Complete Access to His Power
God knows what it is going to take to set you free from the course of this world. He knows you must grow in sensitivity to what He set in motion in you. The working that leads people to sin will side-track us from the purpose that works in us mightily, it keeps us from His best and from walking with Him. We have been given complete access to His power that puts to death the deeds of the body. Sin is separation from His way of doing things. The Kingdom of God is God’s way of doing things. It is His method of operation. The kingdom of this world has a way of operating and the Kingdom of God has a way of operating. Both kingdoms have a working power that leads people according to its desires. If our sins were held against us then there is no hope of deliverance, for it is by His working power we put to death the deeds of the body. We are blessed because His power is not withheld from us because of our sins. His power is provided to give us victory. Under the Old Covenant, man was required to be circumcised to show consecration, holiness, and separation to his covenant with God. Abraham was the first to set this covenant in motion but before that covenant of holiness God called Him righteous because of His faith. We have entered into this righteousness by a faith covenant that gives us full access to the power of God. Right-standing with God allows us access to everything He is and it is not through our self-achieved holiness.
8 Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin.
9 Cometh this blessedness then upon the circumcision only, or upon the uncircumcision also? for we say that faith was reckoned to Abraham for righteousness.
10 How was it then reckoned? when he was in circumcision, or in uncircumcision? Not in circumcision, but in uncircumcision.
11 And he received the sign of circumcision, a seal of the righteousness of the faith which he had yet being uncircumcised: that he might be the father of all them that believe, though they be not circumcised; that righteousness might be imputed unto them also:
We have His righteousness, and now full joint heirship with Christ because of Him taking our place. We have total access to His power that leads us to total victory.
We will continue tomorrow
Have a great day! 😊
