KEY SCRIPTURE: John 6:29 KJV’ Jesus answered and said unto them, This is the work of God, that ye believe on him whom he hath sent.”
In our previous study we learnt about the great and unique life of our Lord Jesus that places an inevitable need to believe in Him.
Believing the Lord Jesus unites us to Him, such that we naturally function with His ability.
In today’s discussion we would look at another aspect of Jesus’ life that also places a great demand on us to believe in Him. This aspect of His life is the period of His passion, till He resurrected from the dead to ascend into heaven. The significance of this era of His life was to make us qualified or receive the ability to lead the kind of life He demonstrated in the time before His passion. Colossians 1:12 KJV Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet (qualified) to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light:”
The Lord Jesus lived above the power of disease and He has made the provision for us to do so. During His passion, His body was beaten and torn to a point His face was almost formless. Isaiah 53:5 KJV” But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.” He has made a divine provision for our healing, so believe in Him for your divine health. The Lord Jesus became sin on the cross and carried away our sins. We were buried with Him through supernatural immersion into Him. We were raised without any sin. Romans 6:4 KJV” Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life”.
To believe in Jesus, also means, giving the life and Spirit of Christ, that free access to express Himself through us.
The Lord suffered and died on the cross, was buried, and rose up to ultimately ascend into heaven, to be enthroned. The bible said He was resurrected for our justification. His resurrection meant our righteousness. We received a completely new nature, also known as a new creation (2 Corinth 5:17). The Lord was ultimately enthroned on the right hand of the Father, of which we are seated with Him in the heavenly places, far above all principalities and power. Eph 2:6 KJV” And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus”: Believing in Jesus means believing in all that He has achieved for us, and that sets the stage for a life of purpose and victory.
Believing Him, sets us up to effectively do whatever He instructs us to do. The Lord Jesus, said the following to all, John 14:1 KJV “. Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.”
THOUGHT: BELIEVING JESUS GIVES ACCESS INTO THE WORLD OF EXPLOITS.
Dan 11:32 KJV “And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries: but the people that do know their God shall be strong, and do exploits.”
Phm 1:6 KJV” That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.”
