Living the Christian Life

The SECRET of living the Christian life is die to-self otherwise our spiritual life will have little real progress, lack the discernment to be able to pray, see and walk in the Spirit according to His will. Jesus taught us this prayer, “Thy Kingdom comes, Thy will be done” (Matthew 6:10).

The best protection is to be in His will. In the desert, the rebellious Israelites were bitten by poisonous snakes and scorpions when they strayed out of the covering of the fire pillars and clouds. 

In 2007, 23 pastors and missionaries from South Korea had surely prayed and fasted before embarking on their trip to Afghanistan. However, it was against the directives given by their Churches and country authorities not to risk travelling into Afghanistan. In Afghanistan, they were kidnaped by terrorists. 

Were they doing what God called them to do? 

A man of God wrote:- “No one on earth prayed more, fasted more, read the Bible more, had a greater hope in the coming of the Messiah, or had more zeal for the things of God than the Pharisees. Yet, they were the greatest opposers of God and His Messiah when He came”

God uses the blood to cleanse us from our sins, but He uses the CROSS to crucify the flesh...and as Paul said, “I die daily” (1 Corinthians 15:31). Dying to-self, there will be little resistance to fully surrender our lives to God. 

D. L. Moody, "The world has yet to see what God can do through a man who is totally surrendered to Him."

William Booth, “The greatness of a man’s power is the measure of His surrender.”

Two lives cannot live in one body. One is a life full of things, while the other is a life that is full of Christ. That is why we must die-to-self so that Christ can live in us FULLY. And if Christ lives in us fully in His manifest glory (John 14:11,21,23) Christ’s power will also rest on us with His favour. To be Christ-like, we have to share in His sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory” (Romans 8:17).

If you are called to be a forerunner or a revivalist, don't think that when the Holy Spirit starts moving, people are going to love you. Just like the book of Acts, when the noise of stirring and moving of the Spirit begins, so does persecution. People will accuse you of being a cult and speak evil about you. They will want to destroy you, like the history of past revival faced by people like John Wesley, the famous evangelist John Sung and many others.

Prof Jack Deere wrote: "Think of the controversy that swirled around Jesus, then around the apostles, and since then around every major move of God in history. No man of God has carried a great anointing without having to bear the kind of accusations. The religious leaders would spread gross lies and rumors about anointed men of God perhaps out of fear of losing some of the congregation to the person. However, Jesus told his disciples, "Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me" (Matthew 5:11).

May this one minute sermon encourage you to press it on your calling!
