Apostle Grace Lubega
Colossians 3:1 (MSG); So if you’re serious about living this new resurrection life with Christ, act like it.
It is unfortunate that today, we are increasingly witnessing a lazy approach to the life of Christianity.
We have believers who pray when they feel like it, fast when they wish to, give only as led by their feelings and evangelise only when reminded to.
Some have no regard for spiritual things. If the enemy attacks them, they accept it meekly as their lot in life. This is evident in how they deal with the devil; they can never stand up tall as men and women of authority and command him to take his hands off what is theirs. If they meet a sick person, they do not have the courage or faith to pray for such a person.
As such, many Christians profess to know a God whose power they can never demonstrate. In fact, there seems to be no difference between a believer and an atheist.
Is this God’s desire for His children? Of course not!
Who is a Christian? Who is a tongue speaking child of God? What kind of life does a man filled with the Spirit of God live? Christianity was birthed in power, has been preserved by power and will continue to stand by this same power.
God demands greater zeal, tenacity, commitment and daring from us as His children. You must live the kind of life that causes those around you to acknowledge the fact that you are not ordinary. Refuse to be normal! Be deliberate in stepping out in faith and the boldness of the Spirit because God lives in you.

GOLDEN NUGGET: Christianity was birthed in power, has been preserved by power and will continue to stand by this same power.
PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this truth. Thank You for Your Spirit. I have the consciousness of God in me. I live life boldly and with great faith because I know who I am. I refuse to be ordinary and predictable. I am shaking my nation and the world because the greater one lives in me, in Jesus’ name, Amen.
