The Resurrected Life Always Follows the Crucified Life

WORSHIPING AT THE CROSS IS LIVING IN THE PAST

If you are still worshiping God at the foot of the Cross, you are living in the past. Move beyond the Cross and live in the power of His resurrection. We do this as we enter the fellowship of His suffering.

The Cross was the tool God used to prepare the way of salvation. We must also believe that God raised Jesus from the dead because this is where the power of God enters our lives. We died at the Cross to our old life. We begin our new life in the resurrected power of the Holy Spirit. As we live the resurrected life, we enter the fellowship of Jesus’ suffering. Thus, preparing us for trials and the spiritual battles we will fight.

“BE RENEWED IN THE SPIRIT OF YOUR MIND”

Satan’s greatest weapon is man’s ignorance of God’s Word!

We need to get our minds under control. We need to put on the whole armor of God and keep it on. Each piece of these Spiritual tools is essential for winning the battles in life. Additionally, the condition of our heart before the Lord is paramount to our thought life. “…For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he” (Proverbs 23:7).

Putting on the mind of Christ is essential in controlling our thought life. But first, we must put off our old carnal mind. God has made promises and provisions for us to change our way of thinking. His Word instructs us on how to submit to the will of God. Remember, God’s ways are not our ways.

HOW TO BE BORN AGAIN OF THE SPIRIT

UNLESS ONE IS BORN AGAIN

Jesus said, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God” (John 3:3).  We need a spiritual rebirth because that is where the Spirit lives. The flesh offers nothing of value.

LET GOD’S BUTTERFLY PROJECT TAKE FLIGHT IN YOUR LIFE

Paul wrote, “These things we also speak, not in words which man’s wisdom teaches but which the Holy Spirit teaches, comparing spiritual things with spiritual. But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned” (1 Corinthians 2:13-14). There’s a whole other dimension when a person is born again of the Spirit.  The natural man knows nothing about this realm. You’ll never understand God until you enter that spiritual dimension.
