Obedience of faith

Through Him we have received grace and apostleship for obedience to the faith among all nations for His name, (Romans 1:5 NKJV)

Here is the Greek Interlinear's original translation:

 By whom we-received grace (a gift or blessing, favor) and apostleship (commission, duty of apostle) unto obedience (obedience, submissiveness, compliance) of-faith (faith, belief, trust, confidence) among all the Gentiles in-behalf-of the name of-him

As a new covenant believer, I have received grace (God's unmerited favor) because I am covered by the blood of Jesus. I have inherited 'The Blessing' of Abraham (Galatians 3:14) and am called only to obey 'the faith'. Obedience in the New Testament (covenant) does not refer to the law, which has already been fulfilled on our behalf, but of trust in Jesus and His finished work.

Random thought

If we have been transplanted into the kingdom of light, there is no room amongst us for darkness. You cannot have both. What happens to you walk into a dark room and turn on the light?

Matthew 5:16
Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.

How are you portraying God's light in your life today? I'd love to know!

You are a NEW creation

This may be a bit jumbled, but it's by far my most powerful revelation!

Each person has three parts, spirit (the "real" you), soul (mind, will, and emotions), and body.
Everything in existence is either good or evil, light or dark. There is no middle ground and no in-between.

When you are born, you are born into sin, into darkness, and into Satan's Kingdom (John 12:31, Ephesians 2:1-2, Revelation 12:7-11).
When you are born again, your spirit is reborn into God's kingdom. Through Jesus, you are seated at the right hand of the Most High. You have inherited God's nature, His splendor. There is no sin in heaven, only light.

John 10:10 says that God came to give us life, and life abundantly, and that the enemy came to seek, kill, and destroy. The good news is that God's kingdom and Satan's kingdom are different locations! Once again, there is no middle ground. If you are in the kingdom of light, darkness cannot touch you. They cannot co-mingle.

-- We are IN the world, not OF the world.
-- We are to reign (yes, reign!) on Earth for the name of Jesus.
-- We are to be the light in the midst of darkness. To administer the blessing to others.
-- When you understand that every affliction is from the enemy and that your spirit is untouchable, your physical body and/or circumstances will be untouchable.

Here are some of my references, in no particular order:
Revelation 5:9-10
Romans 8:28
2 Corinthians 5:17
John 3:3
Colossians 1:13
