“As you therefore received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in Him, rooted and built up in Him, and established in the faith, as you have been taught abounding in it with thanksgiving.” Colossians 2:6-7
The Church was commissioned by Jesus himself, to fulfil tasks which He himself had ordained, before He ascended into heaven. These tasks are as relevant today as they were then.
Firstly it exists to worship God, to express love and thanks. Next to minister to people, encouraging others to find salvation, baptising them into Christ’s Family. Also, it exists to edify and disciple believers, to become more Christ like in our thoughts, feelings and actions.
“For the equipping of the saints for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.” Ephesians
God’s desire for the church in these last days is to rise up in power and revelation. For the church to fulfil it’s destiny in victory. For too long the church has been asleep, unaware of the urgent days that lie ahead.
God longs for us to be attentive to His heart cry, and act accordingly and flow with His plans to see that destiny fulfilled. To support and pray for Israel, to usher in His covenant plans for the one new man. Jew and Gentile.
He has provided wonderful gifts to the body, where individuals are anointed for various tasks, by the power of the Holy Spirit, to build and edify His church. No one is surplus in the Kingdom of God. God needs you, and He wants you to know how valuable you are in His eyes. Also, He desires for you to experience that abundant life which has already been bestowed upon the church, through Jesus’s sacrifice on the cross.
Be blessed! God is desiring to raise up an army, who will stand and fight shoulder to shoulder in the Spirit in prayer, undefeated until Jesus returns and takes His place as King of all Kings.
“Let your Kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Yours is the Kingdom, the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen.”
