Every Thursday a group of pastors gets together for the sole purpose of prayer. I always listen to the prayers and any conversations that might take place before or after the prayer time. Recently in one of these prayer meetings I jotted down some thoughts that were shared or prayed. Theses caught my attention and I felt they were God breathed, for me they had a sense of God speaking to us:
Sometimes we forget who we are as Christians. We are “badder" than we think. Even in the middle of a culture that is becoming increasingly anti-Christian, we are not looking for a cave to live in, we are looking for a platform to stand on. God has given us something to share that will be a blessing for all that will listen and hear. Paul is gone, Peter is gone. Who is God going to use today? He is going to use us. God is looking for people in the church to step up and step into their rightful place and calling as children of the Living God. We have nothing to be ashamed of and everything to be excited about.
We believe we are a people of the resurrection, believe also that we are a people of the incarnation. Just as Jesus, when He walked on this earth, modeled for us what it means to live under the presence, power, and purposes of God, so can we model that type of living today. It is very clear from Romans 8:11 and other verses, that the same Spirit that raised Christ Jesus from the dead is alive in us today.
Believe it! Live it! Release it!
What does it mean to be a people of the incarnation?
