Choose Life (Part Fifty-Three): Drink From the Waters (Part Eight).

The Power of "But:"

I guess that is what Oswald Chambers means when he says, 

"All Christians have the Spirit of Christ, but not all Christians have the mind of Christ." 

Not all are doing well on their sanctification journey, the second work of grace, on our journey to glory. Not all are well off the journey of growing into Christ in all things. [Ephesians 4:13]

However, this can only go on until we awake to the power of "BUT" and come to ourselves. It can only go on until the scales fall off our eyes until we are ready to go unto greater things, maturity. [Hebrews 6:1-3] When we are prepared to take hold as Christ has taken hold of us, then the whole equation changes. Our new day comes. And, we choose to drink from the waters. The creation will then see our glorious appearance as we arise to the place of our calling. May God make it so in our individual lives.

The Word our Differentiation:

Our differentiation is in each of us coming to the waters to drink of our own. [John 4:14, 7:38, 17:17; Isaiah 12:3; Psalm 36:8; Revelations 21:6-8, 22:1-2] It is in laying down our burdens at His feet, and leaving them there. [Mathew 11:28-29] it is in receiving the fullness of all that He Has already offered. [John 1:16] That is what gives the Father pleasure. No wonder the Psalmist says,

"Let them shout for joy and be glad, Who favor my righteous cause; And let them say continually, “Let the Lord be magnified, Who has pleasure in the prosperity of His servant.”" (Psalm 35:27, NKJV)

It is the Father's pleasure to give us the kingdom.
