Answer the Call!

God is looking for believers to stand in Faith! Believers who are willing to be evidence providers of the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ!!!

Jesus DIED so that we may LIVE for Him! I love the way Paul says it in Philippians 1:21. He says, " For me, to live is Christ..."  ).

So what does living for Christ entitle? Well, it's all quite simple. This lifestyle is simple enough for me to sum up in one word. That word would be LOVE! We are called to be LOVE here on earth. Some people would sum up the Christian lifestyle with the word faith; but in fact, though faith is a necessary part, faith works by LOVE. So, in the end, it all boils down to LOVE.The Kingdom of God is built on LOVE; and we are called to bring the Kingdom down here to earth.

The great commission is based in Love. Jesus said, " Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation." - Mark 16:15. Why? Because Jesus wants everyone to be governed by his Kingdom. Some are under the false impression that the Kingdom of God can only be established in Heaven. No. The Kingdom is for the HERE AND NOW! It is our responsibility as believers to establish the kingdom in all the world as Jesus commissioned us to do. 

What's so great about being governed by the Kingdom of God? I'll go in depth about this later, but basically the Constitution of the Kingdom of God allows for no sickness or disease (1 Peter 2:24), proclaims you the head and not the tail in daily life matters (Romans 8:37), and secures you a position of authority above principalities, above powers, above the rulers of the darkness of this world, above spiritual wickedness in high places (Ephesians 6:12) so that NOTHING can by any means harm you (Luke 10:19). 

As believers, we have been placed in such a high position of VICTORY; sitting in Christ Jesus at the right hand of God (Ephesians 2:6)! But what's sad is many believers don't know what came along with their FREE promotion, and thus do not walk in it! You must speak from your HEAVENLY POSITION in Christ Jesus!

And so, we as believers are called to bring others into the Kingdom. We do this by demonstrating the Power of God through acts of LOVE! The ultimate act of Love was done by Jesus, when he died on the cross for our sins, while we were still sinners.  And now he has called us to show his LOVE to a poor and destitute world by healing their sick, delivering their captives, and introducing them to a kingdom governed by LIFE and BLESSINGS!  We have the antidote and I don't think it would be very nice to keep it to ourselves

In order to do these things, all you have to do is take a step of faith and answer the call! Say YES to God! For all Christians are called to, "drive out demons; speak in new tongues; pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all;  place their hands on sick people, and they will get well." -Mark 16: 17-18. Pretty awesome right! It's a really sad thing when people start thinking Christianity is boring. It means you are not walking in all you are called to!

You are not responsible for changing yourself. Just answer the call and allow The Word (Jesus) to change and empower you. Once you have answered the call, stay around The Word (Jesus) and allow Him to work in you so that He can began to work through you. Faith comes by hearing and hearing The Word of God (Romans 10:17). When you meditate and stay around The Word, faith will come and allow you to act on all that you have heard!
"For it is God which works in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure". - Philippians 2:13
