May 4, 2022 – You Share Jesus’ Nature
Sermon: 2173 – In the Twinkling of an Eye
Pray Over This
“For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in Christ will rise first.”
When I was a little boy, near our house there used to be a scrap yard. There were all kinds of metals in that scrap yard, and there was a great magnet on a crane that would move steel and iron from one place to another. If you were to take one of those great magnets and sweep it across the ground, not every piece of metal would rise. Only those made of iron would rise. Why is that? Because the iron has the same nature as the magnet. If you have the same nature as Jesus Christ, when He comes again, you’re the one going up, whether you’re beneath the ground or on top of the ground. You’re the one going up. If you’ve been Heaven-born, you will be Heaven-bound because you share the nature of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Take time to read Galatians 5:22-25 to learn about the fruit of having the same nature as Jesus. Reflect on where this fruit (or lack thereof) is found in your life and respond to God appropriately.
