growing closer to Christ and to be at one with him!
BEING ONE IN CHRIST JESUS
by Chaplain Jimmie W. Warren
Greeting brothers and sisters of the lord if you have not given your life to Jesus /Yeshua this is the time to think hard where you stand with the Lord for time is running out while today is the day you have been warned. Jesus freely gave his life to save you, but what have you given to him?
Below are four questions to ask yourself and answer them honestly.
Have you repented of your sins?
Have you been Baptized in the name of our Lord God Yahweh?
Have you asked the Lord Jesus to come into your life and change your old ways?
Where are you in your CHRISTIAN walk in your life right now?
I am going to give lots of scriptures to show how you should be in living like Christ? After all being a Christian is to be like Christ or at least trying to do your best by asking God to help build your faith as you strive to live the best way you know how but doing it without God will not work!
Lets start by turning to ( Ephesians 2:10) "God is our maker and in union with Jesus Christ he has created us for a life of good works, which he has already prepared for us to do." see (Galatians 6:14-16)
We are all one in Christ!
read (Ephesians 2:6-10; Galatians 6:8-10)
Jesus said "I did not come to do away with the Law but to fulfill it!, The dictionary says to fulfill is to complete something so when Jesus hang on the cross he said "IT IS FINISHED" which means done!
Brother Paul said " I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness comes through the law, then Christ died for nothing." (Ephesians 2:21)
Jesus abolished the law by fulfilling it all, by taking it to the cross with him for He became the Law and all it's traditions, He is our true rest with God, as long as we are in union with him, by the gift of the Holy Spirit see (Ephesians 2:6-22 ) see verse 21 -22 this puts it all together for you!
Now turn to (Galatians 5:13) " you were called to be free but do not let this freedom become an excuse for letting your physical desires rule over you, instead let Love make you serve one another". Verse 14 for the whole law is summed up in one commandment "Love your neighbor as yourself
Let the Holy Spirit direct your lives for the spirit leads you then you are not subject to any law made by man!
Read about those without the Holy Spirit (Galatians 5: 18-26) " But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under law. The acts of the sinful nature are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions and envy; drunkenness, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I did before, that those who live like this will not inherit the kingdom of God.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. Those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the sinful nature with its passions and desires. Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit. Let us not become conceited, provoking and envying each other
If you live by the spirit of the Law and have given yourself over to the Lord, living in union with him, living by faith, the Law is then written on your hearts and in your minds.
See (Philippians 2:13-15)." Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling. For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.
Do all things without murmurings and disputing: That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world;"
Help carry one another's burdens and keep an eye on yourself by praying always day and night Be careful as we read in ( Galatians 6:3) Don't fool yourself by thinking you are better than anyone because we are all sinners and saved by the blood of Jesus you are bought and paid for by him and belong to him with him you are in union with our father Yahweh God. (Galatians 6:10) So then as often as we have a chance we should do good to everyone, but especially to those who belong to our Family in the faith.
Now turn to ( Ephesians 1:3-6) It was God the Father who called you to be one with him through the Lord Jesus Christ read more in verse 7-11)
Read these when you get a chance (Galatians 6;23; Galatians 5:22-26; Colossians 1:15-20; Colossians 2:14-25; Romans 9:30-33)
(Ephesians 2:15-19) Having abolished in his flesh the enmity, even the law of commandments contained in ordinances; for to make in himself of twain one new man, so making peace;
And that he might reconcile both unto God in one body by the cross, having slain the enmity thereby:
And came and preached peace to you which were afar off, and to them that were nigh.
For through him we both have access by one Spirit unto the Father. Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of God;
(EPHESIANS 3:6) THE SECRET IS THIS, BY MEANS OF THE Gospel Gentiles (all mankind) have a part with the Jews in God's blessing; they are members of the same body, and share in the promise that God made in Christ Jesus.
We are one in Faith see ending (Ephesians 2:11-22)
Live a life that measures up to the standard God set when he called you! (Ephesians 4:2-6)
Let Jesus make a home in your hearts and minds through Faith (Ephesians 3:17-21)
UNITY OF THE BODY
" Read on Ephesians 3 verses 25-32 no more sinning that you know of, change, pray, love everyone, be of a new mind and live by faith. Do not live like you always have, be at peace with everyone see (Ephesians 4:23-24) you must change by giving of yourself through Christ Jesus, so that all of us, Jews first then the world, are able to come in one spirit into the presence of our Father Yahweh! Amen.
We must all change and humans hate change but where the spirit is strong you can over come your human nature. Live day by day repent everyday because, we are all human and we sin in some way against God so, You are cleaned by the blood of Jesus and become a new creature in Christ, we must clean our hearts and minds by asking for forgiveness.
We are all one in Jesus Christ by faith not by any laws we try to keep but through salvation alone through Jesus /Yeshua Messiah. Amen! Put on Christ humility and greatness follow his example.
(Philippians 1:27-30) " Only let your conversation be as it becometh the gospel of Christ: that whether I come and see you, or else be absent, I may hear of your affairs, that ye stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel; And in nothing terrified by your adversaries: which is to them an evident token of perdition, but to you of salvation, and that of God. For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake;"
We are too think as one, believe as one, love as one in Yeshua Messiah our Lord. Yes it is all in Jesus our Lord of Lords and King of kings, so let's stand together as one, praying for Jesus to return soon. Amen and Amen!
Do not forget to pray for one another always even your enemy we are to pray for. Now stand with your maker ,your brother and sister's, lets stand as one before our God and pray everyday "Thy Kingdom Come" for one day you and all your loved ones will rise out of the grave and stand before our Lord of Lords and King of Kings.
May this be a helping to you, please share it with everyone as a loving brother or sister for we are all one in Christ.
Your chaplain and brother Jimmie Warren
