OUR SPHERE of ACTION
BY: RAY PRINZING
“God has made us what we are, creating us in Christ Jesus for the good deeds which are prepared beforehand by God as our sphere of action.”
Certainly the world is heavy laden with its wearisome activity, yet God has a perfect design for every life, and hath beforehand prepared our sphere of action. Thus, we stand in need of divine instruction and a clearer understanding that we might perceive the ways of God – forsaking the confusion of earthly struggles. God is separating unto Himself a people, and He has ways of stripping them of a lot of useless activity, that in quietness they might learn of Him whose yoke is easy, and whose burden is light.
All some have for a goal is to gain heaven that they might escape what they have been taught is hell. Besides the fact that their theology is all wrong, there is little we can say for this ambition, this noble endeavor. God has a plan for every life that far exceeds such an existence, self-centered and empty.
We long to break the barrier of impotence so that nothing is impossible, that is true, but the sons of God are not just manifest by what they do, but what they are, for it is not just a doing, but a BEING. When our state of being is union with Him, His nature, His image, then the doing that follows is simply an outward expression of the indwelling life.
“Not every one that saith unto Me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of My Father which is in heaven.”
