Freedom In Christ

Hello all at GWOD,

Last night, I heard something on the radio that stated, "We each have as much of God as we want." I was not able to listen to this broadcast because I had to leave my car or else be late for work! So right now I have been thinking about that statement, which is in line with what Pastor MC Davis preached, "How badly do you want it?" This statement, along with Pastor MC Davis' question, speaks volumes to us concerning how much of God you and I will actually have and experience. We have as much as we are willing to pursue. Oh, don't get me wrong, God's fullness is there for us, but most of us are satisfied with what we have. It is not enough, we must have more of God and more of the fullness of Christ in us. Jesus says, "Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you: For everyone that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened." Matt 7:7-8. 

Can you see that this means asking for more of Him, not asking Him for more from Him! It means seeking Him much more than we are doing, not seeking Him for what we can get from Him! It means knocking for more of Him, not knocking for more from Him. This should be our number one prayer, because when we have more of God in our lives and more of His fulness, the fullness of the Holy Ghost in us, then everything else will be taken care of. "But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." Matt 6:33.

This takes some work on our part, "Then shall ye call upon me, and ye shall go and pray unto me, and I will hearken unto you. And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart." Jer 29:12-13.

We are all called to be ministers of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and this will come from God's sufficiency, not our own. I looked up the word minister which is from the Greek word diakonos. It means servant. Therefore we are all called to be servants. So let's seek Him to be able to do all that He is calling us to do. We just observed Martin Luther King Jr. Day and our Freedom services are coming up in Feb. and I was inspired to look up Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.'s speech (preached Word) "I Have a Dream." Talk about a servant of God doing the work God had ordained for his life! If you haven't watched it in its entirety recently, please watch it again. What are you and I going to do with our lives. Let's get prostrate before the Lord and seek His face like never before. Here is the link to this preached Word, "I Have a Dream." It was a peaceful demonstration, but I see it as a powerful church service.

It is sad to see that the world is still in the dark ages concerning freedom, not only in racial issues but in all aspects of compassion for human life, due to the lack of Jesus in their lives. Without Jesus people are lost and many resort to heinous actions. Only Jesus Christ can make a person free. "Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty." 2 Cor 3:17. "If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed." John 8:36.

We are to be His servants walking in liberty, spreading His Word of Salvation in Jesus to the lost. This will be done through prayer first and then as we are filled with His fullness, the Holy Ghost in us will use our mouths and our feet to minister/serve others; all in love and all in the Name of Jesus. How much of God do you have? How much of God do you want? Will you seek Him and find Him, so that He can show you His fullness for your lives and give you the fullness of His Power to carry out His will for each of your lives? As Pastor Crowder said, "Do what God has you doing until He gives you the next assignment." As we seek Him daily, He will show us each step of the Way. Be Blessed and pray one for another. Love you very much.

Love, Sis. Jane
