It’s all about Jesus, it’s not about us.
As we each look to the Lord and focus on Him, as we deny ourselves and follow Him, He can do mighty and wonderful things. I think the Lord is simply waiting for us to start believing Him, and get about the business of building the Kingdom of God. It’s not about us or our opinions; it’s about Jesus Christ and what He is doing in the earth today. Is 55 tells us that His ways are higher than our ways. The following are a few scriptures that illustrate what can happen as we focus together on Jesus.
Blessings to you all,
After experiencing the mighty work of the Holy Spirit in their lives those in the first church focused together on minister and reaching the world for Christ. They were together, they prayed, praised, and communed together – and the Lord moved in and through them.
40 And with many other words he testified and exhorted them, saying, “Be saved from this perverse generation.” 41 Then those who gladly received his word were baptized; and that day about three thousand souls were added to them. 42 And they continued steadfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers. 43 Then fear came upon every soul, and many wonders and signs were done through the apostles. 44 Now all who believed were together, and had all things in common, 45 and sold their possessions and goods, and divided them among all, as anyone had need.
46 So continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart, 47 praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved.
When God’s people dwell in unity this is an anointing and a blessing.
1 Behold, how good and how pleasant it is
For brethren to dwell together in unity!
2 It is like the precious oil upon the head,
Running down on the beard,
The beard of Aaron,
Running down on the edge of his garments.
3 It is like the dew of Hermon,
Descending upon the mountains of Zion;
For there the LORD commanded the blessing—
We are fellow citizens of the household of God, built together in Christ – and becoming His dwelling place together.
19 Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, 20 having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone, 21 in whom the whole building, being fitted together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, 22 in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.
We are His boding growing together in love,
15 but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ— 16 from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.
