That we might, a powerful promise, that expresses permission, liberty, probability, possibility….
We have permission, the freedom, the ability to become, or attain the following:
“that we might be fellowhelpers to the truth.”
We might be the vehicle the Lord uses to bring someone to the knowledge of salvation.
“that we might live through him.”
We might find our peace, joy, comfort, guidence and direction throught Him.
“that we might be partakers of his holiness.”
We might be holy, sanctified, justified, forgiven, even blameless as we live through Him.
“that we might receive the adoption of sons.”
We might, and we have been adopted.
“that we might be justified by faith.”
It is just as if I never sinned, I am justified.
“that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.”
Jesus is our wisdom and righteousness.
“that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.”
Too many never receive this promise, they do not understand the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, and never receive the fullness of the Gospel. So Sad…
“that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.”
Again, another missed opportunity for many, we bury the gifts instead of increasing the church through them.
“that we might work the works of God?”
What is the work of God? To know God is, and He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him.
When we refuse much that the Lord would have us to have, we end up with, powerless preaching, terrible teaching, problematic prophecies, pointless prayer. Your choice.
We might, OR MIGHT NOT.
IT IS UP TO US.
