It is a faithful saying: For if we be dead with him, we shall also live with him: If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us: If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself.
II Timothy 2:11-13
Living in The Spirit challenges us to the enjoyment of the fullness of God, His power and love, but also to the fellowship of His suffering. The fellowship of Christ’s suffering is accepting that the difficulties of living life and life more abundantly have come to make and equip us to actually live in the life and life more abundantly promised. It is the difficulties of life’s situations that promote us to an understanding and witness for God. As a witness, having first hand experience, we see God where we are, in that which is before us , and that which we proclaim. It is one thing to say God will provide, it is another to be a witness that God provides. Do not run away from life’s difficulties instead see them as an opportunity to experience the power of Christ’s resurrection. For if we die with Him, we will reign with Him! Let’s Go In through life’s difficulties as a way to see, experience, and possess the fullness of God’s power and love in our lives, the gateway to our promised life and life more abundantly!
