2 Thes. 1.11,12… that God may count you worthy of His calling and that by His power He may fulfill every good purpose of yours and every act prompted by your faith…so that the name of Jesus may be glorified in you in Him according to the grace of our God and the Lord Jesus Christ.
This is God’s will for every believer. No man is justified by the works of the Law. Rom. 3.20 – By the deeds of the fix shall no man be justified in His sight. None is righteous on his own. Some try to mix things under the law with things of the Spirit, under the new covenant. It doesn’t work. False cults try to mix things of the Spirit with their cult. It doesn’t work. When you believe God, He justifies you. How do you get righteous? Instead of trying to stop sinning, you lose that desire. Believe, and you begin to receive the fruit of righteousness in your life.
Rom. 10.8 – the word is nigh thee. Jesus and the Word are inseparable. It is near you, in your mouth, and in your heart. Whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
2 Pet. 1.10 – be all the more eager to make your calling and election sure. For if you do these things, you will never fall, and you will never fall, and you will receive a rich welcome with the Word of God. The problem is to get your MIND to know it is true. If you don’t walk with Jesus, you will not make it. If you don’t make Him No.1, you are not a Christian. You cease from your own works to do the works of Him who sent you. You do the works of God.
Col. 2.7….As you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live in Him… built up in Him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught and overflowing with thankfulness. Many believers will read and pray but not LISTEN. Know for certain. Be immovable. He will live and work in you. God’s will is for you to have even more faith than you have.
Don’t stand on anything but Word of God. In Christ, all the fullness of the Deity lives in bodily form and you have been given fullness in Christ…Believe and He will speak. DESIRE the Word of God. Desire the sincere milk of the Word.
1 Tim. 4.5 – everything God created is good. Col. 3.16 – Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly. When Jesus dwells in you he will recall the words to your remembrance. Lord wants you grounded in ENTIRE Word of God. Some people don’t let it change the way they think, respond, the way they think about themselves and others. You can’t walk with Jesus if you are not in agreement with Him. Can two walk together if they don’t agree?
Luke. 17.21 – Kingdom of God is within you. He is right there to give you whatever you need. He will function through you. If people lived that now, it would be equally revolutionary. You have the calling. Let your good deeds shine. You become salt and light.
1 Cor. 14.12 – Try to excel in gifts that build up the church. You build through the Word of God and the Spirit. Lift up the person who is falling. Tell him you believe God has a plan for him. Reconcile. If you don’t reconcile, you are not Christ-like. Don’t point out problems. All things should be done to edify. You need to build and strengthen people. Encourage them to yield to the Lord.
2 Thess. 3.1 – …that the message of the Lord may spread rapidly and be honored. Let the Word of God have free course in you. 1 Thess. 4.1 – We instructed you how to live in order to please God. As you minister to others, you grow. When you feel down, tell someone else about Jesus. Give out of your need, and God will bless you.
2 Thess. 1.11 – it doesn’t have free course unless you let it out. Don’t stop up your pipeline. God wants you to do what Jesus would do if He were here. that God would fulfill His good pleasure in you. Say, “God speak through me.”
