One Thing 6/7/17
Eph. 1: 22 And He put all things in subjection under His feet, and gave Him as head over all things to the church, 23 which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all.
The church is the fullness of Christ who fills all and in all. I’ve put all my eggs in this one basket; to realize and release the Fulness of Jesus in holiness and power in and through me personally, and in and through the lives of those God gives me the opportunity to influence. Our interior lives, and out impact on others should look like the life that Jesus lived then, lived now in and through us. There is no option, or alternative. The life that Jesus lives in fullness is the only normal Christian life. There is no plan B. Jesus said “I came that you might have life and have it more abundantly.” Rom. 5:17, says, “For if by the transgressions of the one (Adam) death reigned through the one; much more those who receive the abundance of of grace, and the gift of righteousness, shall reign in life through the one Christ Jesus.” Because Jesus came, we can live His abundant life of reigning in this fallen world. Don’t lower the standard of His life in your life to fit your experience; instead fit your experience into the standard of His life. Have a vision for living and ministering in the realm of overcoming the impossible. That is the grande adventure we are called to. Paul prayed that the eyes of our hearts would be open to know (experience) the hope of His calling, and the glorious riches of His inheritance in our lives. Your inheritance is His inheritance. The very fullness of Jesus is your birthright. You will never need more than that; and you need never settle for anything less.
