Matthew 12:28 – “If I cast out demons by the Spirit of God, surely the kingdom of God has come upon you.”
The unseen world has influence over the visible.
The Kingdom is here and now.
We must acknowledge that it’s in the invisible realm.
The enemy’s attempt to anchor my affections to the things that are visible is easily resisted when our heart is aware of the presence of the kingdom of God.
Just as Jesus worked only through the Spirit of God, we need to do likewise as His agents.
Psalms 103:19 – “The Lord has established His throne in the heavens, and His kingdom rules over all.”
Philippians 3:12 – “But I keep going on, trying to grasp that purpose for which Christ Jesus grasped me.”
I DO NOT WANT TO JUST GIVE MENTAL ASSENT TO CHRISTIAN DOCTRINE.
I WANT TO SEE, HAVE CONTACT WITH AND LIVE IN THE EXPERIENCED REALITY OF CHRIST’S ACTUAL PRESENCE.
I WANT TO PRESS INTO GOD TO LAY HOLD OF THE PURPOSE FOR WHICH CHRIST JESUS HAS SAVED ME AND WANTS ME TO BE.
Psalm 63:1 – “O God, You are my God, earnestly will I seek You: my inner self thirsts for You, my flesh longs and is faint for You, in a dry and weary land where no water is.”
“You should teach people who you can trust the things you and many other have heard me say. Then they will be able to teach others.” – 2 Timothy 2:2
The true success of our ministry to others will be by how it brought forth the formation of Christ within the person God has given us to DISCIPLE.
Church members need to be encouraged to “think bigger.” They need to see themselves as ministers to their fellow-man.
The Christian life is more than just commitment to Christ; it includes a commitment to other Christians.
We need to rise up and release worship, intercession, and a song to the Lord to usher in an awakening to those floundering who need to be DISCIPLED (by us) into a higher truth.
