Why has the church majored on submitting to troubles with nothing more than a hope that God will somehow make everything well in the end?
Why have we been taught such a helpless Christianity? Especially when:
Jesus, in John 17:23, prayed that He would be in us and the Father in Him and that we would be made perfect in one
And John wrote: greater is he that is in you than he that is in the world (1John 4:4).
And Paul wrote: he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit. (1Cor.6:17)
And Peter said that we might be partakers of the divine nature (2Pet.1:4).
And Romans 5:17 says that we shall reign in life by one, Jesus Christ.
And 1John 5:4 says that whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith
Is your Christian faith a matter of creeds and doctrines, or are you allowing the very nature of God to dominate your life? Are you just a mouth that claims Christian values, or are you moving from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord (2Cor.3:18).
Just taking it “one day at a time”? Or are you more than conquerors through Him that loved us (Rom.8:37)?
Stand on the Word, and let it rule!
