All of Jesus preaching and ministry can be summed up in the announcement “The kingdom of God is at hand.” (Mark 1:15) Heaven has invaded earth and love is reducing broken lives out of the darkness. Joining the cause of Jesus means standing up for those that can’t stand for themselves with Biblical justice and taking back territory from the enemy for the kingdom of God.
The Holy Spirit is the giver of all gifts. He gives ministry abilities called "Spiritual Gifts" to all believers so they can contribute to the family of God and mission to the world. The church operates as the body of Christ when each person seeks to function in accordance with their gifts.
Jesus continues to live out his life on Earth through His corporate body, the Church. The "Body of Christ" is not just a figure of speech but conveys the reality that Christ lives through His people. Together God's people extend the life of Jesus to the world. When we serve others we show that God loves them and we show God that we love Him.
Disciples of Jesus have three enemies: our old nature, the world's temptations, and demonic forces. The Holy Spirit helps us overcome all challenges, temptations and attacks, but we must first understand the victory and authority we have in Christ. What lives in the dark, dies in the light.
