Hebrews, and the Rest of God, 8

Therefore let no man glory in men. For all things are yours; whether Paul, or Apollos, or Cephas, or the world, or life, or death, or things present, or things to come; all are yours; and ye are Christ’s; and Christ is God’s. (I Corinthians 3:21-23)
The wisdom and power of the Holy Spirit are always ready to enable every believer to enter that place of peace and trust. Our task is to keep committing every one of our actions, every one of our words, and every one of our thoughts to Jesus so He can become the center of all that we are and all that we do.
Rest in the center of the Being and will of Christ is the only place of righteousness, peace, and joy on the earth, under the earth, in the heavens, above the heavens, and in every other place that we may be in God’s creation.
God Almighty has given us all things in Christ. Are we determined enough to seek after and obtain all the inheritance?
All the blessing?
Or are we coming short of the rest of God?
All the riches of God’s universe have been given to mankind as an inheritance. The world is God’s creation. Christ is God’s concept of what mankind is to be. Our being made one in God, and God in us, is a guarantee that we indeed shall live forever, possessing within ourselves the power of an endless and indestructible life.
Why are belief and obedience so important?
Because belief and obedience on our part are necessary if we are to:
Trust God for our material needs.
Trust God for our spiritual needs and our pleasure, as we worship God through Christ and resist and reject the worship of satan and sin.
Trust God for what we are to achieve in life, believing that if we do His will faithfully each day, good fruit will come from us and what we are assigned to accomplish in the world will be accomplished.
