Awakening Alignment (2 of 5)
Introduction: Awakening the believer is the act of shaking the believer by a jolt, an encounter, an arousing from sleep. To be awakened is to be alert, to come to full attention and to be aware of all that God is doing and desires to do in your life. Awakening alignment is a coming to grips with anything that has destroyed the alignment of the believer to God, His Word and His principles.
I. ALIGNING MY LIFE TO JESUS
A. ALIGNING MY LIFE
1. My life is to be aligned to Jesus, His word, His authority and His kingdom. It is to be aligned with single-hearted devotion and biblical principles.
2. Watchman Nee: "A spiritual person is not just born again, but born again and walking in spiritual alignment."
3. Alignment destroyers
a. The world: Alignment can be corrupted by the spirit of this world.
b. The flesh: Alignment can be ruined by the twisted power of the flesh.
c. The devil: Alignment can be hindered by the work of the devil.
B. ALIGNING A LIFE THAT HAS NEVER BEEN ALIGNED TO JESUS
1. To align to Christ is to move from the kingdom of darkness to the kingdom of God, to move from being "out of Christ" to being "in Christ."
2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.
Colossians 1:13 He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love…
a. To be aligned, we must first be made alive in our spirit. We must be reborn in our spirit.
John 3:3 Jesus answered and said to him, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God."
b. To align your life you must be "in" Christ. There are only two kinds of people: those "in Christ" and those "out of Christ." In Christ you have the life of God-new life; every thought, act, possession, relationship is either in Christ or out of Christ.
