"A Church Committed To Christ, Caring For The Community & Communicating God's Love
To A Changing World"
Sunday's Message - 4th September 2016
“Aligning with Christ"
Elder Peter Lim
At the June Bible camp, we heard about being Awakened, Aligned and Assigned.
Today I will give three words to correspond with the Camp messages – They are Word, Walk and Works.
Word: Without experiencing the love of the living Word Christ himself, His written word will have little impact or benefit to us. It's only after experiencing the love of Christ that we may progress to transformation and works. ( Eph 3:19 )
Walk: How far and how close we choose to walk with Christ will determine how much we can experience His love. This is aligning with Christ, that we must move from our comfort zone to get in line with Him. Our will, values, thoughts must be adjusted to His.Indications that we are out of alignment can be anything in this world that we are placing above the things of God. Not bearing fruit, our lack of zeal and enthusiasm for the interests of the Kingdom. We may lose our bearings from time to time and what we need to do is to get realigned. We do this by making adjustments in the areas of our life that is out of order.
Works: John 15: 4,5 says that we must be aligned with Christ before we can bear fruit from our works. 1 Cor 3:15: our works can be burned as wood, stubble and hay if we are working for the wrong reasons, it may be doing works that God did not assign to us. However, we are saved.Mt 7:22,23: These are workers of iniquity who are wolves in sheep clothing. They are doing the things of God without knowing Him, hence Jesus declared to them, "I never knew you." These are not saved.Rom 7:6: Let us serve and work in the newness of the Spirit and not work under a religious or legalistic attitude where there will be all kinds of envy and strife.Let’s progress from where we are to transformation and do the works that were prepared for us, beyond salvation. Indeed, we were made for more. Amen.
