The Greater One Lives in You!
Today, if the world is going to see Jesus, theyll have to see Him through us. Were His physical Body! If His Body doesnt preach the gospel, the gospel doesnt get preached. If His Body does not lay hands on the sick, then His ministry to them is cut short. That thought surprises some people. They think Jesus changed somehow after He was resurrected and went to heaven. They think He stopped being interested in ministering personally to people like He did on the shores of Galilee. But Jesus didnt change. He is the same yesterday, and today and forever (Hebrews 13:8). He still wants to preach the Word of God to people. He still wants to cast out demons and heal the sick. And He still has the power to do all those thingsand even greater things (John 14:12)! How does He get them done? Through you and me. Point your finger at yourself right now and say out loud, I am the Body of the Anointed One. He is living right now in me! When that truth becomes a reality to you, impossible tasks wont overwhelm you anymore. You wont faint or give up, because youll know that God is in you, and He has the power to get the job done. When He calls you to preach and you cant talk very well, youll just say, Well, thats all right. The Anointed One is in me and Hell give me utterance. When someone whos sick comes to you for prayer, you wont want to bolt and run. Youll be eager to lay hands on that person because youll know the Healer lives in you, and when you lay hands on someone, Hes there to bring that healing to pass! The Greater One lives in you! Now, believe it! Live like it! Numbers 7:49-78; Luke 24 Greater is He who lives in me than he that is in the world. 1 John 4:4
