27. JCH5: 31-40

The only way GOD can witness Himself in our lives is when we do what He wants us to do and He glorifies Himself in the process. GOD will witness Himself through us if all His parameters have been met through His grace. He is the one that gives purpose and He must be the one that gives directions because He knew the end before the beginning; He masterminded them all. Let us simply be His vessels and let HIM speak and do as He desires!

All the prophets witnessed about CHRIST through their prophecies . . . they never witnessed themselves but only spoke according to the Spirit of the Lord upon them.

Whenever people come to us, who they must see is CHRIST because the moment we gave our lives to HIM, we have made a covenant that everything we do must be about HIM only. We do not witness ourselves but GOD through CHRIST. To the audience, we are witnessing GOD but To GOD, He is witnessing Himself as GOD and witnessing us as His own. As we glorify GOD with our lives, He would also glorify us with Himself. You would know the people that are of GOD based on how well CHRIST is represented in what they speak or do.

LORD, I am rededicating my life to You today! Help me to live in the confession of my salvation when I said “I give my life to You.” Let the summary of my story be Your Glory!

GODLY ETHICS: Grace and Truth

GODLY ETHICS: Grace and Truth

5. JCH 1: 14-17

The Word of GOD becoming flesh simply means that whatever GOD is saying is what we are doing; whatever He desires is what is happening in our lives. This was what happened to CHRIST when He was on earth! Whatever GOD asked Him to do was what He was doing even though He had the option of doing the opposite.

Glory of GOD simply means that whatever GOD says would happen in our lives actually happened or is happening.

The Grace of GOD simply means GOD’s empowerment that comes from our obedience and willingness in being on the same page with HIM.

The Truth of GOD simply means that we allow His Word to come to pass or to established in our lives for the world to see; and that people did not see HIM as a liar or take His Word for a lie because of our disobedience.

GOD’s Word is always the Truth but we can make it seem like a lie before people if we do not obey by doing accordingly. Being full of grace and truth means that we have the capacity to do and what we are doing with this capacity is what is needed to be done according to GOD’s design. GOD wants us to be embodiment of His word. He wants His Word to become what we live (our flesh: our nature) till we get out of this time. He wants people to see HIM in us.

It is as we establish His Truth through His Grace that He increases our Grace for another adventure of establishing His Truth . . . The status is the Truth while the stature is Grace, the conditions and criticalities of engagement may warrant increase in the measure of Grace but the status of Truth is not subject to change.

 

Oh CHRIST! Give me the Grace to uphold YOUR Truth in any circumstance that I find myself. Let YOUR Word be my priority that YOUR Grace may be abundant in establishing the Truth . . . for YOUR Word indeed is Truth!

DAVIDIC LEADERSHIP: Learning By Doing

1Samuel 22:3-5; Nehemiah 8: 7-10

When GOD gives a word, it’s understanding can only be given by doing according this given word. When David told the king of Moab about learning what GOD would do for him, it was not staying put in the cave if Adullam even though it was his stronghold but going out of it in order to realize the Word of the LORD given to him when He was alone with GOD.

Anyone in the path of leadership must realize that ern though safety is of importance, exploit according to GOD’s given Word is what assures a safety that would last longer than one’a time on earth.

And GOD in HIS mercy knows our capability with respect to the Word HE wants to accomplish through us wen while we tread on the path of leadership. Because of this, HE institutes commands/commandments that serve as gracious guides as we journey through life. HIS commands are meant to help us know what to do per time as the obedience of these commands would bring outcomes (be it pleasant or unpleasant) that would make us come to the understanding of HIS intentions at particular points in time.

HE makes our obedience (through works) and understanding inseparable so that as HIS Glory is evident in whatever we do, joy would also fill our hearts thereby strengthening us to obey HIM more and more willingly.

There is a higher level of understanding that comes by doing and this is what GOD desires for any man on the path of Leadership. But learning by doing can only be accomplished through Faith in the ONE that gives the commands/commandments.
