Who IS the Called Remnant?
The Body of Christ
How can you recognize if you are a part of God’s “Called Remnant”? Because you will find that you hunger for more. That you are happiest talking with the Father. That you hunger with an unsatiable hunger for Him.
I Remember when I first came to Christ 30 years ago, it was an awakening. I had not known what Jesus had done for me – I grew up in a predominantly Jewish neighborhood, Jesus was not a topic of conversation. But ohhhhhh how sweet the taste when I came into the knowledge of what God had done for me. (You can read my testimony by Hitting the Button Below).
Sweetest day of my life was when the Holy Spirit removed the scales off of my spiritual eyes and I came into the full saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, who He is, what He had done and What He is going to do! I made Him my Lord and Savior! And as a new Christian with a new Bible I could not read enough of it! Gobbled it down! I would fall asleep with my face in the Bible. My spirit was awakened. There WAS more to life than what I thought!
You see, we were created with a hunger for God and while ol’slewfoot has made a great majority ignorant of it, once God wakes us up and we realize what we are missing out on – the hunger is real. Are YOU hungry for the Lord? God has so much more! Taste and see that the Lord is good!” (Psalm 34:8) and once you have had a taste – you will want More and More and MORE. If you crave God than yes, you are part of the God Called Remnant. Keep tasting by praying, reading your Word, surrounding yourself with other like-minded members in the body of Christ and growing in Him so that in turn, He can use you as His vessel to help bring someone else out of the darkness into the living knowledge of His love.:
“Many Members, One in the Body of Christ”
(1st Corinthians 12:12)
An important fact is that God did not call us to be an island. As you may have already seen on this page, we are MANY members but one in the body of Christ. Therefore it is important to link arms with others who make up the body of Christ. This is crucial for many reasons. One – because God tells us:
“Do not forsake the assembling of ourselves together.”(Hebrews 10:25)
Why? Well, my own opinion is because there is strength in numbers. “A cord of three strands is not easily broken.” (Ecclesiastes 4:12) It is a powerful thing when brethren get together, to fellowship, to pray, to worship – it makes a big difference in one’s walk with Christ. I would suggest praying and asking the Lord to bring Sisters and Brothers in Christ who are like-minded in their desire to grow in Christ and serve the Lord into your life. And trust me, He will!
“Ask, Seek & Knock…”
The body has different organs that function differently, the beauty in the body is that although different, a healthy body functions all its working parts harmoniously! For instance, God has called me to write – I consider myself “a finger” on the body of Christ! But one of my closest friend’s (Sister-in-Christ) considers herself to be an eye, God has given her spiritual discernment when it comes to people. Another considers herself to be part of the mouth because her gift is speaking! Whatever your calling is, it is vital and important to the plans the Lord has for your life. Don’t know what that is? ASK HIM. He WILL reveal it. When God revealed to me that I was a “finger” I was surprised because writing is something I have done since a child and I didn’t think it was very important – yet it is. Someone recently told me not to be little my calling and pointed me towards
Exodus 31:18 “When the LORD finished speaking to Moses on Mount Sinai, he gave him the two tablets of the covenant law, the tablets of stone inscribed by the finger of God.”
A finger serves a very important role on the body and is no less important than any other part. Discover what YOU are and rejoice that YOU are very important to God. He loves you. He has a purpose for your life, a plan.
“He Has Called YOU By Name…”
YOU are part of God’s called remnant. He has called you by name. Pray and ask God about getting connected with other believers. I have showcased four very-dear-to-my-heart ministries that are reaching out to people as Jesus reached out and allowing God to make a difference as He requested Peter to make a difference, “Feeding His sheep.” (See John 21:17). God is moving and there is no greater joy than functioning as God intended you to function. He has a purpose for you. Discover just what that purpose is and you will find “the peace that passes all understanding” That is spoken about in Philippians 4:17. Its true. There is no greater joy than being in the center His will. It is true. TRUE joy is found in Him.
