    You Are God’s Minister or Instrument

    If you point these things out to the brothers and sisters, you will be a good minister of Christ Jesus, nourished on the truths of the faith and of the good teaching that you have followed. (1 Timothy 4:6). I learned something recently: that as independent as we think we are, we’re just deceiving ourselves. God designed us to be dependent on other people and our environment. We need each other. We depend on our car to take us from place to place. We depend on our bosses or customers to pay us for work we do. We depend on cooks to make sure we have something to eat. We…

    You Are Complete In Christ

    So you also are complete through your union with Christ, who is the head over every ruler and authority. (Colossians 2:10 – NLT) To be in Christ is a privileged position. We have been declared sons of God through Jesus Christ. We have been declared the righteousness of God through Jesus Christ. We are direct representatives of Jesus Christ Himself here on Earth. Can we fathom such a position? We are sinners declared righteous and handed the keys to God’s kingdom here on Earth. Whatever we loose on Earth is loosed in Heaven and whatever we bind on Earth is bound in Heaven. As Jesus is, so are we. The…

    You Are God’s Witness

    But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. (Acts 1:8) The era where we go and gather in church and wait for sinners to come to us and get saved is over. It is very important that we don’t forsake the assembling of ourselves together, but we need to acknowledge the fact that times and seasons have changed, and the church is being pushed to become what it was always meant to be. The church is not the building, but the people who occupy the…

    You Are God’s Vessel

    And that he might make known the riches of his glory on the vessels of mercy, which he had afore prepared unto glory. (Romans 9:23) Everything I share with you in this series of devotionals are lessons I learned along my own journey of faith. I have had to go through a painful transition from a purely ‘religious’ mindset, to see life and reality from God’s pespective, and it is not what we think; nor can it be discerned by mere common sense and human reasoning. Our identity in Christ extends all the way back to the beginning of time, when man emerged as a living soul from the dust…

    God’s Temple

    Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in your midst? (1 Corinthaisn 3:16) I have been campaigning now for many years to try and get those in my immediate circle to stop saying, “I am going to church.” It is theological incorrect under the new covenant because we are now the living temples of God, not made with hands. We are the church. Until our language begin to change, we will fall short of walking in God’s purpose for our lives because we continue to pursue God externally, when He is within. Our bodies are His temple, and He lives within us. The…

    God’s Friend

    And the Scripture was fulfilled which says, “Abraham believed God, and it was [aaccounted to him for righteousness.” And he was called the friend of God. (James 2:23). I used to struggle with believing God’s Word, especially as it relates to my identity in Christ. I eventually realized that not believing what is said about me in Scripture because it sounds too good to be true, only caused me to assume my identity from a fallen system. This established mental processes that only led me to living way below my potential, and God’s best intentions for me. So, now I choose to believe the Word spoken about me before the foundation of the world,…

    Modeled After Christ

    For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. (Ephesians 2:10) The debate continues: Can a man be like God? Can we be like Jesus in appearance and functionality? Can we do the same work that He did? Can we have the same experiences, and relationship with our heavenly Father? Can we exercise the same power over sickness, death, and nature? Personally, I don’t make a habit out of doubting God’s word. Even when I don’t understand it, I still choose to believe it. I recently had a conversation with a Jehovah’s Witness. The argument was centered around…

    We Belong To God

    Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God! Therefore the world does not know us, because it did not know Him. (1 John 3:1) It is hard to fathom the love of a perfect and holy God for people who seem so vile, corrupt, selfish and unworthy. Even the church has spent a lot of time convincing us of our unworthiness; that we are wretches, nothing but a worm worthy to be squashed, but I am of the opinion that despite our fallenness, and degerated consciousness, we are still very, very important to God, and when He looks at…
