INFEMI SOE 2014 (Day 2) – The Shepherding Of Christ: INFEMI Sermon By Bishop Mulumbi
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil. For You are with me. Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with oil. My cup runs over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever.Psalm 23 (NKJV)
The Church is in a season of fellowship, relationship and communion with God. This is because He wants to shepherd our lives.
A shepherd guards and watches over the lives of his sheep. God wants to lead His people. He desires His people to know Him and know His voice.
God can only lead us when we are not far from Him. He needs us to be in the place of fellowship, relationship and communion with God.
You can only be sure that God is shepherding you when you are in the place of fellowship, relationship and communion with God.
It is the work of the shepherd to provide for you. “The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.”
God desires us to walk in the faith in the invisible God.
The true anointing is the manifest presence of God.
When you live in fellowship, relationship and communion with God, you will ask for a manifestation of His presence and not invite Him to show up in a meeting.
God wants to bring you into green pastures so that you possess it because you do not lie on what is not yours – Psalms 23:1
When you know Christ, you will find what is yours on the face of this earth.
For you to know someone, there must be an intensity of relationship.
My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me.John 10:27
God wants to shepherd His people. It’s time to be led. When He leads you, you can never be lost. When you know Him, He will bring you into what is yours.
But seek (aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness (His way of doing and being right), and then all these things taken together will be given you besides.Matthew 6:33
When He becomes a shepherd, you must be willing to become a sheep.
Spiritual problems come when people drink from the wrong place. “…He leads me beside quiet waters, he refreshes my soul.” Psalm 23:3
You will live in the fullness of the life of Christ when you are led by Christ. You can walk in the fullness of the life of Christ when you are led by Him.
Don’t seek the power. Seek the person of Christ. Let Him lead you. He will guide you into all truth, and what is yours.
Those who want to walk with God must get to a place where the deep calls to the deep. There are dimensions of the deep.
[Roaring] deep calls to [roaring] deep at the thunder of Your waterspouts; all Your breakers and Your rolling waves have gone over me.Psalm 42:7
Restoration of your soul can only happen in the place of relationship with God – Psalm 23:3.
Righteousness is a place of being led by the person of Christ and the person of the Holy Ghost – Psalm 23:3.
Fullness of Christ is when you walk with Him so much that you become like Him. It is for His name’s sake and for His glory – Psalm 23:3.
Psalm 23:4 – In the place of fellowship, relationship and communion with God, fear will disappear from your life.
You will know supernatural success when you have no fear. Walking with God will cause you to function anywhere because you know that He is with you wherever you are.
We are going back to a time when healing becomes a reality, because we know Christ.
Psalm 23:5 – There is an authority that will come upon believers when they fellowship, commune and relate with Christ at the table.
