Relationship: The Key Component to a Fruitful Life

Relationship: The Key Component to a Fruitful Life | KingdomNomics.comScripture: Romans 6:11, NLT

So you also should consider yourselves to be dead to the power of sin and alive to God through Christ Jesus.” (Romans 6:11, NLT)

This is an incredible statement to be making to the believer in Jesus Christ. By his sacrifice Jesus Christ has made us dead to the power of sin.

We see this reality take place in our life when, by the power of the Holy Spirit, we put to death the misdeeds of the body. Sure, the old nature lurks around, always trying to re-assert itself (which it does, if the Spirit is not in control of us).

What a Savior!

What a Savior! | KingdomNomics.comScripture: John 1:29, NIV

The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him and said, ‘Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!’” (John 1:29, NIV)

I never get tired of hearing God’s wonderful plan of salvation. It is truly all a work of God. The Lamb of God, Jesus Christ, takes away the sin of the world. That includes my sin and your sin. He does it without our works, behavior, or anything else:

For it is not possible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins.” (Hebrews 10:4, NLT)

We are told, “My dear children, I am writing this to you so that you will not sin. But if anyone does sin, we have an advocate who pleads our case before the Father. He is Jesus Christ, the one who is truly righteous. He himself is the sacrifice that atones for our sins—and not only our sins but the sins of all the world.” (1 John 2:1–2, NLT)

God’s Word is Food for the Soul

God’s Word is Food for the Soul | KingdomNomics.comScripture: Matthew 4:4, NIV

Jesus answered, ‘It is written: “Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.”’ (Matthew 4:4, NIV)

There you have it. If we are going to experience a true spiritual life renewal, we need to know and receive the Word of God, “but has now been revealed by the appearing of our Savior Jesus Christ, who has abolished death and brought life and immortality to light through the gospel.” (2 Timothy 1:10, NKJV)

Without God’s Word we are weak, ignorant vessels, losing our way in this complex world system dedicated to keep us from discovering and living the truth.

We Have Work to Do

We Have Work to Do | KingdomNomics.comScripture: John 17:3–4, NIV

Now this is eternal life: that they know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent. I have brought you glory on earth by finishing the work you gave me to do.” (John 17:3–4, NIV)

This is eternal life: knowing God and Jesus Christ.

Jesus came into the world to give the world this message. Without him, there is no hope of personal salvation. Those who accept this truth will enjoy a life that will echo into eternity.

The Power to Love is Sourced in the Holy Spirit

The Power to Love is Sourced in the Holy Spirit | KingdomNomics.comScripture: Romans 5:5, NIV

“…And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.” (Romans 5:5, NIV)

It is only through God’s power that we can love others in the way he desires. This is confirmed by this verse:

“…For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.” (2 Timothy 1:7, ESV)

The Power of Deep Convictions

The Power of Deep Convictions | KingdomNomics.comScripture: 1 Thessalonians 1:5, NIV

“…Because our gospel came to you not simply with words but also with power, with the Holy Spirit and deep conviction. You know how we lived among you for your sake.” (1 Thessalonians 1:5, NIV)

A major problem in our world is that many people lack deep convictions to govern their attitudes and life actions. In the minds of many there are no absolutes, and it is okay for each person to do as they please.

Broken Cisterns

The Word of God gives us the nourishment we need to live abundantly in this world | KingdomNomics.comScripture: Jeremiah 2:13, NIV

My people have committed two sins: They have forsaken me, the spring of living water, and have dug their own cisterns, broken cisterns that cannot hold water.” (Jeremiah 2:13, NIV)

Many people in the secular world look for life in the wrong places. Believers always need to be on their guard to avoid making this same mistake.

Notice this verse begins with “My people.” They are accused of making to two big mistakes: forsaking the true source of life and looking to alternate sources for meeting their needs.

Open My Eyes

Through the Word, we gain understanding of God’s eternal plan and our role in it | KingdomNomics.comScripture: Psalm 119:18, ESV

Open my eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of your law.” (Psalm 119:18, ESV)

To understand the Word of God, we need special revelation from God through the Holy Spirit. Revelation and transparency are the hallmarks in any relationship.

Jesus promised that both he and the Father would make their home with us and reveal themselves to us if we obeyed their commandments.

Avoiding Mission Drift

WATCH to keep on mission | KingdomNomics.comScripture: Matthew 25:13, NIV

Therefore keep watch, because you do not know the day or the hour.” (Matthew 25:13, NIV)

We are counseled in Scripture to watch for many things. We are particularly told to be on the look out for the return of the Lord, which can happen at anytime. Our time bubble can pop at anytime, thrusting us into the eternal paradigm.

We need to guard against mission drift. Converterlators are on mission and need to keep on mission. The following acrostic, W-A-T-C-H, can help us keep on mission.

Focus on Christ | KingdomNomics.comScripture: Matthew 2:12, ESV

And being warned in a dream not to return to Herod, they departed to their own country by another way.” (Matthew 2:12, ESV)

Notice the wise men were told not to go back to Herod. In many ways, Herod symbolizes the world system. Nothing in the world system encourages us to be engaged in a relationship with Jesus Christ. The value system of the kingdom is in opposition to that of the world.
