Horizontal Ministry Flows out of Vertical Worship! [podcast]

“He must increase, but I must decrease.” John 3:30

KINGDOM PERSPECTIVE: The cross message is super encouraging because the more you go down, the more the LORD is going to raise you upward.

Horizontal ministry flows out of Vertical Worship! And also vertical worship causes enlightenment (2 Corinthians 3:16-18)….

The cross is first upward (vertical), then outward, horizontal.

The cross life daily assures that the Holy Ghost of God is raising you upward and using you outward.

This is how divine ministry flows from the life of the saint.

“Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body. 11 For we which live are alway delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh. 12 So then death worketh in us, but life in you.” 2 Corinthians 4:10-12

As the death of Christ works in you, the resurrection life of Christ is going to powerfully work in and raise upward your life!

“But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.” Romans 8:11

Are you beginning to grasp this central original Gospel message of the cross of Christ beloved of God? It’s the re-enactment of the death burial and resurrection of Jesus in your daily life. Read Romans 6 each morning this week.

“It is the grace of God working through us”… Amen! ‘But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I labored more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me.’ -1 Cor. 15:10  I die, He raises me up in Christ to good works. His glory not mine, all to Thee, O LORD, I owe; all to Thee, O LORD, I owe! Thank you for the precious blood of Jesus Christ that washes away my sins ” Jon Crane

The Remnant of Christ is known in that they are Christ-centered and therefore cross grounded!

“And the remnant that is escaped of the house of Judah shall again take root DOWNWARD, and bear fruit UPWARD:” Isaiah 37:31

God’s people are taking “root DOWNWARD” (death and burial) and therefore being raised upward – they are bearing “fruit UPWARD.” Boom. The divine economy is a cross economy: Death – Burial – Resurrection!

Always remember dear saints, there are no shortcuts.

God will only raised up those who are bowed down before Him.

“The LORD upholdeth all that fall, and raiseth up all those that be bowed down.” Psalms 145:14

The LORD uses crucified vessels.

ARE you asking God to use you today?

Christ’s true remnant is about His business.

YOUR PRAYER: Heavenly Father, I come to You in the name of Jesus Christ my LORD. Please forgive my iniquitous self-idolatry, for not truly trusting and walking with You on Your stated terms. I ask Your forgiveness for all my sins right this moment. Please wash me afresh, wash me clean in the precious blood of Jesus Christ. I love You LORD Jesus. Please increase LORD in this life as I choose to decrease this day to joyfully honor You to have the full pre-eminence in this life You gave. Have Your way in me from this moment forth. I am all Yours Jesus and I know You are all mine. Anoint me to be dead and buried and raised up to bear fruit to Your eternal glory. In the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
