Power In Jesus
When you give yourself completely to Jesus he gives himself completely to you. What does that mean to a new Christian? Freedom from a life of sin that has entangled us for years and held us in bondage. That is what happens when we give our throne to the King of Kings, freedom. However, sin deceives us to the point that we think we are in total control even when we are at the lowest point in our life. Confessing to our friends that we have lost control of our little kingdom is nearly impossible, because we have unhealthy pride. We don’t want anyone to know that we are not who we think that we are. We hold onto our powerless thrones to the point of being victimized by the devil day after day.
Some people even die in their sins with their throne and pass right on to eternal judgment. The bible says in Hebrews 9:27, “And just as each person is destined to die once and after that comes judgment.” Which means that if Jesus does not call us his disciple then we will be cast into outer darkness and the flames of hell for eternity. Our little thrones are powerless to save us from eternal destruction. Therefore, if are going to partake of the benefits of the Kingdom of God we must ask Jesus to come and sit on the throne of our heart and obey him for all of our days here on earth. The blessings far outweigh the curses of self-rule.
What happens when you invite Jesus to sit on your throne? Everything happens in your life beginning with a brand-new start and clean slate. You are given instant moment by moment access to Jesus, the son of God, and King of Kings. He calls his disciples brothers, and now you will be called a brother or sister in his new and never-ending Kingdom. You now can change things around you through the power of prayer. Your prayers can affect the eternal destiny of hundreds and thousands should you choose to answer the call of the master on your life.
How does that happen you might ask? You simply get involved in a Church and they will disciple you on the Spiritual Disciplines that will lead you to the abundant life that Jesus promised you. Jesus calls people to lead Life Groups and develop disciples that will advance his kingdom in the hearts and minds of unbelievers. We are called to work the harvest fields and make disciples in Matthew 28:18-20. That is exactly what he did over forty-two months during his earthly ministry with twelve devoted followers. Everything has been put in place and all you must do is join up and follow Jesus in a Life Group, and you will grow in your new life with Jesus.
You will begin to experience amazing power in Jesus as you develop your spiritual gifts, and your God given spiritual power to pull down strongholds of the enemy. When you lead your friends and family members to Jesus you will be amazed how Jesus answered your prayers and used you to change people’s eternal destiny. There will always be more to learn about Jesus and his amazing kingdom as your continue growing on your spiritual journey. You have the power in prayer to change the evil direction of a country and pray for revival in the land. You can pray for anyone and change their eternal destiny and what is happening to them in the here and now. Have fun and rule and reign with Jesus Christ for the rest of your life.
