Abiding in the Culture of Jesus

2 Corinthians 5:17
"Therefore if anyone is in Christ, they are a new creation, old things are passed away, behold all things are made new. "

This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone, a new life has begun!

When Paul declared that we are a new person with a new life in Christ, that is the total new culture in Christ Jesus. Which culture do you belong to, Jesus Culture or World Culture? A New Creation means a New Culture in Jesus Christ.

Those who embrace and live the values of the kingdom will one day collide with those who do not embrace Jesus’ culture and values. Those who do not embrace the culture of the kingdom, but still call themselves Christians, will find themselves in a collision with Jesus, Himself. Jesus is serious about His people resisting the sway of this world system and embracing His culture.

 
I believe the Lord is getting ready to remove much of the mixture in the Church. He will deliver His Bride from her conformity to the world system and have for Himself a Church without spot or wrinkle (Eph. 5:27).
 
I believe we are in a season in which it is imperative that we return to the Lord. We must turn to Him with all of our hearts, in intimacy. We must turn to Him with all our minds, embracing His ways. We must turn to Him with all of our lives and actually live out the values of His kingdom. He wants His Bride to no longer ascribe to a value system that causes her to live in compromise, complacency and opposition to His purposes. He is sounding an alarm to His Church, calling her to return to His standard for her. He is removing the gray areas and bringing His Bride to passionate holiness in love.
 
At its core, this sermon is an urgent call to the Church to turn from the ways of the world system. It is a call to wholeheartedly return to the Lord and to embrace and live the values of the kingdom of God. This sermon is geared to pierce our hearts with conviction and call us to live a Sermon on the Mount lifestyle.
 

In order for us to live a Sermon on the Mount lifestyle, we've got to understand about our identity in Christ.
 
This is our status in Jesus Christ! So we are all children of God through faith in Christ Jesus. (Galatians 3:26)
 
If we belong to Christ, then we are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.(Gal 4:6)
 

Because we are his sons and daughters, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, “Abba, Father.” (Gal 4:6)
 
So we are no longer a slave, but God’s child; and since we are his child, God has made us also an heir. (Gal 4:7) In other words we are a Kingdom citizen in the Kingdom of God. 
 
By believing in Jesus Christ we are privileged to become a child of God and to become an heir of the Kingdom of God. Therefore we should live an appropriate life as we are heirs of the Kingdom of God in the Jesus Culture.
 
As an heir of God and the citizen of the Kingdom of Heaven, we are supposed to bear the fruit of the Spirit in a totally different culture which is the Jesus culture .
 
That's why Paul urged us to bear the fruit of the Spirit in Galatians 5:23 as heirs who have received the Kingdom of Heaven. As we are walking with the Lord, we should bear the fruits of the Spirit which are love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.
 

As we live as an heir of God's Kingdom, these inner fruits of the Spirit will bear fruit in our lives. When we truly understand who we are in Christ Jesus, then we will be transformed by the power of the Holy Spirit. And we will be living powerfully as a Kingdom Focused Leader in a totally different culture, which is the Jesus Culture. 
 
In the past we were sinners, but we were transformed from our sinful natures into a new creature by the resurrecting power of the Holy Spirit. We became a citizen of the Kingdom of God. 
 
Then what is a distinctive feature of a Kingdom citizen? We are to live by the principles of the Kingdom of God which are described in Matthew 5 to 7 that is the Sermon on the Mount. 
 
We ought to bear the fruit of love as the heirs of the Kingdom of God.
 

Let us remember as we close our sermon. We are the heirs who have received the unshakable Kingdom of Heaven. This means that we are to live according to the Will of God. . We are the children of God, so that we should live as the princes and princesses of the King by bearing the fruit of the Spirit.
 

So let us live according to His Calling as His Sons and Daughters who have inherited the Kingdom of God. I pray that all of you will bear much fruit in the Spirit and walk with the Lord by living under God’s sovereign guidance as His child. And we ought to bring the Jesus Culture into this dark world. So that God will be honored and glorified through his children, that's you.

 My prayer is that you would receive revelation and that grace would be imparted into your heart, thus enabling you to truly live a life worthy of the gospel of Christ. If you desire to see the kingdom of God come and the culture of Christ manifest in your life, live with a prayerful heart, allowing the Holy Spirit to call you into the culture of the kingdom.
