John 15:16 16 You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you. — New International Version (NIV)
Through the years of moral decline, God is finding less, and less devoted people that He can partner with. The same has been for His search for people in one mind and one accord. There is either because of a lack of love for one another, or a false love that has come from religion. The only two commandments that Christ Jesus left for us were to love God above everything else, and to love one another. True love will never come with a condition, or an ulterior motive to build ones own idea of the Kingdom.
It’s my heart to love everyone, to either introduce people to Jesus, or find the Jesus in other people. With that being said, once we find that intimate love affair with Jesus on a personal level, then and only then can we truly love ourselves and others. When that relationship developed, Christ has found a companion to partner with. The journey is not always fun, or easy, and you will lose people along the way. But when Christ is so evident with you everyday then the unholy and unloving will fade into the back ground, and God will start to connect you with the right people.
Then when we all come together in one heart and one accord Jesus will start to send out His disciples. If you’re not in the current move that God has placed you in, it’s because you have disqualified your own self. He never took away his promises, we took away what He needs to partner with to release His promises. It comes from consecration and devotion. That brings me to this, do you want to partner with Jesus? Do you want to see a change in your life, a become the son God has designed you to be. Let’s go into 2017 with an astounding YES, and let’s see what God has for us!
