Daily Meditations – Monday, June 24, 2013

John 1:16 – And of his fulness have all we received and grace for grace.

Most Christians believe God can do anything but experience very little. They believe that God can release His power in answer to prayer, but whether something comes to pass or not depends on their performance (ie. being holy, speaking right, studying the word. tithing, avoiding strife, etc).
This view short-circuits God’s power because their focus is on what they need to do instead of what Christ has already done. They think God’s power is out there somewhere, and they must do things in order to obtain it!

The truth is, when we were born again, God put His power, anointing, victory, joy, peace — everything — in us in abundance. The only reason they weren’t manifest in our soul and body is our unrenewed mind.

Affirmation

I refuse to look to the physical realm…..instead I look at and affirm the words of Christ until they dwell richly in my soul.

Philemon 1:6 – I pray that you may be active in sharing your faith, so that you will have a full understanding of every good thing we have in Christ.

IN LUKE CHAPTER 6, JESUS TELLS THE MAN WITH THE WITHERED ARM TO STRETCH IT OUT. THIS MAN’S ARM WAS ATROPHIED AND JUST HANGING DOWN AT HIS SIDE. THE RIGHT ARM OF THE CHURCH – OUTREACH – IS WITHERED.

THIS MAN HAD A WITHERED ARM BECAUSE OF LACK OF USE. BUT THE MOMENT HE MOVED IS ARM IN OBEDIENCE TO REACH OUT, IT BECAME FULLY FUNCTIONING!

THE MIRACLE THAT HAPPENED TO THE MAN WITH THE WITHERED ARM DIDN’T HAPPEN UNTIL HE STRETCHED OUT HIS ARM! IT IS THE SAME WITH US. WE WON’T SEE OUR MIRACLE UNTIL WE STRETCH OUT OUR ARM – THE ARM OF OUTREACH.

CHRISTIANS WHO ARE NOT ACTIVELY SHARING THE JOY OF THEIR SALVATION ARE LOSING THE JOY OF THEIR SALVATION.

“To be a soul winner is the happiest thing in the world. With every soul you bring to Christ, you get a new Heaven upon earth.” – C. H. Spurgeon
