Thank you for joining me on this exciting journey of Partnering with Heavenly Father. Let me ask you a fun question or two:
Does powerful Partnership with Father require officing together with Him? Does it go to another level if we office with Him above and He offices with us down here? If so, that probably requires a huge upgrade from our current belief system. I am convinced from Jesus’s partnership with Father, that He officed/abided with Father above and Father officed/abided with Him down here. I believe our partnership is to have offices in both places. It is good for both partners to enjoy being at the same location together.
Most of us have developed our belief system of relating to Our Father in Heaven from down here on earth. This is a great foundation, but it has Him officing up there and leaves us officing down here: living by grace and depending on His help from above. Father has also given us His written Word, the gifts of the Spirit, the on-site ministry of Holy Spirit, as well as tremendous mercy & unlimited forgiveness. It is all part of a good foundation that can be built upon and taken to new levels.
Paul coached us in Ephesians 2 and Colossians 3 that Father raised us up and set us next to Him at His right hand in Christ. Why? To settle identity and sonship! To settle Partnership! To experience abiding in Christ! To learn to office with Father above!
What is this Partnering with Father all about? CONNECTION! We are going after the multi-dimensional abiding that Jesus lived with Father and demonstrated . . . the same abiding He called us to: “If you abide in Me and I abide in You, you will bear much fruit, but apart from me you can do nothing!” (Jn 15:5).
Jesus set the example for us. He partnered with Father above and with Father on location through the abiding. Jesus is our coach. He is the abiding coach! Let’s get Him to take us into the exquisite partnership He has with Father. As we follow Him, He will focus us on the Father! Let’s take this journey together and get Him to coach us!
