TODAY’S PROPHETIC NUMBER – 2/4/2023
1 Corinthians 2:4 – And my speech and my preaching were not with persuasive words of human wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power.
Be the person of God who not only teaches Jesus but demonstrates His character to the world through selfless acts of service. Let your motive for everything you do and say be simply “Jesus.” Determine to do everything with excellence and commitment. Live in a constant awareness that nothing is impossible.
Declaration: I live to see God’s will done on earth as it is in heaven. I treat people the way people in heaven are treated.
Tribe of Jesus
In Mark 2, four reckless friends dig through someone’s roof to get their friend to Jesus. And Jesus, Creator of the Universe, keeps right on preaching until they’ve finished, ignoring the commotion around him while people protest and debris falls on his head. Jesus waits and the crowd either wonders what he’ll say or assumes he’s about to put these line-cutters in their place.
At this point, Scripture says Jesus sees their faith, then both heals the paralytic’s body and forgives his sins, raising the ire of the ultra-religious in the crowd. And, at this point, the scribes start accusing him of blasphemy.
By now, everyone’s wondering what kind of person Jesus is and what kind of people make up his tribe. His crew isn’t cautious. They aren’t caught up in social graces, education, or flawlessness.
One look at the demographics of the disciples tells you his tribe consists of people from across the spectrum. On top of all that, people called him a glutton, a “friend of sinners,” and a blasphemer in league with Satan, which reflected on each one of them!
What every one of them had in common was: Get to Jesus and take your friend with you.
Jesus has a tribe. Everyone in the tribe identifies as his disciple, his follower. Everyone has the same goal. They believe Jesus is who he claims to be, the Messiah, and that he can do anything.
Are you part of Jesus’ tribe? Do you know someone you need to bring into Jesus’ presence? Figure out what it will take to get them there. If you don’t know, good news! Jesus knows. Accept Jesus’ invitation and ask the Holy Spirit to prepare others’ hearts to do the same.
“For whoever does the will of My Father in heaven is My brother and sister and mother.” – Matthew 12:50
