THAT WE MIGHT:
➢might have life
➢might be saved
➢might fear the Lord
➢might walk worthy
Jesus came to earth to live and die for us, “That ye might.” I keep putting we, because it is available to all, but the Word is speaking to us as individuals.
He desires that we be filled:
-with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge”
-“with all the fulness of God.”
Knowledge of His will, here, now on earth. In worldly wisdom as well as Spiritual understanding.
This means, we must understand the Spiritual side of Salvation, and also understand, why He gave us Spiritual Gifts. (To increase the Church, to do His will).
He wants us to be filled with the FULNESS OF GOD. What could that mean?
➢Full of love
➢Full of grace
➢Full of mercy
➢Fuul of; Godly wisdom, knowledge, boldness, Faith, Power, Peace and Joy…
That we might in know:
“That we would know and be able to share the love of Christ.” (foolishness to the unbelievers).
That we would know how to increase His Church, that is one of our only charges. “Go, ye therefore and teach all nations.”
We need to know how to use the tools He has given us…
“I the Lord have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles;
To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house.”
Saints, we cannot do this without His tools.
That ye might: That is our problem, ye might, that means many of us will not. Too many of us “will not.”
Many will not even ask the Lord, about the Spiritual Gifts, I have the Gift to teach or preach, I don’t need the others.
If JESUS NEEDED, SIGNS, WONDERS AND MIRACLES TO DRAW PEOPLE TO HIMSELF, Why do we believe we don’t.
THE CHURCH NEEDS MORE:
WORKERS OF MIRACLES, MEN WITH THE GIFT OF FAITH, MEN WITH THE GIFTS OF HEALING.
If you being evil, give good gifts, how much more our heavenly Father, will give us good gifts.
Church, we need to repent, for burying the Talents, (Gifts of the Spirit), the Master left us. Instead of learning their increase, for the building of His Church.
Become a Spiritual Dispenser… The world needs the Power and Love of God. Amen
