The Master's Plan, Part IV
HIS PURPOSE FOR OUR DESTINY
Strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, for all patience and longsuffering with joy. Colossians 1:11
We as believers have the very power and might of the Lord Jesus and as He was in the world, now He is in us. Jesus lives in the born again new creation and the more we surrender our will under His control, the more He lives out His life in us.
Greater is He that is in us than he that is in the world describes His existence abiding in our spirit, purifying our nature and character through the trials and tests of life, more than conquerors we are victorious in Him. If the believer would really take to heart what is happening in his life because the Son of God is actually residing in him, the world and the church would be a different place. We are the only expression of the life of Christ the world will ever see, this side of His glorious return.
Signs, wonders and the greater works that He promised would be the order of the day with no more dead and lifeless funeral services for a dead Savior once a week trying to pump up an apostate congregation asleep in the light, or should I say, in the darkness. The indwelling presence of Holy Spirit would fill the earth with power for healing, deliverance and the transformation of the lost by the conviction of sin and the regeneration by the Spirit. The world would shake under God's mighty power!
"You shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth." Acts 1:8
