Look at our example in Jesus. He was the most obedient man in history and He had a very exciting life! Jesus was gangsta. He cast out demons. He touched people and they were healed. He fed crowds. He flipped tables. He walked on water. He had a crew. He was the originator of swag.
We know God loves the “If you..then I..” promises. There is a beautiful passage of Scripture that tells us what’s in store for us if we are obedient. John 14:12-15 (KJV)
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it. If ye love me, keep my commandments.
The most important verse in that Scripture is “If ye love me, keep my commandments”. If we want to be able to do great works and be able to ask God for anything in the name of Jesus and see it be done, then we must keep His commandments. If we want to have a swag-a-licious life like Jesus, then we must keep God’s commands. It’s that simple.
Throughout my blogs, you’ll see me continue to reference this truth: Establish Within Yourself That God Cannot Lie. And I do this because it’s the foundation upon which we stand to walk in victory in this Christian life. If God cannot lie, then we can believe Him when He says, “the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do“ Why? “that the Father may be glorified in the Son.” Here comes a promise. “If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.” How do we show God that we love Him? “If ye love me, keep my commandments.”
To get to the place where we are able to believe and internalize every part of this Living Word, we must abide in God. We have to make Him our home. When we abide, then we obey. When we obey, then we receive. We cannot let the enemy talk us out of what God says is available to us.
Establish within yourself that God cannot lie. Your life will be far from boring and you can have the swag of Jesus!
Have a Blessed & Fantastic Day!
