Jesus Has Saved Us

John 3:17
For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.

Through Jesus Christ we have been saved. The word saved is defined as rescued, preserved, healed, restored, delivered, made well. All of this is a part of God’s salvation package. To receive what we have available to us we must by faith see these things as already ours, for in the eyes of God they are.

For example when someone today receives new life by accepting Jesus into their heart they become born again. But the moment they did so is not when salvation was provided by God, it was already available, for 2,000 years ago Jesus gave His life for us. They just chose to receive what God said was already done. So it is with all we have in this salvation package. We must see it as already ours, taking it by faith, and not something God is going to do.

Take time to meditate on the promises you have been given in Christ Jesus until that Word get’s in you. Continually speak God’s Word over your life thanking God that you are healed, blessed, and delivered, because His Word says you already are, not going to be. Once the Word comes alive in you, faith becomes active and you can have the manifestation of what Christ has already provided for you.

Our Teacher The Holy Spirit

1 John 2:27
But you have received the Holy Spirit, and he lives within you, so you don’t need anyone to teach you what is true. For the Spirit teaches you everything you need to know, and what he teaches is true—it is not a lie. So just as he has taught you, remain in fellowship with Christ.

The Holy Spirit is the One who helps us to get revelation of the things of God in our heart. When revelation comes faith is there. It’s like walking into a dark room not being able to see the way out and then the Holy Spirit flips the light switch on. Once that happens you can see the way to go and act upon the Word of God.

A vital key in receiving this revelation is in how we read and listen to the teaching of God’s Word. Whether reading or hearing the Word taught, you must first recognize it is God speaking to you. It is not man’s words but God’s, for all scripture is given by inspiration of God. Secondly you must give your full attention to God’s Word and not become distracted with other things. You must pay close attention to what you are hearing.

Third you must learn to take verses that speak of who you are and what you have and declare them daily. Faith grows in the atmosphere of the spoken Word. Finally put what you know into practice, for you deceive yourself if you are a hearer and not a doer of the Word of God. Put these truths into practice and His Word will become alive in you by the Holy Spirit.

God Is Light Not Darkness

1 John 1:5
This is the message which we have heard from Him and declare to you, that God is light and in Him is no darkness at all.

Have you ever had someone accuse you of something you have not done? I am sure we have all experienced this in our lives. Did you know God has been accused of many things He has never done? Because of ignorance of the Word of God, and for others who do not know how to walk by faith and don’t see the results God’s Word promises, they falsely accuse God of things that are not true. For example, they may say God does not heal everyone, or they blame God for the death of a young person saying that God took them because He needed another angel in heaven.

First of all healing is for everyone as scripture clearly teaches in Acts 10:38, that Jesus went about healing all, but not all know how to receive it. God has also promised us long life, so to refer to someone who is young that God took them is also contrary to the Word of God. God is light, and there is no darkness in Him. The works of darkness are not of God, they are of the evil one. God has come to give us LIFE, and that more abundantly, it is the devil who comes to steal, kill, and destroy.

The devil wants you to believe these lies about God, because then he can keep you from receiving what God has for you. The greatest truth to remember about our heavenly Father comes from Jesus. Jesus said, “If you have seen me, you have seen the Father.” Jesus modeled the Father to us. Jesus never did anything that was of the works of darkness. Don’t fall for these lies about God. As James 1:17 tells us, all good gifts come from the Father above, and He does not change for He is light, and there is no darkness in Him.

We Are The Fragrance of Christ

2 Corinthians 2:15
For we are a fragrance of Christ to God among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing;…

Before salvation we had the smell of death, but in Christ we now have the fragrance of new life. This fragrance is the love of God. When you are born again that love is poured out into your heart, your new spirit man. Walking in God’s love is a choice we make every day. It is a choice we make to treat others the way that you would want to be treated, no matter how people treat you.

When you are walking in love you are walking with God, for God is love. But when you choose not to walk in the love of God you are not walking with Him. This takes you out from under God’s protection, and you can fall prey to the ways and the works of satan. But when you choose to walk in love you are not only protected from the works of darkness, you put off the fragrance of Christ, living as He lived.

People will take notice because you do not look like nor act like the world. This love is not an emotion, but revealed through actions and words. You simply choose to show God’s love no matter how you feel, for that love is in every believer and is manifest as we choose to follow the way of God’s love. As we walk in love we can draw others out of the smell of death, and bring them into new life, and a new way of living through the fragrance of God’s love.

We Are Stronger When Connected

Ephesians 4:16
He makes the whole body fit together and unites it through the support of every joint. As each and every part does its job, he makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love.

It is from God that we are provided with His gifts that knit us together and strengthen us as a body. When we walk in gratitude for what Christ has done for us, we will desire to fulfill our role within the church body we are a part of. Finding our place in the body is of great importance. In using our gifts within the body, we are helping to build the church in reaching more people and helping one another to become a disciple of Jesus Christ.

This is why every born-again believer is to find their shepherd and get connected to a local church family. Not doing so makes us weaker, and it hinders the body of Christ in fulfilling its purpose of reaching people with the gospel. If we are not connected to a local church body by finding our shepherd, we are not fulfilling one of our primary purposes as the body of Christ. In fulfilling our part of the body, it also helps us become stronger against the attacks of the enemy.

Scripture teaches us that our enemy goes after stragglers, those who are isolated from the body of Christ. But when you become knit together with a body by helping to do the work not just sitting in church, you have others around you to help strengthen you, for iron sharpens iron. Get connected by being involved with the local church body God has called you to by finding your shepherd. Be faithful to Jesus in doing your part, and it will bring growth to the body, and bring a great strength to your life.

Boldly To The Throne

Hebrews 10:19
Therefore, brethren, since we have confidence to enter the holy place by the blood of Jesus,…

Here we see the primary reason that Jesus shed His blood for us so that we could once again approach God unashamed, and have fellowship with Him. The enmity that stood between God and man was removed by the blood Jesus shed for us. Once you are born again you now have complete access to the Father. Take time to fellowship with God so that you can develop an intimate relationship with Him for He has everything you need.

One of the easiest ways to approach God is spending time in God’s Word. The key is taking time to listen, giving God your full attention. God will speak to you through His Word if you will listen. You also need to sit under the teaching of God’s Word, but again you must listen with all your heart and not get distracted. Jesus said take heed how you hear. For example, if someone was talking to you but you are focused on something else, you are not going to hear what they are saying. So it is with our fellowship with God.

We also approach God through prayer. We should develop in prayer where we can learn how to quite our mind, and hear God reveal things to our spirit man. God is a spirit, and He bears witness with our spirit. Those who do will find answers, and their relationship with the Father will flourish and grow. The door is open, and your heavenly Father awaits to fellowship with you. Take time to draw near to Him and He will draw near to you. You will be glad you did.
