DO YOU UNDERSTAND HOW JESUS CHRIST DAILY LIVES HIS LIFE IN YOU?
Now before you continue reading and studying this lesson push the pause button on your thoughts and think deeply on this question, “DO YOU UNDERSTAND HOW JESUS CHRIST DAILY LIVES HIS LIFE IN YOU?” The question is not an idle one and it is certainly not one that is meant to trip you up. We just want you to understand without an ounce of doubt just how Jesus lives and functions in your life daily doing all the things you are capable of doing without you ever having to think about how He is operating within you.
To understand this clearly you must comprehend the meaning of the VINE AND BRANCH. What is the VINE and BRANCH? Listen to how Jesus explains it’s meaning, He says, “I am the VINE; you are the BRANCHES. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bear much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing. (John 15:5 ESV). Here once again I ask you to pause your thoughts, and think deeply on this passage, because sometimes we read it and move onto the next passage without considering just what Jesus is attempting to teach us.
Now that you understand it, come with me on this journey and allow me to share with you a deeper meaning of WHAT IT MEANS TO UNDERSTAND HOW JESUS CHRIST DAILY LIVES HIS LIFE IN YOU. It is often difficult to believe that we who are on this earth can really know ourselves to be always, without interruption, in His hands and under His power. How much clearer and more glorious the truth becomes when the Spirit reveals to us that Jesus Christ is in us. He is in us, not only as a tenant in a house or water in a glass, but rather like the soul is in the body moving every part and never separated from each other.
Yes, Jesus Christ dwells in us, penetrating our whole nature with His nature. The Holy Spirit came for the purpose of making Jesus deeply present within us. The sun is high in the firmament above me and yet, by its heat, penetrates my bones and marrow and quickens my whole life.
Likewise, the Lord Jesus, who is exalted high in heaven, penetrates my whole nature by His Spirit until all my willing, thinking, and feeling are moved by Him.
Once this fact is fully grasped, we no longer think of an external keeping through a person outside of us in heaven. We become convinced that our life is quickened by One who, in a divine manner, occupies the heart. Then we see how natural, how certain, and how blessed it is that the indwelling Jesus keeps the blessing and always maintains the fullness of the Spirit.
My Brothers and Sisters, I ask you today, is there anyone among you who is longing for this life in the fullness of blessing, yet is afraid to enter into it because he does not know how to persevere? Jesus will make this blessing continuous and sure. Is there any one of you who longs for it and cannot understand wherein the secret lies? The blessing is this, as Jesus Christ was with His disciples daily in bodily fashion, so He will, by His Spirit, daily live His life in you. No one can fully understand how things look on the top of a mountain until he himself has been there.
Although you do not understand everything, believe that the Lord Jesus has sent His Spirit with no other object in view than to keep you in His divine power. Trust Him for this. Let all burdens be laid aside to receive this blessing from Him as a fountain which He Himself will cause to spring up in you unto everlasting life.
Now as we pause at an unknown station on this journey for a moment in time, it is my hope that you have thought deeply on this question, “DO YOU UNDERSTAND HOW JESUS CHRIST DAILY LIVES HIS LIFE IN YOU?” Your thought process has allowed you to comprehend what it means to have Jesus living daily in your life, blessing you as you go about doing his will. Know that we have ministered this message to you and taken you on this journey today from the position of God’ PURPOSE that He has given to each of us, sent us on this journey to discover the truth that the truth will set us free and he done this in PEACE with all POWER centered in his hand because he told us that He was the true VINE and we are the BRANCES, Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bear much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing. By abiding in Jesus and He living inside of you, and you are truly committed to doing His will, you will enjoy real PROSPERITY. I remain your brother in Jesus Christ, Pastor Davis/Master Teacher!
