John 12:26 "If anyone serves Me, let him follow Me; and where I am, there My servant will be also. If anyone serves Me, him My Father will honor.
What He is saying here is that He expects us to be in position, so that we can handle the ball when it is given to us.
It’s important to know who we are in Christ. We have been given the mind of Christ and have been made partakers of His divine nature.
2 Peter 1:3-4 as His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, 4by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust.
Just as an athlete has to know what he is capable of before making great plays, we must know what we are capable of in Christ.
In 1 Samuel 14 there’s the story of Jonathan and his armor bearer that won a great victory for the nation of Israel. In the beginning of the story Jonathan steps in faith based on what He knew His God was capable of. This helped him to know his position and what he could accomplish from that position.
We are told in Scripture that we are:
- More than conquerors in Him – Romans 8:37
- He always leads us in triumph – 2 Corinthians 2:14
- We can do all things through Christ who strengthens us – Phil. 4:13
This is our position in Christ from which we operate. What can you do for God based on that? The playing field is wide open.
God is desiring to do great things in our lives, so let’s put on the armor of light and be about our Father’s business. He wants to use us and bless us more than we can comprehend or imagine.
