Let Christ be your only focus and standard.
Sonship in God through fruitful maturity is the revelation of Christ within His new creation Adam.
Galatians 1:15 But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother’s womb, and called me by His grace,
16 To reveal His Son in me, ● that I might preach Him among the Gentiles; immediately I conferred not with flesh and blood.
WE PREACH HIM, NOT OURSELVES TO MAKE A NAME FOR OURSELVES, NOR DO WE DISTORT THE REVELATION OF HIM THROUGH IMPURE MOTIVES OR SELFISH AMBITION.
2 Corinthians 4
1 Therefore since we have this ministry, as we have received mercy, we do not faint.
2 But we have renounced the hidden things of shame, not walking in craftiness, nor adulterating the Word of God, but by the revelation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God.
5 ● For we do not preach ourselves, but Christ Jesus as Lord, and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake.
As long as the fleshly ‘SELF’ rules and reigns, which speaks of the fallen, earthy, natural Adam with all his ideas, agendas and plans, the purity of Christ, UNVEILED IN HIS NEW CREATION RESTORED SPIRITUAL ADAM, shall always be distorted, misunderstood, misrepresented and perverted.
All doctrine and ministry must point men to Christ to present them perfect in Him as mature, disciplined fruit-bearing functioning heirs.
Colossians 1:18 And He is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things He might have the preeminence.
19 For it pleased the Father that in Him should all fullness dwell;
20 And, having made peace through the blood of His cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by Him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.
21 And you, that were once alienated and enemies in your mind by wicked works, yet now has He reconciled
22 In the body of His flesh through death, to present you holy and unblamable and unreprovable in His sight:
23 If you continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which you have heard, and which was preached to every creature who is under heaven; of which I Paul am made a minister;
24 Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up that which is behind of the afflictions of Christ in my flesh for His body’s sake, which is the church:
25 Of which I am made a minister, according to the commission of God which is given to me for you, to fulfill the word of God;
26 Even the mystery which has been hid from ages and from generations, but now is made manifest to His saints:
27 To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:
28 Whom we preach, warning every man, and teaching every man in all wisdom; that we may present every man perfect in Christ Jesus:
29 For which I also labor, striving according to His working, who works in me mightily.
AND SO THUS WE CONTINUE UNTIL HIS GREAT COMMISSION HAS BEEN COMPLETED
His reigning heirs operates through His divine nature of love by which we advance God’s Kingdom within the earth 🌎 in fulfillment of the Lord’s prayer.
