As born-again Christians, we desire to walk in the supernatural and manifest God’s power to a dying world. And rightly so. People need to see that we have something they don’t have but desperately need in their lives.
So, just what is it that we are to manifest that will cause the unsaved to sit up and take notice that we are different and serve a God who does exploits through us?
Do we have joy and peace in the midst of trials and tribulations or do we complain and bellyache the same way as our neighbors? Does our patience outlast the problems? Do we use our God-given authority and take dominion over the devil and his evil plans against us? Are we ready to lay hands on the sick and see recovery? Do we take our authority and use the power of God to overcome sickness and disease?
All of these questions should be answered “yes” if we’re in tune with the Holy Spirit and following His ways because He has come to manifest the Word of God and glorify Jesus. That’s what should be happening in our lives.
The Holy Spirit is constantly leading and guiding us into all TRUTH and magnifying Jesus. And isn’t that what we want – to magnify the Lord Jesus? When people get healed and set free, this glorifies the Lord and brings Him honor.
There’s a sick and dying world out there that needs to be introduced to Jesus and His Word. And just as He used signs, wonders, healing, and miracles to get the people’s attention, so should we. [John 14:12] Then when you have their attention, you have their ears. Tell them the Good News of the Gospel and give the glory to God!
Romans 1:16 (KJV) 16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.
John 14:12 (KJV) 12 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.
Mark 16:18 (KJV) 18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
Matthew 10:8 (KJV) 8 Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.
