It is our belief in Christ Chapel that it is up to the Church to pray God’s will into the earth because Jesus says: “I will build my Church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give unto thee the keys of the Kingdom of heaven”. (Matthew 16:18-19). Jesus has given us the authority to release His will on earth through prayer.
Acts 4:32-33 “The multitude of them that believe were of one heart and one soul…and with great power gave the apostles witness of the resurrection of the Lord Jesus: and great grace was upon them all.”
Eccl 5; 18,19 “Behold that which I have seen : it is good and comely for one to eat and drink , and to enjoy the good of all his labour that he taketh under the sun all the days of his life, which God giveth him : for it is his portion. Every man also to whom God hath given riches and wealth , and hath given him power to eat thereof , and to take his portion , and to rejoice in his labour ; it is the gift of God”
We need to understand that when God give gift to you it is an out flow of grace, for you to rely on grace for something to happen to you is to connect with the ability of God to make things happen for you in the way your strength cannot produce. That is what grace does with fruitfulness. What God is requiring from us is to lean on His grace rather than on our strength. If you are a self-made man you cannot be a God-made man.
If you are going to bring fruitfulness to the fullest; you must be a person of grace who lean on grace, you have a portion on this earth and God will not bypass you to give your portion to another.
How do you open yourself to this grace?
The way you access grace is when you do what Matt 28 say s when you go to God and you receive of Him, it is what you receive of Him that will release grace for you in that circumstance and it is the grace that is released in that circumstance that enables you to partake of what God has for you- your portion.
Matt 11:28,29 says “Are you tired, worn out, burn out on religion, come to me, get away with me and you will recover your life. I will show you how to take a real rest. Work with me and walk with me, watch how I do it, learn the unfalsed rhythm of grace”.
When you come to God, what is released to you is grace to walk in, and when grace is released to you; it is fruitfulness that occurs.
It is grace that will cause fruitfulness to happen; more than ever before we have to open our lives to the grace of God because that is how to enjoy the gift that God has for us.
