Luke 9:1-2, KJV “Then he called his twelve disciples together, and gave them power and authority over all devils, and to cure diseases. And he sent them to preach the kingdom of God, and to heal the sick.”
2 Corinthians 5:20, NKJV “Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us; we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God.”
Jesus has called, equipped, and sent us.
We are called to be Ambassadors for Christ; our commissioning service is to represent Christ to the world. We must ultimately depend on God for our every source. Identity crisis = confusion. Lose your identity; lose your power.
Don’t look to others to meet needs that only Christ can meet.
Becoming distracted with looking inward we lose focus of our calling. Not doing what Jesus called and equipped us to do, we will lose our power. When our Spirit lines up with the Holy Spirit, we have the Power and authority to represent Jesus wherever we go.
