”…so that the lame and halting limbs may not be put out of joint, but rather, may be cured.” [Hebrews 12:13b AMP]
If you wish to know ALL the ingredients necessary for healing use the amplified bible! I call it my fat bible – through use of many similar words and explanations it always and ever expands the revelation of God’s Grace.
Every CORE issue effects every joint and limb. In the body of Christ there are many ‘limbs’ that need strengthening and that can only happen when the joints – ‘broken relationships’ and are kept from being ‘put out’. Meaning when relationships are bound and bonded together by Grace the limbs – those parts that allow the body to move forward – are cared for and cured! ”So then, brace up and reinvigorate and set right your slackened and weakened and drooping hands, and strengthen your feeble and palsied and tottering knees” [Hebrews 12:12 AMP]
What does that look like?
PEACE – Not an automatic attitude to live in, but an intentional necessity… we are told to, “Strive to live in peace with everybody” [v.14] – not a special few but everybody.
PURSUE – Consecration that produces holiness – ”…pursue that consecration and holiness without which no one will ever see the Lord.” [v.14 AMP] There is a goal to striving for peace – it produces consecration at the CORE and a holiness that is prerequisite for seeing the Lord.
The Grace that learns and looks for the precious in the vile – that cleanses the core by its power and then fills to the fullness of God will strengthen the body to multiply and mobilize the kingdom of God.
