How do we kill our mission- through admonition. When you speak with a sense of entitlement, you won't be flexible, you elevate yourself above humility and seek to be the righteous judge of condemnation. Christ didn't leave us to pronounce condemnation, yet when focused on the law we seat ourselves above truth. You'll want to strike back at your reflection-rebuking the same sin that you know within you, and promote your self-righteousness. People will see you as arrogant, placing…

John 8:39 - They answered and said to Him, "Abraham is our father." Jesus said to them, "If you are Abraham's children, do the deeds of Abraham."
Abraham was an alien and stranger on the earth. The goal of his life was to have a place in what God was building, not men.
We are not the heirs of faith because we know that we must live by faith, but we…Continue

John 14:16,17 - "And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever--the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you."
The Lord's holiness is imparted to me as I live in communion with the Holy Spirit.

Acts 1:4,8 - He commanded them not to leave Jerusalem but to wait for what the Father had promised. But you shall receive power (ability, efficiency, and might) when the Holy Spirit has come upon you.
This power came through an encounter with God.
Some because of their fear of error, have said it's improper to seek for an experience with…

Matthew 9:37,38 - "Then He said to His disciples, "The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest."
The Greek word translated "send out" is "ekballo", which at the root level means to "drive out." "Ballo" is where we derive the English word for "ballistic." There is force and sense of urgency, a driving out, a…Continue

Matthew 14:26 - To this Jesus replied "it is not right to take the children's bread and throw it to the dogs."
IT IS THE PRIVILEGE OF CHILDREN TO EAT AT THE TABLE WITH THEIR FATHER AND FROM HIS DISH, WHICH IS TO SHARE IN HIS SPIRIT; BUT THE DOGS MUST EAT THE CRUMBS THAT FALL FROM THE TABLE.

Elisha said, "Please let a double portion of your spirit be upon me."........He also took up the mantle of Elijah that had fallen from him, and went back and stood by the bank…Continue

Exodus 16:4 - "The the Lord said to Moses, "Behold, I will rain bread from heaven for you; and the people shall go out and gather a day's portion every day, that I may test them, whether or not they will walk in My instruction."
This is the test of whether we will get up first thing every day and seek fresh "Manna" from heaven. This fresh daily word from heaven will help keep us fresh…Continue

Philippians 3:20 -- For our citizenship is in heaven, from which we also eagerly wait for the savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.
Paul spoke not about going to heaven someday, but about living as citizens of heaven today....specifically "from" heaven toward earth.
