WE HAVE THE MIND OF CHRIST PART 3

Text: He. 5:8

All who belong to Christ must learn obedience to God, i.e. the act of submitting to the will and commands of God just as Christ did. The learning process involves enduring sufferings brought about by the resolve to obey God. Jesus Christ demonstrated this by the display of rare humility at the face of untoward maltreatment he suffered in the hands of men created by him because he was totally committed to fulfillment of the will of His Father.

WE HAVE THE MIND OF CHRIST PART 2

Text: Phil. 2:1-5; 1Cor. 2:16; Ps 133: 1-3

Those who are in Christ enjoy the encouragement in Christ, comfort of love, fellowship of the Spirit, tenderness and compassion of God and are therefore in a position to share same with others. These are Christians who have the mine of Christ and therefore have had their incurably sick carnal mind renewed and continue to engage the renewal process.

Text: Phil. 2:1-5; 1Cor. 2:16; Ps 133: 1-3

All who are in Christ can be of one mind if they live in obedience to the word of God. Being of one mind fosters unity in the body of Christ and this is a very important because life flows from blessings and blessings flow from unity.

To be in Christ is to be united with Christ as one; a state that is sustained by encouragement in Christ, comfort of love, fellowship of the Spirit, tenderness and compassion enjoyed.

Text: Col. 1:10

In order to walk as Christ walked, a person must be filled by the Holy Spirit even as Christ was filled. If you are living for self and are using God and the Church to help self to be more fulfilled, you are in danger of hell fire.

WALKING AS CHRIST WALKED PART 2

Text: 1Jn. 2:3-6; Jn.3:3-5; Acts 19:1-6; 2:38

To be saved is to be born from above. To enter the kingdom of God, there is the need to be baptized of water and of the Spirit. Like Jesus, every believer must fulfill all righteousness. Only those who enter into the kingdom of God are empowered to overcome sin, to submit to the will of God and succeed in all things that pertain to Christian life. The baptism of the Holy Spirit is a MUST for every believer.

Any one that professes he abides in Christ imposes upon himself/herself the responsibility to walk as Christ walked. To abide is to allow nothing to break an on-going continuous relationship with Christ

RELEASE FROM THE CURSE PART 2

Texts: Gal. 3:13-14; Mt. 28:18; Je.17:5-6; Zch. 5:1-4; Col. 1:13-14

An exchange took place when Christ hung on the cross; He became a curse for us so that the blessings of Abraham may come upon us. Children of God need to gain understanding to identify curse(s) in operation; repent and exercise authority in the name of Jesus to revoke the curses.

Texts: Gal. 3:13-14; Pr. 26:2; Nu. 23:20;

The Bible, from Genesis to Revelation, reveals that obedience remains the basic irreducible minimum requirement of God from His people.

Both curses and blessings are vehicles of supernatural power for evil and good respectively. A curse is an evil or injury that comes upon a person or a nation due to pronouncements as a result of disobedience to a legitimate authority or obedience to illegitimate authority.

Text: Col. 1:12-13; Ep. 5:20

The default position of everyman on earth is darkness. Darkness represents all that is evil and it is governed by the devil. Only those who have encountered Christ and are surrendered to His Lordship are those delivered from the power and dominion of darkness. However, setting aside the divine order by acts of disobedience brings even believers back under the control of satanic influences.

Texts: Gal. 5:11; Ro. 8:32; He.10: 14; Ro. 6:6-7

The cross is the only basis for all of God’s provisions for His redeemed people. The object of satan’s total and irrevocable defeat is the cross, that is why satan perfected the tactics of obscuring the reality of the cross from believers. The cross is also the only source of power for real Christian living.

Text: He. 11:34; 1Cor. 1:25-29

God uses a man who gives up everything of himself in total surrender to Him. Whoever is willing and available, God makes able. God blesses whom He uses. God does this so that no flesh should glory in His presence.

Text: Phil. 2:8: 2Sam. 12:15

Partial obedience is nothing but disobedience. Rebellion is the rejection of God’s legitimate authority and disobedience breed rebellion, an open door to demonic bondages. All our actions carry consequences designed to get us to do the right thing, it is futile to do the wrong thing and pray for the right results.

RUNNING FOR GOLD

Text: Lk. 8:8,15

The principle contained in the parable of sower confronts every believer with a choice of what type of ground to be. The good ground that yields hundredfold depicts an honest heart that hears the word; has understanding to retain the word and so goes on to bring forth fruit with patience. Such a good ground is also diligent to sow the word of God in the heart of others.

Text: 2Pe. 1:1- 10

As believers, virtue (moral excellence) is first on the list of things that we need to add to our faith to avoid spiritual barrenness, unfruitfulness, blindness and forgetfulness of having been cleansed from old sin. These things also keep believers from falling. The power of the Holy Spirit is available to help those who genuinely have the desire to acquire virtue.
