Paul defines Discipleship as called by God to preach the Gospel, Declare the POWER of the Cross and Proclaim Christ Jesus as Resurrected Savior, reaching across the economic, religious and social divide of his day. From the day Paul encountered the LORD, he urged his listeners to ‘Forge Ahead’ as Mighty Warriors, guided by Holy Spirit into full understanding of Kingdom LIFE. 1 Corinthians 1:30 (Amplified Bible) “But it is from Him that you have your life in Christ Jesus, Whom God made our Wisdom from God, [revealed to us a knowledge of the divine plan of salvation previously hidden, manifesting itself as] our Righteousness [thus making us upright and putting us in right standing with God], and our Consecration [making us pure and holy], and our Redemption [providing our ransom from eternal penalty for sin]. ” This same message 2000 years later, speaks clearly to the heart of humanity, of God’s Love desiring for mankind to seek HIM in repentance. Revealing the constant struggles which mankind faces, Paul was quick to point out that receiving knowledge of God’s Divine Plan entirely fulfilled in Christ Jesus, was in terms of Eternity, certainly more profitable. Properly fitted with the Spiritual Armor of God, Believers are fitly able to withstand adversity and persecution, such as Paul, Peter and the other disciples had. Every Believer must be completely surrendered to God’s Will, every footstep directed by HIS Spirit, following the same course outlined in HIS Covenant. Having REDEEMED us with a ransom of HIS Life, Christ Jesus calls us into a LIFE of Abundance and Victory, becoming the Holiness and Righteousness of God as Believers are the manifestation of HIS Glory throughout the earth. O’LORD, all Praise and Honor to YOU on high. To YOU I draw near, to hear YOUR Voice. Direct me as I follow YOU each day, overcoming the enemy with YOUR Spirit of POWER. I must Declare that YOUR Kingdom is here, brought to earth by YOUR Son of endless LOVE, extending YOUR Grace and Mercy from heaven above. YOU alone must I serve with all that I am, Faithful and Obedient to YOUR Will all of my days. Send forth YOUR Warriors of TRUTH, for YOUR Holy WORD gives LIFE Everlasting.. Amen]]]]> ]]>
