DISTINGUISH WHO JESUS IS IN YOUR LIFE

Jesus is the prophet in the marketplace. He is also the one who placed us in our respective marketplaces to reach out to the people and to win them over to Christ. However, if Jesus does not dwell in the neighborhood of our souls, if the Word was not made flesh and dwelt among us, what good are we in the marketplace for the Lord? What is our purpose in the marketplace when the message of Jesus cannot penetrate our very being that it has transformed us?

You may be asking, “When has Christ been eliminated in my life?” It is when you stopped caring for his people the way he does. It is when you turned a blind eye to the plight of the poor and the oppressed around you. It is when you considered your interests to be higher than those of your neighbor in need. Authentic Christianity happens not just within the four corners of the worship hall; instead, it happens when you take a stand in the marketplace in the name of Jesus. The ministry does not take place a couple of hours a week during Sunday service. It is an everyday way of being that you surrender yourself to, if you consider yourself a follower of Christ.

We have been very good at drawing the line between the secular and the spiritual activities. We have placed Jesus in a box, where he is not allowed to touch certain areas of our lives that we do not want to surrender to him.

Jesus did not go to the cross in order to beautify or to add color to our lives. The cross is essential to our being. It is a matter of life and death for us. It is not optional nor is it a matter of mere convenience.

If you believe in Christ, then you must know that his Lordship is your way of being. You are not truly a Christian without completely surrendering your life to Jesus. When you received him as your Savior, when you declared him as Lord over your life, you also accepted him as your Lord. It’s not one or another—it’s a package deal.

Christ is Lord of all, or not at all. We cannot simply pick what we like about Christianity. We also cannot choose to receive the provision and reject Lordship, choose to be forgiven, yet refuse to forgive others, or choose to be healed, yet refuse to give our tithes and offering.

Jesus is the Prophet in the Marketplace

Everyday life is not less holy when it takes place outside the sanctuary. Jesus—the model of the prophet in the marketplace—points us to recognizing that the goal of sacramental priesthood is to illuminate the priestliness of all human existence.

When we see Jesus’ priesthood, according to the Gospels, we can infer his way of dealing with the people around him. He behaved simply and directly, hence catching people off-guard.

Jesus spoke to the rich and the poor, the respectable and the outcast, the weak and the powerful with the same freedom. He had followers from a broad cross section of society. He ate with everybody. He broke down walls of prejudice. He did not speak primarily about political issues, but his preaching had practical implications in all areas of life.

MASTERING THE LANGUAGE OF THE FUTURE

What is the language of the future? There are specific words that reveal that something is an opinion, an assessment or an interpretation associated with the past. On the other hand, the speech act that is associated with the future is called a declaration. A declaration can come in subtle and un-intimidating forms. It can start with a “what if,” “I think it is possible to,” “I believe we can,” and so on.

When you speak or hear a statement that begins like one of these, a new possibility is being created. A new future is in the works of creation. The more you share this new possibility, the conversation will grow. Sometimes these conversations will go against unspoken ones. But as you decide and take responsibility for your future, you will dispute unspoken conversations and replace them with future-based dialogues.

If we look at the past, we can see history display what man is capable of through the power of language. You can create anything through conversation. You have the power to create through language. Greatness has been created through simple conversations. You have the tools that are needed to communicate. All you need to do is to launch your own conversation of possibility today.

DAVID

David experienced living life both “on the court” and “in the stands”. He was a mighty warrior. Most of the time, we see him at the frontline, leading his army into victory.

The first and most popular story about David is the one where he was able to defeat Goliath, the giant Philistine. Here he was a young shepherd boy, armed with his slingshot, five pebbles and his faith in the Lord.

There are numerous moments like this when David placed himself on the court. He allowed himself to do the purposes of God. However, there was one time, wherein he intentionally he placed himself in the stands.

There was a time wherein he did not go with his men to a battle. He stayed behind. He took himself out of the court. This got him in trouble.

The adultery that David committed was done when he was off the court. He was idle. He was not in action. The product of being off the court can lead you to sin even if you are King David, man after God’s own heart. Always make it a point to be on the court. To be in control. This is most true when it comes to obeying God. When you operate from the stands, you allow yourself to be tempted and you fall for it. On the other hand, on the court, you are intentional about avoiding sin at all costs.

What would you need to do differently to move from the stands unto the courts?

Life From the Sidelines

Life from the stands can only be accessed as concepts, not as they are actually lived and experienced firsthand. Everyday common sense language limits us to speaking about what is actually happening in life from the stands. The spectator can never truly do anything on the court, in the way the player could.

In a basketball game, as a fan, you can scream, cheer, or boo all you want, but you are not the one who makes the plays, runs on the court or shoots the ball. When it comes to your own life, which roles are you playing? Are you being a loud fan who does nothing on the court? You do this by commenting and grumbling about life and what could have been, instead of doing anything about it. Or, are you the player on the court? Are you making things happen in your life?

On the court, you can actually perform. You take part. You participate. On the court, you are response-able. You can respond to your opponents. You can play to win.

Shifting from being a “content of experience” into being a “context of experience,” you need to shift the perspective you have of your life. There is a need for you to operate on the court, rather than in the stands. In fact, being a context calls you to actually “be” the court by which the game is being played.

Do you see the difference between the two ways of living? Where are you positioned in your life? Are you experiencing your life from the stands or on the court?

Identifying Limiting Conversations

Of all the limiting conversations, the most pernicious is the victim conversation, and we always address it head on. Every problem you’ve ever had in your life, they’ve all had one thing in common. You were there. Having problems in life is inevitable. We all face problems in life that puts us in a position of being vulnerable. Acceptance is the key in facing problems. When Job went through trials and persecution, he said

“Naked I came from my mother’s womb, and naked I will depart. The Lord gave and the Lord has taken away; may the name of the Lord be praised” (Job 1:21).

Job accepted what had happened to him. He still acknowledged God despite the things that bothered him. He continued in his stand in the Lord –remaining faithful – even when his wife and even his very close friends are persecuting him. In this kind of stand, despite the fact that he is being seen as a victim, he chose to stay in his victorious position in God.

As he chose to stay in his victorious position in God, he declared God in his life. When this happened, God blessed him even more. The Lord blessed the latter part of Job’s life more than the first. He had fourteen thousand sheep, six thousand camels, a thousand yoke of oxen and a thousand donkeys. And he also had seven sons and three daughters… Nowhere in all the land were there found women as beautiful as Job’s daughters, and their father granted them an inheritance along with their brothers. After this, Job lived a hundred and forty years; he saw his children and their children to the fourth generation. And so he died, old and full of years (Job 42:12-17).

Ego: The Enemy of Powerful Conversations

In our conversations, we can be overcome by fear because of many reasons. It could be the person we are talking to, the topic of the conversation, etc. Fear can be viewed as an obstacle to the enrollment process. When there is fear in the enrollment process, there is no sense of concern or care to the person being enrolled. Fear inhibits a person from being his best. It is a poor motivational tool because it makes one lose sight of the passion inside him.

Bad changes happen when fear is instilled. This makes a successful enrollment process a bit difficult to attain. If there is fear in the enrollment process, it should be dealt with right away. Fear should be eliminated because it will lead a wrong or negative kind of mindset.

The ego may most of the time pose a bad image. However, it still has its uses. After all, it cannot be fully eliminated – but can be controlled. You must have a big ego, because you have to ignore all the negative conversations – especially from negative people. Critics may have valid concerns, but you have to be careful not to allow yourself be derailed trying to be everything to people. The bread of success is buttered on the side of those being criticized, not those criticizing.

People will always have something good and bad to say to us. We cannot keep them from doing so. However, we can filter whatever negativity we are getting from them – and having a big ego is something that can help you filter them. Aside from that, being Christians who are Spirit-driven, we are to let the Spirit lead us and remind us about the Truth.

Be a Space of Inspiration

Enrollment begins with being authentic to your being. Jesus was authentic, and the people saw this. They were inspired by his authenticity to His true nature, as the Son of God.

When you are free of constrains from yourself and from others, a wide range of possibilities will begin to open up for you. You will no longer be confined by the limits of what you “should be”, but become inspired by the things that your freedom can make possible. Knowing that you can choose to do, be and say whatever you see fit and true to your nature, will make it easy for you to look ahead at what you can make of your life.

When you find something that you are truly inspired by, which follows that it is in accordance with your nature, you must enroll in this possibility. Enroll in it by giving it everything and committing to it. Do not doubt yourself or your abilities. If you can become truly inspired by a possibility, you can surely achieve it. Accomplishing this possibility is something that should come as naturally to you as becoming inspired by it in the first place.

Blame Game

What are the reasons you are mostly blaming on others? What is wrong in your life that you cannot take responsibility for? Assigning blame on others significantly impacts your power to transform your life.

No single generation has the answers or the responsibility for the future. But, we all have something to contribute. We cannot solely put all of the blame on one person. We always have something to contribute to a group, a family, a community or a society.

What we can offer may seem quite insignificant compared to what others can but it does not take away the fact that whatever the outcome is, we had contributed something to it. It is also a poor practice to put the blame on others without even looking at ourselves.

Simon Peter: Commitment to Action

Prophetic commitment is something that exists in language, and it is only by speaking and listening that you can have access to it. We all make commitments. Even self-confessed procrastinators at some point will realize that they are committed to avoid decisions.

One account in the Bible that depicts prophetic commitment to action which resulted in a new possibility is the conversation between Jesus and Simon Peter while in a boat when he walked on water (Mt. 14:22-33).

It happened again after Jesus died and resurrected from the dead.

Simon Peter said to them, “I am going fishing.” They said to him, “We will go with you.” They went out and got into the boat, but that night they caught nothing.

Just after daybreak, Jesus stood on the beach; but the disciples did not know that it was Jesus. Jesus said to them, “Children, you have no fish, have you?” They answered him, “No.” He said to them, “Cast the net to the right side of the boat, and you will find some.” So they cast it, and now they were not able to haul it in because there were so many fish. That disciple whom Jesus loved said to Peter, “It is the Lord!” When Simon Peter heard that it was the Lord, he put on some clothes, for he was naked, and jumped into the sea. But the other disciples came in the boat, dragging the net full of fish, for they were not far from the land, only about a hundred yards off. (John 21:3-8)

Everything seemed ironic. It was a time when the odds were against Simon Peter. They had all night to catch fish, but not a single one was caught. Then Jesus, a carpenter’s son, instructed him, a seasoned fisherman, to let down the nets. It was just like a kindergarten teacher coaching a rocket scientist about his job. Despite the unreasonableness and the fact that it was against any fisherman’s professional judgment, Peter committed to do as the Lord said. He faithfully let down the net as told.

Because of that faith and commitment, the result was spectacular. The nets were overflowing with too much fish that they were already about to tear. Even the boat, because of too much weight it was carrying, was almost to the point of sinking. This is what prophetic commitment does.

When we are committed to that possibility of change, we will do it despite the unreasonableness. And once we do, that possibility is realized.

What is the Lord challenging you to commit to right now, despite the impossibility you are facing?

Commitment – BIG Word!

Commitment is connected to the possibility of change. Breakthrough results are only made possible when there is a committed action. A lot of us live in an atmosphere that we agree needs a little change in one way or the other. However, we don’t even notice how our conversations DO NOT create change. They’re mostly commentaries, as if we’re watching our lives played back to us as a movie, and we’re just making comments:

“What a horrible day at work!”

“You’re treating me so badly.”

“My life is a mess.”

All of these statements are comments that describe your life. What you are saying that is creating actual change for your situation? When you shift the way you speak into the direction of making commitments, your conversations would definitely transform — so would your life:

“Lord, I am believing you for a promotion this month.”

“God, can you help me be a better spouse?”

“I offer my life to you, Lord Jesus!”

How are these statements more powerful than the ones in the previous set? No matter how much you talk about things that you hate about your life, conversations that simply describe your current situation won’t help you.

Talk about the future. Talk about what you are committed to do. Dedicate it all up to the Lord.

Who are You – If You are Your Word?

A lot of people overlook the value of integrity. However, without integrity, a person’s life will be infested by breakdowns — breakdowns in marriages, breakdowns in finances, breakdowns in parenting, and breakdowns in faith, etc.

When a person does not honor his word, chances are things in his life will fall part.

We are who we speak we are, and when what we speak does not translate into actions — then who we are become false — inauthentic.

At all costs, people with integrity honor their word. They know the cost when their integrity becomes damaged. Your commitment to honor your word allows you to live a powerful life. It may not be a popular way to live, but it allows you to create a space of workability for your life.

Whoever walks in integrity walks securely, but he who makes his ways crooked will be found out. (Proverbs 10:9)

On your spiritual journal, ask the Holy Spirit to reveal to you the answers to these questions:

  1. What are the promises you’ve made to yourself and to other people that matters to you?
  2. Have you ever failed a promise that you’ve spoken to a friend or someone dear to you? What happened?
  3. What are the common reactions you get when you break your promise?
