Verse:

Col. 1:12~13 “Giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you for a share of the allotted portion of the saints in the light; Who delivered us out of the authority of darkness and transferred us into the kingdom of the Son of His love.”

Excerpts:

It is easy to preach to people, but it is very difficult to bring them out of the usurpation and tyranny of Satan and the world. As we shall see, Moses did not preach to the children of Israel, but he was able to rescue them from Pharaoh. Today we also need to have the authority to bring God’s people out of the usurping hand of Satan. One aspect of God’s purpose in His calling is to use us to bring others out of the usurpation and tyranny of Satan and the world.

The purpose of God’s calling is not only to bring His people out of Egypt, into the wilderness, and to the mountain. Neither is it only to have the building of the tabernacle in the wilderness. His purpose is to bring His people into Christ as the good land. As God’s called ones, we need to see that the purpose of God’s calling is not just to save people out of the world. That is only the negative aspect. Ultimately, the purpose of His calling is to bring His people into the good land so that they may enjoy Christ in His all-inclusiveness. Then God will be able to establish His kingdom. Furthermore, by bringing His chosen people into the good land, God will be able to have a dwelling place built up on the earth.

Both Moses and Paul were called for this purpose, and we are called for this purpose also. We need to bring people all the way from the world into the all-inclusive Christ for God’s kingdom and God’s building. (Life-study of Exodus, msg. 11)
