Isaiah 33:24 AMP And no inhabitant [of Zion] will say, “I am sick”; The people who dwell there will be forgiven their wickedness [their sin, their injustice, their wrongdoing].

Every Christian is challenged such that their faith can grow. If faith is not challenged, it may not grow.

In every community, there is a code of conduct and laws which must be aligned with. Likewise in Zion, there are things we must do to manifest the life of God He has put in the inside of us.

Colossians 1.13 He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love,

Why are we not getting into the manifestation of this life and yet the Bible says that all things become new if anyone is in Christ Jesus? (2Corinthians 5.17)

Colossians 3.4 When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.

This life is a personality; Jesus Himself is living in us but our liberty comes with having knowledge and cooperating with Him in that specific area where we want to manifest His life. Remember with Him, all things are possible (John 8:32, Luke 18:37).

1 Corinthians 6:17,19

Jesus is the Spirit that has come to live in us and He was manifested that He may destroy the works of Satan. Therefore, when you receive healing and deliverance in a certain area of your life, that infirmity should not come back because there is an Occupant within you that has been given a Name that is above that all things should bow (1 John 3:8, Philippians 2:9-10).

Luke 22:42 saying, “Father, if it is Your will, take this cup away from Me; nevertheless not My will, but Yours, be done.”

Jesus could switch His lifestyle at will. Not only should we look at Him and copy from Him because He is living within us but we must learn from Him; to let go of our will and allow Him to reign in us.

Coming into this Zoe is by death; it is by the cross that we are translated from the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of light and when we die with Christ at the cross, He begins to live through us (Galatians 2:20).

Entrance into this kingdom requires us to;

  1. Engage our faith by believing in our hearts and declaring with our mouths (Romans 10:9).
  2. Exercising our will.

Deuteronomy 30:19-20

Heaven and earth are witnesses that we are not forced but we cross into this kingdom willingly.

Deuteronomy 32.4 He is the Rock, His work is perfect; For all His ways are justice, A God of truth and without injustice; Righteous and upright is He.

God is a God of truth and He is fair; He waits for your permission (waits for you to exercise your will) that He may live through you.

The Christian life is not a changed life but an exchanged life that can only become a reality when God takes over your life.

Luke 18:18-27

Christianity is not about having a good life but manifesting the God kind of life and that life can only be manifested in a yielded or surrendered vessel. Our role is to surrender to Jesus and let Him take over that His life might find expression through us.

A good example is Zacchaeus who engaged and surrendered his life to Jesus and his life was exchanged Luke 19:1-8.
