Taking Ground In Christ Jesus

  1. 1. Taking Ground Laboring In The Lord
  2. 2. God made a covenant with Abraham
  3. 3. God said: On the same day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying: “To your descendants I have given this land, from the river of Egypt to the great river, the River Euphrates— the Kenites, the Kenezzites, the Kadmonites, the Hittites, the Perizzites, the Rephaim, the Amorites, the Canaanites, the Girgashites, and the Jebusites.” (Genesis 15:18-21, NKJV)
  4. 4. He confirmed it in: • Numbers 34:1-12 • Ezekiel 47:13-20
  5. 5. He sent Joshua into the Promised Land: After the death of Moses the servant of the Lord, it came to pass that the Lord spoke to Joshua the son of Nun, Moses’ assistant, saying: 2 “Moses My servant is dead. Now therefore, arise, go over this Jordan, you and all this people, to the land which I am giving to them—the children of Israel. 3 Every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon I have given you, as I said to Moses. 4 From the wilderness and this Lebanon as far as the great river, the River Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and to the Great Sea toward the going down of the sun, shall be your territory. (Joshua 1:1-4)
  6. 6. When Solomon was King: Israel was at the peak of its power and size. And yet, only 10% of the land was occupied. What happened?
  7. 7. Why? Every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon I have given you, as I said to Moses. (Joshua 1:3) They never took the land… What a pity!
  8. 8. Does this apply to us? Yes it does. How much of the Spirit-filled life are you living? Are you walking in the fullness of the life that Jesus Christ died and rose from the grave to give us?
  9. 9. We are no different… Just like Israel, we must walk in it: Every place that the sole of your foot will tread upon I have given you, as I said to Moses. (Joshua 1:3)
  10. 10. You gotta put your soul into it! We must walk in it with all of our heart, mind, and soul: Jesus said to him, You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the first and great commandment. (Matthew 22:37-38)
  11. 11. It is a life of sacrifice: For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled. (2 Corinthians 10:3-6)
  12. 12. And it is difficult: For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled. (2 Corinthians 10:3-6)
  13. 13. But… • God will go with you, • And the rewards are eternal. Let’s take a look at the concept of taking ground. There is much ground to be taken in our lives and for the kingdom of God!
  14. 14. Taking Ground Laboring In The Lord
