TUESDAY, DECEMBER 31
Scripture: Matthew 10:14,15
Jesus told the Twelve that they were going to be used judicially. He told them that whoever would not receive them nor hear their words would find themselves in judgment, in a place that was less tolerable than Sodom and Gomorrah. Who were they, to carry that anointing? Were they really that important, that whoever would not hear them would suffer a fate worse than Sodom and Gomorrah? Who were they? But we can play the ‘Who are we?’ game forever but the ‘who?’ is not the issue. The issue is God’s choosing and our response to His choice. The issue is not us – it is ‘Who is God is in us?’. Are we willing to humble ourselves? Are we willing to repent? Are we willing to be transparent? Are we committed to seeking Christlikeness in character? Are we willing to lay our lives down for others? The issue is not ‘who are we?’! The issue is Who is God in us and are we willing to yield to Him? If we are, then He will establish the Judgment Seat of Christ at our feet. He did at Peter’s and look at Peter’s failure. There is a transformation that God wants to do for the end-time church. But we have to get over ourselves. We have to see the pattern in Scripture and we have to be willing to walk it out. I trust that we will!
