Freely Receive, Freely Give!

This was the very instruction Jesus gave to His disciples before sending them out, and we need to know that this is the same instruction He has given us, His children! The very same works Jesus did, the same works His disciples and the early Church performed, are the same works we have the power to perform today, on this earth. It is our mandate, we are to go out and through the power of God at work inside us, see many set free from the oppression of the enemy. We live in a desperate world, many people are looking for answers in all the wrong places, the only answer can be found in Jesus and His Word! It’s essential for us to take the work Jesus commissioned us to do seriously. Ephesians 2:10 tells us we are His handiwork on this earth! We are to carry out every good work His Own Spirit within us has empowered us to do!  We are to see healings, deliverances, breakthroughs and salvations through believing in and declaring His Name (Mark 16:17-18). We don’t do it in our own strength or our own name, we do it in the powerful name of Jesus Christ! Luke 4:18 explains very clearly what we have been anointed to do! It was Isaiah’s prophecy of Jesus – saying how He was anointed to preach the Gospel and declare people set free and healed!  This wasn’t exclusively for Jesus alone to walk in. In John 14:12, Jesus said, “I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, if anyone steadfastly believes in Me, he will himself be able to do the things that I do; and he will do even greater things than these, because I go to the Father.”  We really don’t have any excuse! He has sent us to go out and do what He did through His power at work in us! Freely we have received, freely we are to give what He has placed on the inside of us.
