Desperate – Old testament Before Christ = desperate After Jesus (born again) – A continued and growing revelation of how much you need Jesus, and that He has all you need and Is all you need! NEED HIM!
Revelation 3:17 “Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing‘ - and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked - (NIV) NEED NOTHING!
2 Peter 1 2 Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord, 3 According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue: “I NEED HIM!”
2 Peter 1 4 by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust OUR NEED OF HIM!
Ephesians 3:10... so that the manifold wisdom of God might now be made known through the church to the rulers and the authorities in the heavenly places. EVERYTHING I NEED!
1 Peter 4:10 As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. Poikilos - a various colors, variegated of various sorts, many sides EVERYTHING I NEED!
We often see God only in the way we have always seen Him, or how religion or tradition has shown Him to us. Colossians 1:17 And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist. What is God attempting to show me about Himself. FROM A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE
10 We have an altar from which those who serve the tabernacle have no right to eat. 11 For the bodies of those animals, whose blood is brought into the sanctuary by the high priest for sin, are burned outside the camp. 12 Therefore Jesus also, that He might sanctify the people with His own blood, suffered outside the gate. 13 Therefore let us go forth to Him, outside the camp, bearing His reproach. HEBREWS 13
What you need is outside the camp! Jesus is not contained in the religious box. Are you willing to suffer the reproach because of going outside the camp - where what you need is found? WHAT YOU NEED!
