This will not only refresh our idea of love, God and salvation but also how when we walk in Him through seasons of hardships we plant seeds God can cultivate & harvest.
The Divine Law the Agent in Psalms 19:7 gives us detail on God’s standard, what it does and the power behind it. “The law of the LORD is perfect, converting the soul: the testimony of the LORD is sure, making wise the simple.”
The law is perfect, this statement brings conviction to the soul and spirit. This is the seed that plants conversions. Then when it has sprouted & harvested, the testimony of God makes once wise to simple. This standard shows how easily we can bring an offense to God. However, we will show how God opened the way that all could come to Him- and still maintain His nature of Holiness.
Jesus, God in flesh came to the world to be received as the payment of our own penalties, yet not just ours but the worlds. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”- John 3:16
His way of cleansing and investing in us was to give us a new heart and Spirit. His very own in fact: “A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.”- Ezekiel 36:26.
This act of love was divinely planed and it provides spiritual clarity to our purpose; to be born into the spirit- John 1:13, “Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.” John 3:3, “Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.” 2 Corinthians 3:3, “Forasmuch as ye are manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart.” 2 Corinthians 5:17, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”
He put us in the grave and brought us back to life, in Christ. The only sacrifice that wasn’t consumed by God. However God did a new thing, do we perceive it and receive it. He received us and brought us back to life, through Christ’s obedience and from His heart. God received Himself as the sacrifice, as He could only be the one to restore us to Him.
God and Christ are one. They are Spirit, they are Word and God together. Our Father is eternal and unseen- he became visible and temporary for the sake of us through Christ.
John 1:1-3, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.”
This is Papa’s love, that He would step into flesh and blood to transition us from death to life. It’s the love of God. Likewise, walking in such nature God keeps us Holiness by obedience through the Son, Jesus Christ. Through the sons death, burial and resurrection the Spirit of God is poured into us upon being marked and filled.
Here in Scriptures we wanted to point out some great keys in how to continuously and receptively embracive Christ and walk with him. Once we accept Christ, the road isn’t easy, it becomes narrow. Through these, God shared with us some powerful ways that we plant seeds of Christ and His nature in the most important places of our walk.
Acceptance & Rejection:
• Matthew 10:40, “He that receiveth you receiveth me, and he that receiveth me receiveth him that sent me.” -Anyone who receives you has already open their hearts to be sown into.
They have already unknowingly opened up their heart to receive from God through Christ in you. There are three major parts to this. God, as Abba the eternal unseen God, Christ the Messiah the image of the invisible God and You, the Vessel who others see Christ and God through love and obedience. God being love and Christ being the obedience. This is so practical it has an immediate effect in the Spirit. This is why God has chosen each of us to love, and to speak life forward. We are reaping what we are sowing into the field of the hearts. When we are not received, the Lord honors this, and still operates in others lives to share His love to that person. When we are rejected it’s God that is rejected not us. We’re the carriers of His love and presence. That’s what they are unfamiliar with, therefore your response in the Spirit still plants a seed. God gives the increase.
Remembering our Identity:
• Mark 9:37, “Whosoever shall receive one of such children in my name, receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me, receiveth not me, but him that sent me.” – Your Identity as His child is so important. Jesus was giving us a view of the precious and pure image of us in the spirit.
So when we embrace Christ continually we come as children. And anyone who doesn’t accept you, reject what God has done for the world. In fact they reject it because they don’t see themselves as children but orphans, adults without a father. They reject acceptance because they have not been accepted in their own eyes and hearts. That’s why Through our love, and obedience to the commission by Christ we walk in Spirit. We see where others are, because we have seen truth. Don’t take it personally, but seek it as a opportunity to receive Christ more and share more of His love into the world. Our identity is so important. We have all we need, and what we share with this world is from the heart of our Papa.
Waiting in affliction:
• Luke 8:40, “And it came to pass, that, when Jesus was returned, the people gladly received him: for they were all waiting for him.” – Waiting is an act of faith and patience. When we walk by faith and we walk in the Spirit, this becomes a fruit.
To continue receiving Christ daily, we must wait on him in our circumstances, prayers, relationships and ministries. To see Him show up it requires seeking in the most hardest times. However, when He faithful arrives it produces a fruit in us- Joy! That’s why the Joy of the Lord is our strength, because we await for Him in patience and in faith through all hardships to see him continually do what He does best. The Miraculous! When walk by faith, in the Spirit through all things we become a billboard in the Spirit. The world sees it, the enemy sees it, and Papa sees it. This is a testimony of faith, endurance and obedience that plants seeds to others even without speaking a word. The power of God in us, through Christ in Spirit can affect our surroundings even without speaking of Him.
• Luke 19:6, “And he made haste, and came down, and received him joyfully.” -When we devote ourselves to God, even when we are wrong He will arrive and come to our own home.
In the passage of Scripture Zacchaeus was aware of his error and sough the Messiah. Christ came to him and requested to be in His home.
This own home is our temple, our body, heart, soul and Spirit. He comes with love, compassion and truth. The word becomes alive in us, it continues to convince us, convict us and transition us into transformation into His image. There is nothing more powerful than admitting wrong, and seeking Christ to receive from Him. Around us, many knowing us a Christians but have not received us as a way to God watch our character. They are watching just like Papa and the enemy. As we admit our mistakes, we provide a way to others the Spirit of God, forgiveness and our identity in Christ as Children. When we try to cover up things, others see it and see nothing different. They don’t see God, they see themselves. Everyone is created to want God, we are that avenue even in our worst moments. It’s through the Love Of God and the Obedience in Christ that we show His heart and glory.
Our Purpose and Right:
• John 1:12, “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:” -When we receive Him, we become Children Of God. Like wise when we are already His, and others see us in Him they are attracted to this glory.
The light convicts the lie, the wound, the damage, the hurt and source of all darkness. We are given this time to shine that light through our identity on earth. This is an expression of thy Kingdom Come thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. When we shed the light of Christ in us we reflect the Kingdom Love. We when shed light on the truth for guidance we reflect the Kingdoms Culture. When we assign ourself to the will of God we become the image of Christ by shed light on what Kingdom Alignment looks like.
When we pull from our Father Papa to shine into the world, we receive Christ and His obedience through the Love Of God. We attract those wounded, lost, troubled, children back to the fold of God.
We attract, He lures. We reflect, He releases. We plant, He sprouts. We Speak, He Responds. We Align, He Produces. We Walk, He Opens.
