Let Jesus Have His Way With You

The gospel of Jesus Christ
is not just about salvation. It is about becoming part of the kingdom
of God, of the household of God, of which Jesus Christ is the Lord
and Master, Jesus Christ calls us to become born-again children of
God that do the will of God. The gospel that is being preached in
this world is one of salvation, just skipping hell and trying to get
into heaven, but that is a lie.
Jesus requires of us that
we be born again and become children of God, that listen to the
Father, obey Him and serve the kingdom of God. To repent and be
baptized, to be born again of the Spirit of God, is just the
beginning. To receive the baptism in the Holy Spirit, Christ dwelling
in us just connects us to Him, brings us into relationship with Him,
but if we do not submit to Him and serve Him we will perish, we will
not be saved. Jesus calls us for a purpose. He calls us to become
part of His kingdom and He clearly said that every branch in Him that
does not bear fruit will get cut off and burned. The only way that we
can bear fruit is if we remain in Christ, which means, if we remain
in His will. The only way that we can be pleasing to Jesus and
suitable for His kingdom is if we listen to Him and obey Him, if we
serve Him with all that we are. If we refuse to serve Him, we cannot
bear fruit. We cannot serve Him part time or with only part of our
We have to be totally
submitted and committed to Him and we must allow Him to form us and
to make us into that which He wants to make of us, instruments for
His glory. We must allow Jesus to have His way with us so that He can
use us in the way that is pleasing to Him, to fit into His kingdom,
to be part of His plan. If we do not submit to Him and we are not led
by His Spirit, if we're not guided by Him then we cannot bear fruit,
we cannot be part of his kingdom, and we will get cut off and burned.
We need to submit to Jesus
and allow Him to have His way with us. We must offer ourselves in
whole, soul, spirit and body to Him as a living sacrifice, so that He
can use us as He pleases, so that we can bring glory to Him through
Christ dwelling in us and working through us. It is all about Jesus
Christ and the kingdom of God. It is about listening to Him, obeying
Him and doing His will. If we do not follow and obey Jesus and submit
totally to Him, live for His kingdom then we are not suitable for His
kingdom and we will be cast away.
Are we totally committed
and submitted to Jesus Christ? Do we seek His will, His approval, and
His glory? If not, we will not enter his kingdom. There's only one
way and that is: Serve the Master, and let Him have His way with us,
as He pleases, until the very end.
May Jesus bless you.
