Living The Truth

When we truly believe what we say we know then we cannot but
live according to the Truth of it. This is the goal of growth,
to demonstrate Truth. We can hunger for it, seek it, choose
it, accept it, know it, and believe it, but until we
demonstrate it we have fallen short. Everything is geared
towards this end.

Why does God save sinners, call disciples, establish the
Church, and raise up overcomers? To demonstrate the
preeminence of Christ over all, beginning with each disciple,
then the Church corporately, and all creation collectively. We
see this happening with the early Church in the Book of Acts.
Gradually the Church was brought to such a low state that the
Lord had to call upon Overcomers to stand on behalf of the
Church. Even so, God is steadily and progressively working all
things together for good, bringing us to the full-knowledge of
Truth (Christ). What is the purpose of this fullness? It is
not so we can be a walking spiritual encyclopedia. His desire
is to demonstrate the Truth in us. What Truth? That He
overcomes sin, self, and satan. That in Him is Life, and Life
abundant. That He is All in All, and we are complete in Him.
That we, in Him, overcome just as He overcame.

His Kingdom, His Reality, transcends the earthly realm in
which we live. It is more real than this world. We need vision
in order see beyond the earthly and into the heavenly – beyond
the natural and into the supernatural. When we see as He sees,
we will see how finite this world is, how limited, how
temporal. We will see ourselves in Him, and we will begin to
demonstrate His preeminence here and now: “as in heaven, so in
earth.”
