The Outworking Of The Word In You

To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God (Ephesians 3:10).

Do you know there’s something about us, the new  creation, that the angels can’t get over? The angels are glorious and wonderful beings. They’re excellent in glory and mighty in power, but they’re
amazed at what God has done with us, in us, and for us, because as glorious as they are, God doesn’t live in them, and as “unworthy” as we were, He gave us a new life and made us His living tabernacles. That remains a mystery to the angels; they don’t understand it.And
guess what? God chose us to explain it to them.The Church is to make the manifold  wisdom of God known to them. That’s why each time we preach about Jesus, and about the Holy Ghost, the angels love to listen. They enjoy it; they want to know more about the salvation that Jesus brought to man,
because it’s something that they only know from the scriptures. They don’t have an actual experience of it. They don’t know what it’s like; so, they hear it from us. That’s what the Apostle Paul alludes to in our opening verse when he says, “To the intent that now unto the
principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God” (Ephesians 3:10).It is, indeed, a great privilege and honour for us as the Church of Jesus Christ to explain God’s wisdom and mysteries to the angels. Now, if that’s part of our responsibility, it means we have to know the Word. We have to live in the Word and live out the Word. In other words, you have to be the expression of the Word of God; and that’s  real Christianity. It’s the expression  of God’s Word; the revelation  of His righteousness and His personality. We’re His epistles. 2 Corinthians 3:2 says, “Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men….” The epistle of Christ is the Word of Christ. The Word of Christ is the Word of God. So, we’re the epistles of Christ in flesh, which means we’re the Word of God in flesh, just like Jesus. True Christianity is the outworking of the Word in me and in you. Hallelujah!

Prayer

Dear Father, I thank you for your
Word is my life and it makes my
heart rejoice. Your commandment
is pure, enlightening the soul.
Your Word is more to be desired
than fine gold, and it’s sweeter
than honey and the honeycomb.
As I meditate and yield to your
Word, my life is transformed
from glory to glory, in Jesus’
Name. Amen.
