BE AN EVIDENCE OF RIGHTEOUSNESS
Sunday, 16 August 2015
“Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men.” 2 Corinthians 3:2
God wants you to become an evidence of the word to the world. He wants you to be everything that He said about you. He wants the world to read the word in you. He wants you to be a reflection of His word. When you are not what He has said about you, God is not pleased because He desires to show you off as a special specie of being. So He wants you to accept His word as who He is so that He can be revealed in your life on the earth.
God looks at us and says “you are righteous” And He wants you to so much meditate upon it, believe it and paint the picture of righteousness in your mind that sin will not have any place in your life. So that He can point to you as an evidence of righteousness on the earth.
Joel 3:10 says “Beat your plowshares into swords, and your pruning hooks into spears: let the weak say, I am strong”. 2 Corinthians 4:18 says “While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal”. 2 Corinthians 5:7 says “For we walk by faith, not by sight”. Therefore, while others are seeing sin, you are seeing righteousness. While they see sickness, you are seeing healing. When they see lack, you see abundance and when they see weakness, you see strength. When they see defeat, you see victory. When they see failure you see success and when they see death, you see life because you are living by the word of the Lord.
The bible says “Be ye Holy for your father is Holy”. God wants you to walk in Holiness. You may not look like it initially. But by accepting it as who you are, it will eventually manifest. Because when you look continuously into the word, you experience a change from Glory unto Glory. The reason He left you here on earth is to allow you manifest Heaven on earth. And the word of God is the key, the instrument, the ingredient by which you can become all that heaven has said. I declare that great Glory shall be upon you from today onwards. Your life will shine. The Lord will be glorified in you and you will celebrate.
