expect of us?
* To seek first his kingdom and the right ways of doing things in the kingdom – Matthew 6:33.
* To live a life of the Spirit and the Word – John 4:23-24; Romans 8:6-8; Galatians 5:6, 16.
* To pursue after divine purpose, not your own desires and ambitions – John 9:4; John 4:34; Jeremiah 1:5.

WORK AT IT!
Nothing just happens in this life. You must work at it. It’s time to begin to live the life that will give back to God and humanity the profit of his investments in you (his new creation, his special treasure).
It’s time to live the life – the new life in Christ! You cannot afford to be a bad investment for God. Be determined that your life will give him full joy. It’s not about you at all!

WORD FOR TODAY

FREEDOM FROM SIN CONSCIOUSNESS

image

Sin-consciousness is a weight that will never allow any Christian to enjoy the full riches and glory of the new life in Christ! It chokes the mind of Christ in you – ” But you have the mind of Christ. ” – 1Corinthians 2:16.
And you need the mind of Christ to live as Christ lived on this earth – 1John 2:6

Christianity is a calling to live the same kind of life that Jesus Christ lived when he was on this same earth – fully advertising the God that men could not know nor see – Colossians 1:15

RIGHTEOUSNESS -CONSCIOUSNESS
Operating with the mindset of the just demands that you walk constantly in
righteousness-consciousness.
However, you can’t keep hearing preaching on sin and live free of sinconsciousness. It is only teachings on righteousness (the Gospel of Christ -Romans 1:16) that will wake up your spirit man to righteousness consciousness.
God has made us righteous so we can live free of sin and think, talk and behave like him – even while still in our humananity.

RIGHTEOUSNESS IS…
Righteousness is the rightness of God in your spirit that empowers you to live like God here on earth – on his behalf. For instance, righteousness cannot sin!
You walk in that consciousness and sin can never make you dance to its tune anymore. You are the righteousness of God in Christ ( 2Corinthuans 5:17). Can God sin?

INSTRUCTION IN RIGHTEOUSNESS
All scripture is given… for  instruction in righteousness… 2Timothy 3:15-16.
God has given you his Word (God’s law for free men) to give you a proper education on righteousness and what it demands of you,; and also to train and equip your heart with the wisdom required to practice a lifestyle of righteousness without struggles.

Friend, you can live strong and powerful! You can live like royalty! You can truly live the Christian life effortlessly!
(Romans 8:1-13)
Note that you don’t grow in righteousness, neither can you add anything to it! It is the righteousness of God – perfect and complete – he chose to impart it to you.

WORD FOR THE WEEK

STOP PUSHING!
Text : Ecclesiastes 10:15

” The Labour of the
foolish wearies them.
For they do not even
know how to go to
the city. “

LIFE IS BUSINESS!
Life is the greatest business on earth. Yet many are not giving it their best.
Just like any business, life gives back to you what you put into it.

THE BEST…
The best you can give to life is yourself. But not your anyhow self; not your mediocre self, but your quality self – the best you can be.
This, however, requires training. And you can only be as good as the person that trains you –
Luke 6:40 ” A disciple is not above his teacher, but everyone who is perfectly trained will be like his teacher.”

WORD-TRAINED
God is the author and finisher of your life and destiny. No one knows the plan and purpose he has for you more or better than him – see Jeremiah 29:11; Jeremiah 1:5.

So the greatest or best training you can get, to be the best you can be to the business of your life, can only be given by God.

SUBMIT TO GOD
Many are not willing to submit themselves to God, yet they want a great life from him.
What God uses to shape you into the man or woman for the business of your life is his Word – see Joshua 1:8; Ezekiel 31:3-9; Proverbs 24:3-5, 13-14.

When you are a Word-made, Word-formed and Word-trained person, then you’re in a position to give your best to your life and purpose on earth – touching lives, make maximum impact, and able to leave a legacy for generations coming after you!

Friend, it’s time to recover yourself from whatever you have given yourself to more than God! Your life will always reflect, advertise what you have given yourself to…

For further studies read:
Hebrews 6:7; Hoses 14:5-6; 1Samuel 2:12; Luke 2:52, 80; Acts 6:4-7.

WORD FOR THE WEEK

THE WONDERS OF HIS PRESENCE! – PT 1

Text : Exodus 33 :12-17
” My presence will go
with you, and I will
give you rest… “
” I myself will go with you and give you success… ” -TLB.

image

God’s presence is a confirmation if his favor and grace upon a man’s life.
Let’s explore the scriptures and see the wonders of God’s presence in a man (or a people’s) life…

It makes the difference

How else will they know that we are special and distinct from all other people on the earth… ” – Exodus 33:16 (NLT);
Read also : Acts 2:22; Exodus 11:6-7; Exodus 14:19-20; Mark 1:22.

♡ It commands God’s                 blessing

” And the Lord blessed the house if Obededom and all that he had… ” 2Samuel 6:7-12
The Lord has blessed the house of Obededom and all that belongs to him because of the Ark of God… ” -v12 Read also:1Chronicles13:4-14.

♡ It makes a man so rich and great (even in a land of famine)!

Do not go down to Egypt… dwell in this land and I will be with you and bless you…
And Isaac dwelt in Gerar… and the Lord blessed him. The man began to prosper, and continued to prosper, until he became very prosperous… ” – Genesis 26:1-14.
… he became a rich man, and his wealth only continued to grow… ” – v12 (NLT).

♡ It gave a slave boy so much success!
(So much success that took him from the pit (where his brothers threw him into to die) to the palace; and the fulfilment of his dreams.

“The Lord was with Joseph and he was a successful man… and made all he did to prosper in his hand… “
– Genesis 39:2-6, 21, 23.
Even in prison... “because the Lord was with him; and whatever he did, the Lord made it prosper. “
