On Pastor Chris Teaching we learn that we are full. “And in him, he is made full who is the head of principality and power” The question Pastor Chris asks is what are we full of. Pastor Chris expounds on this many times.
Full of the Word
In Rhapsody of realities we learn that “The Christian is born of the Word, and as a result, he can only be built and nurtured by the Word. (1 Peter 2:2) says, “As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby.” The Word of God can build and transform any area of your life.
The Word is life
God’s Word doesn’t just give life, it’s life. Jesus said, “It is the Spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you, they are Spirit, and they are life” (John 6:63). When you’re studying or listening to the Word, life is either imparted to your spirit, or your spirit is being built and educated. Only the Word of God has the ability to do this. His Word works.
If you find yourself in a downward spiral of sin you have to act on his word. Declare that you are alive to God as the thoughts of sin are dead. You are dead to the habit but alive to god.
“Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof.”
Through this, we learn that Christ sets you free because you can discharge it from your body. You are in charge and can say no and when you do it. You can disallow it and it won’t reign in you. I am not afraid of darkness or evil as they don’t have any dominion over me.
They don’t influence children of god and when you affirm this message you are transferred into the kingdom of God’s dear Son. Say, “I live in the Kingdom of Light.”
Live the word
The Lord gave us His Word. There is no hope unless you open your heart to the word. You should receive the word which is able to save our souls. You have to act on His word. Pastor Chris urges us to act on it for our own benefit. Pastor Chris admonished us for playing a game because of the detrimental harm it causes our souls. “Those who do not act on the Word walk in darkness.”
Joy in the Word
Do not go through the motions as it does not make you happy. When you were born again there was joy in you. It is up to you to live joyfully. It is a choice as it has nothing to do with your experiences, you can be joyful in trouble. Joy has expressions and praise is an expression of joy. Singing songs of praise is an expression of joy.
Inc James 5:13 we hear, “Is anyone among you in trouble? Let them pray. Is anyone happy? Let them sing songs of praise.” Pastor Chris says that if you are not happy you cannot make others happy or preach the Gospel. When Paul and Silas were in prison they sang and praised God. Their song was heard and a miracle happened, an earthquake shook the prison and they were freed. You can live your life joyfully whatever your circumstances.
