Awake to Righteousness

24 Jan

Yes, it is true all of us have fallen short of the Glory of the Lord, however that is one of the things that the Lord Jesus came to permanently fix. Hallelujah!!!

  Considering, if we really weren’t worthy Heaven would not have paid such a high price to have Jesus make a way possible for us to be reconciled with the Lord through the horrific sufferings He went through on that cross.

We read in, 2 Corinthians 5:17,” Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new”.

It is in vain if anyone profess a relationship with Christ whilst they are unchanged in their heart. Another reason that modern message of grace on steroids is so problematic, because it is basically ending up giving people the false idea that they can keep willfully sinning and still get into Heaven. However the wages of sin is death according to Romans 6:23. Allow me to continue sharing here from 2 Corinthians 5:18,” And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation; 19 To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation”.

In other words God is in Christ reconciling people to Himself, how amazing and awesome is this good news!

20 “Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God.21 For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him”.

You know, I believe we need to take this very seriously because people’s life depend on this.

In this world it seems because of the havoc that has been launched against us by the devil since the fall of Adam this life can be so discouraging at times. Because this life is not where our hope comes from. It is only in Christ we have our hope and we need to share that hope with this fallen world.

We read in 1 Corinthians 15 :34,Awake to righteousness, and sin not; for some have not the knowledge of God: I speak this to your shame.”

There are so many people all around us that are walking about wounded, that need a touch from the Lord. That need someone Baptised in the Holy Spirit to minister and pray for them. Because they are hurting so much they need someone like us to come round them and pray for them, and minister to them and encourage them in the Gospel. They may need a creative miracle and healing and we need to be able to step up in faith and allow the Lord to use us in this way, whether we feel like it or not.

Which is what the whole church is suppose to be doing. I mean the Word tells us Ephesians 4:11,”And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;12 For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:”

So all of us disciples of Christ are suppose to help minister to the body of Christ. Amen! I have seen the Lord heal people instantly numerous times now because the Lord loves to bless and heal and restore  people as we step out in faith and believe Him at His Word.

Sadly I observe so many people in the churches who don’t understand who they are now in Christ. Who aren’t really trusting the Lord at His Word. Who aren’t continually doing all they can to do which is pleasing in His sight. Instead you hear them grumble and complain and express fear of the future. They speak ill against each other or they are on the other side of the fence telling you this is your best life now. How can that be true when so many suffer on earth today?

Clearly the Lord tells us in 1 Corinthians 12:26,” And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.”

As disciples of Christ we shall all suffer with the suffering, and rejoice with the victories. We still need to trust in the Lord for all things because faith is not about how we feel, it is about trusting that God said what He means and He means what He said!

Too many people seem to gain their identity in what they have and in what they give, rather then in who they are in the finished and completed work of Christ. So we are watching people who are stressed out and angry, like a nation that is so deeply in debt it can not find its way out in the natural. Which is a historical reason wars are manufactured. Kingdoms come and Kingdoms go in this world, but the Kingdom of God shall always remain!

Let us keep in mind we are first in an invisible spiritual battle and it starts in your thought life. However, no matter how deeply we have fallen into troubles let us keep in mind that Jesus knew us before the foundation of the world was even laid, and He knows how we shall end up victorious with Him!  Ephesians 1:4,”According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:”

Let us therefore keep fighting the good fight of faith, the Lord has not given up on us so neither ought we give up on anyone else or ourselves.

I pray the Lord’s supernatural peace, healing, provision and protection cover you always with oceans of Agape love. PASTOR CASPAR
