Made for Dominion

Men (and women) are made for dominion.  They are made to rule and subdue the earth as God’s representatives.   This mandate has not changed since the beginning of creation.  A recovery of the dominion mandate would go a long way to remedy the absence of purpose that governs so many people’s lives.  Consider the domain that God has given you to rule, and oversee it for His glory.

    I like this: “Occupy til I come” takes on new meaning here. God is having me focus on this lately-what it means to take dominion, as His sons. I am finding out that becoming a son involves going through His baptism of fire (sufferings, trials and tribulations) in this life, and takes various forms in order that we can be conformed to His image. He learned obedience from the things He suffered; so must we if we are to be called a true son. We cannot be a son and take dominion until we go through these things, as it will be done in a fleshly way of control, involving manipulative measures, instead of by His Spirit. Beware the counterfeit “sons”, who want the easy way out and the goodies of God without submitting to His will.
