1Peter 2:5 - Come and, like living stones, be yourselves built into a spiritual house, for a holy, dedicated, consecrated priesthood, to offer up those spiritual sacrifices that are acceptable and pleasing to God through Jesus Christ.
Colossians 1:27 - To whom God was pleased to make known how great for the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ in you , the hope of glory.
When I realize that I am the House of God, then God is everywhere I am, He is just as powerful in me, whether I am on a mountain top, by the sea, amongst unbelievers in the world, or in an organized church meeting.
The Kingdom of God wants so much to impact every aspect of my life: every day, every minute, every breath, every step, every territory, every person, and every system I engage with. When someone disappoints me I look to Jesus and press towards the mark for the prize of the high calling (my destiny) of God in Christ Jesus.
I need to have the mind of Christ, living out the life of Christ through me. Wherever Jesus walked, ministry happened. Whatever Jesus did there was ministry. Whomever Jesus met, there was ministry. Whomever He touched, there was ministry. When he walked into a building there was ministry. When He loved unconditionally, it was ministry.
His life was ministry from the time He woke, until the day was done, and so, likewise should my life be.
Since I am "Kingdomized" I get each day excited for what the Lord has for me that day. I begin to walk and flow in His "now" presence all day long. I begin to hear what the Father hears. I begin to see what the Father sees, regardless of what I hear and see in the natural. When I go into a meeting, I expect His presence to break down walls while bringing divine insight. When I walk into a potential business deal, I expect divine favor. When I encounter hostility, I realize that this person is hurting and needs a healing word spoken--but mostly needs love.
When I drive through neighborhoods I pray for the residents and ask the Lord for His desire and love to reach them. God begins to touch them and open up opportunities for divine relationship.
I EXPECT REVELATION, EXPECT IMPARTATION, AND EXPECT MIRACLES WHENEVER I SHOW UP.
WHAT A GLORIOUS KINGDOM, WHAT A GLORIOUS GOD!
