We are the body of Christ. We are here to do His will.
He HAS given us all the tools to do His will. He has given us all authority and power to do what He sent us to do. And hath put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church. (Eph 1:22) And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning…or it pleased the Father that in him should all fullness dwell. (Col 1:18-19)
We are the body of Christ and we have the fullness of God in US! We have the Holy Spirit in US! We are IN Jesus. And Jesus …spake… All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. You go therefore…Teaching them and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. (Matt 28:18,20) And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature…And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. We are IN Jesus and all things have been given to Him, so all things are ours. Everything that belongs to Jesus is ours because we are IN Him, The fullness of God is in us.
… AND they went forth, and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. (Mark 16:15-18)
As thou hast sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. (John 17:18)
Now don’t think “who, me?” Yes, YOU are the Righteousness of God and that is a gift. That gift is what gives you the right and power to reign in life through Jesus. YOU are the flesh Jesus lives in today. YOU are the only Jesus people will see.
Every Christian is God’s body on earth to do His will.
Look at the next two scriptures and claim them as your own.
…they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ. (Rom 5:17) grace reign through righteousness (Rom 5:21)
And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou YOU shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. (Matt 16:19)
Whatsoever ye shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever ye shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. (Matt 18:18)
Binding and Loosening means anything and whatever we allow on earth and in our lives, God allows. (Matt 18:18)
He has given us all authority over all the earth. (Gen 1:26) There is no time in the Kingdom of God. God already provided all you will ever need, even before you were born. Just like an expecting mother gets everything ready for her unborn child, God prepared everything you would need for life and godliness. According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness. (2 Pet 1:3) Jesus proves He is alive today by doing the same things He did when He walked the earth. Now He does them through you and me
He has given us an instruction manual and a teacher to help us understand and apply what He freely has given us.
Father I pray today that you open the eyes of understanding so that anyone reading my post has understanding on WHAT they have been given by you. In Jesus name.
If you were to die tonight, do you know where you would go? The Bible says all have sinned and the result of sin is death. But WHOEVER calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. I am a “whoever,” and so are you. Call on the name of Jesus right now. “Father God, I accept the free gift of Jesus and make Him Lord of my life. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit and show me how much you love me. In Jesus’ name.”
