COME OUT FROM AMONG THEM

 
🔊Audio Version with Audio Bible ☞  http://bit.ly/2dhKIUh
 
2 Corinthians 6:17-18 [NKJV]
17 Therefore "Come out from among them And be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, And I will receive you." 18 "I will be a Father to you, And you shall be My sons and daughters, Says the Lord Almighty."


Janose had a robust relationship with God. He related to God like his daddy, and the results of this were evident for all to see. Lange wondered why he did not have a robust relationship with the Lord like Janose did. This made Lange spend a lot of time seeking the Lord and asking why. It wasn’t long before he realized that Janose lived a life separated to God, but he lived a divided life. He wanted the best of both worlds, but Janose wanted only the best of God's kingdom.

Looking at today's Bible text critically, it appears God's acceptance of you is conditional. It appears there is a part you have to play.

God's love for you is unconditional, but the degree of His relationship with you is conditional. Many Christians are not enjoying the evident fatherhood of God in their lives because they have not started to live lives separated unto God alone. God is too big to share you. His grace empowers you to live for Him alone.

Go into today knowing that your life now belongs to the Lord. He has bought you with a price. This also means He is now responsible for your needs and security.

Ask the Lord to help you walk under His Lordship by prioritizing His kingdom and righteousness in your life.
-Pas Abraham SD

YOUR COMPANY MATTERS

 
🔊Audio Version with Audio Bible ☞  http://bit.ly/2dlr7UV

2 Corinthians 6:15 (NKJV)
And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever?


Jake really loved to serve the Lord with his life. But he found it unusually difficult and almost impossible to live a life worthy of his calling in God. He tried to convince himself that God didn’t care about the things he did. But he found that he couldn’t have fellowship with God because of his unholy lifestyle.

One day, he decided he'd had enough with the unending struggles with the flesh. He spent two hours narrating his spiritual ordeal to his pastor. His pastor asked him one question and found out where the problem was. The question was: 'who are your friends?'

The pastor realized that Jake kept constant fellowship with his old unbeliever friends. He even still maintained their old outing schedule.

When a believer constantly mingles with unbelievers, he is exposing his [precious] faith to negative forces that seek to quench it (because unbelief is not benign, it is a toxic force against faith). Because his faith has been weakened through negative communication, he will realize he is unable to overcome the smallest temptations.

As you go into today, ask the Lord to help you fight the good fight of faith and guard your precious faith jealously. Not yet saved? Click ☞ http://bit.ly/1iTOmol

EXPRESSING TRUTH

 
🔊Audio Version☞  http://bit.ly/2d7ALbQ

Ephesians 4:15 [AMP]
Rather, let our lives lovingly express truth. Enfolded in love, let us grow up in every way and in all things into Him Who is the Head, Christ (the Messiah, the Anointed One).


Derek Prince was in the British forces when he first came in contact with Christians whose lives expressed truth. He knew that they had something he did not have, something he could not explain. And this was what pushed him to seek the Lord in desperation.

That great evangelist was converted not because someone preached to him, but because he could see truth in the lives of certain people and wanted to know their God.

Sometime last month, we talked about how Grace and truth came through Jesus Christ (see John 1:17). Grace empowers us to walk in truth.

Today’s Bible text is part of a thought, in it we see that the reason the Lord gave gifts was so that that the church will be edified and grow into the fullness of the stature of Christ. Christians who have reached this will walk this earth full of grace the way Jesus was. They are those who bring light to their world. Their lives will also be full of truth. They will be completely blameless as Jesus was.

It is through the ministry of Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors and teachers that Christians can grow into spiritual maturity. As this happens, they will be able to live lives that lovingly expresses truth; the reality of God.

Go into today knowing that sound teaching and ministry is the key to spiritual growth.

Ask the Lord to lead you to materials and resources that will boost your spiritual growth this season. Not yet saved? Click ☞ http://bit.ly/1iTOmol

GIFTS TO THE BODY


 
🔊Audio Version☞  http://bit.ly/2dnbQAe
Ephesians 4:8, 11 (NET)
8 Therefore it says, “When he ascended on high he captured captives; he gave gifts to men.”
11 It was he who gave some as apostles, some as prophets, some as evangelists, and some as pastors and teachers.


Yesterday, I said God didn’t plan for Christians to receive all their spiritual nutrition from only one source because no one man can have more than one ministry assignment to the body of Christ. We got feedback from different people and it has become necessary to address the question of whether a single person cannot occupy more than one ministry office.

From today's Bible text, we see that if you are an apostle or prophet or evangelist or pastor and teacher, you are a gift to the body of Christ. These are callings that Christians may or may not fulfill. Paul was called to be an apostle. He fulfilled his calling.

Anyone can desire and may receive spiritual gifts he desires. But a ministry calling or office (the ones mentioned above) cannot be received that way. It is a divine eternal ordination.

Spiritual gifts are given to help people fulfill their calling to the body. Please don't confuse a gift with a calling. A calling is an assignment.

From the New Testament, we haven't seen any single person with more than one ministry calling.

An apostle has the grace to operate in several gifts. But his calling is to be an apostle. One would have called Paul a pastor, a teacher, an evangelist, or even a prophet because he operated in gifts corresponding to all these assignments, but his calling was to be an apostle (see 1 Cor 1:1). All he did was in the fulfillment of his calling to be an apostle.

Go into today remembering that your Calling is your assignment in the kingdom. Gifts help you fulfill your assignment.
Ask the Lord to help you fulfill your calling in the kingdom.

THAT WE SHOULD NO LONGER BE CHILDREN

🔊Audio Version☞  http://bit.ly/2cuRLGF
 
Eph 4:14 [NKJV]
That we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting


Also Read Eph 4:11-14

When Mrs. Ekubo realized that she was still a baby in the faith, she had been a Christian for over 15 years. The problem has been that since the day she believed, she had only received from the ministry of her pastor and no one else. She couldn’t grow into the fullness of Christ because her spirit wasn’t feeding on a balanced spiritual diet.

According to God's plan, every Christian will have to receive from the ministry of at least two people for him to grow into the fullness of Christ.

One person usually occupies a single ministry office in the kingdom. He is either an apostle, a pastor and teacher, a prophet, or an evangelist. He cannot be two of these at the same time. But you would need to receive from all the dimensions [of Christ's gift] at some point in your walk with God.

We see from today's Bible text that Apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachers, were given to equip and edify the church so that Christians can grow from being children tossed to and fro by every wind of doctrine. One sign that a person has not really grown spiritually is that he will still be tossed to and fro by every wind of doctrine.

Go into today knowing that God did not plan for you to receive all your spiritual nutrition from one source. One way you can gain from someone's ministry is by reading his book or listening to his tape. Not yet saved? Click ☞ http://bit.ly/1iTOmol

UNITY OF FAITH

 
🔊Audio Version☞  http://bit.ly/2d9kZiu
 
Ephesians 4:13 [AMP]
Until we all attain oneness in the faith and in the comprehension of the knowledge of the Son of God, that at really mature manhood (the completeness of personality which is nothing less than the standard height of Christ's own perfection), the measure of the stature of the fullness of the Christ and the completeness found in Him.

Lara and Bidemi were friends, but their understanding of the faith was very different. And because of this, they would argue. Lara believed that preachers should not call out sins and insist that people leave them, that Christianity is about faith and not works, that preachers who called out sins were not preaching the real gospel. On the other hand, Bidemi believed that faith without works is dead. That if a person claims to be saved, it should show in his lifestyle. That if his salvation doesn’t show in his lifestyle, it only proves that he has not been truly saved. Therefore preachers should call out sins and let people understand what is expected. Because of these divergent views and many more like it, Bedemi and Lara could never achieve unity of the faith.

We have created niches and segments in the body of Christ because of varying understanding of the faith. One sign of spiritual infancy is narrow mindedness and not having the ability to accept that someone who does not see the faith the way you see it is also serving and worshiping God, even though he believes and professes Christ as Lord and savior.

Go into today knowing that as we all grow into the fullness of Christ, we will become more united, open hearted and closed mouthed (un-judgmental). Ask the Lord to help you grow into the fullness of Christ. Not yet saved? Click ☞ http://bit.ly/1iTOmol

GIFTS AND CALLING 2



 
🔊Audio Version☞  http://bit.ly/2cWJbUM

Ephesians 4:12 [AMP]
His intention was the perfecting and the full equipping of the saints (His consecrated people),  the work of ministering toward building up Christ's body (the church). 

We see in today's Bible text that the reason Jesus gave gifts to the body (the Church) was because he wanted the saints to be fully equipped and made perfect. Perfection is the degree to which we are conformed to the image and stature of Christ.

People with the callings to be Apostles, prophets, Evangelists, Pastors and teachers, are given to the body (the Church) for the edification of the body. They are the established channels through which the body receives from the Lord directly.

The purpose of your calling is not for personal edification [and enrichment]; it is for the edification of the body. If you have a gift and your goal is not to edify the body with it, you will end up dividing the body with it.

There are many gifts (people) that have not started walking in their calling because they have not started to edify the body. They are only directly edifying themselves and dividing the body as a result.

If you have gifts corresponding to the calling in the kingdom. The purpose of your gift is for the edification of the body.

Go into today knowing that God's gifts in your life are to help you fulfill His calling to build up the church.

Pray that the Lord will help you be a profitable servant. That you will not cooperate with Satan to hide your gift.

ADVANCING GOD'S KINGDOM IN THIS WORLD 3



 
🔊Audio Version☞  http://bit.ly/2daTAhU
 
Romans 14:17 [AMP]
The kingdom of God is not a matter of food and drink, but instead it is righteousness (that state which makes a person acceptable to God) and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.


(Continued)
Now, what Daramola did had far reaching spiritual consequences, even though it didn’t appear she was doing much spiritual kingdom work. But she actually displaced territorial principalities with her spiritual and physical authority.

You see, whenever it appears that the people in a territory are given to certain kinds of iniquity, it is influenced by the spiritual principality or principalities governing the heaven (spirit realm) above that territory. If the people in a territory seem to be given to corruption and greed, it is because of the spiritual principalities governing the territory.

It takes a kingdom prince to displace a demonic prince. Christians are princes in God’s kingdom. But just as in the physical, there is ranking in the kingdom of God. Those who are great in the kingdom of God are those who have walked consistently with God in obedience and faithfulness, and have grown in God’s might. These are those who displace strong territorial spirits and enthrone the kingdom of Christ in territories.

Displacing rooted unrighteousness and corruption in any territory is more spiritual than physical. If you can successfully do so physically, it means you have successfully displaced the powers spiritually responsible. The potential spiritual power a physical ruler has over his territory is great. That is why the devil contends to control those in authority.

Go into today knowing that if God appoints you as a physical prince over a territory, it is because he has given you grace to displace the spiritual demonic prince there. Ask the Lord to help you to be faithful in the work He has entrusted you for this season.

ADVANCING THE KINGDOM IN THIS WORLD 2

 
🔊Audio Version☞  http://bit.ly/2cQ8x4X
 
Romans 14:17 [AMP]
The kingdom of God is not a matter of food and drink, but instead it is righteousness (that state which makes a person acceptable to God) and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.


Because of her very influential and powerful political office, Daramola knew she could greatly advance the cause of God's kingdom and righteousness. She knew that Insisting that everyone under her prays Christian prayers is not the way to advance the kingdom, except you are led to do so.

As a kingdom agent of righteousness, Daramola made sure that the many government organizations under her influence were rid of all traces of corruption. She did this because she understood the principle of righteousness and prosperity (Prov 14:34), and she herself was blameless.

The next thing she did was to instill justice and equity. She did this because she realized this was the key to lasting peace in any society. She fought for pensioners who had no one to fight for them in the former corrupt system.

Thirdly, she went out of her way to make the people happy and contented. She introduced programs to better the lives of the lower class in the society. She did all these while excellently executing other administrative duties.

Even though Daramola didn’t do anything that seemed spiritual to many, her tenure advanced the kingdom of God in that territory greatly.

Tomorrow, we shall look at the spiritual implications of the things she did.

Go into today knowing that righteousness is a product of the advancement of God’s kingdom. And unrighteousness and corruption is a product of the advancement of darkness. Ask the Lord to empower you to be an agent of righteousness. Not yet saved? Click ☞ http://bit.ly/1iTOmol
