“Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.”
The scriptures make us to understand that all of God’s interest on the earth is man, who He made as a duplicate of Him, to reign as king Gen. 1:26-28; Psa. 8:4-6; Rev. 5:9-10. Through the fall of Adam, man lost this enviable status and position. But God has not relented in getting every man back to His original status for man on the earth Psa. 74:12; Rms. 8:32. In essence, getting man to be saved from sin is not the ultimate of God, rather it is the beginning. The ultimate of God is to have all men restored back to their royal status as king, and for them to reign on the earth 1Pet. 2:9. Now, we need to understand that God has appointed His house as the place for raising kings out of peasants Oba. 1:21.
Since the week began, we have been engaged in the study of scripture on the relevance of believers being committed to fellowship in church with brethren. Our emphasis has been on the new converts being gathered into the church, and helped to remain committed. I am trusting God that today’s teaching will impart fresh grace on you.
The Importance of getting new converts to become established in the church.
The church is the place where God places His teaching priests to impart knowledge to His children, which is a prerequisite to have our inheritance become a reality. The more committed the new convert is to church, the more the knowledge of God he will have, which will lead his access to more of his inheritance.
There forces of the spirit are at work in the church to make the believer gain access to the light in the word. One of such forces it the sprinkling of the blood Heb. 12:22-24. Scriptures that a believer have read at home suddenly comes alive with new light as it is read in church, thus delivering the blessing it contains.
We have the five-fold ministry operating in the church, and one of it is the Teacher, who is anointed to give clarity on scriptures to the believer. With the end result of helping the believer to see and lay hold on his right in Christ. But it takes getting to the church to enjoy this awesome provision.
The church is God’s appointed depot for His blessing on the earth. In essence, everyone that desires the blessing of God must get to His depot for it, and that is the church. The more our new converts are committed to the church, the more they access their desired blessing in life.
There is no gain saying about this truth, the security of a new convert is in commitment to the church. We must therefore labor to see all our new converts become established with us in the church. Remember, it is them doing this that we qualify for the reward of our labor in the kingdom.
Jesus is Lord!
Father in the name of Jesus, I receive the grace for tireless commitment to the ingathering of all my converts and contacts until they are turned into active disciples of Christ Jn. 17:12.
Go after all your new converts; encourage them in their walk with God and show them the blessedness of regular attendance of church services.
Be empowered with might in your inner man to see all your converts established in this church!
I decree the reward for your labor in the kingdom shall be delivered with speed!
