This week in the morning revival we come to two practical ways for us to live in the focus of the Lord’s recovery – being the inoculators and the ministers of the new covenant. On the one hand we are “the inoculators” – inoculating the saints against the decline of the church – and on the other hand we are “ministers of the new covenant” – ministers not of the letter but of the Spirit, who gives life. The focus of the Lord’s recovery is the corporate expression of the Triune God, the testimony of Jesus. For us to live in this focus, we need to be inoculators and ministers of the new covenant.
being an inoculator
In 2 Tim. 1:1-16 the apostle Paul presented himself as a pattern and an inoculator. He described an inoculator as being teachers, soldiers, contenders, husbandmen, and workmen. In the physical realm no one likes to be inoculated – getting a shot is not a very pleasant thing for many. But the spiritual inoculation is a pleasant one, the pleasant inoculation of the word of grace of the Triune God. Whenever we are in the meetings, conferences, trainings, etc. we are inoculated against the decline of the church! More via,
