FREEDOM by Mary Dorian 6-12-2020
1 Cor 12:26 the parts we see and the parts we don't. If one part hurts, every other part is involved in the hurt, and in the healing. If one part flourishes, every other part enters into the exuberance.
27 You are Christ's body that's who you are! You must never forget this. Only as you accept your part of that body does your "part" mean anything.
28 You're familiar with some of the parts that God has formed in his church, which is his "body": apostles prophets teachers miracle workers healers helpers organizers those who pray in tongues.
29 But it's obvious by now, isn't it, that Christ's church is a complete Body and not a gigantic, unidimensional Part? It's not all Apostle, not all Prophet, not all Miracle Worker,
30 not all Healer, not all Prayer in Tongues, not all Interpreter of Tongues.
31 And yet some of you keep competing for so-called "important" parts. But now I want to lay out a far better way for you. MSG
1 COR 12:26 In that way, whatever happens to one member happens to all. If one suffers, everyone suffers. If one is honored, everyone rejoices.
One Body with Different Gifts
27 You are the body of the Anointed One, and each of you is a unique and vital part of it.
28 God has placed in the church the following: First apostles, second prophets,
third teachers, then those with gifts of miracles, gifts of divine healing, gifts of revelation knowledge, gifts of leadership, and gifts of different kinds of tongues.
29 Not everyone is an apostle or a prophet or a teacher. Not everyone performs miracles
30 or has gifts of healing or speaks in tongues or interprets tongues.
31 But you should all constantly boil over with passion in seeking the higher gifts.
And now I will show you a superior way to live that is beyond comparison. TPT
Gen 1:28 God blessed them: "Prosper! Reproduce! Fill Earth! Take charge! Be responsible for fish in the sea and birds in the air, for every living thing that moves on the face of Earth."
29 Then God said, "I've given you every sort of seed-bearing plant on Earth And every kind of fruit-bearing tree, given them to you for food.
30 To all animals and all birds, everything that moves and breathes, I give whatever grows out of the ground for food." And there it was.
31 God looked over everything he had made; it was so good, so very good! t was evening, it was morning Day Six. MSG
GEN 1:28-31 So God created man and woman and shape them with his image inside them. In his own beautiful image you created his masterpiece. Yes male and female he created them. And God bless them in his love saying reproduce and be fruitful populate the earth and subdue it rain over the fish of the sea birds of the year and every creature that lives on earth. And God said I give you every seat bearing plant growing through out the earth vegetables and every fruit bearing tree with a seed within itself they will be your food. They Will also be food for every animal and bird and every creature that moves on the ground every creature with the breath of life and so it happened. God surveyed all he had made and said I love it! Foret please Tim greatly. Evening gave way to morning, DAY6 TPT
Luke 19:38 Crying, Blessed (celebrated with praises) is the King Who comes in the name of the Lord! Peace in heaven [freedom there from all the distresses that are experienced as the result of sin] and glory (majesty and splendor) in the highest [heaven]! AMP
Gal 2:4 While we were in conference we were infiltrated by spies pretending to be Christians, who slipped in to find out just how free true Christians are. Their ulterior motive was to reduce us to their brand of servitude.
5 We didn't give them the time of day. We were determined to preserve the truth of the Message for you. MSG
GAL 2:4-5 I met with them privately and confidentially because false brothers had been secretly smuggled into the church meetings. They were sent to spy on the wonderful liberty and freedom that we have in Jesus the Anointed One. Their agenda was to bring us back into the legalistic bondage of religion.
5 But you must know that we did not submit to their religious shackles[i] not even for a moment, so that we might keep the gospel of grace unadulterated for you. TPT
Gal 3:13 Christ redeemed us from that self-defeating, cursed life by absorbing it completely into himself. Do you remember the Scripture that says, "Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree"? That is what happened when Jesus was nailed to the Cross: He became a curse, and at the same time dissolved the curse.
14 And now, because of that, the air is cleared and we can see that Abraham's blessing is present and available for non-Jews, too. We are all able to receive God's life, his Spirit, in and with us by believing just the way Abraham received it. MSG
GAL 3:13-14 Yet, Christ paid the full price to set us free from the curse of the law. He absorbed it completely as he became a curse in our place. For it is written:
Everyone who is hung upon a tree is doubly cursed.
14 Jesus, our Messiah, was cursed in our place and in so doing, dissolved the curse from our lives, so that all the blessings of Abraham can be poured out upon even non-Jewish believers. And now God gives us the promise of the wonderful Holy Spirit who lives within us when we believe in him. TPT
Gal 5:1 IN [this] freedom Christ has made us free [and completely liberated us]; stand fast then, and do not be hampered and held ensnared and submit again to a yoke of slavery [which you have once put off]. AMP ↕↕↕
GAL 5:1 Let me be clear, the Anointed One has set us freenot partially, but completely and wonderfully free! We must always cherish this truth and stubbornly refuse to go back into the bondage of our past. TPT
Gal 5:8 This [evil] persuasion is not from Him Who called you [Who invited you to freedom in Christ].
9 A little leaven (a slight inclination to error, or a few false teachers) leavens the whole lump [it perverts the whole conception of faith or misleads the whole church].
10 [For my part] I have confidence [toward you] in the Lord that you will take no contrary view of the matter but will come to think with me. But he who is unsettling you, whoever he is, will have to bear the penalty. AMP
GAL 5:8-10 The One who enfolded you into his grace is not behind this false teaching that youve embraced. Not at all!
9 Dont you know that when you allow even a little lie into your heart, it can permeate your entire belief system?
10 Deep in my heart I have faith that the Lord Jesus the Anointed One, who lives in you, will bring you back around to the truth. And Im convinced that those who agitate you, whoever they think they are, will be brought under Gods judgment TPT
Gal 5:13 It is absolutely clear that God has called you to a free life. Just make sure that you don't use this freedom as an excuse to do whatever you want to do and destroy your freedom. Rather, use your freedom to serve one another in love; that's how freedom grows.
14 For everything we know about God's Word is summed up in a single sentence: Love others as you love yourself. That's an act of true freedom.
15 If you bite and ravage each other, watch out in no time at all you will be annihilating each other, and where will your precious freedom be then? MSG
Titus 2:14 Who gave Himself on our behalf that He might redeem us (purchase our freedom) from all iniquity and purify for Himself a people [to be peculiarly His own, people who are] eager and enthusiastic about [living a life that is good and filled with] beneficial deeds. AMP
TITUS 2:14 He sacrificed himself for us that he might purchase our freedom from every lawless deed and to purify for himself a people who are his very own,[a] passionate to do what is beautiful in his eyes. TPT
