Are You In “Affiliation” or Relationship With Jesus Christ?

Romans 12:2: Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

Ephesians 2:6: For he raised us from the dead along with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ Jesus.

Hosea 4:6: My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge; because you have rejected knowledge, I reject you from being a priest to me. And since you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.

It’s easy to claim an affiliation with “Christ” as a convenience. It is another thing to live and walk out a life that emulates His teachings, His principles, His grace, His mercy, His sacrifice, and His love.

Doing the latter in concert with being led by God’s Holy Spirit is the catalyst for exponential, spiritual growth and setting up an atmosphere for those that truly walk in the admonition of the Lord to affect the change in the hearts of those that God places directly in our paths that may not know Him and are in need of salvation or for those that are searching for a word in due season from Him.

Either way we are made for a special, specific, and perfect purpose and just having an affiliation with Christ does not grant just anyone access to the “keys of the Kingdom” like those who have a true, meaningful relationship with Jesus who are “Sons and Daughters-of-God) and co-heirs to the throne that will reign with Him for all eternity.

We as brothers and sisters-in-Christ have access to all of the wisdom, all of the love, all of the knowledge of the One who created all things yet too many of us allow the power of God that lies within us to stay dormant and unused.

Choose today to tap into the resource that is the Holy Spirit and allow Him to light that flame in your heart that can change your family, your neighborhood, your city, your county, your state, this nation, and the world.

We must stop allowing the distractions of this world to hinder us from our mandate to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the nations and we must stop the destruction of the body-of-Christ due to the lack of knowledge that exists in it today not by anything that God has or has not done but because of the laziness, the ignorance, and the apathy that exists as a far too prominent mindset of today’s church.

God is looking for a “few, good men (and women)” to obediently follow the vision that He has placed into their hearts and His eye is on YOU today!

Will you dare take up the challenge?

Will you dare to be as mighty as He has declared you to be today?

Will you who have been reborn into the royal lineage of Jesus Christ dare to rise up and assume the duties that have been assigned to you as a Prince/Princess of the King and Creator of all that has ever existed?

He loves you today! He smiles when He thinks of you!

He has great and wonderful plans in store for you and He loves you wholeheartedly with an unabashed and unashamed love that is awesome and eternal; so walk in it, live in it, and pass it on to those that surround you so that they too will know how much He loves them.

By the hand of a servant of the Lord most High,
