God’s wonderful ability in His children!
Everyone knows that God made us special …
… in His image and His likeness!
And Jesus came to give us life in abundance!
… with all that power and ability in man …
Why then is man … not living a God-like life?
For the very simple reason that …
… man expects God to do what man should do!
Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me,
the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works
than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
— John 14:12
God created us like Him and empowered us to be like Him …
… to be all that He is … in a human body!
God put His character in man … His inner image!
God put His position and authority on man … His likeness!
God gave man the abilit (blessed man – barak) to live that God-like life — Gen. 1:26-28
… and Jesus came to restore what man had lost; — John 10:10
What are we doing with all that power and ability in us?
Are we waiting for God or Jesus to do something?
… They have already done it all!
And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made;
and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.
— Gen. 2:2
When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, “It is finished”.
— John 19:30
Are you waiting for the Holy Spirit to do something?
… He is your helper, not the doer!
If you want to live in the fullness of what God has provided …
… then you have to act in the ability and position God gave you!
For as the body without the spirit is dead,
so faith without works is dead also.
— James 2:26
God has given us His ability, Jesus has restored us unto God …
… and given us the Holy Spirit to help us
Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above
all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us,.
— Eph. 3:20
God created us perfectly, blessed us abundantly, empowered us mightily …
