WILL OF GOD TO SERVE OTHERS
"For this is the will of God, that by doing good you may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men – as free, yet not using your liberty as a cloak for vice, but as servants of God. Honor all people. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honor the king" (I Pet. 2:15-17).
Through the Spirit rebirthing, our Heavenly Father has basically prepared us for everything we will need in our walk in this temporal life. The most significant thing that our Father has done for us, besides His marvelous grace and redemption through Christ on the cross, was to place His only begotten Son in us at the Spirit birthing. His Son in us is to be our everything for this earthly walk. Christ is to be our wisdom, righteousness, sanctification, and redemption (I Cor. 1:30). Christ is to be our life and expression (I John 5:11-12; Gal. 2:20). This is why we are called the Body of Christ (I Cor. 12:27). We don't lack for grace and truth, for we have the Person of grace and truth – the Lord Jesus Christ, since the Spirit rebirthing living in us as us with His eternal life (John 1:17; Rom. 6:23). There should be no doubt that we are fully complete in the Spirit realm in Christ, who is the head of all principality and power (Col. 2:10). Anything that seems to lack in you comes from our mind not yet fully transformed to these truths by the Holy Spirit, or our lack of obedience in our walk to those revealed truths to us (Rom. 12:2; Gal. 3:1). Our Heavenly Father put Christ in us – the center and mystery of His will, for us to live a shared-life in Him –the Christ-life.
The Christ-life message is the heart and soul of the apostle Paul. Christ specifically called Paul, revealed Christ in Him, and sent him to declare this to the church, as the Father's divine plan and correction needed to and for the church (Gal. 1:11-16; I Cor. 2:1-10). Most of the problems that the church faces today, is rooted to a lack of the teaching this liberating secret of the Christ-life. Religion does not teach it, for they must control the people through mixtures of law and grace. This message of 100% grace does not fit. Others do not teach it, because it has not been yet fully revealed to them, or they view it as only a peripheral message and not the Father's central focus message of truth. The church surely needs revival – that we will truly come back to the in Christ message of the apostle Paul of Christ living in you as you – hence, the Christ-life. Spontaneously and continuously living the Christ-life will genuinely produce His good and put to silence the ignorance of foolish men (I Pet. 2:15). Spontaneously living the Christ-life is our Father's freedom to us and liberty for us (Gal. 5:1).
Our Father's divine purpose is to gather in one all things in Christ (Eph. 1:10). We are clay pots or vessels, to carry the treasure of Christ in us (II Cor. 4:7). Paul declares that the Christ-life should always be manifested in us and expressed through us (II Cor. 4:10). Christ is in us, and we are still in this earthly walk, in order that the Christ-life will be expressed through us with His Spirit of agape love-for-others (I John 4:16-17). As we spontaneously live the Christ-life, we will walk in the will of God to serve God and others in honor, agape love, in the fear of the Lord! V
