For this cause we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will IN ALL WISDOM AND SPIRITUAL UNDERSTANDING; That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and INCREASING IN THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOD; STRENGTHENED WITH ALL MIGHT, according to his glorious power, UNTO ALL PATIENCE AND LONGSUFFERING WITH JOYFULNESS; Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: WHO HATH DELIVERED US FROM THE POWER OF DARKNESS, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: Colossians 1: 9-13. When a mature sheep walks this kind of physical AND spiritual Walk With Christ, there are no labels for him to follow. I'll explain. This kind of Walk includes all, or part of, the Gifts of the Holy Spirit, all, or part of, the Fruits of the Holy Spirit, all, or part of, the Whole Armour of God, AND all, or part of, the 5 Fold Ministry. He won't care what the names, titles, and positions are of what he is doing, he's just going "to do" in Obedience to the Leading of the Holy Spirit and leave the numbers to others. And to highlight just one part of all this, did you notice he is Living "unto ALL PATIENCE and longsuffering"? A man who is actually ASKING for Patience? Being tested in Patience, AND PASSING THE TESTS??? All these Things are ours FOR THE ASKING! A simple prayer of, "Use me Lord, in any Way You want", with Obedience, is all it takes to get this ball rolling. Again, blind Obedience is all it takes to start Living in these Attributes of the Lord. BE ENCOURAGED BELIEVER, the Lord IS talking to you! This Life IS FOR ALL who simply ask, THE PRICE OF ADMISSION HAS ALREADY BEEN PAID FOR by the Shed Blood of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus, The Christ. This is not for one of "those guys" with all of their super qualifications, this is for ANY sheep who will simply BELIEVE, and, Be Blessed.
