For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are being sanctified” Hebrews 10:12, 14 NKJV
“Therefore He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.” Hebrews 7:25 NKJV
II CHRIST’S WORK IN US – SANCTIFICATION
for it is God who works in you both to will and to do for His good pleasure.” Philippians 2:13 NKJV
“But we all, with unveiled face, beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, just as by the Spirit of the Lord.” II Corinthians 3:18 NKJV
“My little children, for whom I labor in birth again until Christ is formed in you,” Galatians 4:19 NKJV
III CHRIST’S WORK THROUGH US – SERVICE
. . . that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body.
. . . that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh.” II Corinthians 4:10-11 NKJV
“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.” John 14:12 NKJV
“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13 NKJV
The Holy Spirit is transforming us. It starts with our mind and to know the Lord’s will we need to be regularly in The Word. How do we cooperate with The Holy Spirit?
1. Surrender. One Big Yes.
2. Obedience. In little and big things.
3. Seek The Lord. Seek Him for more. Seek Him in prayer. Are you hungry for more of The Lord? If you seek Him, He will change you. The Lord is working in you.
4. Ask for His Anointing.
5. Step out in faith. Be grace dispensers. We are ministers of Jesus. Jesus preached the Kingdom of Heaven. He was merciful to everyone. He spoke the truth. He healed the sick. He delivered people. So must we be. Let’s do the ministry of Jesus
