You Exist to Transmit Favor

31 Oct

Pursue with diligence the consequence of your co-inclusion in Christ. Relocate yourself mentally! His resurrection co-raised you to the same position of authority, seated in the strength of God’s right hand.

Becoming affectionately acquainted with Throne Room thoughts will keep you from being distracted again by the earthly (soul-ruled) realm.
Your union with His death broke the association with that world; the secret of your life now is the fact that you are wrapped up with Christ in God.
Every time Christ is revealed as our life, we are being co-revealed in the same glory (likeness and image of God) being united together with Him.
Consider the members of your body as dead and buried towards everything related to the porn industry, sensual uncleanness, longing for forbidden things, lust and greed which are just another form of idol worship.

It was because of these things that the anger of God fell upon His son. Because of our unbelief we were all once swept along into a lifestyle of lust.
But now you can permanently rid yourselves of all these things: things such as violent outbursts of rage, depression, all manner of wickedness, slander (any attempt to belittle someone else and to cause someone to fall into disrepute or to receive a bad reputation, which is blasphemy) and every form of irregular conversation.

We are no longer obliged to live under the rule of a sinful nature, neither are we cheating anyone through false pretensions,
but we stand fully identified in the new creation renewed in knowledge according to the pattern of the exact image of our Creator.
The revelation of Christ in everyone gives identity to the individual beyond anything he could ever be as a Greek or a Jew, circumcised or uncircumcised, foreigner, savage, slave or free. From now on everyone is defined by Christ; everyone is included in Christ.

You are the product of God’s love, He restored you to His original thought to belong to Him exclusively.  It is like changing garments; now that you have gotten rid of the old, clothe yourselves with inner compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Upholding one another in positive expectation. If anyone finds fault with another, restore that person to favor in the same forgiveness that the Lord released us with.

Wear love like a uniform; this is what completes the picture of our oneness.

Appoint the peace of Christ as umpire in your hearts; we are all identified in the same person, there is only one body. You exist to transmit favor.
Christ is the language of God’s logic. Let His message sink into you copiously with unlimited vocabulary, taking wisdom to its most complete conclusion. This makes your fellowship an environment of instruction in an atmosphere of music. Every lesson is a reminder, echoing in every song you sing, whether it be a Psalm (raving about God in praise and worship accompanied by musical instruments) or a hymn (a testimony song) or a song in the spirit (a new spontaneous prophetic song). Grace fuels your heart with inspired music to the Lord.
