1 Corinthians 4:20 ( MESSAGE)
God’s Way is not a matter of MERE TALK; it’s an EMPOWERED LIFE
1 Corinthians 4:20 (LIVING BIBLE)
For the Kingdom of God is not just a lot of talk; it is LIVING by God’s POWER
KEY TERM 1 – KINGDOM OF GOD – A king exercises dominion. To have dominion, you must have a domain. You are God’s representative on earth. Heaven’s government – the authority and governance structure of heaven is invested in your hands. You are a minister plenipotentiary ready to execute the agenda of heaven.
KEY TERM 2 – POWER – dunamis – dynamic ability to cause change. Inherent ,self propelled. Power on power.
Ever felt like you were drowning? You were going under. On the cliff hang. I have got news for you. There is a power that is bigger than power. That power is called DUNAMIS. It is a supernatural power. It is the dynamic (self propelled) ability that causes changes. This power is the life of God in the human spirit. It’s a game changing, life transforming, situation redeeming, door opening, life raising, hell shutting power. This power is not just protective or restorative – it’s creative, transformative and progressive.
This power has a great history – it opened the Red Seas, it shut the mouth of lions, it fed multitudes, it raised Christ from the dead, it opened blind eyes. The big news is that, that power now lives in you. You will never live a defeated life for another day when you know that “dunamis” is in you.
Declare it – I am empowered!
