How To Get Jesus’ Anointing

(Transcript)

Ladies and gentlemen, Jesus has called us to walk in His anointing and His power. And if you want to join Him in that, then you have to obey His commands and follow His example of love. As the scriptures say, “Anyone who claims to know him must walk as Jesus walked.” 1 John 2:5-6 (NIV)

This is why Jesus told you to sell your possessions and give to the poor…not so that you can end up destitute on the street— no, He said you should work hard so that you have something to give. But He also said that your life consists of more than what you eat and what you wear. [ Luke 14:33 ] [ Ephesians 4:28b ] [ Matthew 6:25 ] And if these are the things that you are pursuing, you are not pursuing the things that are above.

The power of this world, the power of money and material possessions and the pride of life; these things are all passing away, and they are really no power at all. But God has called you to something greater. As it says in Colossians 3:1-4 , “Since then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.”

Why was Jesus willing to come down and become poor so that many people could become rich? [ 2 Corinthians 8:9 ] Because His anointing was to reach out— not to one small tiny percentage of the upper crust of humankind— He came and He shed His blood because of God’s love for the whole world. And that is the love that God wants to fill your heart with today. [Luke 4:18-19 ] [ John 3:16 (NET) ]

So it starts, ladies and gentlemen, with obedience to the commands of Jesus Christ. He said if you want to be His disciple, you have to follow His footsteps. It’s time to get your eyes off of the earthly things that you’ve been pursuing. If you want to be filled with the anointing of Jesus Christ, it is time for you to bring a message of good news to the poor— to reach out to a hurting humanity; to not be afraid to open yourself up to their pain, because, in doing so, you are going to be filled with the glory of Jesus, with the power of his Word, and you are going to have the power to preach the good news to the poor.

Brothers and sisters read your Bible…and do what it says.
