Lest any misunderstand, I’m not talking about “doing ministry.”
I’m talking about New Creation REALITIES…
I’m talking about ridiculous, nonsensical joy manifested through holy lives with the supernatural power and authority of King Jesus Himself. “That’s how the Father will be seen for who he is in the Son.”
ALL DEATH, DEFEAT, AND BONDAGE IS GONE THE VERY INSTANT WE IDENTIFY WITH JESUS CHRIST IN HIS LIFE, DEATH, BURIAL, AND RESURRECTION.
And it just gets better and better…
“If you love me, obey my commandments. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, who will never leave you. He is the Holy Spirit, who leads into all truth. The world cannot receive him, because it isn’t looking for him and doesn’t recognize him. But you know him, because he lives with you now and later will be in you. No, I will not abandon you as orphans—I will come to you. Soon the world will no longer see me, but you will see me. Since I live, you also will live. When I am raised to life again, you will know that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you. Those who accept my commandments and obey them are the ones who love me. And because they love me, my Father will love them. And I will love them and reveal myself to each of them.”
~John 14:15-21~ (nlt)
