“And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among people by which we must be saved [for God has provided the world no alternative for salvation].””
Acts 4:12 AMP
We found last post that we are here–
Responsible for the Gospel being preached to the world.
But how do we get from here to there?
That question doesn’t originate from your Spirit, by the way.
Your Spirit is recreated in Christ Jesus.
You are full of Him.
Full of Wisdom, Full of Boldness, Full of Joy….
And of His Fulness have all we received, and grace for grace. John 1:16
I’m drawn to that word “all”.
Whether it’s the fact that Jesus is the Fulness made available to all, or all we need is found in Jesus-
He is still the Full tank in which , everything comes forth.
And I do, rather He does, mean everything.
All things were made by Him: and without Him, there was not anything made that was made. John 1:3
So, That kind of questioning arises in your soul.
Your soul still struggles to believe that you’re fully equipped.
How am I going to get this gospel to the world?
How will I become effective?
Brothers and Sisters, we become effective by acknowledging every Good thing that is already in us because of Jesus. Philemon 1:6
And scripturally speaking, the Boldness that was seen from the disciples who changed the world for Jesus,
Came from being with Him. (Acts 4:13)
You can’t calculate-
how much scripture,
and the power to go with it you will need to witness.
That’s all focused on you.
When You spend time with Jesus in His Word, finding out who you are in Him,
what you have access to in Him,
and what it is that He has called you to do, in a personal, strategic way-
You’ll be effective.
I’m thinking of a song this morning-
“Something happens to me when I bow down to worship you-
So I’ll worship you Lord, whenever I can.
I will fall to my knees though the world doesn’t worship you-
I will love you with everything that I am.”
That’s surrendering our soul.
Something does happen when we bow down to worship-
We’re not any more “saved” or “Loved,” but we acknowledge more of Who He is-
in His Presence, and we conform our souls to it.
The very first scripture declaring that there is no other Name by which was given to save us,
Is the same Name that saves our bodies and souls.
The Same Name getting us to Heaven, is the same Name that Healed our bodies.
That Same Name signs every faith check that we will ever need to cash.
Spending time in His Presence, acknowledging every present,
Will cause us to be effective.
We are Blessed to be a Blessing.
That’s the Gospel in effect.
